CAPITAL REVIEWER continues to review Videos on Demand, Home Cinema Releases, BBC Culture in Quarantine (reviewing here: Mike Bartlett's ALBION with Victoria Hamilton) and other platforms for the arts including Virtual Tours across galleries starting with Johanna Unzueta's aptly titled TOOLS FOR LIFE.
On our screens on DVD or VOD reviewing now in CAPITAL REVIEWER: THE TRUTH with screen divas Catherine Deneuve and Juliette Binoche, END OF THE CENTURYechoing LA LA LAND for two guys and WHO YOU THINK I AM showcasing the cinematic Binoche again.
Rounding up for March as cinemas, theatres and galleries close for the foreseeable future we acknowledge the amazing contribution across the arts. In cinemas and hopefully on VOD the illuminous Emily Beecham starred in LITTLE JOE (Best Actress Cannes 2019) and Keira Knightley made feminism fun in MISBEHAVIOUR. On STAGE in the CAPITAL, Simon Callow revived the award winning LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, at the Park Theatre with an English translation.
At GALLERIES around the CITY we enjoyed PICASSO AND PAPER unwrapping the twentieth century master's techniques at the Royal Academy, Piccadilly whilst a rich light was thrown on the seventeenth century NICOLAES MAES, DUTCH MASTER OF THE GOLDEN AGE, at the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square. The Estorick, Islington, focussed on A FUTURIST LIFE: TULLIO CRALI and further east, Whitechapel Gallery revived the art of figurative painting in RADICAL FIGURES: PAINTING IN THE NEW MILLENIUM.
Keep checking this space as the arts adapts and evolves in these strange and eventful times.
