Make Mine a Double on Curzon Home Cinema

Curzon Home Cinema has announced Make Mine a Double, a special season of double bills curated by the acclaimed novelist and filmmaker Chris Petit.

Of his season, Petit wrote: "OK. Here’s what I suggest. I propose doing 35 double bills, with a knock-on effect in that the second film of the previous double becomes the first in the next, thus allowing any one film to be paired with two other films. The principle is based on my belief that films are more interesting for not being viewed in isolation and being paired, for rhyming or contrasting reasons, even if it’s only an art movie colliding with a genre picture. This programme allows for a kind of walk through cinema in that it gives you a run of over 30 films that wouldn’t necessarily get linked otherwise. Some pairings are obvious; some not.”

Presented as part of the Museum of Loneliness project, Petit’s extraordinary and unique programming vision - and all the double bills - can now be explored in full on the Curzon website. His latest film, Content ("an ambient 21st century road movie"), has also been made available.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
