New British Films

Ciklus novog britanskoga filma osamdesetih godina, koji će se prikazivati slijedeća četiri četvrtka u Tuškancu, otvara Vučja družina, irskoga redatelja Neila Jordana, neuobičajena interpretacija bajke o Crvenkapici u neobičnom hororu u kojem su vukovi zapravo vukodlaci.

U ciklus igra i originalni horror Tonyja Scotta Glad, koji je imao i američkog koproducenta MGM. Mlađi brat renomiranijeg Ridleya Scotta pozornost Hollywooda je zaslužio ponajviše vizualno atraktivnim reklamama, što je vidljivo i u ovom filmu koji ipak i pored atraktivnih i popularnih tumača glavnih uloga - Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie i Susan Sarandon - nije u premijernom prikazivanju stekao naklonost kritičara, a ni komercijalni uspjeh, ali je kasnije stekao kultni status.

Mike Figgis se afirmirao prvijencem, uspješnim autorskim krimićem Burni ponedjeljak realiziranim s američkim koproducentom, a u njemu su se pojavili i popularni američki glumci Tommy Lee Jones i Melanie Griffith uz britansku glazbenu zvijezdu Stinga i mladog glumca Seana Beana kojemu je ovaj film pomogao u stvaranju respektabilne glumačke karijere.

Najznačajniji i društveno najprovokativniji film osamdesetih godina u Velikoj Britaniji a i u ovom ciklusu je Moja lijepa praonica, drugi film do tada vrlo cijenjenog televizijskog redatelja Stephena Frearsa po scenariju Hanifa Kureishija, sa sjajnom ekipom tada još malo poznatih glumaca među kojima je Daniel Day-Lewis upravo ovim filmom napravio odlučujući korak prema statusu zvijezde. Film na vrlo zanimljiv način problematizira probleme multikulturalnog i višerasnog društva u postkolonijalnoj Velikoj Britaniji. Originalnost ovog filma izbacila je u prvi plan ne samo Frearsa i Day-Lewisa, nego i Kureishija (kojem je otac iz bogate useljeničke pakistanske obitelji, a majka Engleskinja) koji je postao jedan od vodećih autora tada mlade generacije književnika.
