New film season at Whirled Cinema, Loughborough Junction

Whirled Art Productions have been operating from the railway arches at Loughborough Junction since 2001, transforming it into an art space including a studio complex and cinema. For the south London artist on the breadline, the latter is particularly exciting: they're screening an impressive programme of 3 films weekly, to which entry is entirely free.

As part of their new season for 09, they're showing Spanish cinema verité thriller [• REC], which looks and sounds unmissable and seems to have been universally acclaimed.

Rec is a pelting vérité nightmare about a television crew locked in a city tenement with a flesh-eating virus. The Spanish equivalent of the National Guard hems the hapless civilians in the building under pain of death for those who attempt to escape. The satire about repression is as bald and brutal as the shapely young television presenter's fight to survive. The footage shot by her camera crew sustains the illusion of spontaneity.
More of a rollercoaster white-knuckle ride a than movie, at barely 80 minutes Rec is too frantic to overstay its welcome. You will leave the cinema shaken and scared...
