CineVue has teamed up with the BFI this month to offer TWO lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to see the late Ken Russell’s 1971 cult classic The Devils on Friday 9 November at the BFI Southbank (8:45pm), as part of their Uncut season. Featuring magnificent performances from Oliver Reed and Vanessa Redgrave, as well as Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’ sublimely dissonant score, The Devils stands as a profound commentary on religious hysteria, political persecution and moral corruption. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
The BFI’s Uncut season, celebrating the BBFC’s centenary this November with screenings of a whole host and daring cult and classic movies, presents an overview of some of the issues that have troubled and occasionally confounded our censors over a century of cinema, using key titles to illustrate the Board’s changing responses to confrontational material. Examples of films that will be featured in the Uncut season include Richard Brooks’ teensploitation film Blackboard Jungle, John Waters’ transgressive Pink Flamingos and Kirby Dick’s documentary Sick – The Life & Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist.
For a chance to win one of TWO pairs of tickets to see Ken Russell’s The Devils at the BFI Southbank on Friday 9 November, just answer the following question:
