Seconds (1966) (15)

TICKETS: £5 (under 24’s £4)


This Lynchian nightmare of identity is one of the most hypnotic pictures to emerge from the depths of the Hollywood New Wave. Stunningly realised by James Wong Howe’s monochrome cinematography, Rock Hudson’s daring performance as an unhappy middle-aged man who undergoes radical surgery to reinvent his life, is an experience that once seen is impossible to forget.

Isn’t it easier to go forward when you know you can’t go back?

“Adapting for the screen, whether it be a novel, a stage play, a biography, a historical event or a newspaper article, presents its own particular problems, perhaps more technical, but in no way less intricate than writing an original screenplay. I’ve spent decades ruminating on these issues, without necessarily having reached any firm conclusions, though I do by now, I suppose, have a few tentative suggestions. I’m delighted at the opportunity to visit Bridport to be able to kick some of these suggestions around.”
