NOVEMBER 28TH AT 19:00, KING’S CROSS SOCIAL CLUB
November is a cold, tough month so The Duke invites his audience to join him in a celebration of the toughest films ever to appear on the silver screen!
Yes, this month, The Duke celebrates all that is hardboiled: men, women, villains, lackeys, liquor – tough things that like to play fast and rough, leaving no room to breathe. Look, see – this is the month The Duke brings together all those vicious bastards we all love to hate.
However in true Duke style the film we’ve chosen will not be familiar to anyone – a 1973 oddity from Egypt called ‘Kuwait Connection’ (AKA Wolves Don’t Eat Meat!) – the bastard child of Italian crime films and French art-house featuring an assassin with a gold sniper rifle, copious amounts of violence and wall-to-wall sleaze. This will be the FIRST TIME EVER this amazing title has been screened out of its home-country and the first time it has been made available with any sort of English subtitles.
If that wasn’t enough The Duke has amassed tough guy trailers to make you wince – hold on to you whisky glass because these are sure to drive you to the edge!
As usual we will also have our short film full of visceral action, music to plan a heist to and a quiz full of the usual suspects and music that all the known villains are grooving to!
