the barbican hosts my twisted valentine screenings
For all the Bridget Jones’ out there who hate Valentine’s Day.
Do those cute little Cupid cherubs make you feel murderous inside? Do the gushing, lovey-dovey OTT displays of emotion on Valentine's Day make you throw up in your mouth a little bit? If you want a place to hideout until the PDA is over, look no further. Starting today and running until 15th February, the Barbican are hosting an anti-Valentine's Day weekend called My Twisted Valentine, screening films that will make you make sure you never fall in love again…
From the lonely-heart murderers in The Honeymoon Killers to the manic obsession of a trumpet player with a dead ringer for the blonde bombshell that he witnessed the cold-blooded killing of in Venus in Furs, these are the films that will have you making a pact with yourself to never say the words "til death do us part."
Here's the full line up…
The Honeymoon Killers
Harold and Maude
Venus in Furs
The Virgin Suicides
