In London cinemas

Duncan Sarkies’ 2006 movie Out of the Blue – a dramatic reconstruction of the 1990 Aramoana massacre – is showing in London this week and continues to receive favourable reviews. The Guardian says the film “opens with a swell of tension as the town goes about its business in the hours before the killing, making for unbearably intimate viewing.” While the Observer calls it “a memorable account of a community uniting under pressure.” View London says Out of the Blue is one of the best films of the year. “Robert Sarkies’ direction is nothing short of astonishing … a remarkable film that succeeds as both a gripping thriller, a terrifying urban horror story and a profoundly moving testament to a real-life tragedy. Highly recommended.”
