UCI presents weird, life-changing films little seen on local big screens

Next Thursday sees a double bill of Blow Up, Michelangelo Antonioni's 1966 snapshot of a now long gone "swinging" London, and Neil Jordan's ass-kicking 1992 political/gender-bender thriller The Crying Game(if I've just spoiled the plot for you, you've lived a sadly sheltered life). The show continues the following week as well, with toxic treats such as Cronenberg's Naked Lunch, Coppola's The Conversation, and much, much more besides.
