Time off - Glasgow Film Festival

22nd February 2008 at 00:00
The Cottage. Not a hideous thriller in which the director slow-pans over garden gnomes, rock gardens and Wedgwood figurines, but the second thriller from Paul Andrew Williams, the director of London to Brighton, which premieres this weekend at the Glasgow Film Festival.

The psycho kidnap flick will be joined on the big screen by Savage Grace (pictured below), an incest drama starring Julianne Moore, and Quentin Tarantino's enjoyably schlocky Grindhouse. But if that's a bit high-brow for you, you could always try Zombie Strippers, a "political satire" featuring "live dead nudes". It stars Jenna Jameson, the queen of porn. And they say the golden age of cinema is dead.

If you've still got the appetite, Sunday brings a screening of A Life in the Death of Joe Meek, which tracks the decline of the spooky 1960s record producer, who believed he could commune with the ghost of Buddy Holly.

And the festival closes with the equally mainstream date movie Lars and the Real Girl, a romantic comedy about a sweet guy from small town America, who starts dating a blow-up doll called Bianca. www.glasgowfilmfestival.org.uk.
