Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985)
Wednesday 25th November 2015
A dreary prison cell is shared by two men who, in terms of lifestyle, could not be further apart. Molina (William Hurt) is a homosexual convicted for 'obscene behaviour', the other, Valentin (Raul Julia), is a revolutionary who has been continually tortured by the same totalitarian authorities.
As the minutes slowly pass, Molina invents a story based on the glamorous cinema of yesteryear - a Nazi propaganda film involving an unlikely love affair. At first, this extravagant display of personality doesn't bode well for the cellmates' relationship but as time and the story progresses a new kind of friendship begins to blossom.
Featuring an extraordinary Oscar® winning performance from William Hurt, Kiss of the Spider Woman, re-released on DVD and Blu-ray by Curzon Artificial Eye on 25th January 2016, has proven to be a truly timeless cinematic masterpiece.
