Mark Kermode: Live in 3D


Film conversation is a notoriously difficult subject to negotiate, balancing in depth knowledge with universal appeal requires shrewd dexterity that is nothing short of infectious when witnessed. Mark Kermode: Live in 3D adeptly manages to combine these two crucial elements resulting in a joyous evening of cine-literate wonderment. Those familiar with Kermode's work can expect his usual trademark verve - reeling off insightful critiques alongside a breadth of trivia that would put most to cinephiles to shame.

Audience led questioning makes for a uniquely fresh experience each time, with this particular event navigating an encompassing range of topics from dissecting the genius of Will Poulter to the futile remake of adrenaline pumping thriller Point Break. Questions can be sent in before hand via Twitter using the hash-tag MK3D or asked live on the evening.

The surprise guest appearance of Elvis super fan and all round nice guy Sanjeev Bhaskar was a cherry topping highlight, which saw Sanjeev deliver a proficiently passionate defence of The King's acting prowess that instantaneously made me contemplate which Presley box set to buy first.

There are four distinct categories covered throughout the ninety minute event, these include Q&A, Listography, Guilty Pleasures, and Sound and Vision each set to absorbing film clips and lively debate. Held at the prestigious BFI Southbank Mark Kermode: Live in 3D is set to become a routinely sold out monthly event which is a bona-fide must see treat for any discerning film fan.
