The Final Programme + Q&A with Michael Moorcock at BFI Southbank (10th August)
By Sir John Barbic... at Jul 5 2010 - 12:46
Michael Moorcock's fast moving futuristic update of the thrilling adventure tales of yesteryear.

10 Aug / 20:30 / NFT1

The Final Programme film poster
Pulp novelist, sci-fi pioneer and sometime member of Hawkwind, Michael Moorcock has written scores of subversive, groundbreaking cult books but tonight's film is a rare example of a big screen adaptation – don't miss this chance to see it. Jon Finch is terrific as hip, party-hungry adventurer Jerry Cornelius, troubled by the recent passing of his father but reluctantly on the hunt for the mysterious 'Final Programme': dad’s design for the perfect self-replicating human. Meanwhile, his sister is missing and his drugged-up brother holds fierce dominion over the house where the missing microfilm is supposedly located. Somehow Jerry has to get his head together, and deal with gorgeous, icily seductive Miss Bruner (Jenny Runacre) – who's also after the design. Terrific performances all round in this fast-moving, futuristic update of the thrilling adventure tales of yesteryear, with an unmissable supporting turn from a cigar-chomping Sterling Hayden.

Priority booking for August screenings is available to BFI Members from 11.30am on Tuesday 6 July.
Public booking for August opens on Tuesday 13 July.

We're hoping that members of Moorcock's Miscellany who are able to make it to the screening/Q&A will be able to meet up with Mike afterwards, though this remains to be confirmed at present. Keep an eye on the Moorcock at the BFI discussion thread for further annoucements!
