A MOST VIOLENT YEAR is a searing crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city’s history. From acclaimed writer/director J.C. Chandor, and starring Oscar Isaac (INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS) and Jessica Chastain (ZERO DARK THIRTY), this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay. J.C. Chandor’s third feature examines one immigrant’s determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family, and––above all––his unwavering belief in the righteousness of his own path.

The feature will be preceded by a short pre-show which will include a short film and a selection of trailers from the trashy, lurid heyday of Grindhouse cinema (Max 30 mins).
Grindhouse Dublin is proud to present Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer uncut and on the big screen. This hard hitting masterpiece has always been the subject of controversy. It was filmed in 1985, but due to censorship problems it was only screened at the Chicago Film Festival, until its official release in 1990. The film ran into further problems with James Ferman, head of the BBFC, where it was heavily censored and re-edited by Ferman himself resulting 113 seconds of cuts.
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is probably the most realistic and unsettling of all serial killer films due to its realistic tone, documentary style and 16mm filming. No Hollywood gloss here. This is one film that will both challenge, and stay with you. We dare you to sit through this one in a darkened cinema and not be terrified by its hard hitting content. Many serial killer films have come and gone, but Henry is one that will remain with you forever.

"Inherent Vice," is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello's ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin...well, easy for her to say. It's the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," that's being way too overused - except this one usually leads to trouble. With a cast of characters that includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, LAPD Detectives, a tenor sax player working undercover, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists... Part surf noir, part psychedelic romp - all Thomas Pynchon.
