CHOSEN BY ANDREW PULVER

"As a reasonably longstanding Oxford resident, the arrival of a Curzon in the rebuilt Westgate shopping centre is fantastic news for the city's cineastes. I can't say Oxford itself has a massive cinematic tradition, though it gets by on providing the backdrop for numerous student-oriented literary films such as 'Brideshead Revisited' and 'Testament of Youth'. (Quite where 'Oxford Blues' fits into all this is anyone's guess.) The list I've come up with is a sort of secret playlist of the films I'd like to see the Oxford Curzon programme at some point – all of them personal favourites of one kind or another. One of them – the Oscar winning 'Ida', directed by Pawel Pawlikowski, has hidden associations with Oxford: one of the key characters, the state prosecutor, was inspired by someone he met and became friends with while he lived in the city." - Andrew Pulver, Film Editor at The Guardian
