Costume drama of the week:</b> In <i>The King Is Dancing</i>, Corbiau leaps from one scene to the next, without much bridging or build-up, and keeps the emotional temperature high. He all but dispenses with the recitative; the film is all arias, writes Shaun de Waal.
Argentinian-born film producer Fernando Sulichin will be in Durban during the city's International Film Festival to conduct several workshops and to introduce the South African prÃ¨miere of the Sulichin-produced <i>Bully</i>, the new film by Larry Clark -- a frank and explicit portrait of the violent, nihilistic youth of the United States, based on a real-life murder in Florida.
b>Creature feature of the week: </b> Johnston has dispensed almost entirely with lyrical wonder and concentrated on horror and violence, the result is a dark, almost morbid picture that is unsuitable for younger children and squeamish adults, writes Philip French.
