Watching Alexandre Rockwell’s terrific Little Feet made us want to revisit his film In The Soup, one of those groovy indie movies you might have caught on a rainy Tuesday at the Electric (during its early 90s carrot-cake incarnation). Well, it’s still a blast. Steve Buscemi is a wannabe screenwriter who gets taken under the wing of dubious money-man Joe (Seymour Cassel). Like Little Feet it’s shot in gorgeous black-and-white, and Rockwell takes full advantage of a cast which includes Jennifer Beals, Sam Rockwell, and cameos by Jim Jarmusch and Carol Kane as producers of a nude cable access show.

This screening is presented in association with Digbeth Diners Club. If you want to enjoy a meal with the film, just pop into the backyard and take your pick from one of their excellent street food stalls including Manila Munchies, The Meatshack and Habanero Cafe. In the Soup is free, not £5 as advertised in the brochure.

Dir. Alexandre Rockwell / USA 1992 / 96 min
