M. 1999. Big-screen version of the awardwinning TV series is great fun for fans, though less so if you’re not familiar with the themes and obsessions of the small-screen version. You’ll need to keep your wits about you to follow the plot. David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson. House of Branching Love 9.30pm, SBS TWO
M. 2009. Black comedy from Finnish director Mika Kaurismaki, with divorcing couple Elina Knihtila and Hannu-Pekka Bjorkman sharing the same house, though with strict house rules, such as no new lovers. When the rules are broken, the situation escalates out of control. Not all of it is funny, but enough is to have you giggling a lot of the time. Interview with The Vampire 9.40pm, Go!
AV. 1994. Slow, sombre film about Brad Pitt’s fateful meeting with vampire Tom Cruise 200 years ago. Given the bite of immortality, he and Cruise journey through the years, until Pitt gives an interview to a journalist, recounting his fate. Beautifully mounted, but irredeemably dull adaptation of Anne Rice’s popular novel.
