"Never have I seen a production of the play that was so raw in its emotion… Gillian Anderson giving the performance of her career. An absolute knock-out." - Daily Telegraph
"Foster as Stanley matches Miss Anderson blow for blow in their big showdowns…Kirby is touchingly vulnerable as Stella. - Sunday Telegraph
"Anderson and Foster's clash really is something to behold in the crystal-clarity of Benedict Andrews' production. Foster is a truly fascinating Stanley." - Time Out

For two weeks enjoy the 2D version of this landmark event. 3D and 2D sessions alternate soon. Both versions capture the treasures of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel on Ultra HD video.
Thanks to a mix of native 3D and the most advanced dimensional techniques used in cinema by directors such as James Cameron and Tim Burton, audiences are immersed in the great masterpieces of art history: "enter" the paintings of Caravaggio and, with unprecedented realism, "touch" Laocoön and the Belvedere Torso. Feel swathed by figures in the Sistine Chapel that have never seemed so real.
Director of the Vatican Museums, Professor Antonio Paolucci, expertly leads us through the past, present and future of the Vatican Museums to experience masterpieces of classic statues; the cast of Michelangelo's Pietà; Fontana's modern sculptures; paintings by Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci and Caravaggio to those by Van Gogh, Chagall and Dalì. See Raphael's extraordinary frescos, such as The School of Athens and spectacular masterpieces by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel such as the Creation of Adam and the majestic Last Judgment.
Produced by SKY in collaboration with the Vatican Museums Directorate.
Based on Norman Mailer's 1983 novel Ancient Evenings, River of Fundament is structured as a three-act opera in seven parts, mirroring the seven soul states of death in ancient Egyptian mythology.
Thisepic cinematic artwork, combining narrative cinema with elements of sculpture, opera and live performance, is a collaboration of visual artist Matthew Barney, and composer Jonathan Bepler.
Set in pre-Christian Egypt, Mailer's story is told through the voice of one man, Menenhetet and traces his thrice-reincarnated soul through each transformative phase.
Barney's film reimagines Mailer's mythologies as a sprawling allegory of death and rebirth within the contemporary American landscape. In ceremonial acts and industrial processes the body of Menenhetet is replaced by the body of a car (in turn by a Chrysler Imperial, a Pontiac Trans American, and a Crown Victoria) of significance to the rise and fall of American industrial power.
The film's pivotal scene abstracts Norman Mailer's wake, set in a replica of the author's New York apartment and includes cameos by luminaries from Mailer's family, social and literary circles.
