10/1-4: Revanche, $9.99, Volga-volga & More!

Foreign film Oscar nominee REVANCHE makes Cleveland debut REVANCHE ("Revenge"), one of the five features nominated for this year's Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, is a taut, sexy Austrian thriller in which an ex-con working as a bouncer at a Vienna brothel plans to run away with a Ukrainian prostitute. But when he botches the robbery that would finance his "new beginning," he hides out at his grandfather's farm -- only to realize that the cop investigating his case lives next door (and has an alluring wife). As you can see here, Gotz Spielmann's movie is one of the best-reviewed films of the year. (It's also the first new movie in many years released by longtime art house distributor Janus Films, which specializes in classics.) Don't miss it Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. 1980s Woody Allen films start next weekend! Four rarely-revived films by Woody Allen -- all released in a row between 1983 and 1986 -- will show between October 9 and November 1 in the Cinematheque series "'Hannah' and Her Predecessors." The movies -- "Zelig," "Broadway Danny Rose," "The Purple Rose of Cairo," and "Hannah and Her Sisters" (listed in the order in which they were released) -- are, according to Cinematheque director John Ewing, " four of Allen's greatest and most original works, representing a second golden age for the writer-director after his popular 1970s hits." All star Mia Farrow; Allen himself appears in three of them. The series starts next weekend with "Hannah and Her Sisters." Animated apartment dwellers seek meaning of life for ridiculously low price of $9.99 "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2" aren't the only animated features opening in Cleveland this weekend. There's also the stop-motion movie for grown-ups, $9.99, showing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Cinematheque. Based on stories by Israeli writer Etgar Keret (he also wrote and co-directed the 2007 Cannes prize winner "Jellyfish," and one of his novels was the basis for the 2006 film "Wristcutters: A Love Story"), Tatia Rosenthal's acclaimed film follows an aimless young man, living in a ramshackle apartment building, who buys a self-help manual that promises to reveal the meaning of life for only $9.99. Aussie stars Geoffrey Rush and Anthony LaPaglia supply some of the English-language voices. Watch this trailer, and we think you'll be intrigued. Josef Stalin gives "two thumbs up" to 1938 Soviet musical comedy VOLGA-VOLGA; members can see it for free on Thu night! Soviet singing star Lyubov Orlova is at her populist best in the beloved and very funny 1938 Russian musical comedy VOLGA-VOLGA, a tale of two rival performing ensembles traveling by boat to compete in the Moscow Musical Olympiad. Stalin loved this film so much (it was reputedly his favorite film) that he gave a print to Franklin D. Roosevelt! It shows in a gorgeous new 35mm print this Thursday and Sunday, and card-carrying Cinematheque members and those with Cleveland Institute of Art I.D.'s will be admitted free on Thursday night at 8:25. Student completes his late professor's unfinished autobiographical opus in poignant THE WINDMILL MOVIE When filmmaker and Harvard film professor Richard P. Rogers died in 2001 at the age of 57, he left behind boxes of film that documented his privileged, upper-class WASP life. Rogers had always intended to cut and shape these 200 hours of footage into an autobiography, but he never did so. So the task fell to his wife, photographer Susan Meiselas, and one of his students, Alexander Olch, who completed Rogers' epic home movie. The result, THE WINDMILL MOVIE, shows this Thursday and Saturday -- one year after it played in the ultra-exclusive New York Film Festival. After you watch the trailer. It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two admissions per print-out.) Rogers' first movie, the short 1970 film poem "Quarry," will also show. 1980s Woody Allen films start next weekend! Four rarely-revived films by Woody Allen -- all released in a row between 1983 and 1986 -- will show between October 9 and November 1 in the Cinematheque series "'Hannah' and Her Predecessors." The movies -- "Zelig," "Broadway Danny Rose," "The Purple Rose of Cairo," and "Hannah and Her Sisters" (listed in the order in which they were released) -- are, according to Cinematheque director John Ewing, " four of Allen's greatest and most original works, representing a second golden age for the writer-director after his popular 1970s hits." All star Mia Farrow; Allen himself appears in three of them. The series starts next weekend with "Hannah and Her Sisters."
