3/19-22: Bronson, Boy And His Dog, Lourdes & More!

03/16/10  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

BRONSON's back -- with a vengeance! Hailed by some critics as "'A Clockwork Orange' for the 21st century," Nicolas Winding Refn's BRONSON is one of the most thrilling and stylish movies of the past year. When we premiered it last December, it was clear that a new cult movie had been born. The film recounts the criminal career of one of Britain's most notorious convicts, Michael Peterson, who has spent 30 years of his 34-year prison sentence in solitary confinement and loves to fight so much that he has adopted the moniker "Charles Bronson" (after the two-fisted actor). As the cocky and cruelly charismatic Peterson/Bronson, Tom Hardy is sensational -- and the Oscars snubbed him. Don't you do likewise. In fact, print this email and present it at the box office Friday or Saturday and see "Bronson" for only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member. It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) This movie is for adults only! Harlan Ellison story comes to the screen in 1975 sci-fi classic A BOY AND HIS DOG L. Q. Jones' A BOY AND HIS DOG is a darkly funny 1975 sci-fi film set in 2024 and based on a Harlan Ellison story. It tells of a man (Don Johnson) who communicates telepathically with his dog. While searching for food, shelter, and sex in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the two of them stumble upon a strange subterranean civilization that resembles 20th-century American suburbia. Jason Robards co-stars in this cult favorite, which will be shown on Friday and Saturday in a new, digitally remastered 35mm scope print! This film is also for adults only. WILD WOMEN OF WONGO: with a title like that, you know it's good! Michael Weldon's book The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film calls the 1958 color campfest WILD WOMEN OF WONGO "the most obscure (and the funniest) entry in the wonderful subgenre of scantily-clad-prehistoric-women movies." That's good enough for us. But if you demand a story, then here it is: a bevy of beautiful cavewomen who share the island of Wongo with hairy, ugly Neanderthal men try to hook up with the tribe of handsome, muscular, clean-shaven men who reside on the nearby island of Goona. (You'll observe the same behavior at Cleveland bars every Saturday night.) But do they get together? You'll find out when you see our new 35mm color print of this so-bad-it's-well-not-so-bad movie Friday or Saturday night. LOURDES is Cinematheque "Partnership Presentation" at Cleveland Int'l Film Fest In the acclaimed new movie LOURDES , showing Sunday and Monday at Tower City Cinemas in downtown Cleveland as part of the 34th Cleveland Int'l Film Festival, the extraordinary French actress Sylvie Testud (unforgettable in such Cinematheque films as "Murderous Maids" and "La France") plays a paraplegic woman with MS who makes a pilgrimage to the titular French Catholic shrine. She's not exactly looking for a miracle; she's just taking advantage of one of the few excursions available to people in wheelchairs. Director Jessica Hausner channels masters from Bresson and Bruno Dumont to Jacques Tati and Aki Kaurismäki to tell her wry, deadpan, surprising story. Special admission to this movie is $12, CIFF members $10, seniors & students $10 (day of show only). But even if you're not eligible for a discount, mention the code "CINE" and see "Lourdes"-or any other regular film-festival movie between March 19 and 28-for only $10. Tickets available online at www.clevelandfilm.org, by phone at 877-304-FILM (3456), or in person at Tower City Cinemas. See/hear John Ewing on "Applause" Cinematheque Director John Ewing will discuss the First Cleveland Cult Film Festival (taking place March 19, 20, 26 & 27 at the Cinematheque) and cult films in general this week on WVIZ-TV's arts show "Applause." The program, which will also contain film clips, will air Thursday at 7:30 pm, Saturday at 6:30 pm, and Sunday at 12:30 pm on Cleveland's PBS affiliate WVIZ.
