3/17-20: Paul Schrader In Person, The Gold Rush, Poison & More!

03/15/11  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Writer-director Paul Schrader comes to town with shot-in-Cleveland LIGHT OF DAY (1987) On Friday night acclaimed writer-director Paul Schrader comes to the Cinematheque. In his illustrious 35+ year career, Schrader has written such films as TAXI DRIVER, THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST, and RAGING BULL (coming to the Cinematheque on April 1 & 2), and directed movies ranging from AMERICAN GIGOLO and MISHIMA to PATTY HEARST and AUTO FOCUS. But on Friday Schrader will appear in person with LIGHT OF DAY, a rock 'n' roll movie that Schrader shot 25 years ago at the Euclid Tavern and other Cleveland locations. LIGHT OF DAY (the title is also the name of a Bruce Springsteen song written for the film; hear it in the trailer) stars Michael J. Fox and Joan Jett as a brother and sister who play in a working-class rock band. He is a factory worker; she is an impoverished unwed mother whose reckless lifestyle has alienated her from her deeply-religious mother (Gena Rowlands). Never released on DVD, LIGHT OF DAY features a cameo by young Trent Reznor, who can be seen playing with other members of Exotic Birds, his pre-Nine Inch Nails band (here called the Problems). Schrader will answer audience questions after the screening. Admission to this special event is $15; members and CIA students & staff $10. Advance tickets can be purchased at . Nolte, Coburn, and all-star cast ignite Paul Schrader's potent 1997 drama AFFLICTION AFFLICTION (1997), one of Paul Schrader's most acclaimed and honored films, won an Academy Award for James Coburn and an Oscar nomination for Nick Nolte. Based on a Russell Banks novel, it tells of a troubled small-town New Hampshire policeman (Nolte) who has volatile relationships with his abusive father (Coburn) and his ex-wife and daughter. Sissy Spacek, William Dafoe, and Mary Beth Hurt co-star. See Schrader's personal 35mm print of this movie on Thursday night only. Print this post and present it at the box office and pay only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Churchill expert to lead discussion after new documentary WINSTON CHURCHILL: WALKING WITH DESTINY Richard Trank's 2010 documentary WINSTON CHURCHILL: WALKING WITH DESTINY is a glowing portrait of Britain's legendary, WWII-era prime minister. The movie touches upon Churchill's early warnings about Hitler, Nazism, and anti-Semitism; his inspirational wartime speeches; and his legacy for the 21st century. Ben Kingsley narrates the film, which shows Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Michael McMenamin, a member of the Editorial Board of The Finest Hour (the quarterly journal of The Churchill Centre and Museum) and co-author of the critically acclaimed biography Becoming Winston Churchill: The Untold Story of Young Winston and His American Mentor, will lead a discussion after both screenings. Todd Haynes' POISON returns in new 35mm print for its twentieth anniversary POISON, the groundbreaking first feature by Todd Haynes, director of SAFE, FAR FROM HEAVEN, and I'M NOT THERE, is a New Queer Cinema landmark. Inspired by the transgressive work of Jean Genet, the film tells three different stories in three different styles. "Hero" is a TV-style documentary about suburban patricide; "Horror" renders a sex experiment as a 1950s monster movie; "Homo" is a prison drama focused on the relationship between two inmates. No one under 17 will be admitted to this film that shows Saturday and Sunday. Here's the trailer. Chaplin mines comedy classic THE GOLD RUSH for a million laughs Chaplin's greatest silent feature THE GOLD RUSH (1925) finds the Little Tramp a prospector in the frozen Yukon. There he battles the elements, bears, hunger, and loneliness. This is flat out one of the funniest comedies ever made, and will be shown on Saturday and Sunday in a 1942 version that has narration and music by Chaplin. It will be preceded by the Chaplin comedy short "A Day's Pleasure" (1919), about an ill-fated family outing. Kids 12 & under pay only $6.
