9/3-6: Bardot, Anvil, O'horten & More!

09/01/09  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Student film festival EMIT 2009 spotlights freshly-picked, homegrown short movies .E.M.I.T 2009 is an all-new festival of short films produced by Cleveland Institute of Art students. Usually shown in April, the seventh edition of this popular showcase has been moved to September, and will play Thursday night at 8 pm, in conjunction with the public opening of the annual Faculty Exhibition in the CIA's Reinberger Gallery. Another change is that this year's festival is free to all! What hasn't changed is the diversity of the work to be displayed -- ranging from 3-D animation to experimental video -- and the talent of the makers, which continues to astound. (Above photo courtesy of garudaphoto.com) Teen tries to repair car -- and heal personal wound -- in funny, beguiling LAKE TAHOE One of the best films at this year's Cleveland Int'l Film Festival, LAKE TAHOE follows a Mexican teen as he tries to get strangers in a strange small town to help him repair his wrecked car. This deadpan delight boasts the lackadaisical rhythms and laconic dialogue of Jim Jarmusch or Aki Kaurismaki. But its lightweight, laid-back feel masks some heartfelt emotions. Don't miss this wonderfully cinematic comedy (shot in 35mm color and scope) when we show it this Friday and Sunday. Print this entry and present it at the box office and see "Lake Tahoe" for only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit of two paid admissions per print-out.) Longtime train engineer discovers the chaotic, unregulated real world in deadpan Norwegian comedy O'HORTEN In the droll, poetic Norwegian comedy O'HORTEN (showing Friday and Saturday), a longtime train engineer forced into retirement discovers the sometimes baffling, always irregular real world. (There's a reason why O'Horten's first name is "Odd.") The Keatonesque new film from the director of "Kitchen Stories" and "Factotum" has gotten some of the best reviews of the year, as you can see here. See Bardot in ...AND GOD CREATED WOMAN and say to the Maker, "Well done!" Roger Vadim's 1956 pre-New Wave classic ...AND GOD CREATED WOMAN is among the most famous French films of the past 53 years. It introduced Brigitte Bardot as one of the screen's supreme sex symbols and put St. Tropez on the map (well, you know what we mean). But try to catch this color and scope film in a U.S. theatre and you'll mostly come a cropper; it's no longer distributed on film in America. That's why our screening of an English-subtitled print from France this Saturday and Sunday is so special. And why we're charging a little more for it ($10, Cinematheque members $7). But take a look at this dubbed trailer and if you like what you see -- and want to see more of it, bigger, wider, and in the original language -- then show up this weekend. Anvil achieves heaviosity in heartfelt ANVIL Do you hate heavy metal, rock 'n' roll movies, and movies about heavy metal rock 'n' rollers? Then you'll love ANVIL: THE STORY OF ANVIL, the tale of an influential and groundbreaking (and still-active) Canadian heavy metal band, Anvil, that never quite found superstardom. Often described as a real-life "Spinal Tap" because it contains a lot of humor and humiliation, this widely-acclaimed documentary captures, in a sweet and moving way, not only the perennial dream of becoming a rock star but the grace and grounding bestowed by lifelong friendships (the band's two founders, now in their 50s, were boyhood bff's). Highly recommended. And those who like heavy metal and rock 'n" roll movies will also enjoy it. Films This Week Read e-blast Sign-up e-blast
