Apr 19-22: Jiro Dreams Of Sushi, Godard's Weekend, Three By Bresson & More!

04/17/12  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

In new doc, JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI while the rest of us can almost taste it! David Gelb's new documentary JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI profiles Japan's 85-year-old Jiro Ono, perhaps the world's best sushi chef. Jiro is captured at Sukiyabashi Jiro, his ten-seat sushi-only restaurant located in a Tokyo subway station. There he continuously strives for perfection in taste and presentation, while training his eldest son Yoshikazu to carry the torch after he is gone. Anthony Bourdain calls this movie "a breathtaking portrait of a great artist, a chef unique in the world." Variety finds the movie "mouthwatering." Sample it during its exclusive Cleveland premiere engagement on Saturday or Sunday. WEEKEND: thank God it's not Friday! Here's a new 35mm color print of one of the seminal works of modern cinema! Godard's 1967 French movie WEEKEND is a savage, scabrously funny attack on bourgeois values. In it, a couple's weekend excursion to the country becomes a descent into horror and barbarism. An epic traffic jam-with irate drivers, accidents, fires, casualties, and a cacophony of car horns-serves as a chilling metaphor for dysfunctional Western society. Adults can see it on Friday or Sunday. Pick of the week: Bresson's PICKPOCKET Robert Bresson's 1959 French classic PICKPOCKET was voted the best postwar French film by Cahiers du cinema magazine. A sensual, cerebral, spiritual masterpiece directed with peerless economy, the movie tells of an unemployed young man who finds himself inexorably drawn to the forbidden exhilaration of picking pockets. It was inspired by Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. Don't miss it (in a 35mm print) on Thursday or Friday. Here's the original trailer. Couple adopts a child made of wood in bizarre Svankmajer fable LITTLE OTIK The fears and failures of first-time parents are captured perfectly in LITTLE OTIK, a 2000 feature by Czech animator and surrealist Jan ?vankmajer. This typically surreal and subversive blend of live action and stop motion, based on a Czech folk tale, tells of a barren young couple so desperate for a child that they adopt a "baby" carved from a tree trunk. But when their little bundle of joy proves to have a voracious appetite, swallowing pets and people as it grows, they realize with horror that they have created a monster. See it on Thursday or Saturday. Watch the trailer. Bresson's LANCELOT OF THE LAKE is a King Arthur film like no other! Robert Bresson's 1974 French film LANCELOT OF THE LAKE is a King Arthur film like no other! The Knights of the Round Table, their ranks depleted by death after a fruitless search for the Holy Grail, return disillusioned to Camelot, where a spiritual pall has settled. There the knights further debase themselves with rivalries, jealousies, and squabbles. Bresson's period piece is a paean to the end of chivalry and the death of a dream. With minimal pageantry, he strips the Arthurian legend to its bare essentials-cumbersome, clanking armor, loneliness, human weakness, and an impossible quest The Time Out Film Guide calls it "stunningly beautiful, mesmerizing, exhausting, uplifting, amazing?all the things you could possible expect from a masterpiece." Don't miss it Saturday when we screen a rare, imported 35mm color print! Special admission is $10; members & CIA I.D. holders $8; ages 25 & under $6; no passes, twofers, or radio winners. Bresson's LES DAMES DU BOIS DE BOULOGNE has script by Cocteau Jean Cocteau adapted a Diderot story for Bresson's second film LES DAMES DU BOIS DU BOULOGNE (1945), in which a spurned woman (Maria Casarès) takes revenge on her ex-lover by hooking him up with a woman of "easy virtue" whom he believes to be devout and chaste. Though this was the last Bresson film to be shot in a studio with professional actors, it nevertheless boasts an austerity, an interiority, and an intensity that are unmistakably his. Film scholar P. Adams Sitney calls it "the greatest achievement of its decade in France." See it in a 35mm print on Sunday only. Cinematheque announces late addition and two special events The Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque announces its "TBA" film on Friday, April 27, as well as two special events on April 28 and May 3. The "To Be Announced" movie on Friday, April 27 at 9:20 pm will be Markus Schleinzer's 2011 Austrian film MICHAEL, recently shown at the Cleveland International Film Festival.
