2/27-3/2: Beethoven's Ninth, Noam Chomsky/Michel Gondry, Stromboli & more!

02/26/14  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Noam Chomsky stars in Michel Gondry's unique, whimsical new "doctoon" IS THE MAN WHO IS TALL HAPPY? Michel Gondry's IS THE MAN WHO IS TALL HAPPY? is a new “doctoon" in the tradition of Waking Life. The movie animates a conversation between filmmaker Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) and philosopher/linguist/activist Noam Chomsky. As the two men talk—about their pasts, the origins of language, and other heady topics—Gondry amplifies Chomsky's ideas with free-flowing doodles, sketches, and other visual flights of fancy that illustrate, embroider, and comment on what he is hearing. Variety calls the film "an inspired meeting of idiosyncratic minds...Simultaneously light-hearted and thought-provoking." The Village Voice hails it as "a dazzler...a film to see and then to see again." Catch its exclusive Cleveland premiere on Saturday or Sunday. Here's the trailer.

STROMBOLI (1949) is first part of Ingrid Bergman / Roberto Rossellini "trinity"
The 1949 Italian film STROMBOLI was the first collaboration between Ingrid Bergman and the man who would become her lover and husband, director Roberto Rossellini. She plays a Lithuanian refugee in a post-WWII internment camp who escapes the compound by marrying a simple Italian fisherman and moving with him to Stromboli, a barren volcanic island that is his home. But she can’t adapt to the harsh, primitive living conditions there so suffers an existential crisis. Martin Scorsese calls Stromboli "genuinely great.” See it in a new digital restoration on Saturday or Sunday! Note that we will show the 106-min. English-language version on Saturday, and the 100-min. Italian version (with subtitles) on Sunday.

Quentin Tarantino calls Israeli thriller BIG BAD WOLVES the best film of 2013
Hailed by Quentin Tarantino as "the best film of the year," BIG BAD WOLVES is a darkly funny and gruesome Israeli thriller that follows two men -- a rogue cop and a vengeful father -- who relentlessly pursue a presumed pedophile and child murderer. The Hollywood Reporter calls it "grippingly suspenseful...fiendishly clever...mesmerizing from start to finish." Adults can see it Thursday or Friday. Watch the trailer here.

FOLLOWING THE NINTH shows how Beethoven's final symphony has helped inspire world-shaking events Recently heralded by both Bill Moyers and NPR, FOLLOWING THE NINTH: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BEETHOVEN'S FINAL SYMPHONY examines the life-changing legacy of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The work, a celebration of peace and harmony and brotherhood, had historic resonance for activists in Pinochet’s Chile, in Cold War East Berlin, and in China’s Tiananmen Square. And it continues to console and inspire hundreds of tsunami-shaken Japanese choristers who gather to sing the “Ode to Joy” every December. The Village Voice calls Following the Ninth "[a] majestic sonic travelogue charting the inextricable relationship between music and the human experience…a documentary as ineffable and transformative in its reach as it sets out to be.” See it Saturday or Sunday. Here's a lengthy trailer.

Chinese drama A TOUCH OF SIN, one of 2013's best, returns for two more shows Here’s another chance to see one of the most acclaimed films of 2013! Jia Zhangke’s new work A TOUCH OF SIN marks a radical change of pace for the acclaimed Chinese director of Still Life and The World. The movie is an angry contemporary drama that re-creates four under-reported but actual incidents from recent Chinese history—two killing sprees, one murder, and a suicide—all involving dissatisfied or exploited workers. Film Comment calls it "an explosive indictment of the Chinese economic miracle and its brutalizing effect on ordinary Chinese life.” See this 2013 New York Film Festival selection on Thursday or Friday. Print this email and present it at the box office and pay only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Watch the trailer here.
