5/1-4: Godfrey Reggio's Visitors, Jared Leto in Mr. Nobody, Stranger by the Lake & more!

04/29/14  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Hypnotic VISITORS is Godfrey Reggio and Philip Glass's latest collaboration VISITORS, Godfrey (the Qatsi trilogy) Reggio’s latest collaboration with composer Philip Glass, is another wordless film consisting of visually stunning images and hypnotic music. This time the images, including many faces, are in b&w and scope. The intent is to ponder man’s relationship with technology. The Austin Chronicle calls it "a wondrous work.” Catch Visitors' exclusive Cleveland premiere on Friday or Saturday. A guy from Detroit is driving down to see it, since the movie isn't coming there. Since you live much closer, the least you can do is also come to see it. Watch the trailer here.

Sex and death commingle in steamy, sensuous STRANGER BY THE LAKE One of the most talked about and debated films from this year's Cleveland Int'l Film Festival, STRANGER BY THE LAKE is also one of the most acclaimed movies of the past year, with a 95% "fresh" rating on RottenTomatoes. Alain Guiraudie's breakthrough work is a lean thriller set at an isolated lake in rural France, where gay men sunbathe in the buff and cruise for love and companionship. One young man finds himself inexorably drawn to a mysterious, gorgeous hunk who looks a bit like Mark Spitz—and may be a killer. No one under 18 will be admitted to this movie that shows on Thursday and Sunday. Here's the trailer. Guiraudie’s 2009 film The King of Escape, made right before this one, plays 5/11.

Oscar-nominated bluegrass movie & audience fave THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN returns Our audience loved the Belgian bluegrass movie THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN when we showed it last winter. One of the five nominees for this year’s Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, it was also nominated for five 2013 European Film Awards—the most nominations for any movie—including Best Film, Director, Actress (Veerle Baetens, who won), Actor, and Screenplay. This Once-like movie chronicles the love affair between a female tattoo artist and a Belgian banjo player, and the child who changes and challenges their relationship. The film includes superb English-language performances of American bluegrass classics. Don't miss its return engagement on Sunday afternoon at 4:00. Watch the trailer here.

Masterful 1968 time travel fantasy JE T'AIME, JE T'AIME shown as tribute to its late, great maker Alain Resnais JE T'AIME, JE T'AIME is a little-known major work from Alain Resnais, the director of Hiroshima, Mon Amour and Last Year at Marienbad who died in March at age 91. This 1968 sci-fi fantasy deals with Resnais’ usual themes of time and memory. In it, a man who attempted suicide finds himself a guinea pig in a time-travel experiment gone awry; he can’t escape his life’s unhappy moments. When Je t'aime, Je t'aime was recently revived in New York, Time Out New York awarded the movie "five stars (highest rating), calling it "a masterpiece" and commenting that "you can see why Michel Gondry cited this as a major influence on his sci-fi romance, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Don't miss it in a new 35mm color print on Saturday or Sunday.

Jared Leto, Sarah Polley star in lavish alternative reality fantasy MR. NOBODY Oscar winner Jared Leto co-stars with Sarah Polley in MR. NOBODY, an ambitious, expansive sci-fi film (set in 2092) that the audience loved when we showed it in January. Leto plays 118-year-old Nemo Nobody, the last mortal man in a world that has achieved immortality, who reflects on the key moments in his life and on the alternate paths he could have taken (and maybe did). This fluid, nonlinear mindbender, a cult classic in the making, won Magritte Awards (Belgian Oscars) for Best Film and Best Director and the Audience Award for Best Film at the 2010 European Film Awards. See this epic English-language fantasy 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) Here's the trailer.

COUSIN JULES rules in throwback like no other! Hailed as a masterpiece when first released in France in 1972, then forgotten for 40 years, Dominique Benicheti's COUSIN JULES has been newly restored after the filmmaker’s recent death. (It wowed our own audience in February.) Painstakingly shot in color, scope, and stereo over a five-year period, this serene ode to rural living and life’s simple pleasures chronicles the daily existence of an 80-ish French blacksmith (the filmmaker's cousin) who lives on a farm with his elderly wife of many years. The 50th New York Film Festival described the movie as "a ravishing, totally immersive work in which we not only enter into the subjects’ world but also into the very rhythms of their lives." They're spot-on. Don't miss this classic at 5:15 pm on Saturday. Really! Here's the trailer.
