Beyond the Black Rainbow

United States | 2010 | Panos Cosmatos

Cult and midnight movies from the 70s & 80s (Kubrick, Carpenter, Cronenberg, et al.) are saluted in this psychedelic sci-fi head trip from the son of director George P. Cosmatos (Rambo: First Blood Part II). Set in 1983 at a prison-like compound that is part utopian commune, part mental institution, the film focuses on a malevolent doctor’s attempts to break through to one of his patients, a mute girl with psychic powers, via a variety...

Psycho

United States | 1998 | Gus Van Sant

Vince Vaughn, Anne Heche, Julianne Moore, Viggo Mortensen, and William H. Macy star in Gus Van Sant’s color, shot-for-shot remake of Hitchcock’s classic slasher movie. Derided when first released, the film deserves a second chance—especially when you consider that Van Sant’s subsequent features include Elephant, Last Days, Paranoid Park, and Milk, some of the most acclaimed and daring American movies of the past 10 years. “Fascinating…Given the schizophrenia theme, you end up watching it in...

Boy

New Zealand | 2010 | Taika Waiti

Audiences loved this funny, whimsical New Zealand coming-of-age story when we premiered it in June, so we’re bringing it back. Set in a rural village in eastern New Zealand in 1984, the movie focuses on an 11-year-old, Michael Jackson-loving Maori boy who lives with relatives while his dad is in prison. The boy worships his absent father, and casts him in fantastic daydreams as a versatile and charismatic hero. But when Dad (played by writer-director...

An Evening With Larry Peerce

United States | N/A | Larry Peerce

Tonight the Cinematheque marks its 26th anniversary at the Cleveland Institute of Art with a special appearance by longtime Hollywood director Larry Peerce, who will present two of his best early films. Peerce, the son of Metropolitan Opera star Jan Peerce, directed over 50 movies and TV shows in a career that spanned five decades. Among his works are feature films Goodbye, Columbus, The Big T.N.T. Show, and The Other Side of the Mountain and...

One Potato, Two Potato

United States | 1964 | Larry Peerce

One of the most significant movies of the 1960s was shot in Painesville almost 50 years ago by first-time filmmaker Larry Peerce. The independently produced One Potato, Two Potato was the first American movie to deal with interracial marriage. Barbara Barrie plays a divorced woman who marries an African American man (Bernie Hamilton), then finds herself embroiled in a nasty child custody case with her racist ex-husband (Richard Mulligan). Barrie won the Best Actress prize...

The Incident

United States | 1967 | Larry Peerce

Larry Peerce’s other major film of the 1960s (see previous blurb) is also the movie he is proudest of. The Incident is a harrowing tale of two young punks who terrorize the passengers of a NYC subway car. The great cast features Tony Musante, Martin Sheen (making his screen debut), Beau Bridges, Brock Peters, Jack Gilford, Thelma Ritter, Ruby Dee, and Ed McMahon. Many of the scenes were shot secretly in the NYC subway system...

OC87: The Obsessive Compulsive, Major Depression Bipolar, Asperger's Movie

United States | 2010 | Bud Clayman, Glenn Holsten, Scott Johnston

The Cinematheque returns to the Capitol Theatre to present a unique film hailed as “a remarkable achievement” by The Huffington Post. Three decades after mental illness interrupted his dreams of a moviemaking career, college film major Bud Clayman finally made a movie. And it’s the movie of his life—literally—in which he recounts, with surprising intimacy, his decades-long battle to manage obsessive-compulsive disorder (specifically “Harm OCD” with its extreme anger and violent thoughts) and Asperger’s syndrome....

Sexual Chromicles of a French Family

France | 2012 | Pascal Arnold, Jean-Marc Barr

Our second film at the Capitol tonight (see previous blurb) is a comedy that could have been titled French Pie. When teenager Romain is caught masturbating in biology class, his distressed mother decides that their family needs to be more open about sex. Pretty soon everyone in Romain’s three-generation family—his sister, brother, mother, father, and grandfather—is not only talking about sex, but engaging in it (no incest, thankfully). Talk about TMI! No one under 18...

Destry Rides Again

United States | 1939 | George Marshall

James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich star in this stellar Western spoof, about a pacifist marshal who tangles with an ornery saloon singer and gun-toting villains, and tames a lawless frontier town with words and jokes rather than bullets. This richly entertaining classic has everything—humor, romance, suspense, and action. Dietrich sings “See What the Boys in the Back Room Will Have.”

7:15 pm

Whore's Glory

Austria, Germany | 2011 | Michael Glawogger

The myth of the happy hooker is dynamited in the impeccably shot new film by Austrian filmmaker Michael Glawogger (Workingman’s Death). It’s a frank, fearless a portrait of prostitution around the world that focuses on women of three different religions in three countries (Thailand, Bangladesh, Mexico). The film emphasizes not only the diverse cultures of exploitation but also the shared plight of those trapped in the profession. “Both a wrenching journalistic exploration of real life...

Elles

France, Germany, Poland | 2011 | Malgorzata Szumowska

Juliette Binoche plays a Paris journalist (and wife and mother) who uncovers—and writes about—a college-student prostitution ring for Elle magazine. Her investigation, which focuses on two very different undergraduates (one French, one Polish), causes her to re-examine her own domestic life and sexual satisfaction, both of which leave much to be desired. No one under 18 admitted!

Quill: The Life of a Guide Dog

2004 | Yôichi Sai

This touching fiction-documentary hybrid follows a yellow Labrador retriever named Quill as he grows from an adorable puppy into a highly trained seeing-eye dog. But he really has his work cut out for him when he is placed with a cranky Japanese man who doesn’t want to be led around by an animal. “The family film of the year.” –Salon.

Abendland

Austria | 2011 | Nikolaus Geyhalter

Europe’s obsession with technology and security is depicted in a series of visually stunning vignettes shot at night in 10 different countries. As he did in Our Daily Bread, his emotionally cool 2005 overview of industrial food production in Europe, director Nikolaus Geyrhalter shuns music, interviews, and narration in favor of chilly, dispassionate, gorgeously lensed long shots—here of border patrols, beer halls, sex clubs, nursing homes, raves, et al. The end result is a dyspeptic...

There's Always Tomorrow

United States | 1956 | Douglas Sirk

Douglas Sirk’s 1950s melodramas subverted that decade’s prevalent notion of the “happy American home.” This film, produced by Cleveland’s Ross Hunter, reunites Double Indemnity stars Barbara Stanwyck and Fred MacMurray in a tale of a toy manufacturer trapped in a dull marriage who is tempted to stray when an old flame, now a glamorous designer, re-enters his life. With Joan Bennett. “One of Sirk’s greatest, most fully-realized accomplishments…In the front rank of Sirk masterpieces.” –Cineaste.

Jean Gentil

Dominican Republic, Germany, Mexico | 2010 | Israel Cárdenas, Laura Amelia Guzmán

A devout, out-of-work Haitian professional living in the Dominican Republic questions his self worth when he can’t find a new job. He moves from the city to the jungle. This gorgeous, meditative work encapsulates the plight of immigrant workers everywhere, but the saintly character of Jean Gentil seems to suffer for all of them. ”Shares a certain searching quality that marked the best of Bresson's films...Genuinely transcendent. –Time Out New York.

The Color Wheel

United States | 2011 | Alex Ross Perry

Voted “Best Undistributed Film of 2011” in both the Village Voice and IndieWire Critics Poll, this quirky comedy can now be seen! An insufferable college dropout (Carlen Altman) who has broken up with her professor-lover takes a caustic road trip with her obnoxious younger brother (director Perry) to pick up her stuff. The two siblings (“the most loathsomely lovable brother-sister duo in the history of cinema,” according to the L.A. Weekly) verbally abuse each other...

Turn Me On, Dammit!

Norway | 2011 | Jannicke Systad Jacobsen

A teenage girl with raging hormones is at the center of this funny, endearing movie that the Toronto Globe and Mail calls “that rare thing: an honest coming-of-age story from the female perspective.” 15-year-old blonde Alma lives in a boring town in rural Norway that she hates. There she spends her time pleasuring herself, calling telephone sex lines, and lusting after the cute guitarist in the church choir. This acclaimed movie was banned for two...

David Drazin, silent film musician at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago, will provide live piano accompaniment to Universal Pictures’ first feature-length film—a scandalous (and hugely popular) tale of white slavery within New York’s immigrant community. The film follows a poor young Swedish woman who is asked out by a “nice” man who then spikes her drink and transports her to a brothel. Can her older sister locate the kidnaper and thwart the crime...

Payback

Canada | 2012 | Jennifer Baichwal

Margaret Atwood’s book Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth is the inspiration for this provocative new documentary from the maker of Manufactured Landscapes. The film uses case studies—a blood feud in Albania, the BP oil spill, et al.—to illustrate and investigate the various manifestations of debt in the world—not just economic but also societal, criminal, environmental, spiritual, and personal. With Atwood. “Brave…Give(s) concrete shape to an abstract discussion.” –Toronto Globe and Mail.

The Day He Arrives

2011 | Hong Sang-soo

“Hong Sang-soo does Groundhog Day” says Time Out New York about the new film by the contemporary Korean master. It’s another funny-sad compendium of pathetic behavior in which a former movie director turned provincial film professor spends a three-day weekend in Seoul. But each day’s activities—wandering around the city, drinking with bar-mates, reconnecting with an old girlfriend—are so similar that he seems caught up in an endless loop of disappointment and failure. “Among (Hong’s) very...

This angry film argues that the grassroots movement to cure breast cancer has been co-opted by large philanthropic organizations geared primarily toward marketing pink paraphernalia and promoting feel-good walks and races, as well as by corporations whose products may be contributing to the spread of the disease. Contending that pharmaceutical solutions have taken precedence over prevention, the filmmakers also question how much of the money raised actually goes to cancer research. “Deserves to be seen.”...
