Andrei Rublev

USSR | 1966 | Andrei Tarkovsky

Tarkovsky’s long banned and bowdlerized masterpiece was inspired by the life of a great 15th-century Russian icon painter. This sweeping biography finds the artist and monk losing his will to speak and create after witnessing the barbaric horrors that infect his war-torn, feudal country. Can he regain his voice? 35mm scope print of the original, uncut version.

The Master

United States | 2012 | Paul Thomas Anderson

Voted best film of 2012 in the Sight & Sound and Village Voice film critics’ polls (it finished #2 in the Film Comment and Indiewire surveys), the new movie by son of Ghoulardi Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood, Boogie Nights) charts the postwar relationship between an alcoholic WWII vet (Joaquin Phoenix) and a charismatic cult leader (Philip Seymour Hoffman) whose religious/philosophical movement resembles L. Ron Hubbard’s Church of Scientology. Phoenix, Hoffman, and Amy...

Wrong

United States | 2012 | Quentin Dupieux

The wild new film from the director of Rubber (about a killer tire!) is another absurdist comedy. A man awakens one day to discover that his beloved dog is missing. His search to find him leads from one surreal non-sequitur situation to another. Pretty soon he’s lost not only his dog, but also his mind! “A singularly amusing head trip…Suggests Groundhog Day remade by Luis Buñuel.” –Indiewire. “Just as weird and awesome as you expect.”...

Four Films by Donald Richie

Japan | 1962-67 | Donald Richie

Donald Richie, who was born in Lima, Ohio in 1924 and died in Tokyo in February, did more than anybody to introduce Japanese cinema to the West. A revered film scholar who penned such groundbreaking works as The Japanese Film (1959), The Films of Akira Kurosawa (1965), and Ozu: His Life and Films (1974), Richie was also an occasional maker of his own experimental short films. Though they are little known and rarely shown, tonight,...

Diana Vreeland: The Eye has to Travel

United States | 2011 | Lisa Immordino Vreeland, Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt, Frédéric Tcheng

For over 50 years Diana Vreeland (1903-1989) was one of the fashion world’s foremost figures. She was fashion editor at Harper’s Bazaar, editor-in-chief of Vogue, advisor to Jackie Kennedy, and discoverer of Twiggy and Edie Sedgwick. This recent film, a hit in January and brought back as part of Fashion Week Cleveland, recounts her stylish and colorful life with pizzazz. “Scrumptious.” –The L.A. Times.

Moonrise Kingdom

United States | 2012 | Wes Anderson

One of the most delightful and touching films of 2012, the latest movie by Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Royal Tennenbaums) is a funny, whimsical, beautifully designed paean to adolescence and young love, underscored by the lyrical music of Benjamin Britten (1913-1976). Set on a fictional New England island during the summer of 1965, the film tells of two tweener pen pals—camp cadet Sam and arts-loving Suzy—who make a secret pact to run away together. Their...

The Seventh Continent

Austria | 1989 | Michael Haneke

Michael Haneke’s universally acclaimed new film Amour (see 5/11 & 12) probably has more in common with his haunting first feature than with any of his others. (Both take place within the confines of one domicile, for starters.) An upper middle class Austrian family with all the modern conveniences finds itself pathologically bored with life, so takes drastic measures. This icy, elegant critique of sterile consumer culture is an unshakeable work of pure cinema. Adults...

The Kid with a Bike

Belgium, France, Italy | 2011 | Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne

With an overall metacritic.com score of 87 out of 100 and a 96% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the latest film by the Dardenne brothers is one of the most acclaimed movies of the past year. It’s a deeply moving story of an impoverished, heartbroken 11-year-old boy who is abandoned by his father but taken in by a kind hairdresser (the luminous Cécile de France) who tries to tame his tempestuous behavior.

Leviathan

France, United Kingdom, United States | 2012 | Lucien Castaing-Taylor, Véréna Paravel

Life aboard a New England commercial fishing vessel on the roiling sea is vividly, indelibly captured in this engulfing new film from the makers of Sweetgrass. One of the most acclaimed and visceral films of the year, Leviathan deserves to be seen and experienced on the big screen, as it will be tonight at the Capitol Theatre. “Plunging viewers into the thick of chaos, Leviathan explodes the antiquated paradigm of the documentary or ethnographic film.”...

Mexico, United States | 2012 | David Riker

It tells of a mentally disturbed child murderer (Peter Lorre) who is hunted by both the Berlin police and by the city’s underworld, whose illicit activities are being disrupted by the cops’ extensive, intrusive manhunt. Lang’s first sound film was his favorite of all his movies. “Five stars (highest rating)…Intense, ominous and controversially humane, Fritz Lang’s 1931 masterpiece is not only the...

In this whimsical, delightful 1960s French comedy that wasn’t released in the U.S. until last year, rediscovered comedian Pierre Étaix plays a married, middle-aged businessman who falls for his barely legal new secretary and starts fantasizing endlessly about her. Full of sight gags, this is “Étaix’s last, most cohesive, and greatest feature” (Film Forum, NYC). Étaix’s wife in the film is played by Annie Fratellini, France’s first female circus clown and Mrs. Étaix in real...
