8/14-16: Tony Manero, His Girl Friday & More!

08/11/09  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Chilean drama TONY MANERO is one of the major discoveries of the year Acclaimed at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, selected for the 2008 New York Film Festival, and chosen May's "Film of the Month" by Britain's Sight & Sound magazine, TONY MANERO is one of the major discoveries of the year. Set in Pinochet's Chile during 1978, the movie focuses on a 52-year-old sociopath obsessed with "Saturday Night Fever." (Tony Manero is the name of John Travolta's disco dance-king character in that landmark movie.) Beyond the nominal story, the film is an allegory about life under dictatorship and about the insidious power of American pop culture. Read The New York Times' review here, then see the film on Friday or Saturday night. JERICHOW: acclaimed new German version of "The Postman Always Rings Twice" James M. Cain's classic tale of a love triangle that leads to murder, "The Postman Always Rings Twice," is transposed to northern Germany in the taut new thriller JERICHOW. A handsome ex-soldier goes to work for a successful Turkish businessman, and falls for his boss's beautiful alluring wife. Read the New York Times review here, then see the film for only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member) by printing this post and presenting it at the box office on Friday or Sunday. It's our Deal of the Week! Howard Hawks' HIS GIRL FRIDAY is one of the fastest, funniest comedies ever made An unscrupulous newspaper editor (Cary Grant) will do anything to keep his star reporter, and ex-wife (Rosalind Russell), from bolting the paper and marrying a boob in Howard Hawks' fast and furious comedy HIS GIRL FRIDAY, continuing our "Cinema with a Smile" series this weekend. If you've never seen this hilarious classic, and even if you have, you won't want to miss the gorgeous 35mm studio archive print we will show this Saturday and Sunday. Outdoor screening COMEDY STARS UNDER THE STARS: smiles of the summer night Bring a chair to the Cleveland Institute of Art courtyard (right off the student lounge) on Saturday night and, weather permitting, catch a program of five silent two-reelers starring five of the silent screen's greatest comedians. (In case of rain, program will show in Aitken Auditorium and we will provide the chairs.) The program, entitled COMEDY STARS UNDER THE STARS, will consist of "One A.M." starring Charlie Chaplin, "The Goat" starring Buster Keaton, "Number, Please!" starring Harold Lloyd, "All Night Long" starring Harry Langdon, and "Movie Night" starring Charley Chase (pictured above). These men provide five good reasons why comedy was king during the American silent era. Estonian film SUGISBALL added to Cinematheque August schedule SÜGISBALL (AUTUMN BALL), a 2007 Estonian film directed by Veiko Õunpuu, has been added to the Cinematheque's August schedule. The film will show at 1:30 pm on Sunday, August 30, and at 7:00 pm on Monday, August 31. Regular admission prices apply. Evoking Antonioni, Cassavetes, Kaurismäki, and Ulrich Seidl, "Sugisball" is a melancholy, miserablist black comedy set in a drab, Soviet-era Estonian high-rise, where four apartment dwellers-a tormented writer who spies on his estranged wife, a promiscuous nightclub worker, an architect, and a single mother-grope for love and happiness beyond the concrete walls that entomb their lonely lives. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. 35mm. 123 min.
