7/24-26: The Lunchbox, Tweety & Sylvester, Richard Myers & more!

07/23/14  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL is sexy new French film from director of "Swimming Pool" YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL is the provocative new film from France's François Ozon, director of Swimming Pool and In the House. The movie tells of an enigmatic and affectless French teenager (Marine Vacth in a star-making turn) who loses her virginity during a summer beach vacation, then secretly becomes a part-time call-girl after returning to Paris. Charlotte Rampling co-stars. The New York Times says that "Young & Beautiful continues the winning streak of a director with an especially acute understanding of desire." Adults can see it Friday or Saturday.

Nepalese-set MANAKAMANA is a cinematic cable car to the stars Nepalese pilgrims (and a few animals) travel by cable car to a mountaintop Hindu temple in Stephanie Spray and Pacho Velez's MANAKAMANA, a mesmerizing new observational film from Harvard's Sensory Ethnography Lab (Sweetgrass, Leviathan). The movie is constructed from a series of static 10-minute takes (the duration of both the mile-and-a-half journey skyward and the roll of 16mm film used to record each trip) which capture an assortment of male and female passengers as they float past a changing landscape, ascend through the clouds, and arrive at their destination. Time Out New York awarded this unusual movie five stars (their highest rating), commenting that "Manakamana is often funny, but it also possesses a serious and sublime spirituality...You could hardly ask for a more beautiful vision of souls in transit." Seekers of sublime cinema should not miss it Thursday or Friday. Watch the trailer here.

Work by 2014 Cleveland Arts Prize winner is showcased in TWO BY RICHARD MYERS In June longtime local independent filmmaker Richard Myers received the Cleveland Arts Prize for Lifetime Achievement in the Visual Arts. On Thursday at 8:30 pm you can see TWO BY RICHARD MYERS, consisting of two of Myers’ earliest shot-in-NE-Ohio movies, each lasting a little over 20 minutes. First Time Here (1964) is a cautionary apocalyptic fantasy centered around an atomic bomb display at a carnival. When the film came out 50 years ago, legendary film critic Pauline Kael called it the “major discovery of the Ann Arbor Film Festival.” Coronation (1965) is an impressively elaborate low-budget surrealist spectacle in which the “crown” is passed from one generation to the next. George Manupelli of the Ann Arbor Film Festival called it “a film without a dull moment.” Both will be shown in their original 16mm format. Print this email and present it at the box office and see this program for only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week!b (Limit two discount admissions per print-out)

THE LUNCHBOX is a tasty Indian delight India's major international crowd pleaser THE LUNCHBOX delineates an epistolary relationship between a lonely and reserved Mumbai accountant (Irrfan Khan) and the unknown woman who makes the delicious hot lunches (intended for her inattentive husband) that are mistakenly delivered to him every day. Everyone loves this touching, sensuous, romantic movie, and you will, too! See it in 35mm on Saturday at 6:45 pm.

Tweety & Sylvester star in LOONEY TUNES, PROGRAM 4: TWEETY 12 classic Warner Bros cartoons, most with Tweety Bird, comprise our LOONEY TUNES, PROGRAM 4: TWEETY, showing Friday and Saturday. Program includes Friz Freleng’s Bugs Bunny Rides Again (1948), Kit for Cat (1948), Knights Must Fall (1949), Home, Tweet Home (1950), Tweety’s S.O.S. (1951), A Street Cat Named Sylvester (1953), Dog Pounded (1954), Dr. Jerkyl’s Hide (1954), Tugboat Granny (1956), and Tweety and the Beanstalk (1957); and Chuck Jones’ Beanstalk Bunny (1955) and The Bee-Deviled Bruin (1949).
