8/21-24: Harold Lloyd in The Freshman, Filth, Dormant Beauty & more!

08/19/14  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Isabelle Huppert, Tony Servillo star in Italian euthanasia drama DORMANT BEAUTY Toni Servillo (The Great Beauty, Il Divo) and Isabelle Huppert star in DORMANT BEAUTY, the new film by master Italian filmmaker Marco Bellocchio (Good Morning, Night; My Mother's Smile). Inspired by the controversial Englaro case that polarized Italy in 2009 (the father of a young woman who had been in a coma for 17 years tried to get her legally taken off life support), the movie tells four separate stories that revolve around euthanasia or reflect the Englaro affair: two young lovers take opposite sides on the issue; a famous actress attends to her coma-stricken daughter; a doctor falls in love with a sedated, suicidal drug addict; a legislator in Berlusconi's party anguishes over a vote outlawing mercy killing. Catch its exclusive Cleveland premiere on Friday or Saturday. Note that this film will show in the Mandel Screening Room on the third floor of the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Joseph McCullough Center, 11610 Euclid Ave. Park free in the CIA lot on the east side of the building (southwest corner of E. 117th & Euclid), and enter the building through the east door. Security will direct you from there. No passes, twofers, or radio winners will be accepted. Here's the movie's trailer.

Strange, surreal GO DOWN DEATH is worthy of David Lynch or Guy Maddin Step aside, David Lynch and Guy Maddin. Make room for Aaron Schimberg and his mysterious, malignant new movie GO DOWN DEATH, an amalgam of American Gothic, surrealism, frontier tall tale, and outsider art. Shot on black-and-white 16mm film, Go Down Death (which is based on folk tales by the fictional Jonathan Mallory Sinus) is an apocalyptic fable set in a crumbling village haunted by disease, superstition, and the supernatural, where prostitutes and johns inhabit a dingy brothel and soldiers and shape-shifting doctors wander about. Filmmaker Magazine calls it "an astonishing, out-of-nowhere film…Amidst all the cookie-cutter indies, Aaron Schimberg’s Go Down Death casts a mysterious spell…Highly recommended." It premieres locally on Thursday and Sunday. Print this email and present it at the box office and see Go Down Death for only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out.) Watch the trailer here.

James McAvoy turns dirty in over-the-top Scottish cop drama FILTH James McAvoy, playing against type, is unforgettable as an amoral, sociopathic Scottish cop who will do anything (sex, drugs, back-stabbing, etc.) to win a departmental promotion in FILTH. This lurid new adaptation of a novel by Irvine West (Trainspotting) co-stars Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, Imogen Poots, and Jim Broadbent. Time Out London says "there’s in-yer-face cinema, and then there’s in-yer-face, down-yer-throat and throw-it-back-up-all-over-the-pavement cinema...You’ll be scraping this film out from under your fingernails for weeks." The Hollywood Reporter calls Filth "a hugely entertaining breath of foul air fueled by McAvoy's impressively ugly star performance." No one under 18 will be admitted when we show this on Friday and Saturday. Note that this film will show in the Mandel Screening Room on the third floor of the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Joseph McCullough Center, 11610 Euclid Ave. Park free in the CIA lot on the east side of the building (southwest corner of E. 117th St. and Euclid), and enter the building through the east door. Security will direct you from there. No passes, twofers, or radio winners. Here's the trailer.

Harold Lloyd goes to college in silent comedy classic THE FRESHMAN
THE FRESHMAN, Harold Lloyd's most popular comedy of the 1920s, finds the clueless, bespectacled boy-next-door doing whatever it takes to become popular on campus—even joining the college football team! Lloyd was one of the three great "clowns" of the American silent screen (along with Chaplin and Keaton), and The Freshman remains one of his funniest films! On Thursday or Sunday you can see it in a new digital restoration with a new music score by Britain's great silent-film composer Carl Davis.

Jean Gabin falls for deadly female in 1937 French classic GUEULE D'AMOUR (a.k.a LADY KILLER) The great Jean Gabin plays a dashing French Legionnaire who falls for a toxic femme fatale in the superb but little-known-in-America French melodrama GUEULE D’AMOUR (LADY KILLER). Village Voice film critic Elliott Stein called this 1937 Jean Grémillon movie "the revelation" of a 17-film Gabin retrospective in NYC in 2002. See it Sunday at 6:30 pm in a rare, imported print! Special admission is $10; Cinematheque members, CIA I.D. holders, and age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
