9/25-28: John Waters in person, Sansho the Bailiff, three by Joanna Hogg

09/24/14  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

EXHIBITION is first of three films by Joanna Hogg showing this weekend
Tom Hiddleston is one of the stars of EXHIBITION, the most recent film by Joanna Hogg, a rising Brit filmmaker whose three features we show this weekend. (See next two blurbs.) Viv Albertine (of the punk band the Slits) and Liam Gillick (a prominent conceptual artist) play a couple of fiftyish London creatives whose stale marriage is further destabilized when they decide to sell the modernist house where they have lived and worked for two decades. This sleek, austere domicile with large windows and sliding panels is both a comfort and an irritant to them; will vacating it be the final straw in their flagging relationship, or is the soulless structure itself triggering their alienation? The Guardian calls Exhibition “challenging, sensual, brilliant film-making.” Adults can see it Thursday or Sunday. Here's the trailer.

See Joanna Hogg's 2007 UNRELATED and see Tom Hiddleston's big-screen debut
Tom Hiddleston made his big-screen debut in UNRELATED, the acute and impressive first feature by Joanna Hogg. The 2007 film focuses on Anna, a childless 40-year-old British woman who goes on vacation in Tuscany with her longtime friend Verena, who is married with a brood of teenagers. But tensions arise between the two women when Anna hangs out more with the teens than with the adults. The Guardian calls Unrelated “a tremendously accomplished, subtle and supremely confident feature.” Catch its Cleveland premiere on Thursday or Friday. Print this email and present it at the box office and pay 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.

Joanna Hogg's ARCHIPELAGO chronicles tension-filled family getaway
Joanna Hogg's highly acclaimed second feature ARCHIPELAGO, like her first (Unrelated, see previous blurb), features Tom Hiddleston and tells of a tension-filled holiday. This time the location is one of the Isles of Scilly, off Britain's Cornish coast, where two members of an upper-middle-class family wish bon voyage to a third who's leaving for a year in Africa. But mostly they fight and fall apart as buried anger and other repressed emotions surface. Variety hails Archipelago as "a beautifully distilled and literally still work that lingers in the mind long after its conclusion.” It makes its exclusive Cleveland premiere on Friday and Sunday. Watch the trailer.

Sublime historical epic SANSHO THE BAILIFF continues Mizoguchi series
Critic Robin Wood once called Kenji Mizoguchi's sublime 1954 drama SANSHO THE BAILIFF “the greatest movie I have ever seen.” An aristocratic family living in 11th-century Japan is broken up, exiled, and sold into slavery. Over many years, the family members struggle to reunite. This deeply moving drama of great formal beauty advocates for empathy, justice, and mercy. Kazuo Miyagawa did the exquisite cinematography. See it in 35mm on Sunday at 3:45 pm. CWRU's Linda Ehrlich, a noted scholar of Japanese cinema, will lead a a post-film discussion. Special admission is $10; members, CIA I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners will be accepted. NOTE: Please use Bellflower Road entrance to CIA parking lot for this showing.

John Waters' show THIS FILTHY WORLD: FILTHIER AND DIRTIER is sold out!
John Waters, the Baltimore underground filmmaker (Pink Flamingos) turned American cultural icon, appears in person on Saturday night to present THIS FILTHY WORLD: FILTHIER AND DIRTIER, his unique one-man show that has delighted audiences around the world. Waters’ “vaudeville act” (as he calls it) is a 75-minute monologue in which the man whom William Burroughs once called “the Pope of Trash” dissects his checkered film career and unusual tastes. The outré auteur with the pencil mustache will detail his early negative artistic influences -- from true crime and exploitation films to lunatic fashions -- and will also explore the extremities of the contemporary art world. Waters’ talk will be followed by a Q&A, then by a book signing. (Copies of his new tome Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America will be sold onsite by Mac’s Backs.) No one under 18 will be admitted to this sold-out show. However, should any tickets become available at the last minute, they will go on sale at the Cinematheque box office starting at 6:00 pm on Saturday. Cost per ticket is $40; Cinematheque members and CIA I.D. holders $30; anyone age 25-18 $25 (cash/check only). No passes, twofers, or radio winners will be accepted. Seats not reserved.
