1/6-9: Howl, Tillman Story, Godard's Every Man For Himself & More!

01/04/11  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

James Franco plays Allen Ginsberg in HOWL The ubiquitous James Franco plays Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's three-part panegyric to Ginsberg's landmark 1955 opus HOWL . Cross-cutting among events that inspired the writing of the poem, and the author's public reading of it, and the notorious post-publication obscenity trial, the movie mixes live action with imaginative animated segments. With Mary-Louise Parker, Jon Hamm, Jeff Daniels, David Strathairn, and Treat Williams. Watch the trailer and then catch the whole HOWL on Thursday or Friday. Print this email and present it at the box office and see HOWL for only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! Multi-award-winning SAMSON AND DELILAH introduces promising new Aussie auteur Winner of the Camera d'Or for best first film at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival and seven Australian Film Institute Awards (including Best Film, Director, Original Screenplay, and Cinematography), Warwick Thornton's SAMSON AND DELILAH is a laconic drama that follows two Aboriginal teenagers as they escape their boring lives in the central Australian desert by stealing a car and high-tailing it to the big city. But tragedy shadows these young lovers on the run. Time Out New York calls SAMSON AND DELILAH "the best Australian movie in years?You'll feel as if Aussie cinema indeed discovered its next great voice." Discover it yourself on Thursday or Friday. Here's the British trailer. Isabelle Huppert and Nathalie Baye star in Godard's 1980 EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF Jean-Luc Godard's self-proclaimed "second first film" EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF (1980) was shot on 35mm after a decade of experimental video work with heavy political content. Jacques Dutronc plays a disenchanted filmmaker (named "Godard") who has two women in his life: an ex (Nathalie Baye) and a prostitute (Isabelle Huppert, above). Despite familiar Godardian themes (men and women, sex and commerce, cinema), the movie is one of the master's freshest, funniest, and most accessible works, with brilliant use of slow- and stop-motion. In an article published in the Nov. 11, 2010 New York Times, Manohla Dargis called EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF "the film of the moment." See the new 35mm color print in Cleveland this Saturday or Sunday! Angry, acclaimed documentary reveals "the rest of" THE TILLMAN STORY What really caused the shocking 2004 death of 27-year-old football star Pat Tillman, who turned down a multimillion-dollar contract with the Arizona Cardinals to join the army and fight in Afghanistan? Amir Bar-Lev's THE TILLMAN STORY, one of the most acclaimed movies of 2010 and a likely Oscar nominee for Best Documentary Feature, reveals that the government's official story did not tell the whole truth. The New York Times called the film "devastating" and named it a "Critics' Pick." Read the full review here. l Then see the film Saturday or Sunday night. Chiara Mastroianni stars as stressed-out wife and mother in MAKING PLANS FOR LENA MAKING PLANS FOR LENA is the new film by France's Christophe Honoré, director of MA MERE and DANS PARIS. In a role written expressly for her, Chiara Mastroianni (daughter of Marcello Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve) plays a wife and mother coming apart at the seams after leaving her unfaithful husband (Jean-Marc Barr). Retreating to her family's seasonal home in Breton, she spends the summer dealing with advice from well-meaning but clueless relatives and fending off advances from an old boyfriend (Louis Garrel). Time Out New York says that "(Mastroianni's) woman-on-the-verge-of-a-nervous-breakdown act is second to none." Watch the trailer and then make plans to see LENA on Saturday or Sunday. CIA Prez to discuss romantic films at Feb. 5 Cleveland Int'l Film Festival fundraiser Film scholar and movie buff Grafton Nunes (he's also President of the Cleveland Institute of Art) and Plain Dealer Book Editor Karen Long will discuss their favorite romantic films and books during a special event on Sat., Feb. 5 at 7 pm at The Merrymeeting Group in Independence.
