Feb 16-19: Faust, Women In Love, House Of Pleasures & More!

02/14/12  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Italian horror classic THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY shows in complete, uncut print! Here's a 35mm color & scope print (from Europe) of the original, uncut version of THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, Lucio (ZOMBIE, THE BEYOND) Fulci's notorious 1981 Italian splatter film that has been seen over the years in various shorter cuts. The movie tells of a deranged, flesh-eating zombie who lives in the basement of a New England mansion (unknown to the people who live there) but comes out from time to time to commit grisly murders. No one under 18 admitted will be admitted to this film that is in English (with Danish subtitles on our print). See it Thursday or Sunday. It will be preceded at showtime both nights by a selection of rare scope trailers for other grindhouse classics. NYC pianist Joseph Rubin to accompany F. W. Murnau's FAUST on Saturday FAUST (1926), F.W. Murnau's last German silent film before he moved to Hollywood and made the exquisite SUNRISE, tells the famous story of an elderly man who sells his soul to the Devil in order to be young again. The film's production design and interplay of light and shadow are fabulous (what else would you expect from the director of NOSFERATU?), evoking German romantic painters. Mephistopheles is played by the great Emil Jannings, who also starred in THE BLUE ANGEL and THE LAST LAUGH among many other classic movies. FAUST shows on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday, New York-based musician Joseph Rubin, who played for INTOLERANCE on 1/7, will provide live piano accompaniment. Sunday's show will have recorded music. Glenda Jackson and Alan Bates star in Ken Russell's sensuous WOMEN IN LOVE WOMEN IN LOVE, the 1969 film that made the late Ken Russell famous, is also one of the director's most restrained and artful works (though its depiction of male genitalia did spark a scandal). Glenda Jackson (Oscar winner for Best Actress), Alan Bates, Oliver Reed, and Jennie Linden star in this visually lush adaptation of D. H. Lawrence's sensuous novel, about the romantic -- and sexual -- entanglements of two sisters and two men who are best friends in 1920s England. See this gorgeous, erotic movie in a 35mm color print on Saturday or Sunday. HOUSE OF PLEASURES looks at life inside Paris brothel during La Belle Epoque Nominated for a Cesar Award (France's Oscar) for Best Picture, the sensuous, beautifully shot, lavishly appointed 2011 French film HOUSE OF PLEASURES transports us back in time to the hermetic, cloistered world of a high class brothel in Belle Epoque Paris. There poor young women hoping for a better life entertain wealthy gentlemen-businessmen, politicians, artists, aristocrats. Though filmmaker Bertrand Bonello definitely conveys nostalgia for the lost elegance of this era, and for the camaraderie among the women, he does not turn a blind eye to the dangers of their profession (drugs, diseases, violence), and his languid, hypnotic movie is punctuated by shocking moments of real horror. Also startling is the film's anachronistic use of modern pop music, which many will swoon over. No one under 18 will be admitted to this "visually ravishing, troublingly seductive" (L.A. Weekly) movie that we premiere on Friday and Saturday. Pudovkin's silent masterpiece MOTHER receives rare screening Next to Eisenstein, Vsevolod Pudovkin was probably the greatest director of the Soviet silent era. But while Eisenstein focused on collective heroes in his revolutionary works, Pudovkin's heroes were individuals of great courage. This is well seen in his electrifying first feature MOTHER (1926), based on a Gorky novel, which chronicles a peasant woman's radicalization during the Russian Revolution of 1905. At the 1958 Brussels World's Fair, MOTHER was voted one of the 12 best movies ever made. Nowadays it's rarely revived, but you can see it Thursday in a print with a music track.
