7/11-15: My Left Foot, Jason and the Argonauts, Olivier Assayas' new film & more!

Ray Harryhausen remembered with 1963 classic JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS
The great stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen, who appeared in person at the Cinematheque in 1993 (thanks to the efforts of longtime local fan David Massaro), died in May—but not before inspiring a whole new generation of FX wizards. Most experts (and the master himself) regard the 1963 adventure fantasy JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS as his greatest achievement. The mythic tale of an ancient Greek hero’s voyage to find the Golden Fleece allowed Harryhausen to realize some of his most fantastic creations—from Harpies and a Hydra to an army of skeleton warriors. Don't miss JASON, which has music by Bernard Herrmann, in a 35mm print on Friday or Saturday. David Massaro will introduce both shows. Here's the trailer.

Daniel Day-Lewis stars in MY LEFT FOOT
Daniel Day-Lewis won the first of his three Academy Awards for his amazing performance as Christy Brown in Jim Sheridan's 1989 film MY LEFT FOOT. Brown (1932-81) was an Irishman with cerebral palsy who was born into a working-class family and became a writer and painter, despite having use only of his left foot. As Brown’s mother, Brenda Fricker also won an Oscar, and the film was nominated for three others, including Best Picture and Director. See it in 35mm on Thursday or Saturday. Watch the trailer here.

French students confront legacy of 1968 in Olivier Assayas' SOMETHING IN THE AIR
is the highly acclaimed, semi-autobiographical new French film from the director of CARLOS and SUMMER HOURS. Set during the turbulent years following the country’s May 1968 student uprising, the movie focuses on a high school senior (an aspiring painter) who is drawn to radical politics but must find his place in the world as both a leftist and an artist. Two young women—a free-spirited hippie chick and a more grounded documentary filmmaker—help set him on the right path. On Friday or Saturday, don't miss the first Cleveland showing of this 2012 New York Film Festival selection that has a Rotten Tomatoes "fresh" rating of 82. Click here to watch the trailer.

Teen girl bff's in 1962 London fumble to adulthood in affecting GINGER & ROSA
Sally (ORLANDO) Potter’s affecting new film GINGER & ROSA focuses on two teenage girls in 1962 London—best friends living in the shadow of atomic annihilation during the Cold War. The two take different paths to adulthood. One embraces anti-nuke activism; the other the burgeoning sexual revolution. The movie's great cast features Elle Fanning, Alice Englert (Jane Campion’s daughter), Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks, Oliver Platt, Timothy Spall, and Annette Bening. Don't miss it on Thursday or Friday. Print this email and present it at the box office and see GINGER & ROSA for only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out)

Brit black comedy SIGHTSEERS maps a bloody awful summer holiday
is the acclaimed new film from Britain's rocketing up-and-comer Ben Wheatley (KILL LIST, DOWN TERRACE). Two geeky, thirtysomething Brit misfits, Tina and Chris, take a relaxing “caravan” holiday in Northern England that soon degenerates into a murderous rampage. Produced by Edgar Wright (SHAUN OF THE DEAD), this movie has been called "a pitch-black and sometimes gorily violent laugh-riot” by The Hollywood Reporter and was awarded five stars (the highest rating) by Time Out New York. Adults can catch it next Monday in the Mandel Screening Room located on the third floor of CIA’s Joseph McCullough Center, 11610 Euclid Ave. Park free in the rear CIA lot off E. 117th St. Here's the very funny original trailer.
