Cinematheque . 12/5-8: AT BERKELEY, A TOUCH OF SIN, PORTRAIT OF JASON & more!
Inflammatory Chinese drama A TOUCH OF SIN is one of 2013's must-see movies
Jia Zhangke’s new film, A TOUCH OF SIN, marks a radical change of pace for the acclaimed Chinese director of Still Life and The World. It’s an angry contemporary drama that re-creates four under-reported but actual incidents from recent Chinese history—two killing sprees, one murder, and one suicide—all involving dissatisfied or exploited workers. Film Comment calls it "an explosive indictment of the Chinese economic miracle and its brutalizing effect on ordinary Chinese life.” It won the award for Best Screenplay at this year's Cannes Film Festival, was a 2013 New York Film Festival selection, and just last week was named one of 2013's ten best films by both Sight & Sound and Cahiers du Cinema magazines. Now it looks like it may not be released in China. But Clevelanders can see A TOUCH OF SIN this Saturday or Sunday. Sunday afternoon moviegoers should allow extra time to park; Holiday CircleFest takes place in University Circle from 1 to 7 pm on 12/8. Watch the trailer here.
Frederick Wiseman looks at UC Berkeley in inspiring, hopeful AT BERKELEY
For his 40th feature AT BERKELEY, America’s foremost chronicler of U.S. institutions Frederick Wiseman (Titicut Follies, High School, et al.) captures the inner workings and struggles of the University of California at Berkeley, a public university that is also one of the nation’s great centers of higher learning. Culling 250 hours of footage (shot over 12 weeks) to a mere 244 minutes, Wiseman shows how U.C. Berkeley is facing numerous challenges—from finite financial aid and massive cuts in state funding to campus protests and preserving the humanities in a high-tech world. See this 2013 New York Film Festival selection, "one of Wiseman’s best” (according to Variety), on Thursday or Friday. Special admission is $10; Cinematheque members and CIA I.D.holders $8; age 25 & under $7 (no passes, twofers, or radio winners). But if you print this email and present it at the box office, you can see AT BERKELEY for only $8 ($7 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Here's the trailer.
Shirley Clarke's 1967 classic PORTRAIT OF JASON is an unforgettable portrait of an unforgettable person
Ingmar Bergman once called PORTRAIT OF JASON "the most extraordinary film I've seen in my life." This unique 1967 classic was shot by indie giant Shirley Clarke in her Chelsea Hotel apartment during one marathon, 12-hour session that started at 9 pm on 12/2/66. In the film, Jason Holliday, a flamboyant, gay, 33-year-old African-American hustler and aspiring cabaret singer, recounts his tortured, troubled life for Clarke's camera while drinking. Clarke continually goads Jason for more stories, more songs, more truth (was he making this stuff up?) until his grandly theatrical façade shatters. On Saturday and Sunday we show a new 35mm restoration of Clarke’s cinéma vérité classic. It has a 100% “fresh” rating on RottenTomatoes.com, and according to The Village Voice, "says more about race, class, and sexuality than just about any movie before or since." Watch a trailer here.
Gary Cooper, Claudette Colbert star in Lubitsch's BLUEBEARD'S EIGHTH WIFE
Claudette Colbert, Gary Cooper, and David Niven star in BLUEBEARD'S EIGHTH WIFE, a 1938 comedy directed by Ernst Lubitsch and written by Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder. (Throughout his career Wilder kept a sign in his office that said "How would Lubitsch do it?"). Colbert plays the eighth wife of an oft-divorced millionaire (Cooper), but she is determined not to end up like her predecessors. Don't miss this classic on Saturday or Sunday when it shows in a 35mm print from the Universal Pictures studio archive!
