10/9-12: Nymphomaniac Director's Cut, Fishing Without Nets, Crucified Lovers & more!

10/07/14  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Sundance award winner FISHING WITHOUT NETS is first feature from Cleveland's Think Media Studios
Cutler Hodierne's FISHING WITHOUT NETS, the first feature film produced by Cleveland’s Think Media Studios, won the Directing Award in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Shot in East Africa with a cast of Somali non-actors, the film is a mesmerizing mix of action-thriller and art film in which a desperate young Somali fisherman reluctantly joins a band of pirates in order to support his family. Fishing Without Nets follows in the wake of A Hijacking and Captain Phillips, but is the first Somali pirate drama to tells its story from the bandits’ point of view. Variety called it "an accomplished feature debut.” The Wrap found it “Sundance’s most beautiful film.” Catch its exclusive Cleveland premiere on Friday or Saturday. Watch the trailer here.

CANNIBAL is creepy, stylish Spanish tale of love, death, and human flesh
In the dark, stylish, stunningly lensed Spanish romance CANNIBAL, a refined Spanish tailor who is also a serial killer and a connoisseur of human flesh (most of the violence is offscreen) finds himself falling in love with the woman who is his next victim. The Hollywood Reporter calls it "a beautifully composed character study...Both chilling and moving.” Adults can see it 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)

Exquisite CRUCIFIED LOVERS is one of Mizoguchi's greatest films
CRUCIFIED LOVERS is Kenji Mizoguchi’s exquisite, heartbreaking adaptation of a 17th-century puppet theater play by Chikamatsu Monzaemon (Japan’s Shakespeare). The 1954 film tells of two illicit lovers who flee their wrathful society, but later return to face the music. Masterfully photographed by Kazuo Miyagawa, this movie is ranked by some Japanese critics as the director’s best. Don't miss seeing it in an imported 35mm print on Saturday at 5:00 pm. Special admission is $10; members, CIA I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners. Above photo © 1954 Kadokawa Pictures.

THE EMPTY HOURS is sensuous coming-of-age film set on Mexican coast
While managing his uncle’s rent-by-the-hour motel in a remote part of Veracruz, Mexico, 17-year-old Sebastián gets to know Miranda, a regular customer whose lover is always late to arrive. The languid, delicate, sensuous Spanish/Mexican coming-of-age film THE EMPTY HOURS showed in this year’s Cleveland Int’l Film Festival. The New York Times has designated it a “Critics' Pick," calling it "a delight.” See it Thursday or Saturday. Here's the trailer.

NYMPHOMANIAC: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT contains 90 minutes of previously unseen footage
Earlier this year Lars von Trier’s latest provocation Nymphomaniac—a self-proclaimed “porno epic” in two parts—was released to North American theaters (including the Cinematheque). But this four-hour movie was actually an abridged version of von Trier’s original (and intended) film, which ran five-and-a-half hours. On Sunday afternoon and evening you can see that unexpurgated director’s cut in a marathon screening divided by a dinner break. NYMPHOMANIAC, VOLUME I: THE DIRECTOR’S CUT starts at 3:30pm and lasts 150 minutes.) So what has been restored to this longer version? Well, since the film is an eyebrow-raising account of one woman’s sexually active life, there is more sex, and more explicit sex. There are also more jokes, more head-scratching anomalies, and more development of the characters played by Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Shia LeBoeuf, Christian Slater, and Uma Thurman—and (in Volume II) Jamie Bell and Willem Dafoe. No one under 18 will be admitted to this movie, which is in English. Special admission to either part of nymphomaniac is $12; Cinematheque members, CIA I.D. holders, and those age 25-18 $9. Buy tickets to both parts at the same time and pay only $4 for Volume II. No passes, twofers, or radio winners will be honored. See next blurb.

Volume II of NYMPHOMANIAC: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT lasts three hours
NYMPHOMANIAC, VOLUME II: THE DIRECTOR’S CUT shows Sunday at 7:00pm. See previous blurb for description and details.
