9/10-13: Horse Money, Freud, Wajda's The Wedding & more!

John Huston's FREUD stars Montgomery Clift as pioneering psychoanalyst
The Time Out Film Guide calls the 1962 movie FREUD “(John) Huston’s most remarkable film.” Montgomery Clift plays the young Sigmund Freud, living in Vienna and refining his psychoanalytic theories as he treats a seriously neurotic young woman (Susannah York). Never released on video or DVD in the U.S., Freud will be shown Saturday at 6:50pm in its original, uncut version, and in a 35mm print from the Universal Pictures studio archive. Special admission to this 139-min. film is $10; members, CIA I.D. holders, age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners will be honored or accepted. Here's the film's trailer.

Pedro Costa's HORSE MONEY is a ghost story that traverses Portuguese history
HORSE MONEY, the first feature in eight years from the director of Ossos (Bones) and Colossal Youth, finds Portuguese auteur Pedro Costa returning to Fontainhas, the decrepit immigrant neighborhood on the outskirts of Lisbon that was the setting for his previous movies. Ventura, the elderly Cape Verdean émigré worker who was the central figure inColossal Youth, is also the star of this movie. He plays a kind of sleepwalker who wanders down streets, hallways, and hospital corridors -- and through history -- flanked by friends and phantoms from his own and Portugal’s tragic past. This dreamy, hallucinatory tone poem embraces the underclass, seduces the viewer, but safeguards its secrets. Varietycalls Horse Money "strange, hauntingly beautiful…Costa has again made a singular docu-fiction hybrid that defies classification as readily as it re-imagines the possibilities of cinema.” Watch the trailer here, then catch the movie's exclusive Cleveland premiere on Saturday or Sunday.

Wajda's THE WEDDING is the first of 18 "masterpieces of Polish cinema"
In Andrzej Wajda's Polish costume drama THE WEDDING, the late 19th-century wedding between an urban poet and a peasant girl is crashed by phantoms from Poland’s tortured past. This 1973 film version of a famous Polish play was brought to the screen by the country’s greatest filmmaker. (Wajda also directed Ashes and Diamonds, Man of Iron, Katyn, and many others.) It kicks off our 18-film series "Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema," in a new digital restoration on Sunday at 4 pm. Here's Scorsese talking about the retrospective.

FRESH DRESSED surveys hip-hop's influence on fashion world
Sacha Jenkins' new documentary FRESH DRESSED charts the influence of hip-hop on the fashion world—chronicling how African American style migrated from Southern churches to northern cities, and on to international runways and the malls of Middle America. The film, which shows Sunday at 8:35pm, includes lots of music, vintage film clips, and interviews with Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, Sean Combs, and others. Print this email and present it at the box office and see Fresh Dressed for only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Watch the trailer here.

STRAY DOG is surprising, compassionate portrait of Harley-riding Vietnam vet
Acclaimed indie filmmaker Debra Granik follows up her powerful dramasDown to the Bone and Winter’s Bone with STRAY DOG, a frank and surprising documentary about a Missouri Vietnam vet. Sixty-something Ron Hall is a Harley riding, trailer park residing good ol’ boy with ample tattoos and facial hair. He also suffers from PTSD, is learning Spanish, and loves dogs, his granddaughter, and his Mexican wife. Winner of the documentary award at this year's Cleveland Int’l Film Festival, Stray Dog "dedicates itself to breaking through the debris of clichéd, one-dimensional public impressions of vets, bikers, immigrant wives and kids and trailer-park lifestyles (Hollywood Reporter)." It returns to Cleveland on Thursday at 6:45pm. Here's the trailer.

Kathleen Collins' LOSING GROUND is a forgotten African American masterpiece
LOSING GROUND, the second movie written and directed by celebrated playwright, professor, and indie filmmaker Kathleen Collins (who died in 1988 at age 46), was one of the first feature films directed by an African American woman. It was also almost a lost film. Never released theatrically (though we showed it in 1993), this seriocomic tale of two married black professionals (a philosophy professor and a philandering painter) at a crossroads in their life together was rescued from obscurity by Milestone Films, who have restored and re-released it to rave reviews. Bill Gunn and Duane Jones star. The New Yorker hails it as “a nearly lost masterwork.” Catch its Cleveland revival premiere in a new digital restoration on Thursday or Saturday. Watch the trailer here.
