Sometimes a Great Notion

United States | 1970 | Paul Newman

Paul Newman and Henry Fonda star in Newman’s second directorial outing, based on the novel by Ken Kesey. The two screen legends play stubbornly independent Oregon loggers who refuse to stop work during a crippling general timber strike, thus angering the locals. The movie’s one undeniably great sequence features Richard Jaeckel, who was nominated for an Oscar. With Lee Remick. “Four stars…A dazzling oddity: simultaneously melodramatic and stoic, goofy and majestic, rousing and devastating.” –Time...

God Bless America

United States | 2012 | Bobcat Goldthwait

The latest cry of rage from comedian-turned- filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait (Shakes the Clown, World’s Greatest Dad) tells of a divorced, middle-aged, terminally-ill everyman (Joel Mur- ray, brother of Bill) who teams up with a high school girl to rid American society of some of its most offensive elements: people who text during movies, reality show stars, NASCAR fans, et al. Goldthwait describes his movie as “a very violent film about kindness.”

Here

United States | 2011 | Braden King

Boxoffice magazine calls Here “so fully achieved it restores your faith in the cinema.” It’s a dreamy, ravishingly photographed tone poem about two out-of-place loners—an American cartographer (Ben Foster) mapping Armenia and a Paris-based Armenian photographer (Lubna Azabel of Incendies) alienated from her homeland—who team up to explore the countryside while charting the human heart. “Critics Pick…A stunner.” –The NY Times.

The Cat and the Canary

United States | 1927 | Paul Leni

This stylish silent horror-comedy, made in Hollywood by German Expressionist filmmaker Paul Leni, created the template for subsequent “old dark house” movies—and for Universal’s horror pictures of the 1930s. Based on a 1920s Broadway hit, it’s a moody movie in which a group of relatives gather in a decaying mansion for the reading of a rich man’s will. The designated heir stands to inherit a lot of money as long as she is not insane—and...

The Long Day Closes

United Kingdom | 1992 | Terence Davies

Here’s a new 35mm color print of Terence Davies’ exquisite memory piece in which he returns to the world of his childhood—1950s working-class Liverpool. Bud, an impressionable 11-year-old living with his mother and older siblings, finds his dreams nourished at the neighborhood movie house. The film’s nostalgia, rendered in one stunning image after another, is buttressed by an eclectic, evocative soundtrack of hymns, popular songs, classical music, radio broadcasts, and movie soundtracks. “The work of...

The Deep Blue Sea

United Kingdom, United States | 2011 | Terrence Davies
