Alps

France, Greece | 2011 | Yorgos Lanthimos

The new film from the director of Dogtooth is as strange as that Oscar-nominated movie but perhaps even more chilling and haunting. Alps tells of four people who make their living by impersonating individuals who have recently died, role-playing in order to help grieving survivors gradually come to terms with the loss of their loved ones. Blending absurdist comedy with human tragedy, this tale of surrogates is truly one of a kind. “Puzzling and provocative…Has...

Killer Joe

United States | 2012 | William Friedkin

Matthew McConaughey plays a Texas cop who moonlights as a hit man in William (The Exorcist, The French Connection) Friedkin’s florid, filthy, foul-mouthed redneck freakshow, based on a play by Tracy Letts (August: Osage County ). With Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Gina Gershon, and (in an Oscar-worthy turn) Thomas Haden Church. “A hideously funny tabloid noir.” –Village Voice.

The Great Silence

France, Italy | 1968 | Sergio Corbucci

Sergio Corbucci (1927-1990) was an Italian director of violent and stylish spaghetti westerns, including the original Django (1966), which spawned one official sequel and over 30 unofficial ones. (Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained opens in December.) But tonight we show a different Corbucci classic—one that filmmaker Alex Cox (Repo Man) regards as “the greatest spaghetti western ever made.” The Great Silence stars Klaus Kinski (Aguirre, Fitzcarraldo, Nosferatu the Vampyre) as Loco, a vicious bounty hunter, and...

Almayer's Folly

Belgium, France | 2011 | Chantal Akerman

The new film by master filmmaker Chantal Akerman (Jeanne Dielman) has the highest overall metacritic.com rating of 2012: 92 out of 100! Based on Joseph Conrad’s first novel (but updated by many decades), this hypnotic, dreamy, anti-colonialist film tells of a brooding European treasure hunter living in the lush jungles of Southeast Asia. When his estranged, embittered mixed-race daughter, now grown, returns home after being educated in Europe, Almayer tries to reconnect with her. But...

Trial on the Road

USSR, 1971 | Aleksei Guerman

Banned for 15 years by Soviet authorities for injecting ambiguity, nuance, and anti-heroism into a genre (the WWII drama) that was always solidly heroic (if not downright mythic), Aleksei Guerman’s first solo work is a masterpiece. The movie tells of a Red Army officer turned Nazi collaborator who is recaptured by Russian partisans and must prove his loyalty to their cause by going on a series of dangerous missions. “The most interesting debut film in...

The Seventh Companion

USSR | 1968 | Grigori Aronov, Aleksei Guerman

Set during the “Red Terror” campaign that swept across Russia in the wake of the 1917 Revolution, Aleksei Guerman’s first feature (co-directed with Grigori Aronov) tells of a former Tsarist army officer in St. Petersburg who is arrested as a counterrevolutionary.

The Trial

France, Germany, Italy | 1962 | Orson Welles

“The Trial is the best film I have ever made,” said Orson Welles about his virtuosic, visually-stunning adaptation of Kafka’s nightmarish classic. Tony Perkins plays the young bank clerk Joseph K., who is arrested one day on unspecified charges and becomes entrapped in a labyrinthine justice system while trying to learn what he did wrong.

An Inn at Tokyo

Japan | 1935 | Yasujiro Ozu

In Japan silent films were accompanied not only by live music, but also by a benshi, or silent film narrator. Standing next to the screen, the benshi provided a running commentary on the movie while relaying the film’s story in a theatrical manner (playing multiple roles with a variety of voices). Some benshi were so popular that they were more of a draw than the movie itself! Though benshi disappeared with the coming of sound,...

In this one-of-a-kind modern western written by Dalton Trumbo (from a novel by Edward Abbey), Kirk Douglas plays a fiercely independent, freedom-loving cowboy who breaks out of prison and tries to escape to Mexico before a posse armed with advanced technology can apprehend him. This poignant, “passing of the Old West” drama indelibly captures two conflicting American ways of life. It is reputedly Kirk Douglas’ favorite of all his films. With Gena Rowlands and Walter...

Teddy Bear

Denmark | 2012 | Mads Matthiesen

An imposing but painfully shy 38-year-old Danish bodybuilder (Kim Kold) who lives at home with his mom and has never experienced love travels to Thailand to find a bride. This sweet, disarming film is one of the year’s most pleasant (and acclaimed) surprises. As the man of steel with a heart of cotton candy, Kim Kold “gives what may be the performance of the year” (Time Out Film Guide ).
