Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters

United States | 2012 | Ben Shapiro

We begin 2013 with a special film program at the new Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland, located at the corner of Mayfield Rd. and Euclid Ave. in University Circle. The movie is a new documentary about celebrated photographer Gregory Crewdson, whose elaborately staged and lit pictures mimic film images and thus cry out for the big screen. Crewdson’s tableaux, which explore the surreal dark side of small-town American life, are realized with the help...

The Well-Digger's Daughter

France | 2011 | Daniel Autueil

Moviegoers loved this new French film when we premiered it in October, so we’re bringing it back. Actor Daniel Autueil first gained fame in America in the 1986 Marcel Pagnol adaptation Jean de Florette. Now hestars in and directs his own Pagnol adaptation—a color remake of a 1940 classic by the popular Provençal writer and filmmaker. Set in sun-dappled southern France early in the 20th century, the movie focuses on a working-man and widower with...

The Big Picture

France | 2010 | Eric Lartigau

This tense psychological thriller follows a successful Paris lawyer (Romain Duris) who takes the identity of a dead man and abandons his upper-class lifestyle in France to live the life he always wanted: as a photographer. But his fears of being exposed make him do some horrible things. Catherine Deneuve co-stars in this acclaimed film that evokes both The Talented Mr. Ripley and Antonioni’s The Passenger. “Spellbinding.” –The Hollywood Reporter.

Gilda

United States | 1946 | Charles Vidor

Rita Hayworth stars in one of the sexiest film noirs ever made, a South America-set drama about a gambler (Glenn Ford) who gets involved with a rich casino owner’s alluring wife. The film’s hottest scene finds Hayworth performing a kind-of clothed strip-tease while purring “Put the Blame on Mame.”

Searching For Sugar Man

Sweden, United Kingdom | 2012 | Malik Bendjelloul

This inspiring documentary tells the amazing story of Sixto Rodriguez, a talented Detroit folksinger and songwriter who released two failed albums in the early 1970s and then vanished from the music scene. But in apartheid-era South Africa, where his songs and anthems were hugely popular among young people, Rodriguez was a pop icon and legend—though he didn’t know it.

His Girl Friday

United States | 1940 | Howard Hawks

In one of the greatest newspaper movies ever made (and certainly the funniest), Cary Grant plays a conniving newspaper editor who will do anything to win back his star reporter (and ex-wife) before she marries a boring insurance salesman and moves away. He starts by convincing her to do one last story—on a convicted murderer scheduled for imminent execution—and soon all hell breaks loose! This breathless, hilarious screwball comedy has been called “perhaps the funniest,...

The Paperboy

United States | 2012 | Lee Daniels

Lee Daniels’ follow-up to Precious received the longest sustained standing ovation (16 min.) at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. It’s a lurid, tawdry, sexually-charged Southern melodrama, set in the torrid heat and alligator-infested swamps of 1969 Florida, about a Miami crime reporter (Matthew McConaughey) who returns to his backwater hometown to investigate a possible bum murder rap. John Cusack (startlingly scary) is the redneck death row inmate who may be wrongly imprisoned, Nicole Kidman (superb)...

Brazil, France, Germany, Portugal | 2012 | Miguel Gomes

Named one of 2012’s “top ten” films by Cahiers du Cinéma magazine, the new movie by rising Portuguese auteur Miguel Gomes (Our Beloved Month of August) is a b&w art film divided into two chapters. The chapter headings duplicate those in F.W, Murnau’s bipartite 1931 silent film Tabu—but appear in reverse order. “Paradise Lost,” which opens Gomes’ film, takes place in contemporary Lisbon where a middle-aged woman checks in on the older, slightly batty woman...

France, United States | 1993 | Tony Scott

Just before he directed Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino wrote the screenplay for this bloody, wacky, young-lovers-on-the-run movie.

The great supporting cast includes Dennis Hopper, Gary Oldman, Christopher Walken, Brad Pitt, Samuel L. Jackson, and Val Kilmer (as Elvis!). Tony Scott, 1944-2012.

Solaris

USSR | 1972 | Andrei Tarkovsky

Andrei Tarkovsky’s philosophical sci-fi epic has long been regarded as the Soviet 2001: A Space Odyssey. (Tarkovsky, a Christian, reputedly made it as a response to the “atheism” of the Kubrick film.) The movie follows a psychologist who is sent to a distant space station to learn what is killing some of the cosmonauts there and causing others to see visions. The key seems to be the nearby, “sentient” planet of Solaris.
