The Parade

Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia | 2011 | Srdjan Dragojević

In this wry Balkan take on The Seven Samurai, a homophobic Serbian gangster and war vet recruits some former soldiers from enemy ex-Yugoslavian factions—a Croat, a Bosnian, a Kosovan Albanian—to help him provide security for Belgrade’s Gay Pride parade. This daring black comedy, a spoof of Balkan machismo and prejudice, was a huge hit in the former Yugoslavia—heartening since Belgrade’s 2010 Gay Pride parade was marred by violence and...

No

Chile | 2012 | Pablo Larrain

Gael García Bernal stars in this Chilean movie that was one of the five nominees for last year's Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. (It opened at the Cedar Lee during the run of the Cleveland Int'l Film Festival, so many moviegoers missed it.) Bernal plays a hotshot advertising man who joins the campaign to oust Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet, after 15 years in office, during a constitutionally mandated 1988 referendum. His innovative, irreverent...

Spring Breakers

United States | 2012 | Harmony Korine

Disney Channel teen heartthrobs Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens play “bad girls” who find themselves on a college spring break from hell in Harmony Korine’s stylish, funny, chilling new provocation. James Franco is terrific as Alien, a Florida gangster and rapper with cornrows and gold teeth.

The Voice Of The Moon

France, Italy | 1990 | Federico Fellini

Roberto Benigni stars in Federico Fellini’s final film, the only Fellini movie never released in North America. (We will show a rare 35mm print from Europe that is temporarily in the U.S.) A hit in Italy, where it was nominated for nine David di Donatello Awards (Italy’s Oscar) and won three (including Best Actor), The Voice of the Moon is a surrealistic comedy/drama in which a former mental patient obsessed with the moon (a true...

The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre

Room 237

United States | 2012 | Rodney Ascher

One of the nuttiest, funniest, most jaw-dropping (and most acclaimed) films of the year played too briefly in Cleveland. Room 237 refers to a mysterious room in the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, and this new movie explores the hidden meanings of that 1980 horror classic. In voiceover narration, five obsessed fans relay five very different (and elaborate) interpretations of the movie. On screen, film clips, maps, diagrams, etc. support these often outlandish...

Antiviral

Canada | 2012 | Brandon Cronenberg

Brandon Cronenberg's first feature is a futuristic bio-thriller worthy of his famous father, David. Set in a celebrity-smitten society where viruses infecting sick pop stars are sold on the black market so that sick (in the head) fans can “commune” with their idols, the movie tells of one dealer who contracts a virulent disease he's peddling. He frantically searches for a cure. "A petri dish of high-concept perversity and cultural commentary teeming with lo-fi ickiness."...

My Left Foot

Ireland, United States | 1989 | Jim Sheridan

Daniel Day-Lewis won his first of three Academy Awards for his amazing performance as Christy Brown (1932-81), an Irishman with cerebral palsy who was born into a working-class family and became a writer and painter, despite having use only of his left foot. As Brown’s mother, Brenda Fricker also won an Oscar, and the film was nominated for three others, including Best Picture and Director.

Ginger & Rosa

Canada, Croatia, Denmark, United Kingdom | 2012 | Sally Potter

Sally (Orlando) Potter’s affecting new film focuses on two teenage girls in 1962 London—best friends living in the shadow of atomic annihilation during the Cold War. The two take different paths to adulthood. One embraces anti-nuke activism; the other the burgeoning sexual revolution. The great cast features Elle Fanning, Alice Englert (Jane Campion’s daughter), Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks, Oliver Platt, Timothy Spall, and Annette Bening.

Jason and the Argonauts

United Kingdom, United States | 1963 | Don Chaffeyu

The great stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen (1920-2013), who appeared in person at the Cinematheque in 1993 (thanks to the efforts of longtime local fan David Massaro), died in May—but not before inspiring a whole new generation of FX wizards. Most experts (and the master himself) regard this 1963 adventure fantasy as his greatest achievement. The mythic tale of an ancient Greek hero’s voyage to find the Golden Fleece allowed Harryhausen to realize some of his...

Something In The Air

France | 2012 | Olivier Assayas

This highly acclaimed, semi-autobiographical new French film from the director of Carlos and Summer Hours is set during the turbulent years following the country’s May 1968 student uprising. A high school senior who is drawn to radical politics tries to find his place in the world, both as a leftist and an artist. Two young women—a free-spirited hippie chick and a more grounded documentary filmmaker—help set him on the right path. A New York Film...

Produced by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead). “A pitch-black and sometimes gorily violent laugh-riot.” –The Hollywood Reporter. “Five stars (highest rating)...A sick gag of a film that’s bound to scar only the irony-challenged.” –Time Out New York....

United States | 2012 | Terrence Malick

The exquisite new film from the director of Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line, and Tree of Life employs sublime visuals, snippets of classical music, and snatches of dialogue and voiceover narration to tell a skeletal story of a young French woman (Olga Kurylenko) and an American man (Ben Affleck) who are happy in France but grow apart in America. The actors and camera never stop moving. Like Malick’s other movies, this lyrical...

It’s a dazzling, magical movie in which the daughter of a master matador escapes her cruel and conniving stepmother and joins a traveling troupe of tiny toreadors.

Special Free Screening! A Tribute to Christina Gaston

The American Astronaut

United States | 2001 | Cory McAbee

Tonight we remember musician, arts lover, and Cinematheque volunteer Christina Gaston, who passed away suddenly in April, at age 34. We will present a free screening of one of her favorite films. The American Astronaut is a loony, low-tech sci-fi Western/musical about an interplanetary trader from Earth (writer-director-singer Cory McAbee) who encounters an old nemesis while traversing the solar system—rendered here as a grubby frontier populated by tough guys and other ne’er-do-wells. Prior to the...

It’s a sexy, full-bodied vampire picture about a smitten screenwriter who willingly submits to a strawberry blonde bloodsucker, until her even more vampish and voracious sister (Roxane Mesquida) disrupts the couple’s bloody bliss. “Saucily thumbing its nose at the insipid teen love of the Twilight franchise, Kiss reimagines its bloodsuckers as horny, supercilious Eurotrash with addiction...

France | 2012 | François Ozon

The New Yorker calls the clever, playful new film from veteran French helmer François Ozon (Swimming Pool, 8 Women) "one of his best.” And they’re right. A literature teacher at a French high school finds himself seduced by the written compositions of a precocious student who has insinuated himself into a classmate’s "typical" bourgeois home and begun reporting about what he sees there. The instructor becomes hooked by this ongoing voyeuristic narrative, and pretty soon...

Kolya

Czech Republic, France, United Kingdom | 1996 | Jan Svĕrák

Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, this funny, charming, and touching drama is set in 1980s Soviet bloc Czechoslovakia, where a blacklisted, middle-aged cellist who has lost his philharmonic gig decides to earn some money by marrying a Russian woman seeking Czechoslovak citizenship.

Augustine

France | 2012 | Alice Winocour

Female “hysteria” is the subject of this lush period piece, which chronicles the relationship between pioneering real-life 19th-century French neurologist Dr. Jean-Martin Charcot (Vincent Lindon) and a young, partially paralyzed teen patient suffering seizures (French singer Soko). Though he hypnotizes and manhandles her, and parades her in near-pornographic public demonstrations, the learned, married, repressed scientist eventually finds himself attracted to this poor, uninhibited kitchen maid.
