THE STRAIGHT STORY

France, United Kingdom, United States | 1999 | David Lynch

David Lynch’s only G-rated feature (made between Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive) is one of his best and most acclaimed works. Based on a true story, it’s a surreal road movie in which Alvin Straight (Richard Farnsworth), an elderly man from Iowa, undertakes a 240-mile journey on a riding lawn mower to visit his estranged, ailing brother in Wisconsin (Harrry Dean Stanton) and make amends. With Sissy Spacek; music by Angelo Badalamenti. 112 min.

OBIT.

United States | 2016 | Vanessa Gould

How do you summarize a person’s entire life in a few hundred words—and do it on deadline? That’s the unique challenge facing the skilled (and widely read) writers on the New York Times obituary desk, which is the subject of this fascinating—and surprisingly funny—new documentary. Reveals how subjects are chosen, how death notices are placed, and who warrants tightly guarded “advance obits.” “An enjoyable behind-the-scenes look at one of journalism's odder jobs…Engaging and lively.” –Hollywood...

CITIZEN JANE: BATTLE FOR THE CITY

United States | 2016 | Matt Tyrnauer

Journalist and urban activist Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was the author of the seminal 1961 book The Death and Life of Great American Cities. The visionary Jacobsperceived the vitality and diversity of life in America’s urban neighborhoods at a time when most city planners (like New York’s “master builder” Robert Moses) saw only unsightly slums that needed to be razed and then replaced with sterile planned communities of monolithic high rises. During the early 1960s, Jacobs...

Two twentysomething Polish men, unfettered by responsibilities or thoughts of mortality, choose to experience life at its fullest—roaming the city at night, floating from encounter to encounter, chain-smoking, drinking, and partying with only instinct and desire as their guides. This immersive, intoxicatingly shot paean to youth is almost pure sensation, and won a “best director” prize at Sundance. “A Dionysian revel slowly devolving into a desperation-tinged dance of death.” –Artforum.
