MY JOURNEY THROUGH FRENCH CINEMA

France | 2016 | Bertrand Tavernier

Veteran French filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier, who was a passionate cinephile and film critic before he directed such movies as A Sunday in the Country and ‘Round Midnight, walks us through six decades of classic French cinema that moved him as a filmgoer and shaped him as an artist. Overflowing with anecdotes, insights, opinions, and clips, this exhilarating, very personal essay film (from a man who was once an assistant to Jean-Pierre Melville and a press...

STAGE FRIGHT

United Kingdom | 1950 | Alfred Hitchcock

Perhaps the rarest Hitchcock feature from the director’s greatest decade (the 1950s), this mystery/thriller (with lots of comic relief) tells of an aspiring actress (Jane Wyman) who uses her performing prowess to try to prove that a friend accused of murder is innocent of the crime. With Marlene Dietrich. 110 min.

THE QUEEN OF SPAIN

Spain | 2016 | Fernando Trueba

Penélope Cruz reunites with the director of the Oscar-winning Belle Epoque in this all-star farce about 1950s moviemaking in Franco’s Spain. Cruz plays a Spanish movie star who, after success in Hollywood, returns to Madrid to shoot a lavish American musical about Queen Isabella. But the production is beset with problems: the director (Clive Revill) is a drunk, the screenwriter (Mandy Patinkin) has been blacklisted, and the leading man (Cary Elwes) is both gay and...

IN TRANSIT

United States | 2015 | Albert Maysles, Lynn True, David Usui, Nelson Walker III, Benjamin Wu

The final film by the late, great documentarian Albert Maysles (Gimme Shelter, Grey Gardens) journeys into the hearts and minds of everyday passengers aboard Amtrak's Empire Builder, the busiest long-distance train route in America. The film unfolds as a series of interconnected vignettes, ranging from overheard conversations to moments of deep intimacy, in which diverse individuals in a fleeting community share their fears, hopes, and dreams. “A folk odyssey…A fitting farewell to an American ethnographer.”...

KÉKSZAKÁLLÚ

Argentina | 2016 | Gastón Solnicki

An assortment of privileged adolescent girls and young women contemplate, with trepidation, their upcoming entry into the adult world—thus leaving a materially comfortable cocoon. This acclaimed and impeccably realized new feature, loosely inspired by Béla Bartók’s opera Bluebeard’s Castle, uses abstraction and architecture to suggest subcultures and states of mind. “Immaculately composed…[A] rapturous experimental narrative.” –Variety. Subtitles. DCP. 72 min.

THE PRESTIGE

United Kingdom, United States | 2006 | Christopher Nolan

Prior to the release of Dunkirk, Indiewire proclaimed this twisty mystery-thriller Christopher Nolan’s best film. Made just before The Dark Knight and Inception, the movie details a deadly feud between two rival magicians and illusionists (Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale) in 1890s London. With Scarlett Johansson, Michael Caine, Rebecca Hall, Andy Serkis, and, as Nikola Tesla, David Bowie. Scope. 130 min.

LOST IN PARIS

Belgium, France | 2016 | Dominique Abel, Fiona Gordon

The husband-wife, actor-director team of Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon (The Fairy) carry on the longstanding French screen tradition of choreographed physical comedy and wordless clowning seen in the films of Jacques Tati, Pierre Etaix, et al. Lost in Paris, their fourth feature, is perhaps their funniest yet. Gordon plays a gangly Canadian librarian who makes her first trip to France in order to assist her 88-year-old Aunt Martha (the late Emmanuelle Riva). But when...

NO MAPS ON MY TAPS

United States | 1979 | George T. Nierenberg

Here’s a new digital restoration (from the original camera negative) of a joyous dance documentary that, almost 40 years ago, helped reawaken interest in the then dying art of tap. Three veteran hoofers—Bunny Briggs, Chuck Green, and Harold “Sandman” Sims—are profiled in this toe-tapping classic that also features music by Lionel Hampton. It will be followed by Nierenberg’s sequel, About Tap (1985), in which Gregory Hines appears with three different dancers. “The(se) films, which I...

THE DEATH OF LOUIS XIV

France, Portugal, Spain | 2016 | Albert Serra

French screen icon Jean-Pierre Léaud is the brilliant, fitting choice to star in this minimalist historical drama about the final days of France’s powerful Sun King—seen here as an ailing, all-too-mortal monarch surrounded by concerned doctors and counselors in his Versailles bed chamber. This one-of-a-kind work, a neglected candidate for best film of the year, is as serene and static as most movies are loud and busy. Subtitles. DCP. 115 min.

STALKER

Germany, USSR | 1979 | Andrei Tarkovsky

Tarkovsky’s spiritual classic—one of the great modern movies—is best seen in a theater. Set in some post-apocalyptic future, the film follows a guide with special powers (a “stalker”) as he leads a writer and a scientist into a fenced-off, forbidden region, known as the Zone, that is part primeval forest, part post-industrial wasteland. The three men trek toward the Zone’s mysterious inner sanctum (the “Room”), where one’s deepest desires are said to come true. Subtitles....

FUNERAL PARADE OF ROSES

Japan | 1969 | Toshio Matsumoto

Long unavailable in the U.S., this kaleidoscopic Japanese New Wave masterpiece is one of the most subversive and intoxicating films of the late 1960s: a headlong dive into a dazzling, unseen Tokyo night-world of drag queen bars and fabulous divas, fueled by booze, drugs, performance art, and black mascara. (Stanley Kubrick cited the film as a direct influence on A Clockwork Orange.) The film is set at Bar Genet, where the hot young “gay boy”...
