South Korea, United States | 2017 | Bong Joon Ho

The latest film from the director of Snowpiercer and The Host was one of the most acclaimed and talked about movies at Cannes this year.

A VERY SORDID WEDDING

United States | 2017 | Del Shores

Del Shores’ outrageous sequel to his Sordid Lives (a 2000 “black comedy about white trash” that became one of the Cinematheque’s biggest hits) returns to the small Bible Belt town of Winters, Texas. There conservative Southern Baptists continue to clash with local homosexuals, this time over the issue of an impending gay marriage (and an interracial one at that!).

COLUMBUS

United States | 2017 | Kogonada

Columbus, Indiana, is known for its concentration of modernist buildings by Eero Saarinen, I.M. Pei, Robert Venturi, César Pelli, and others. This architectural mecca is the setting for this tender, low-key indie drama, the first feature by celebrated video essayist Kogonada and one of the most acclaimed movies of the year. (Cinematheque patrons loved it when we first showed it a little over a month ago.) The film follows two people—a disenchanted Korean-American man (John...

GOOK

United States | 2017 | Justin Chon

Don’t be put off by the confrontational title. Gook is a good-natured film that looks at the 1992 L.A. Riots through Asian American eyes. It focuses on two Korean American brothers who are trying to keep their family-owned, inner-city shoe store afloat, and on an 11-year-old African American girl who hangs out there. Gentle and even goofy at times, this low-budget b&w gem, a Sundance prizewinner, evokes such indie landmarks as Clerks and Do the...

New 4K Digital Restoration! Grand Passions: Five Films by Luchino Visconti

ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS

France, Italy | 1960 | Luchino Visconti

Martin Scorsese calls this epic Italian tale of passion, jealousy, and betrayal “Visconti’s masterpiece.” Alain Delon, Renato Salvatore, Annie Girardot, and Claudia Cardinale star in the sumptuous drama, about a farmer’s widow and four of her sons who leave poverty-stricken southern Italy to join a fifth son in urban Milan, hoping for a better life.

France, Italy, Switzerland | 2016 | Yuri Ancarani

A fabulous, exotic world of leisure and luxury is captured in this visually stunning, largely wordless new documentary by Italian artist Yuri Ancarani. Ancarani trains his widescreen camera on a group of wealthy young Arab men who converge in the Qatari desert for a weekend of r&r. The young sheikhs’ activities include racing SUV’s across sand dunes and a falconry competition. Among their lavish accoutrements are birds that can cost $24,000 apiece, custom-built sports cars,...

Centennial of the Russian Revolution! Digital Restoration from Europe!

OCTOBER: TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD

USSR | 1928 | Sergei Eisenstein, Grigori Aleksandrov

Statues are razed, palaces stormed, and governments toppled in Eisenstein’s masterful follow-up to Potemkin—a ten-years-after re-creation of the Bolshevik Revolution. This dazzling and innovative work ran into political censorship in the USSR (references to Trotsky had to be removed) and prompted the first official charges of “formalism” (being too arty and elitist) against the great director. Digital restoration from the Filmmuseum München, Germany; special thanks to Stafanie Hausmann. Thanks also to Deborah Girdwood, Walker Art...

Film Classics in 35mm! Jerry Lewis, 1926-2017

THE ERRAND BOY

United States | 1961 | Jerry Lewis

Jerry Lewis’ third film as a director (made between The Ladies’ Man and The Nutty Professor) is one of his funniest. Lewis plays a clueless paperhanger who is hired by Paramutual Pictures to spy on studio employees and ferret out wastefulness and sloth. But his backlot bumblings wreak havoc everywhere he goes.
