Abbas Kiarostami's last film!

24 FRAMES

France, Iran | 2017 | Abbas Kiarostami

The final film by the late, great Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami is a series of two dozen single-shot short films, each four-and-a-half minutes long. These “frames” originate as static landscape paintings or Kiarostami’s own nature photographs, but digital technology animates animals or people in each tableau. Sound is added. The resulting studies, mini-stories, and vignettes range from the academic and the anecdotal to the poetic and the sublime. “Among [Kiarostami’s] finest, most uplifting works.” –Hollywood...

MELANCHOLIA

The film follows two sisters at a disastrous dusk-to-dawn wedding reception at a lavish estate.

CRIES AND WHISPERS

Sweden | 1973 | Ingmar Bergman

Ingmar Bergman’s painterly color film is an unforgettable dream play about a woman dying of cancer and the two sisters and servant who care for her. This is another Bergmanesque tale of suffering, confinement, and isolation, but with a heightened intensity and explicit (rather than implicit) sado-eroticism. With Harriet Andersson, Ingrid Thulin, Liv Ullmann, and Erland Josephson. Cinematography by Sven Nykvist. Adults only! Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 91 min.

ZAMA

Argentina | 2017 | Lucrecia Martel

An ineffectual functionary working for the Spanish crown in a remote, tropical colonialist outpost somewhere in South America during the 18th century waits in vain for a transfer to Buenos Aires or back home. The first film in nine years by Argentinean master Lucrecia Martel is dense, languorous, perplexing, comic, and intoxicating. It’s also one of the most rapturously received movies of the past year. From the novel by Antonio Di Benedetto. Subtitles. DCP. 115...

THE MAGICIAN

Sweden | 1958 | Ingmar Bergman

In 19th-century Stockholm, a traveling mesmerist and magician (Max von Sydow) runs afoul of a thoroughly rational, local medical examiner (Gunnar Björnstrand) who thinks he is a con man. A game of wits ensues. Ingmar Bergman’s gothic fable—part comedy, part horror film—is really an allegory about science and the supernatural. “Widely underrated…One of [Bergman’s] most genuinely enjoyable films.” –Time Out Film Guide. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 101 min.

THE INNER SCAR

France | 1972 | Philippe Garrel

Nico, Philippe Garrel, and a naked Pierre Clémenti star in Garrel’s hypnotic experimental feature, a cryptic collection of human figures (and at least one horse) in a series of stunningly photographed color landscapes. Filmed in remote regions of Iceland, Morocco, and Death Valley and filled with long, exquisite tracking shots, the film revels in the elements of earth, air, water, and fire by fixating on deserts, wind, and clouds. Nico sings the songs on the...
