Commoner impersonates Korean king in sumptuous period piece MASQUERADE
MASQUERADE, the third highest grossing movie in South Korean film history, is a sumptuous period piece starring Asian superstar Lee Byung-hun (THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD). Evoking KAGESMUSHA and DAVE, the movie tells of an unpopular 17th-century king who hires a comic-actor commoner to impersonate him wherever there might be an assassination attempt. See it in a 35mm color & scope print on Saturday or Sunday. Here's the teaser trailer.

"Psycho" expert Phil Skerry discusses HITCHCOCK, about making of '60 shocker
A portly Anthony Hopkins portrays Alfred Hitchcock in Sacha Gervasi's new film about the making of PSYCHO, HITCHCOCK. It’s a very entertaining movie, but is it accurate? On Thursday and Friday Phil Skerry, professor emeritus at Lakeland Community College and northeast Ohio’s foremost Hitchcock expert (he published his own book on the 1960 shocker, Psycho in the Shower: The History of Cinema’s Most Famous Scene, a few years ago), will weigh in when he introduces the movie and leads a post-film discussion after both screenings. With Helen Mirren as Hitch’s wife Alma and Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh. Gervasi previously directed ANVIL: THE STORY OF ANVIL.

THE TOPP TWINS will delight you
The 2009 New Zealand film THE TOPP TWINS: UNTOUCHABLE GIRLS is a hugely popular crowd-pleaser that has won over audiences Down Under, in North America, and everywhere it has played. The film profiles two unlikely celebrities, Jools and Lynda Topp, fiftysomething butch lesbians and Kiwi twin sisters who make their living as comedic country-and-western singers who yodel. They also promote progressive political causes. The talent and joie de vivre that have endeared the Topps to their countrymen for decades are well captured in this infectious portrait that won the People’s Choice Award for Best Documentary at the Toronto Int’l Film Festival. Catch its Cleveland theatrical premiere on Saturday or Sunday. Watch the trailer here.

Isabelle Huppert stars in Michael Haneke's chilling TIME OF THE WOLF
Isabelle Huppert stars in the 2003 French/Austrian drama TIME OF THE WOLF, an end-of-the-world tale from Michael Haneke, director of AMOUR, THE WHITE RIBBON, and CACHE. It’s a disaster film devoid of Hollywood heroes and special effects in which an affluent French woman and her two children try to survive in a post-apocalyptic world with no electricity and serious shortages of food and water. Haneke paints a dark, nightmarish portrait of the barbarism that lurks beneath the fragile surface of civilization. See it in 35mm on Thursday or Friday. Print this email and present it at the box office and pay only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out)

New hippies learn from old one in post-apocalyptic fable GLEN AND RANDA
Originally rated X for its ample nudity, the forgotten 1971 futuristic fantasy GLEN AND RANDA (from Jim McBride, director of DAVID HOLZMAN'S DIARY and THE BIG EASY) tells of two long-haired teenagers who look like 1960s hippies but are actually inhabitants of a post-apocalyptic world a few decades after Woodstock. (In other words, it takes place around now). Glen and Randa leave their rural tribe and set off in search of a great city that they have seen pictured in the lost civilization’s surviving manuscripts (i.e., comic books). Their singular odyssey takes them through the rubble and detritus of late 20th-century American society while an authentic hippie (now an old man) instructs them about the pop culture of his youth. See this rarity in a 35mm archive print on Saturday. It's for adults only. Here's the original trailer.

THE OTHER SON tells of Israeli and Palestinian switched at birth
In the new French drama THE OTHER SON, an Israeli Jewish couple and a Palestinian couple discover that their 18-year-old sons were accidentally switched at birth—and thus raised by “enemies.” This acclaimed, provocative drama skirts overt sentimentality to become a genuinely touching crowd-pleaser. Emmanuelle Devos co-stars in this film that shows on Sunday afternoon. The screening is co-presented by Cleveland Peace Action, whose members will lead a discussion after the movie. CPA members $7.

Cinematheque premieres restored Buñuel rarity TRISTANA at the Capitol Theatre
Catherine Deneuve, Fernando Rey, and Franco (DJANGO) Nero star in TRISTANA, a 1970 Luis Buñuel Spanish/French classic that has been unavailable in a good color print for at least three decades! But next Tuesday, March 12 we will show a glorious new digital restoration on the big screen at the Capitol Theatre, 1390 W. 65th Street. Set in Toledo (Spain) during the early 1930s, TRISTANA is a perverse black comedy about desire, death, and deformity in which a progressive-thinking old nobleman (Rey) lusts after his virginal, orphaned young ward (Deneuve), whom he is able to seduce but not possess. Buñuel, a lifelong surrealist and anarchist, is the director of UN CHIEN ANDALOU, BELLE DE JOUR, THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE, et al. No passes, twofers, or radio winners and no Cleveland Cinemas passes or discounts will be accepted for this special screening.

Isabelle Huppert comedy IN ANOTHER COUNTRY premieres at the Capitol
Isabelle Huppert stars in IN ANOTHER COUNTRY, the latest comedy from South Korean master Hong Sang-soo. The movie is set in a Korean coastal resort town and consists of three distinct episodes—each one starring Huppert as a different French visitor. (She plays a successful film director, a bourgeois housewife having an affair, and a divorced woman jilted by her husband.) Since Huppert’s character looks the same in each vignette, is always named “Anne,” and interacts with the same locals, the episodes unfold like variations on a theme. IN ANOTHER COUNTRY is both cerebral and laugh-out-loud funny, and was John Ewing's favorite film at last fall's Toronto Int'l Film Festival. The movie shows next Tuesday, March 12 at 9 pm on the big screen at the Capitol Theatre, 1390 W. 65th St. at Detroit Avenue. No passes, twofers, or radio winners and no Cleveland Cinemas passes or discounts will be accepted for this special show (but if you see TRISTANA at 7 pm, you can see this movie for only $6 more). Don't miss it!
