THE CAPTAIN

Germany | 2017 | Robert Schwentke

This chilling wartime parable is set in the final days of WWII. A young deserter from the German army, on the run from his compatriots, finds the abandoned uniform of a Nazi captain. Donning the clothes and assuming the officer’s identity, this hunted fugitive suddenly acquires the status of ruthless executioner. This “remarkable film” (Variety) is handsomely composed and stylishly shot in crisp b&w scope. “[Presents] Naziism as a communicable disease that smothers conscience,...

France, Iran, United States | 2018 | Orson Welles

The film event of the century! Begun almost 50 years ago and shot off and on over a period of seven years, the final feature by Orson Welles languished unedited, inaccessible, for four decades. In 2016, Netflix stepped in to bankroll the completion of the film by an all-star team that included producer Frank Marshall and director Peter Bogdanovich, one of the movie’s stars.

CASQUE D’OR

France | 1952 | Jacques Becker

This rarely shown Jacques Becker masterpiece was recently voted one of the 100 best movies of all time in a poll of French film critics and historians conducted by Cahiers du Cinéma magazine. A supremely sensual Simone Signoret plays “Golden Marie,” a gangster’s moll in 1898 Paris who lures an honest carpenter into her world of pimps, prostitutes, and petty crooks—with tragic results. “One of the most physically beautiful and sensuous films ever made.” –Leonard...

SUPPORT THE GIRLS

United States | 2018 | Andrew Bujalski

Regina Hall and Haley Lu Richardson (Columbus) star in the new indie comedy from the director of Computer Chess and Funny Ha Ha. It’s one of the best reviewed American movies of 2018—a charming, empathetic look at the often chaotic life within a Hooters-style sports bar. There male customers ogle and bother the wait staff while the establishment’s manager treats her employees like family. “An easygoing hangout film that will ring true for anyone who...

1945

Hungary | 2017 | Ferenc Török

On a summer day in 1945, after the end of WWII, an Orthodox man and his grown son return to their Hungarian village with a horse-drawn cart. Their presence sparks fear and unease among the locals, some of whom own property that once belonged to Jews who were deported during the war. This acclaimed drama evokes both Béla Tarr’s Sátántangó and Fred Zinnemann’s High Noon in its beautifully spare b&w cinematography and quiet, pregnant mood....

Orson Welles’ bravura account of the ascent and decline of a mysterious newspaper tycoon (loosely modeled on William Randolph Hearst) was, for decades, voted the greatest movie ever made in various polls of film critics and filmmakers. Roger Ebert also regarded Kane as history’s best film, as well as his all-time favorite movie.

ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT

United States | 1930 | Lewis Milestone

We mark the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day with one of the greatest of all First World War movies, winner of the 1930 Oscar for Best Picture and Best Director. Lew Ayres plays a German schoolboy whose heroic notions of nationalism and fighting are soon dispelled by the horrible realities of trench warfare. Though based on a German novel by Erich Maria Remarque, the film was banned in Deutschland by Hitler and the Nazis. DCP....

THE WILD BOYS

France | 2017 | Bertrand Mandico

After they commit a brutal sex crime, five entitled teenage boys attending an elite boarding school early in the 20th century are shipped off to a lush tropical island for both re-education and metamorphosis. This singular, sensuous drama is both a gender-fluid Lord of the Flies (the boys are played by girls) and a perverse dress-up party evoking the films of Jack Smith, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Todd Haynes, Guy Maddin, and Raúl Ruiz. “Turns the...

A young man from the provinces moves to Paris to study film. Like all French film students, he smokes, drinks coffee, reads, navigates romantic relationships, and argues about movies, philosophy, and politics on his way to “finding” himself. “Brings to mind how some of the best French movies--especially those of the New Wave—are marked by both an intense love of film and the fiery passions of youth.” –Hollywood Reporter.

THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS

United States | 1942 | Orson Welles

Some critics consider Orson Welles’ second film superior to his debut, Citizen Kane (see 11/9 at 7:00). Which is saying a lot because Kane is a great film and Ambersons was mutilated by the studio. (More than an hour of footage was cut, and Welles’ original ending was re-shot and changed; all of it is lost forever.) But what remains is sublime: a lyrical and poignant chronicle of the decline of a wealthy Indianapolis family...

“Becker’s most perfectly crafted work” (Time Out Film Guide) was also his final film. Le Trou is a gripping suspense classic about four long-time French prisoners—and a newly arrived fifth—who attempt to break out of jail by digging a tunnel into Paris’ sewer system. The cast’s non-professional actors include one who took part in the 1947 incident that inspired the movie. “A masterpiece...and I weigh my words carefully: the greatest French film of all...

PAPER SHADOWS

United States | 2018 | Robert C. Banks, Jr.

The long-awaited feature debut of Cleveland-based experimental filmmaker and artist Robert C. Banks, Jr. is both a trippy, cinematic, b&w tear-sheet collage and a manifesto of urban Midwestern angst. Unlike most recent films about the North Coast rustbelt, this film is a love letter to the gritty underground cinema of the 1960s and 1970s. It features a variety of characters—from an angry elderly black man with a Don Quixote complex and his tarot card-reading...

United Kingdom | 1988 | Terence Davies

Terence Davies’ first feature was voted the third greatest British film of all time in a 2011 poll conducted by Time Out magazine. It’s a unique, poetic, semi-autobiographical portrait of working-class family life in Liverpool during the 1940s and 1950s. Evocative, dream-like sequences illustrate how harsh realities were mitigated by pop songs, Technicolor fantasies from Hollywood, and visits to the local pub. With Pete Postlethwaite.

But national politics has not brought him to this red state; he’s more interested in the people, their way of life, their rituals and institutions (churches, clubs), and their values (duty, service, generosity). The result is another one of Wiseman’s patented patient and poetic portraits of life...
