Cleveland premiere!

HITLER'S HOLLYWOOD

Germany | 2017 | Rüdiger Suchsland

This new documentary suggests that the Third Reich was essentially an immersive movie starring the German nation, produced and directed by Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. It supports this thesis with a wealth of film clips selected from the more than 1000 feature films the Nazis produced between 1933 and 1945—musicals, melodramas, romances, costume dramas, and war films, some of them insanely lavish. With Hans Albers, Zarah Leander, et al. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 105 min.

A STORY FROM CHIKAMATSU

Japan | 1954 | Kenji Mizoguchi

Kenji Mizoguchi’s exquisite, heartbreaking adaptation of a 17th-century puppet theater play by Chikamatsu Monzaemon (Japan’s Shakespeare) tells of two illicit lovers who flee their wrathful society, but later return to face the music. Masterfully photographed by Kazuo Miyagawa; one of the great director’s best films. Subtitles. DCP. 102 min.

A Special Event! Film Classics in 35mm! Rare Hitchcock!

MR. AND MRS. SMITH

United States | 1941 | Alfred Hitchcock

A rarely shown outlier in Alfred Hitchcock’s filmography (since it’s not a thriller), this delightfully screwball romantic comedy stars Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery as a quarrelsome couple who discover that their three-year marriage isn’t legal. Will they make it right or just call the whole thing off? Not to be confused with the 2005 Brangelina movie, which is not a remake. “An underrated, endearing farce…Inspired performances and crackling dialogue.” –VideoHound’s Golden Movie Retriever. 35mm....

THE GREEN FOG

Canada | 2017 | Evan Johnson, Galen Johnson, Guy Maddin

Movie mash-up magician Guy Maddin and his Forbidden Room collaborators Evan and Galen Johnson riff on Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo in this dizzying, very funny compilation of scenes and images lifted from a panoply of films and TV shows shot in San Francisco over many decades. The Kronos Quartet plays Jacob Garchick’s original score. “An inspired goof…[Its] giddy fun will hold up through repeat viewings.” –Variety. DCP. 63 min.

WHERE IS KYRA?

United Kingdom, United States | 2017 | Andrew Dosunmu

Michelle Pfeiffer and Kiefer Sutherland star in the acclaimed new drama from the director of Mother of George. Pfeiffer is heartbreaking as a divorced, childless, jobless Brooklyn woman who lives with her elderly mother in a dingy one-bedroom apartment.

France | 2017 | Arnaud Desplechin

Marion Cotillard, Mathieu Amalric, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Louis Garrel star in the new film by Arnaud (My Sex Life, A Christmas Tale) Desplechin. (It opened last year’s Cannes Film Festival.)

DIABOLIQUE

France | 1955 | Henri-Georges Clouzot

Clouzot’s famous shocker was allegedly the favorite horror film of Psycho author Robert Bloch. Set in and around a French boarding school for boys, the movie focuses on the wife (Véra Clouzot) and mistress (Simone Signoret) of the school’s sadistic headmaster (Paul Meurisse) as they plot his murder.

LOVELESS

Russia | 2017 | Andrey Zvyagintsev

The masterful new film from the director of the Oscar-nominated Leviathan (2014) was one of the five movies nominated for this year’s Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. (It won France’s César Award for Best Foreign Film.) The movie opens on a 12-year-old Russian boy who lives at home, mostly ignored by his self-centered parents who are embroiled in an ugly divorce. But when he disappears one day, a wide-ranging search ensues. Subtitles. DCP....

GEMINI

United States | 2017 | Aaron Katz

Aaron (Land Ho!) Katz’s latest and most accomplished film is an L.A.-set neo-noir that evokes both Raymond Chandler and Mulholland Drive. Jill (Lola Kirke), the personal assistant and possible BFF to a Hollywood starlet (Zoë Kravitz), is stunned when she is suddenly implicated in a murder involving her boss. Jill dons a disguise, evades the police, and launches her own investigation. “Nearly perfect, with ample heart, humor and tragedy-tinged humanity.” –Salon. DCP. 93 min. Preceded...

HALF A LIFE

France | 1982 | Romain Goupil

Perhaps the best film about the May 1968 left-wing uprising in Paris (and its dispiriting aftermath), Romain Goupil’s autobiographical documentary draws upon his own ample you-are-there film footage, shot over 12 years as events unfolded. Goupil intercuts this old footage with newer material to pay tribute to his friend and fellow revolutionary Michel Recanati, a militant leader who went missing and eventually committed suicide. This winner of the Caméra d’Or at the 1982 Cannes...

GODARD MON AMOUR

France | 2017 | Michel Hazanavicius

Jean-Luc Godard is depicted as both a pill and something of a buffoon in this blasphemous (if you worship JLG) but very entertaining new film from the director of The Artist and the OSS 117 movies. Set during the great director’s strident, late 1960s “Maoist” phase, the movie stars Louis Garrel as JLG and Stacy Martin as actress Anne Wiazemsky (La Chinoise), Godard’s muse and young wife. This stylish, colorful film, based on Wiazemsky’s autobiographical...

LE CORBEAU (THE RAVEN)

France | 1943 | Henri-Georges Clouzot

Made during the Nazi Occupation of France and condemned by many as anti-French German propaganda (it was banned for two years after the Liberation), Clouzot’s wartime thriller chronicles how residents of a small French town are terrorized by poison pen letters written by someone who knows all their dirty secrets. The missives are signed by “The Raven”—but who is it? With Pierre Fresnay. “As brilliantly nasty as Wages of Fear and Diabolique or indeed anything...

THE RITE

Sweden | 1969 | Ingmar Bergman

Today would have been Ingmar Bergman’s 100th birthday. To commemorate the occasion, we show a rarity by the great director that is available in this country only on film. The Rite was Bergman’s first movie made specifically for television (but it was also released to theaters).

GRACE JONES: BLOODLIGHT AND BAMI

Ireland, United Kingdom | 2017 | Sophie Fiennes

Grace Jones, the imperious glam-pop diva, fashion model, and cultural icon, is captured in perpetual motion in this globe-trotting profile that ranges from Paris to Jones’ native Jamaica. Features electrifying concert footage. “Bloodlight “ is Jamaican patois for the red light of the recording studio; “bami” is the bread of life. “Critics’ Pick…A feat of portraiture and a restoration of humanity. It’s got the uncanny, the sublime, and, in many spots, a combination of both.”...

BECOMING WHO I WAS

South Korea | 2017 | Jeon Jin, Moon Chang-Yong

Shot over eight years, this crowd-pleasing new documentary introduces us to a North Indian boy who has been identified as a Rinpoche (a reincarnated Tibetan Buddhist lama) but who faces many geographical, political, and financial obstacles before he and his teacher/godfather can journey to his “home” monastery in Tibet. “A charmingly intimate portrait that ultimately assumes epic-journey proportions.” –Variety.

Set in 1964 Paris, the movie tells of American writer James Lord (Armie Hammer), who is asked by the artist to sit for a portrait that should take only a day or two to create. But these sessions stretch into weeks of unexpected, often humorous chaos and frustration. With Tony Shalhoub and Sylvie...

Clouzot’s vividly sleazy, masterful whodunit revolves around the murder of a lecherous film producer (Charles Dullin, “the dirtiest old man on celluloid,” according to film historian David Shipman). The main suspects are two married music hall performers—sexy Jenny Lamour (Suzy Delair), who had gone to visit the businessman, and her jealous husband (Bernard Blier), who once vowed to kill him.

This new French rape-revenge drama is truly a horror film for our Time’s Up/#MeToo era. Written and directed by a female making her feature debut, it tells of an L.A. woman who joins her older married boyfriend, and later his two hunting buddies, for a romp at his remote desert outpost.

United States | 1971 | Melvin Van Peebles

Here’s a new restoration of the seminal movie that helped launch the whole blaxploitation craze, though it’s more of an independent art film than an exploitation movie. Melvin Van Peebles produced, wrote, directed, edited, scored, and starred in this angry, blistering, hallucinatory tale of a stud on the run after being accused of killing two corrupt cops. It’s dedicated “to all the Brothers and Sisters who have had enough of The Man.” No one under...
