    The Witches (35mm)

    October 14, 2018

    Mystery / 1990 / 91 minutes

    Brit auteur Nicholas Roeg wouldn’t be the obvious choice to direct a dark fantasy-comedy based on a children’s novel, yet his 1990 adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Witches is a wildly enjoyable genre romp just the same. A collaboration with Jim Henson studios, the story concerns a vacationing young boy (Jasen Fisher) and his grandmother (Mia Zetterling) who run afoul of a coven of witches bent on ridding Britain of children by turning them into mice. Leading the coven is the inimitable Anjelica Huston, rising to the bar set by great cinematic witches in delivering a deliciously villainous performance, aided by the stellar creature work of the Henson group as well as a supporting cast of great British character actors such as Rowan Atkinson, Jane Horrocks and Brenda Blethyn. Despite Dahl’s dislike of the film and its lackluster box office reception, The Witches cast a warm spell over critics and now stands as a cult classic for lovers of darkly whimsical supernatural faire.

But it is now in decline and its inhabitants - mother, son and daughter - are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life.

    Antonio Lopez 1970: Sex Fashion & Disco

    October 28, 2018

    Documentary / 2018 / 95 minutes

    Sex Fashion & Disco is a feature documentary-based time capsule concerning Paris and New York between 1969 and 1973 and viewed through the eyes of Antonio Lopez (1943-1987), the dominant fashion illustrator of the time, and told through the lives of his colorful and sometimes outrageous milieu. A native of Puerto Rico and raised in The Bronx, Antonio was a seductive arbiter of style and glamour who, beginning in the 1960s, brought elements of the urban street and ethnicity to bear on a postwar fashion world desperate for change and diversity. Counted among Antonio’s discoveries—muses of the period—were unusual beauties such as Cathee Dahmen, Grace Jones, Pat Cleveland, Tina Chow, Jessica Lange, Jerry Hall and Warhol Superstars Donna Jordan, Jane Forth and Patti D’Arbanville among others. Antonio’s inner circle in New York during this period was also comprised of his personal and creative partner, Juan Ramos (1942-1995), also Puerto Rican-born and raised in Harlem, makeup artist Corey Tippin and photographer Bill Cunningham among others.
