    Teen Spirit

    May 31, 2019

    Drama / 2019 / 93 minutes

    Moviegoers love a good underdog story as well as a rock n’ roll fable; writer-director Max Minghella delivers both with his new film Teen Spirit, a filmic confection that promises to be one of this year’s sleeper delights. In what is being called an enjoyable cross between The Karate Kid and A Star is Born, Minghella’s film charts the journey of a bullied Polish immigrant teen living in Britain (Elle Fanning) as she beats the odds by advancing, against far more seasoned competition, in a cutthroat TV singer search. Rapidly proving herself to be one of the most sympathetic and charismatic actors of her generation, Fanning is ideally cast as the embattled but winning young lead, and Minghella – son of celebrated late filmmaker Anthony Minghella and a gifted actor in his own right – shows a stylish flair for pop filmmaking that will surely further his directorial aspirations. With Angnieszka Grochowska, Zlatko Buric and Rebecca Hall.

    The Lost Boys (35mm) with Bottleneck Gallery

    May 31, 2019

    Horror / 1987 / 97 minutes

    Before the popularity of Twilight or the Anne Rice Lestat novels, Joel Schumacher was making vampires sexy with his seminal rock n’ roll horror romp The Lost Boys. Like the Peter Pan gang referenced in the title, these boys never grow up – so what if they grow fangs and drink a little blood in between cruising the boardwalk and racing motorcycles? Schumacher brings tons of style and playfulness to the wildly fun proceedings, creating a beachfront carnival world (a barely altered Santa Cruz) that pulses to the beat of 80s goth/synth rock and hot nubile bodies. Starring a who’s-who of notables including Jason Patrick, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Diane Wiest, Bernard Herman and Hughes and – best of all – the Coreys Feldman and Haim in their first turn as a tween heartthrob duo. Bottom line is that the movie is still a blast, a standard-setter for vampire coolness and a scare-ride fairy tale that never gets old.

    The Leopard 35mm

    May 30, 2019

    Period Drama / 1963 / 186 minutes

    Widely considered to be the summit of his career as one of the most visually gorgeous films ever made, Luchino Visconti’s The Leopard is a film that demands the big screen experience. Adapted from the novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, the sprawling historical period drama follows a 17th century Sicilian prince (Burt Lancaster in what is arguably his finest leading role) and his family during a tumultuous period of Italian unification, ending in an hour-long gala in which a host of political machinations reach their climax, a sequence that is often cited as one of the most spectacular in all of cinema history. Aside from breathtaking set design, exquisite filmmaking and flawless performances, Visconti’s epic is a masterful examination of the crumbling of an empire, a dazzling filmic achievement that handily took home the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 1963 and now stands as an undisputed masterpiece. With Alain Delon, Claudia Cardinale and Rina Morelli.

    A Bread Factory, Part 1: For the Sake of Gold

    May 26, 2019

    Comedy / 2019 / 122 minutes

    Presented in two feature-length parts, writer/director Patrick Wang's low-key "minimalist epic" A Bread Factory is being hailed by critics as one of the most enjoyable and surprising indie offerings of 2019. Set in a small town in New York state, the story centers around a community arts center situated in an old Bread Factory run by two seventy-something women (Tyne Daly and Elisabeth Henry) whose hippie era ideals have kept the center alive for 40 years but now face its takeover by a splashy, celebrity-backed theater company. Equal parts small town drama and ensemble comedy, Wang's exploration of the decline of the American community is somehow both modest and audacious in its ambitions, a testament to the necessity of art to the human experience presented in an affectionate, utterly compelling cinematic tapestry. Featuring a large cast that includes James Marsters, Nana Visitor and Glynnis O'Connor.

    Intro by director Patrick Wang prior to screening; Q&A following 9:15 pm screening of A Bread Factory Part Two.

    Exhibition

    May 25, 2019

    Drama / 2013 / 104 minutes

    Joanna Hogg turns her astute filmmaking eye towards the institution of marriage with 2013’s Exhibition, her third feature and another critically well received effort for the British auteur. Once again teaming with a now well-established Tom Hiddleston (albeit here in a supporting role), Hogg’s film focuses on a minimally named London-based artist couple (Liam Gillick, a conceptual artist and Viv Albertine, guitarist of legendary UK punk band the Slits) whose tenuous creative lives are threatened when they must put their modernist Chelsea house up for sale. As suggested by the title, Hogg uses the scenario to put her characters on probing emotional display as if they are trapped in one of their own art pieces, exploring the relationship between human beings and the spaces they occupy with a clinical, clear-eyed detachment. With Harry Kershaw and Mary Roscoe.

    High Life

    May 26, 2019

    Sci-Fi / 2019 / 113 minutes

    Considering how well the cruel unknowable vastness of outer space suits Claire Denis’ sensibilities, it’s a wonder the visionary auteur did not venture into the sci fi realm before her remarkable new film High Life. The story concerns the father (Robert Pattison) of an infant daughter who must unravel the mystery of why the crew of their Earth-fleeing space mission has disappeared as they hurdle towards the certain doom of a black hole; it’s the sort of dark, contemplative sci fi that occupies similar terrain as Tarkovsky’s Solaris, but with a focus on the anguish of love, intimacy, and the act of preservation even in the face of world-ending hopelessness. Not easily digestible genre faire – there are scenes of extreme sexual brutality – but fans of Denis’ work will find the soul-rending experience rewarding, and science fiction lovers owe themselves the pleasure of seeing a master operating in their favored milieu. With Juliette Binoche and Outkast’s Andre Benjamin.
