    The Wizard Of Oz (35mm)

    June 23, 2018

    Musical / 1939 / 104 minutes

    Arguably the most iconic fantasy film of all time, the Victor Fleming (with the uncredited help of directors King Vidor and George Cukor) directed The Wizard of Oz still has the power to enthrall nearly 80 years since its 1939 release. Based on L. Frank Baum’s beloved book series, the MGM Technicolor production is a wonder of design and imagination; from the innovative costuming of the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, Munchkins, Wicked Witch of the West (and what child can forget the nightmare-inducing winged monkeys?), to the lush painted backdrops and wonderfully realized sets, Oz truly set the bar for fully-realized cinematic fantasy worlds. But it would all be for naught without the dazzling performances of Judy Garland (forever the iconic Dorothy), Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr and Margaret Hamilton, or the songs of Harold Arlen and Yip Harberg, many of which – “Over the Rainbow”, “We’re Off to See the Wizard”, “Ding-Dong the Witch is Dead” – are now firmly entrenched in our shared cultural playlist. An unassailable classic that demands to be seen on the big screen.

    BPM (Beats Per Minute)

    June 23, 2018

    Drama / 2017 / 140 minutes

    Based on his own experiences, Robin Campillo’s 2017 film BPM (Beats Per Minute) is a celebratory and defiant work that has garnered widespread critical praise, including the coveted Grand Prix at Cannes. Set in early 90s France, the story chronicles the LBGT activist group ACT UP as they hold debates and stage volatile protests against the government agencies and pharmaceutical companies failing to affect the growing AIDS crisis in a timely fashion, offsetting their impassioned crusade with hard-partying nights of clubbing, sex and romance. The youthful cast are uniformly brilliant – Nahuel Perez Biscayart is a standout as an HIV-positive veteran of the group who falls for an HIV-negative newcomer (a soulful Arnaud Valois) – and Campillo’s confidently intimate direction deftly contrasts the heartbreaking fallout of the epidemic with the triumph of love, human connection and battles well fought. With Adele Haenel and Ariel Borenstein.

    American Animals

    June 23, 2018

    Crime / 2018 / 116 minutes

    Judging from critical consensus, British documentarian Bart Layton’s first step into narrative filmmaking, American Animals, is an unqualified success. Based on a bizarre true story, Layton’s film chronicles a small group of friends, who, as a way of rebelling from their shared suburban Kentucky upbringing, plot to steal a priceless rare book from a nearby university that is guarded by a solitary middle-aged librarian (Ann Dowd). Heading the cast of wannabe crooks are Evan Peters (of X-Men and American Horror Story fame) and Barry Keoghan (Killing of a Sacred Deer) as the oddball “masterminds” of this highly questionable scheme, both delivering rich performances of considerable depth and quirk, perfectly capturing the disillusionment of modern American youth. Adding novelty are interviews with the real-life criminals themselves, an unexpected filmic choice that surprisingly pays off, giving the larger-than-life heist tale a sobering veracity. With Blake Jenner, Jared Abrahamson and Udo Keir.
