    The Red Shoes

    June 29, 2018

    Drama / 1948 / 133 minutes

    Michael Powell and Emmeric Pressburger’s The Red Shoes stands as one of the greatest ballet films of all time, as dazzling now as it was upon release in 1948. Built around the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, the celebrated British filmmakers present the story in eye-popping Technicolor, deploying a full arsenal of old school in-camera techniques to the fantastical dance sequences, resulting in some of the most indelible images ever seen on film. In casting dancers who could act rather than what would have traditionally been the reverse, the film’s 15 minute centerpiece has the high standard of a legitimate ballet company, with lead Moira Shearer proving herself a top-tier prima ballerina. After being picked up by an American distributor the film went on to be the highest grossing British film, won well-deserved Academy Awards for Best Original Score (Brian Easdale) and Best Art Direction (Hein Heckroth and Arthur Lawson), and inspired a small wave of Hollywood ballet films.

    American Animals

    June 29, 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.
