    The Leopard 35mm

    May 29, 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.

    Diane

    May 29, 2019

    Drama / 2019 / 95 minutes

    Mary Kay Place has long been an underrated treasure of an actress, so it's gratifying to see her land a role as rich and well-drawn as in Kent Jones' compelling new indie drama Diane. Set in rural Massachusetts, Jones' film concerns the life of an older woman (Place, in the titular role) who selflessly puts her own needs in front of a host of others – including working at a soup kitchen, attending to cancer-suffering cousin and trying to help her dug addicted son – in order to avoid the past that haunts her and threatens to pull the rug out from under her carefully ordered martyr's routine. Place of course is fantastic – she wears the character like a glove, fully inhabiting her role while deftly revealing layers as the story runs its melancholy course – and Jones utilizes his documentarian instincts to brilliantly capture the quiet desperation of aging out as a member of the forgotten working class. With Jake Lacy, Andrea Martin, Estelle Parsons and Deidre O'Connell.

    Sauvage

    May 30, 2019

    Drama / 2019 / 99 minutes

    Since Midnight Cowboy the lives of street hustlers has made for deeply compelling cinema, and French filmmaker Camille Vidal-Naquet adds another exemplary film to the canon with his critically lauded new film Sauvage (aka Wild). The story of a male prostitute (Felix Maritaud, in a performance that is being cited as one of the years’ best) who traffics in sex, drugs and even love on the streets of Strasbourg France, Vidal-Naquet’s film operates on multiple levels; part fly-on-the-wall observation, part warped love story, part psychological study, the writer-director deftly weaves all these elements into a near-perfect encapsulation of the wounded life of a modern-day sex worker and the deep-seated longing that so often drives them. Vidal-Naquet’s extensive time researching the subject is clearly evident in the extraordinarily well-executed film, and Maritaud – proving that his promising debut in BPM was no mere fluke – is nothing short of revelatory.
