    Egg

    January 22, 2019

    Comedy / 2019 / 90 minutes

    The long awaited feature follow-up to her indie debut Good Dick, director Marianna Palka – known primarily as a memorable side character on the hit Netflix show Glow – tackles the sticky subjects of motherhood, female friendship and marriage with her sharply astute and wickedly funny Egg. Working from a cracking script by Risa Mickenberg, Palka's second feature centers on a pair of old friends – one of whom is 8 months pregnant (Christina Hendricks) – and the increasingly tense evening they share when the other (Alysia Reiner) reveals her plan to get pregnant via surrogate (Anna Camp) as an art project. Hendricks and Reiner play off each other brilliantly, trading wonderfully calibrated passive hostilities until the inevitable eruption, illustrating through their impeccable dramatic and comedic chops how the looming threat of parenthood brings out personality flaws both hilarious and heartbreaking. With David Alan Basche and Gbenga Akinnagbe.

    Walkabout

    January 22, 2019

    Drama / 1971 / 100 minutes

    Cementing his reputation as an auteur with only his 2nd film, Nicholas Roeg's 1971 masterpiece Walkabout helped kickstart the Australian New Wave of cinema and stands as one of the great survival films of all time. Adapted from the James Vance Marshall novel, the story follows a pair of white, city-bred youths (Roeg's son Luc and future British film star Jenny Agutter, here only seventeen) who, after being left to die in the Australian outback by their suicidal father, are aided by a teenage Aboriginal boy (David Gupilil) who shows them how to live off of the brutal, untamed wilderness. Stunningly photographed by Roeg himself, this alternately severe and lyrical civilization vs nature odyssey wrangles with themes of colonialism, racial relations, sexual awakening and the complexities of human communication, tied beautifully together by the naturalistic performances of the youthful leads and Roeg’s keen emphasis on visual storytelling. With a score by the incomparable John Barry.

    The Man Who Fell To Earth

    January 24, 2019

    Drama / 1976 / 138 minutes

    It takes a director of great vision to translate David Bowie's iconic, otherworldly charisma effectively to screen, and it could be argued that it was never done better than in Nicholas Roeg's The Man Who Fell to Earth. A surreal sci fi epic that is every bit as enigmatic as its lead, Roeg's adaptation of the Walter Tevis novel follows the exploits of an extraterrestrial (Bowie, in his first onscreen role) who has crash-landed on Earth in a quest to find water for his dying world. Having recently portrayed an alien during his Ziggy Stardust album cycle, Bowie is an ideal fit for the material, casting a striking figure against Roeg's beautifully captured New Mexico locales and riveting the viewer to the screen in a way few performers ever could. Not to short-thrift Roeg's contribution; only in the hands of a great artistic intelligence does work so trippy and unconventional achieve such heights of sublime beauty, a finely-crafted tone poem about spiritual longing that feels as much a beautiful, ancient artifact as it does a piece of star-fallen ephemera. With Rip Torn and Candy Clark.
