    Restless Creature

    September 10, 2017

    Documentary / 2017 / 90 minutes

    At the heart of Linda Saffire and Adam Schlesinger’s remarkable documentary Restless Creature: Wendy Whalen is the darkest question at every artist’s heart – what happens when they face the possibility of losing that which enables them to create? The subject here is legendary ballerina Wendy Whalen, remarkably still at the top of her game at the age of 45, after suffering an injury that may force her to retire from the prestigious New York City Ballet company. Told in vignettes that cover a wide swath of choreographers and performers as well as candid interviews with Whalen herself, Saffire and Schlesinger capture an honest portrait of an artist whose warmth and poise in the face of adversity is matched only by the stunning elegance of her dancing. A must see for dance enthusiasts or anyone who covets a glimpse into the divine spark.

    Person To Person

    September 10, 2017

    Drama / 2017 / 84 minutes

    Dustin Guy Defa’s love-letter to New York arrives in the form of Person to Person, an indie charmer that masterfully balances satire and sincerity, as authentic and varied as the city and the people who inhabit it. A loose narrative that weaves in and out of several sets of stories – one of which involves Michael Cera and Abbi Jacobsen as detectives trying to solve a murder – the film is really an exercise in character interplay, taking a cue from masters like Robert Altman and Paul Thomas Anderson, with the light touch of Woody Allen at his comedic height. Defa’s cast rise ably to the challenge, crafting characters that are immediately recognizable and relatable even outside of the Big Apple, and the film’s 16mm photography is given an air of vintage authenticity by a crackling soundtrack of R&B, funk and gospel tracks.
