NYC Weekend Watch: ‘Happy Together,’ ‘The Terrorizers,’ Lucio Fulci, ‘Tampopo’ & More

21 October 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.


“Queer ’90s” comes to an end with the likes of Wong Kar-wai‘s Happy Together on Friday, and Thelma and Louise on Sunday. Marketa Lazarova and Northern Lights also play this Sunday, as does a restored print of ’30s horror picture Double Door.

A print of the interracial-relationship drama One Potato, Two Potato has started a run. »

The Seven Greatest Director/Actor Combos

4 September 2016 5:47 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Some actors and directors go together like spaghetti and meatballs. They just gel together in a rare way that makes their collaborations special. Here is a list of the seven best parings of director and actor in film history.


7: Tim Burton & Johnny Depp:

 Edward Scissorhands; Ed Wood; Sleepy Hollow; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; Corpse Bride; Sweeney Todd; Alice in Wonderland; Dark Shadows

 Of all the parings on this list, these two make the oddest films. (In a good way.) Tim Burton is one of the most visually imaginative filmmakers of his generation and Johnny Depp was once the polymorphous master of playing a wide variety of eccentric characters. They were a natural combo. Depp made most of his best films with Burton, before his current ‘Jack Sparrow’ period began. The duo had the knack for telling stories about misfits and freaks, yet making them seem sympathetic and likable. »

Cows Aren’t Built to Swim: Kelly Reichardt’s Essays on the Unvoiced

11 August 2016 6:37 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Mubi is showing Kelly Reichardt's newly restored debut River of Grass (1994) globally August 5 - September 3, 2016. In the United States and United Kingdom, more films by the director are also playing.“You meeting someone here tonight, Cozy?”“Nah, I just had the urge to get out.”“Yeah? I had the urge to drink. So it’s fate.”— Lee and Cozy, River of Grass “The wind’s not gonna be kind tonight.”— Solomon Tetherow, Meek’s Cutoff Kelly Reichardt’s is a cinema of misfits and margins. Of survival and getting by. In her debut feature, River of Grass (1994), a romantic naïf and her drifter boyfriend go on the run for a crime they’re convinced they’ve committed. In Old Joy (2006), a contentedly married man and soon-to-be father agrees to a road trip with an old pal, only to realize that the two are on divergent paths: the latter, frustrated by everyday pressures, »

Criterion Reflections – Zatoichi and the Fugitives (1968) – #679

17 July 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

David’s Quick Take for the tl;dr Media Consumer:

Zatoichi and the Fugitives, the 18th installment in the series, is pretty solid overall, a well-made and swiftly paced action-adventure that adheres pretty closely to the standard Zatoichi formula. Once again, the ever-wandering blind swordsman gets drawn into a cruelly unbalanced conflict between merciless criminals and honest village folk who are just trying to trudge a path through life that keeps their suffering to a minimum. If allowed to pursue their brutal agenda without interference, the bosses will grind their subordinates into the dust and inflict a lot of personal anguish upon them through various acts of robbery and exploitation. Zatoichi recognizes the bestial nature of the men in charge and reluctantly takes it upon himself to defend the weak and vulnerable. I like these stories because of their relatively pure and straightforward approach to the heroic formula. That’s »

Watching the Documentary Finalists: Part 1 - Other People's Lives

6 January 2016 8:11 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here looking at each of the 15 films on the Academy’s documentary finalists which, five of which will be shortlisted for nominations on January 14th

The documentary finalist list announced last month does us a small bit of good.  While it was sad to see such excellent feats of non-fiction filmmaking as The Pearl Button, In Jackson Heights, Sherpa and Stray Dog (to name just a few) removed from contention, reducing the astronomically long submission list of 124 down to a more manageable 15 titles does help us out dramatically in being able to not only get a grasp on the category for 2015, but also to give us a sample of what the Academy’s doc branch thought of the documentaries of any given year beyond the five eventual nominees. This year’s finalist list has its regular faces, but wasn't entirely devoid of surprises and many of the year’s »
