NYC Weekend Watch: ‘Love Streams,’ ‘Tanner ’88,’ ‘Medium Cool’ & More

22 July 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York 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.

Metrograph

The “Cassavetes/Rowlands” series ends on a real high note.

This Saturday, Dead Man plays with Jim Jarmusch and Chris Eyre in-person. It also screens on Sunday as part of “Native to America,” a series that brings the latter’s Smoke Signals on the same day.

Lucio Fulci‘s A Cat in the Brain screens on Saturday. »

New to Streaming: ‘Everybody Wants Some!!,’ ‘Fantastic Planet,’ ‘The Fundamentals of Caring,’ and More

24 June 2016 9:59 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Aferim! (Radu Jude)

Leave it to a Romanian director to make a movie that best expresses the dangers of the dyed-in-the-wool mindset of modern America. Culled partly from historical documents, Aferim! is a twisted history lesson whose messages transcend its insular time period of 19th-century Romania. Its story concerns Constable Costandin (Teodor Corban) and his son, Ionita (Mihai Comanoiu), who chase after a wanted Gypsy slave »

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

Embrace of the Serpent (Ciro Guerra)

With its focus on the effects of exploration by white men on foreign lands, Ciro Guerra’s Oscar-nominated Embrace of the Serpent will inevitably be compared to Werner Herzog’s stories of savage nature, and while Guerra is investigating some of Herzog’s most well trodden themes, the chaos of man exists in the background, while the unspoiled sit front and center here. Embrace of the Serpent centers on two explorers, separated by decades in time, »

Fantastic Planet – Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

12 June 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Deprived of lessons, I decided to run away.”

Fantastic Planet plays this weekend (June 17th and 18th) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.

I saw the 1973’s French/Czechoslovakian masterpiece Fantastic Planet at the Kirkwood Cinema when it was new. There was a string of adult animated movies in the early 1970’s, Ralph Bakshi et al, many of which have become perennial cult classics. Rene Laloux is the French director of Fantastic Planet and Roland Topor was the animator. The drawings, which were highly artistic and complex, payed tribute to Terry Gilliam, though not as humorous, the “head” styles of “Yellow Submarine,” and even to Bakshi himself, with the anthropomorphisms and even the occasional nudity.

Fantastic Planet is a story of one human “Om” (French for “man”) named Terr, who loses his mother in the beginning of the movie, is taken care by aliens who become his captors. He then escapes from his alien captor family known as “Traags” to a race of humans. With his device of intellectual “Traag” knowledge in his head, he passes that knowledge to the other Oms and frees them from the captivity of the merciless “Traags.”

But if you like animation that is “different,” you may appreciate Fantastic Planet which was a grand prize winner at the Cannes Film Festival and regularly played on USA’s “Night Flight” program 20 years ago (“Night Flight” program was a late-night cable show that specialized in rock videos and cult films). In age where directors can literally do and put anything on screen achieving the desired ‘wow’ factor has become an increasingly rare thing. Laloux didn’t have 3D or CGI at his disposal in 1971; just some extremely talent cartoon artists a seriously funky score and some extremely crazy ideas and today Fantastic Planet still manages to impress. While it may be easy to dismiss Fantastic Planet as some post Hippy movement nonsense complete with psychedelic imagery barely concealable political allegories and very much a product of its time it remains a compelling and indeed visionary oddity. Check out Fantastic Planet when it plays midnights this weekend at The Tivoli and see how fantastic it is.

Fantastic Planet screens this weekend (June 17th and 18th) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.

The Tivoli’s located at 6350 Delmar Blvd., University City, Mo. Admission is a mere $8!

June 24 and 25th:          Troll 2

July 1st and 2nd              Jaws

July 8th and 9th              Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (Miyazaki)

The Breakfast Club Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli

6 June 2016 7:56 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe? ”

The Breakfast Club plays this weekend (June 10th and 11th) at The Tivoli at midnight as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli midnight series.

In 1985, director/writer John Hughes crafted The Breakfast Club, his hilarious and surprisingly thoughtful tale that still seems as fresh as it did 30 years ago. Five teenagers, each representing a different clique in their high school, are forced to spend an entire Saturday in detention together for various infractions each has committed–some of which become central to the plot, as the characters gradually become aware that they share more in common with each other than their stereotypes and preconceived notions would ever allow.

There’s a minimalistic feel to the movie that helps maintain its focus on the characters; there are essentially only two other speaking parts of any significance outside of the five teens–the antagonistic school principal, »

The Tivoli Announces the ‘Reel Late’ Midnight Line-Up – Jaws, Troll 2, Miyazaki

30 May 2016 8:22 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“You’re gonna need a bigger boat!”

Another brilliant lineup of midnight movies for the ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ for the Summer of 2016 season. It’s a typically good variety of titles that will draw the late night movie buff crowd with a couple of retro surprises. The Midnight Movie experience has always catered to a college-age crowd and that’s the way it should be. Looks like we have no less than three animes (if you count Fantastic Planet as an anime) which is understandable since they always draw good crowds. The oldest film this time is the Hitchcock classic from 1954 Rear Window and the most recent is Troll 2 from 1990. The late night fun kicks off this weekend with a tribute to the recently departed Prince and his 1984 showcase Purple Rain.

Here’s the line-up:

June 3rd and 4th:         Purple Rain

June 10th and 11th:      Breakfast Club »

Inside the Greatest X-Rated Animated Film You've Never Heard Of

11 May 2016 9:36 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

At the 1973 Berlin Film Festival, overenthusiastic parents, eager to take their kids to a "family-friendly" animated film, crowded into a German theater for a recently released Japanese anime film with an unusual title: Belladonna of Sadness. They expected something that might distract their kids for 90 minutes, a sort of proto-My Neighbor Totoro; instead, they were treated to an opening scene that climaxes with a brutal prima nocta gang rape, a devil disguised as an impish phallus worming his way between the heroine's legs and, in between surreal orgy scenes, »

Criterion in June: Fantastic Planet, Dr. Strangelove, And More

17 March 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Stanley Kubrick's dark comedy Dr. Strangelove and René Laloux's animated dazzler Fantastic Planet lead Criterion's pack of releases for June 2016. The former features Peter Sellers in multiple roles and is a stellar offering from the early 1960s. Released some 10 years later, the latter title is a beautiful slab of science fiction and no less a political commentary. Other planned releases include Jean Renoir's La chienne (1931), Alexander Hall's Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941), Michelangelo Antonioni's Le amiche (1955), and Olivier Assayas' Clouds of Sils Maria (2014). They all represent different eras of cinema, and are all worthy of closer, extended consideration. Read onward for all the details from Criterion's prepared statement.

Long-Unavailable Japanese Animation ‘Belladonna of Sadness’ Returns In Trailer for Restoration

19 February 2016 10:41 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After decades of being neglected any true circulation within the United States, Eiichi Yamamoto‘s notorious animated feature Belladonna of Sadness (sometimes referred to as The Tragedy of Belladonna) will soon have its day in the sun. Cinelicious Pics are behind a new restoration that, on the basis of its 35mm-negative scan, looks rather beautiful, and whose supposed content immediately intrigues.

Described as “equal parts J.R.R. Tolkien and gorgeous, explicit Gustav Klimt-influenced eroticism,” its story of rape, revenge, witchcraft, and Satan makes for precisely the sort of cult item that’s bound for a major rediscovery — which is to say nothing of its innovative use of watercolor painting as a storytelling tool, here brought to a startlingly clear life. (And precisely the sort not made for children.) Step aside, Pixar — we have our most-anticipated animated film of the year.

‘Boy and the World’ Director Ale Abreu Discusses Animated Film’s Journey

5 January 2016 2:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brazilian filmmaker Ale Abreu’s hand-drawn “Boy and the World,” his second animated feature, follows a little boy who finds his happy rural existence shattered when his father has to find work in the big city. The character design is deceptively simple and the palette colorful, but the film grows darker both visually and emotionally as the boy ventures off in search of his father. The film has been picking up awards all over the world, including top prizes at the 2014 edition of Annecy, and is on the short list of potential Oscar nominees for animated feature. Variety recently talked with Abreu about his work.

How did you come up with the idea for “Boy and the World”?

I was doing research into the development of an animadoc (an animated documentary) about the early history of Latin America. And one day in one of my notebooks I found this character »
