NYC Weekend Watch: Ryūsuke Hamaguchi, ‘Ms. 45,’ Brakhage & More

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.


Before Asako I & II opens next week, Ryūsuke Hamaguchi is given his first U.S. retrospective.

Djibril Diop Mambéty’s Touki Bouki follow-up Hyenas continues screening.

Lilya 4-Ever and Sidney Lumet’s King play on 35mm, while an Antonioni-Loach double-bill is presented by Rachel Kushner this Sunday.

Tribeca Film Review: ‘See You Yesterday’

  • Variety
Cinema and social commentary collide in entertaining and thought-provoking fashion in “See You Yesterday,” a mix of pop culture and true crime that feels tailor-made for a millennial Netflix audience. Stefon Bristol’s feature debut follows two African American Brooklyn teens as they try to use homemade time machines to undo a fatal police shooting — leading to an unforeseen set of calamitous new problems. With Eden Duncan-Smith’s stellar lead performance overshadowing some tonal uneasiness, the film should prove an appealing at-home option when it arrives on the streaming platform May 17.

Producer Spike Lee helped NYU student Bristol expand his short thesis film into full-length drama with a dynamic, lived-in depiction of East Flatbush that recalls Lee’s “Do the Right Thing.” That’s far from the only movie touchstone in “See You Yesterday,” as Bristol’s story begins with a cameo from “Back to the Future” star Michael J. Fox

Spy Kids Cast: Where Are They Now

An iconic piece of early aughts kid cinema, Spy Kids (2001) melded 007-style action with Robert Rodriguez’s cartoonish directing sensibility for a pint-sized espionage thriller that was butt-kicking fun for the whole family. Starring up-and-comers Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara as bickering siblings who discover that their parents are actually secret agents, Spy Kids was a bonafide box-office hit that is fondly remembered by an entire generation of kids and pre-teens. Though its success led to a profusion of sequels—the best of which, Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams came nipping at the first’s heels in 2002, and the worst of which, Spy Kids: All the Time in the World (which was released in "aromascope") came out in 2011—the first is inarguably the best in the series.

Just as spring is about sprung, Netflix has revealed its lineup of new content hitting the service in April — along with what movies and TV shows will no longer be available come next month.

April brings several originals to the streamer, including “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 2” (April 5), Kevin Hart’s first Netflix stand-up special (April 2), and interactive adventure series “You vs. Wild,” coming April 10.

Season 2 of “Sabrina” finds the heroine exploring her darker side, caught between a love triangle while trying to hold on to her mortal friendships. “Kevin Hart: Irresponsible” features the comedian entertaining a sold-out audience of 15,000 at London’s O2 Arena.

The Masked Singer: A Winner Has Been Crowned! Find Out Who Was Under the Masks All Along

The Masked Singer might be the most bonkers reality show that's been on TV for some time, but nevertheless, I couldn't help but find myself fascinated by the mystery of which celebrity was lurking behind each of those bizarre, nightmarish masks that look like rejected outfits from the Spy Kids costume department.

Hosted by Nick Cannon, the Fox reality competition series is the Us remake of the popular South Korean show King of Mask Singer. It began with 12 singing celebrities, with one being eliminated each week. The catch? Each of the contestants wears head-to-toe costumes, concealing every inch of their identities from not only the audience but also the panelists and other contestants. Panelists Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, and Robin Thicke receive small hints about who the singer might be over the course of the show, then try to guess their identities.

Review: Far From Heaven—Robert Rodriguez's "Alita: Battle Angel"

  • MUBI
The trailer for the forthcoming Captain Marvel, which precedes screenings of Alita: Battle Angel, contains eight match cuts depicting Captain Marvel falling to the ground and standing back up again at various moments from adolescence to adulthood as an Air Force cadet. As she rises, the word “her” appears, later completed to spell out “hero.” (Military news site Task and Purpose notes that the trailer is very similar to a 2017 recruitment video for the U.S. Marine Corps.) Solace and solidarity offered on a platter. The bait, however, is only a temporary comfort. Because the presumption that all women can be coalesced into a singular “her” is a very profitable commodity, it can only be rejected by abandoning and taking apart its foundation, the dream of personhood as a question of biological traits or lived experience. What makes a woman a woman? What—or really, who—makes a person a person?

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Review: A Cliche-Ridden Misfire

Alita: Battle Angel was supposed to be the must-see event film of the early year. This spectacle of technology and filmmaking, based off Yukito Kushiro's Gunnm, was going to revolutionize cinema forever. For almost 20 years, James Cameron has been teasing this popular manga adaptation, and the story of getting the film to the screen is, at times, more interesting than the film itself. Alita: Battle Angel is finally in theaters, now directed by Robert Rodriguez, off of a script by James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis, and the wait was definitely not worth it.

Science Fiction has officially passed James Cameron by. There's no other way to say it. While his Avatar made a gazillion dollars at the box office, it was critically bereft of any creativity, and was a rehash of tired old ideas; it was essentially a lazy exercise in "same, but different" screenwriting. Alita: Battle Angel follows that same pattern.

All 18 Robert Rodriguez Movies Ranked, From Worst to Best (Photos)
Robert Rodriguez has come a long way from his micro-budget breakout feature — a landmark of American independent cinema — in terms of scope and technology, but his interest in genre storytelling and satirical sensibilities have prevailed regardless of the resources at his disposal. The Mexican-American director has dabbled in ultra-violent homages to B-movies, family-friendly adventures, and graphic novel adaptations, as well as their respective and numerous sequels. Results vary in success, but his movie-loving imprint is always indelible. Are his films better when working with untested material and less financial certainty? A look at his filmography might reveal the answer:

18. “Four Rooms” (1995)

In an atrocious performance as a neurotic bellhop, Tim Roth binds together the quartet of farcical hotel-set short stories that form this ill-conceived anthology. Rodriguez’s segment, “The Misbehavers,” sees unsupervised minors getting their chaperone in trouble. It’s not utterly insufferable, as it comes across like an R-rated
