6/13-15: Buster Keaton shorts, Bruno Dumont's Outside Satan, Tabu & more!

HORS SATAN (OUTSIDE SATAN) is masterful, mysterious spiritual drama
The 2011 French film HORS SATAN (OUTSIDE SATAN) is the latest inquiry into the sacred and the profane (and the feral and the spiritual) from master filmmaker Bruno Dumont (HUMANITE). It's a characteristically spare, laconic, gorgeously lensed work. Set in and around the coastal dunes of northwest France, the movie focuses on a mysterious drifter who meets a young girl fleeing her abusive stepfather. This vagrant seems half devil, half saint; he can kill with impunity, but also work miracles. The Village Voice calls HORS SATAN "a secular invocation…an honest account of groping for grace.” It should not be missed on Friday or Saturday when we premiere it locally in a gorgeous 35mm color print. No one under 18 will be admitted! Here's the trailer.

Life has its ups and downs in Pierre Étaix's 1965 French comedy YOYO
The Time Out Film Guide calls Pierre Étaix's 1965 French comedy YOYO "the second and possibly the best of Étaix’s features.” Étaix plays an unhappy millionaire who joins the circus where a former love works as an equestrienne. The first part of this film is set during the 1920s, so has no dialogue—only music and sound effects—like a silent film of that era. See YOYO in a new, restored 35mm print on Friday or Saturday.

Acclaimed Portuguese film TABU tells exquisite story of forbidden love
Voted the second best movie of 2012 in the Sight & Sound critics’ poll (it finished #10 in the Village Voice film poll and #11 in Film Comment’s), Miguel Gomes’ two-part Portuguese film TABU borrows the title (and the monochromatic cinematography) of a 1931 silent movie by F.W. Murnau (SUNRISE, NOSFERATU). The movie's first part, “Paradise Lost,” takes place in modern-day Lisbon, where a middle-aged woman checks in on the elderly, slightly batty woman who lives next door. Part two, entitled “Paradise,” flashes back 50 years to the old woman’s privileged former life in colonial Africa, where she was a young bride carrying on an extramarital affair. This story of forbidden love that threatens the social order echoes Murnau’s TABU, as does Gomes’ decision to film this chapter without dialogue. Don't miss this “gloriously cinephilic fever dream…one of the year’s most rapturous love letters to the cinema” (Toronto Int’l Film Festival) when we bring it back, by popular demand, on Thursday and Saturday. Print this email and present it at the box office and pay only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out)

BUSTER KEATON’S TWO-REEL COMEDIES, PROGRAM 3 features four more hilarious comedy shorts
Four more amazing two-reelers that star and director Buster Keaton made right before turning to features will show in BUSTER KEATON’S TWO-REEL COMEDIES, PROGRAM 3. The program includes: The Playhouse (1921, pictured above), in which Buster imagines a variety show (and theatre) that stars him in every role; The Boat (1921), in which Buster builds a boat (the “Damfino”) that leads to a series of catastrophes; The Paleface (1922), in which Buster plays an entomologist who runs afoul of warring Indians who hate white men; and Cops (1922), in which Buster finds himself pursued by the entire LAPD. See these silent films, with music tracks, in 35mm on Thursday or Friday.

Bob Woodward
Bob Woodward, longtime Cinematheque patron and one of Cleveland's biggest movie buffs for many decades, lost his battle with leukemia last week at age 65. Our sympathies go out to his family and friends. Bob's tendency to tell us -- at length -- about silent films he loved and thought we should show could drive us crazy, but we will miss his enthusiasm and also his cackle of a laugh emanating from the front row of our theatre, where he always sat.
