France, Germany | 2012 | Brian De Palma

Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace star in the stylish new thriller by Brian De Palma (Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Scarface)—a sleek, seductive tale about an icy, ambitious female advertising executive and her equally driven and duplicitous protégé.

A Touch of Lubitsch John Ewing introduces

To Be Or Not To Be

United States | 1942 | Ernst Lubitsch

A troupe of Polish actors led by a hammy husband-and-wife team (Jack Benny, Carole Lombard) outwit Hitler and the Nazis in this hilarious (and sometimes heartbreaking) comedy set in occupied Warsaw during WWII. Accused of bad taste in its day, this is now regarded as one of the all-time great screen comedies.

The Look Of Love

United Kingdom, United States | 2013 | Michael Winterbottom

The new film from the director of 24 Hour Party People, Tristram Shandy, and The Trip also stars Steve Coogan. Coogan plays Paul Raymond, a British porn tycoon who was once his nation’s wealthiest man. England’s answer to Hugh Hefner rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s, when he produced nudity-laden revues, published racy men’s magazines, and opened members-only clubs. But his wealth and influence came at a high personal cost, also dramatized here....

Our Children

Belgium, France, Switzerland | 2012 | Joachim Lafosse

Winner of Magritte Awards (Belgian Oscars) for Best Film, Director, and Actress, this shattering psychological drama was also Belgium's official entry for this year's Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Based on an actual case, the movie explores why a young wife and mother (Émilie Dequenne of Rosetta) committed an unspeakable crime—killing her five children. With Niels Arestrup. "Five stars (highest rating)...A near-perfect portrait of a domestic tragedy." -Time Out New York.

The Servant

United Kingdom | 1963 | Joseph Losey

This twisted class-relations classic (written by Harold Pinter) stars Dirk Bogarde as a scheming manservant who proceeds to turn the tables on his effete, moneyed, man-about-town “master” (James Fox). This sardonic, subversive, deliciously decadent upstairs/downstairs psychodrama "literally takes us through the looking glass into a charged, claustrophobic fever dream of privilege, power, and perversion" (Time Out London). “Glaciers might be melting, the polar caps might be crumbling, but not even the passage of half a...

A Touch of Lubitsch

Ninotchka

United States | 1939 | Ernst Lubitsch

“Garbo laughs” (or so proclaimed the original ads) in this celebrated Lubitsch comedy starring Greta Garbo and co-written by Billy Wilder. Prior to cracking up, Garbo is a severe, no-nonsense Soviet agent who has been sent to Paris to supervise the sale of some valuable jewels for her government. While there she falls for a debonair Western playboy (Melvyn Douglas) who represents everything she hates. With Bela Lugosi.

7:25 pm

The Canyons

United States | 2013 | Paul Schrader

The most notorious film of the year stars Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen. It was directed by Paul Schrader and written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho). The Canyons tells of a spoiled, sociopathic Hollywood rich kid who goes ballistic when the male star of a slasher movie he is bankrolling turns out to be an ex-lover of his live-in, plaything girlfriend. “B+…A stylishly scandalous tale of sex, lies, manipulation, moviemaking, murder, and...

Prince Avalanche

United States | 2013 | David Gordon Green

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch star in the new film from the director of George Washington, All the Real Girls, and Pineapple Express. Hailed as a return to form for David Gordon Green, it’s a minimalist, poetic comedy, set during the late 1980s, about a pair of mismatched working men—a self-important, finicky loner (Rudd) and a more relaxed, much younger party animal (Hirsch). The two of them paint lines and install markers on an isolated...

La Strada

Italy | 1954 | Federico Fellini

Pope Francis’s all-time favorite movie (mentioned in a September interview) is this moving Fellini fable that charts the tragicomic relationship between a brutish, itinerant circus strongman (Anthony Quinn) and the simple, innocent waif (Giulietta Masina, Fellini’s wife) whom he buys, employs as a clown, and exploits as a slave. Donald Cozzens, a prominent priest, author, and professor at John Carroll University, will lead a discussion after the movie, perhaps illuminating why the first Jesuit pope...

C**Ksucker Blues

United States | 1972 | Robert Frank

Here’s an ultra-rare screening of a legendary, never released, nigh-impossible-to-see Rolling Stones movie made by fabled photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank (The Americans). In 1972 Frank followed the Stones as they toured North America promoting their album Exile on Main St.; it was their first cross-country U.S. tour since Altamont. Though the band commissioned the film—expecting a frank (so to speak), unvarnished portrait of rock ‘n’ roll life on the road—what they got proved so...

Trouble in Paradise

United States | 1932 | Ernst Lubitsch

In Lubitsch’s celebrated pre-Code romantic comedy, a master thief (Herbert Marshall) and a beautiful pickpocket (Miriam Hopkins), both masquerading as European nobility, join forces to rob a wealthy perfume manufacturer (Kay Francis). This amoral hit was withdrawn from circulation when the Motion Picture Production Code went into effect in 1934, and remained shelved until 1968. “As close to perfection as anything I have ever seen in the movies.” –Dwight Macdonald.

Hannah Arendt

France, Germany | 2012 | Margarethe von Trotta

The new film from the director of the 2009 Hildegard von Bingen drama Vision is another biopic--this time about the German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist who coined the term "the banality of evil" and made lots of enemies with her nuanced coverage of the notorious 1961 trial of ex-Nazi Adolf Eichmann. Barbara Sukowa stars.
