The Wicker Man: Final Cut

Barbados, United Kingdom | 1973 | Robin Hardy

For its 40th anniversary, the much-mutilated cult classic that Cinefantastique once called "the Citizen Kane of horror films" has been digitally restored to a version authorized by its director. Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, Britt Ekland, Diane Cilento, and Ingrid Pitt star in the movie—a sexy, suspenseful tale of a devoutly Christian British policeman who searches for a missing girl on a remote Scottish island where paganism is practiced. Screenplay by Anthony Shaffer (Sleuth, Hitchcock's Frenzy)....

At Berkeley

United States | 2013 | Frederick Wiseman

For his 40th feature, America’s foremost chronicler of U.S. institutions, Frederick Wiseman (Titicut Follies, High School, et al.), captures the inner workings and struggles of the University of California at Berkeley, a public university that is also one of the nation’s great centers of higher learning. Culling 250 hours of footage (shot over 12 weeks) to a mere 244 minutes, Wiseman shows how U.C. Berkeley is facing numerous challenges—from finite financial aid and massive cuts...

Bluebeard's Eighth Wife

United States | 1938 | Ernst Lubitsch

Claudette Colbert, Gary Cooper, and David Niven star in this Lubitsch comedy written by Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder (who kept a sign in his office that said "How would Lubitsch do it?"). Colbert plays the eighth wife of an oft-divorced millionaire (Cooper) who is determined not to end up like her predecessors.

A Touch Of Sin

China | 2013 | Jia Zhangke

Jia Zhangke’s new film marks a radical change of pace for the acclaimed Chinese director of Still Life and The World. It’s an angry contemporary drama that re-creates four under-reported but actual incidents from recent Chinese history—two killing sprees, one murder, and one suicide—all involving dissatisfied or exploited workers. “An explosive indictment of the Chinese economic miracle and its brutalizing effect on ordinary Chinese life.” –Film Comment. Best Screenplay, Cannes 2013. A 2013 New York...

Portrait Of Jason

United States | 1967 | Shirley Clarke

This unique work that Ingmar Bergman called "the most extraordinary film I've seen in my life" was shot by indie giant Shirley Clarke in her Chelsea Hotel apartment during one marathon, 12-hour session that started at 9 pm on 12/2/66. Jason Holliday, a flamboyant, gay, 33-year-old African-American hustler and aspiring cabaret singer, recounts his tortured, troubled life for Clarke's camera. He is drinking. Clarke continually goads Jason for more stories, more songs, more truth (was...

White Reindeer

United States | 2013 | Zach Clark

A hit at SXSW and numerous underground film festivals, this hilariously dark and twisted new Christmas comedy tells of a female real estate agent in suburban Virginia who finds herself consorting with strippers and swingers after an unexpected tragedy spoils her holiday season. But this is no cynical Bad Santa; it also has a heart worthy of the season. "A solemn twist on the holiday movie formula that simultaneously inhabits the genre and turns it...

The Last Time I Saw Macao

France, Portugal | 2012 | Joćo Pedro Rodrigues, Joćo Rui Guerra da Mata

The new film from the adventurous Portuguese creators of To Die Like a Man is an intoxicating blend of film noir, documentary, and personal travelogue. Set in the former Portuguese colony of Macao (now controlled by China), the movie follows an unseen protagonist who journeys there from Portugal to find Candy, an old friend in need of help, Candy, who may have been kidnaped by a local crime syndicate.

A Touch of Lubitsch

The Shop Around The Corner

United States | 1940 | Ernst Lubitsch

James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan star in one of Lubitsch’s most beloved masterpieces, about two co-workers in a Budapest shop who don’t realize that they are secret lonely hearts pen pals. If this plotline sounds familiar, it’s because it was reworked in 1998’s You’ve Got Mail. With Frank Morgan. “I think I was never as good as in Shop Around the Corner. Never did I make a picture in which the atmosphere and the characters...

A Touch of Lubitsch

Heaven Can Wait

United States | 1943 | Ernst Lubitsch

Lubitsch’s delightful late comedy (and the only Technicolor film in our series) stars Don Ameche as a recently deceased dandy and roué who shows up at the gates of Hell and tries to convince the Devil that his sinful life during the Gay Nineties (seen in flashback) qualifies him for eternal damnation. “Five stars (highest rating)…The most joyful fantasy-love story ever filmed.” –Video Movie Guide 1998. With Gene Tierney.
