The Dust of Time

Germany, Greece, Italy, Russia | 2008 | Theo Angelopoulos

Willem Dafoe, Bruno Ganz, Michel Piccoli, and Irène Jacob star in the last completed film by the late, great Greek filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos. The second part of a planned trilogy that Angelopoulos was finishing when he died in 2012 (2004’s virtuosic The Weeping Meadow was the first part), The Dust of Time follows a Greek-American movie director (Dafoe) as he attempts to tell his mother’s life story on screen—specifically, her love for two men during...

United States | 1956-70 | John and Faith Hubley

John Hubley (1914-1977) was an important American animator who worked at Disney during the 1930s and 1940s but later joined United Productions of America, where he created Mr. Magoo and helped pioneer UPA’s more contemporary and design-y style of “limited animation.” After running afoul of the House Committee for Un-American Activities in the early 1950s, he left UPA and founded his own independent animation company with his wife and fellow artist, Faith. There he won...

All the Light in the Sky

United States | 2012 | Joe Swanberg

Joe Swanberg's new movie is one of the most acclaimed works by this prolific indie filmmaker. Jane Adams (Hung, Happiness) plays an aging L.A. actress who is keenly aware that the roles she can play are drying up.

It Felt Like Love

United States | 2013 | Eliza Hittman

A lonely 14-year-old girl who longs to be sexually experienced like her slightly older best friend sets her sights on an older, thuggish college boy who "will sleep with anyone." Eliza Hittman's highly acclaimed debut feature—a rare coming-of-age story from a female point of view—is “brilliantly, brutally tactile" (Village Voice). "Rarely has the zone between girlhood and womanhood been captured with such urgent honesty." -The L.A. Times.

Honey

France, Italy | 2013 | Valeria Golino

The highly acclaimed first feature directed by veteran Italian actress Valeria Golino (Rain Man) shows her to be a filmmaker of sensitivity and style. An introspective woman who advocates euthanasia for terminally ill patients (and secretly facilitates assisted suicides) has a crisis of conscience when she supplies life-ending drugs to a cynical, suicidal man who turns out to be perfectly healthy. “An impressively mature directing debut.” –The Hollywood Reporter.

The Connection

United States | 1961 | Shirley Clarke

Shirley Clarke's boundary-shattering Beat-era classic, based on an off-Broadway play by Jack Gelber, focuses on eight junkies—some of whom play jazz as they wait for their fix in a NYC loft apartment. A preppy young filmmaker (William Redfield) agrees to pay for the drugs if they will let him film the "connection." This taboo-breaking indie movie was initially banned in New York until the state's supreme court OK’ed its release. Has a 92% "fresh" rating...

He finds salvation at a local bar in the form of a bored, wealthy couple who are willing to pay a lot of...

Gebo and the Shadow

France, Portugal | 2012 | Manoel de Oliveira

The most recent feature from 105-year-old Portuguese master Manoel de Oliveira features a top-notch cast of European art-film stars (Michel Lonsdale, Claudia Cardinale, Jeanne Moreau) and Oliveira regulars (Leonor Silveira, Luís Miguel Cintra, Ricardo Trépa). Based on a play by Raul Brandão, the movie is a claustrophobic drama, set during the late 19th century, in which an elderly couple anxiously awaits the return of their elusive, long-absent son, who’s been seen in town. Don’t miss...

Il Sorpasso (The Easy Life)

Italy | 1962 | Dino Risi

In one of the great examples of Commedia all'italiana, a brash, middle-aged playboy (Vittorio Gassman) takes an uptight young law student (Jean-Louis Trintignant) on a two-day, top-down, summer joy ride in his sports car. They speed along the Italian coast, ogling girls and having a series of carefree adventures. Dino Risi's masterpiece, set during Italy's postwar economic boom, is perhaps the first modern-day road movie. But this favorite of Martin Scorsese and Alexander Payne has...

The French Minister

France | 2013 | Bertrand Tavernier

The new film by veteran French filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier (whose 1980 A Week’s Vacation was the first movie ever presented by the Cinematheque) is a biting and buoyant political comedy about a handsome, arrogant, and (thankfully) fictional French Minister of Foreign Affairs (Thierry Lhermitte) who is continually setting fires around the world that his beleaguered staff –and new speechwriter—must put out. “A sparkling and savvy comedy...Spry, pleasingly funny.” –Variety.

7:30 pm

Double Feature! Shows with "The Missing Picture"

Golden Slumbers

France | Cambodia | 2011 | Davy Chou

Two new documentaries that remember the casualties of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge. Golden Slumbers is a poetic remembrance of Cambodian cinema, which shone brightly from 1960 to 1975 with more than 400 productions. Unfortunately the Khmer Rouge regime destroyed almost every one of the movies and executed most of the country’s creative community. “Elegantly assembled and deeply moving.” –Variety.

Double Feature! Shows with "Golden Slumbers"

The Missing Picture

France | Cambodia | 2013 | Rithy Panh

Two new documentaries that remember the casualties of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge. The Missing Picture, one of this year’s five Oscar nominees for Best Foreign Language Film, is a unique autobiography in which Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh employs painted, miniature clay figurines to re-create a genocide that was never documented on film—specifically the atrocities visited on his own family by Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge during the nightmarish 1970s. Has a 98% “fresh” rating on...
