  • The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    5:15pm

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer
    • Starring: Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Alicia Silverstone
    • Director: Giorgos Lanthimos
    • Genre(s): Drama, Mystery, Thriller, Horror
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 121 min.
    "The Killing of a Sacred Deer is Lanthimos with the gloves off, and it makes the absurd, amazing “The Lobster” seem like a warm and cuddly experience by comparison. "
    - Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
    "The Killing of a Sacred Deer envelops you in its strange, disturbing world with the manipulative skill of a true surrealist master. "
    - Darren Ruecker, We Got This Covered
    "With uniformly great performances throughout the cast and Lanthimos’ stunning eye for detail and composition, this is one of the most unforgettable films of the year. "
    - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
    "To see an unfettered nightmare like this from such an idiosyncratic director feels like a cruel treat, and a welcome stylistic stretch. "
    - Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine (Vulture)
    "It’s an intriguing, disturbing, amusing twist on something which in many ways could be a conventional horror-thriller from the 1970s or 1980s, or even a bunny-boiler nightmare from the 90s. "
    - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
    "In Farrell and Kidman, he has found two performers who are utterly willing to go the whole hog and their performances are brilliant deadpans. "
    - John Bleasdale, CineVue
    "The film unfolds like an alternate-reality stalker thriller, like a twisted slow-burn Cape Fear, only with an element of the fantastic that Lanthimos boldly refuses to explain. "
    - A.A. Dowd, AV Club
    "With his impeccably symmetrical frames, his precise camera moves, his careful blocking of actors, his sudden crashes of classical music, Lanthimos crafts a cinematic world that can support his otherworldly scenario, while also creating genuine suspense. "
    - Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
    "The rich vein of unsettling darkness and psychological unease that ripples like a treacherous underground stream beneath the absurdist humor of Yorgos Lanthimos’ work becomes a brooding requiem of domestic horror in his masterfully realized fifth feature. The impressive rigor of its craft, the skillfully subdued intensity of the acting, and the startling originality of the story will make it unmissable for anyone who cares about bold filmmaking. "
    - David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

    - John Semley, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
    "You will marvel at the art in this labor-intensive labor-of-love. "
    - Bob Mondello, NPR
    "Brings a poetic sense of tragedy to the last act of van Gogh’s life, and fresh insight into the kind of man he was. "
    - Peter Debruge, Variety
    "Part mystery, part visual experiment, ‘Loving Vincent’ is a reverent ode to the 19th century painter Vincent van Gogh. "
    - Anna Smith, Time Out
    "One of the most lunatic labors of love to appear on movie screens this year. And in that sense, a fitting, miraculous tribute to its subject. "
    - Joe McGovern, Entertainment Weekly
    "A triumph of painstaking technical prowess and stunning visuals over storytelling and dialogue. See it for its nuanced take on a huge cultural figure and to applaud its astounding audacity. "
    - Ian Freer, Empire
    "There are enough traces of the artist himself in the movie, from his many paintings to the famous letters he wrote to his brother and benefactor Theo, to please both experts and newbies, who should enjoy watching his work come to life on screen. "
    - Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    - Christopher Machell, CineVue

    - Richard Rushfield, The Ankler
    "Jane isn’t just required viewing for fans of Goodall or animal lovers, but anyone seeking a classic in the making. "
    - Kate Erbland, Indiewire
    "Jane is an epic romance filled with hope and brimming with a love for life and all of its ups and downs. "
    - April Wolfe, Village Voice
    "The film confronts not just the expected issue of environmentalism but also explores themes of survival, separation, loss, and death. "
    - Peter Keough, Boston Globe
    "For all the advancements that Goodall brought to our understanding of chimpanzees, the real lesson of “Jane” may be that it is connection - whether among humans or chimpanzees - that is the true measure of a species. "
    - Pat Padua, Washington Post
    "There are no loose ends or wasted time; everything builds to a rising crescendo that makes you feel like your heart is going to burst. "
    - April Wolfe, L.A. Weekly
    "Goodall dreamed of Africa, not domestic bliss. In one lovely shot, she stands barefoot in the rain veiled by a clear tarp wet with lacy droplets, a woman married to her ambitions. "
    - Amy Nicholson, Uproxx
    "Full of vivid greens and sun-backlit wildlife imagery, Van Lawick’s shots are beautifully composed yet not too formal looking, thanks to the warm, grainy quality of 16-millimeter film. “Jane” looks like an old home movie directed by David Lean. "
    - Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle
    "With a thrilling musical score from Oscar nominated composer Philip Glass this film from director Brett Morgen should be a prime Oscar contender not only for Documentary Feature, but also Original Music Score, and perhaps Film Editing. One of the highlights of the recent Toronto International Film Festival. "
    - Pete Hammond, Deadline
    "A mesmerizing documentary, filled with incredible footage of Goodall in the field and modern-day interviews, all set to the best score from Philip Glass in years. One of the best documentaries of 2017. An astonishing accomplishment. Morgen is setting the bar for profile documentaries and changing the rules for his field. "

    • Running Time: 115 min.
    "It’s that honesty that makes The Florida Project so powerful. This is a remarkable film, one of the best of the year. "
    - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
    "This is a near-perfect film, and a heightening in every way of everything that was great about Baker’s last movie. "
    - Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine (Vulture)
    "While minimal on plot, the film digs in its nails on the day-to-day struggles of poor people in America. "
    - Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
    "The Florida Project further cements Baker’s status as one of the most innovative American directors working today, but he’s also an essential advocate for the stories this country often doesn’t get to see. "
    - Eric Kohn, indieWIRE
    "The Florida Project is sublime: a blast of life, of celebratory highs and lamentable lows, on the outer economic edges of the Sunshine State. "
    - A.A. Dowd, AV Club
    "A fabulous mosaic of one particular pocket of America’s invisible homeless population - families living hand-to-mouth in motels originally designed to catch the tourist overspill from the flashy theme-park resorts across town. "
    - David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
    "The Florida Project won’t let us look away. Nor, given its brilliance, would we want to. Instead, we laugh, we watch silently, and we’re challenged to stop simplifying people’s lives so we can offer easy theoretical answers. "
    - Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

    - Variety
    "From Clint Eastwood’s iconic performance to Ennio Morricone’s unforgettable (and much-parodied) musical score, A Fistful of Dollars (****) took the western down trails it had never explored. "

The Wild Bunch (1969)

starts November 26

Essential Western Films This new quarterly series showcases the “essential” films everyone should see on the big screen. For each month-long program, we’ll screen five films organized by one of the following themes: directors, actors, genres, and eras/movements.
Essential tickets are $9 for Adults, $8 for Students/Seniors and Members get in Free!

The Wild Bunch (1969) is director/co-writer Sam Peckinpah’s provocative, brilliant yet controversial Western, shocking for its graphic and elevated portrayal of violence and savagely-explicit carnage, yet hailed for its truly realistic and reinterpreted vision of the dying West in the early 20th century. Peckinpah had earlier directed another classic western about the West’s passing, Ride the High Country (1962) and the epic western film Major Dundee (1965). Many of the film’s major stars, including William Holden, Edmond O’Brien, Robert Ryan and Ben Johnson, were veterans of westerns with a more romantic view of the West in the 40s and 50s. This hard-edged, landmark masterpiece of the Western film genre was beautifully shot in wide-screen by cinematographer Lucien Ballard.

Summary: An aging group of outlaws look for one last big score as the “traditional” American West is disappearing around them.

Newtown

starts December 16

This free screening is sponsored by MOMS Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. RSVP here. A brief panel discussion will follow the film.

On December 14, 2012, a disturbed young man committed a horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut that took the lives of 20 elementary school children and six educators. Filmed over the course of nearly three years, Newtown uses deeply personal, never-before-heard testimonies to tell the story of the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history. Through raw and heartbreaking interviews with parents, siblings, teachers, doctors, and first responders, Newtown documents a traumatized community still reeling from the senseless killing, fractured by grief but driven toward a sense of purpose.

There are no words of compassion or reassurance that can bring back those who lost their lives during the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Instead, Snyder delves into the lives and homes of those who remain, all of whom have been indelibly changed by the events. They speak candidly about their grief, anger, and disbelief over what occurred and their disappointment that nothing has truly changed in regards to the country’s legislative response to gun violence. Newtown bears witness to their profound grief and allows it to reverberate within our collective conscience, exploring what happens to a community after it becomes the epicenter of a national discussion, and what it must cope with after the cameras leave.
