    • Director: Dava Whisenant
    • Genre(s): Comedy, Documentary
    • Rating: PG-13
    • Running Time: 87 min.
    "Bathtubs Over Broadway is pure pleasure, both in its exploration of a hidden and uniquely American corner of show business and its portrait of the charmingly nerdy Young and his singular path toward rescuing this sub-sub-sub-genre while many of its executors are still alive to tell their stories. "
    - Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
    "With its balance of exuberant humor and rigorous insight, Bathtubs Over Broadway provides as stellar an education for the uninformed as Siegel’s ‘The Bathrooms Are Coming!’ "
    - Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com
    "You’re definitely going to laugh and laugh out loud. Young has several hilarious moments with his subjects, and the absurdity of these musicals and songs create an endless stream of silly giggles. "
    - Alan Ng, Film Threat
    "Bathtubs Over Broadway rediscovers the forgotten world of industrial musicals through rare recordings and film clips, and it is as smoothly entertaining as showbiz set piece, and at times flat-out funny. "
    - G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
    "Anyone who loves musical theater owes it to themselves to see Bathtubs Over Broadway, a delightful deep-dive documentary into one man’s obsession with the obscure world of industrial musicals — corporate-sponsored song-and-dance revues from the golden age of American capitalism. "
    - Peter Debruge, Variety

    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 188 min.
    "The title of Never Look Away is deliciously ironic: This is one of the most mesmerizing, compulsively watchable films in theaters right now. "
    - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
    "Never Look Away makes an eloquent case for art as an expression of hope, a way of searching for meaning in chaos. "
    - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
    "Never Look Away is an often moving, thoughtful drama about the correlations between personal experience, politics and art. "
    - Demetrios Matheou, Screen International
    "Donnersmarck has crafted an unparalleled masterpiece, a three-plus hour epic that leaves you wanting more. "
    - Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
    "In a larger sense, the film is about the postwar generation of Germans desperate for a new direction, and when Henckel von Donnersmarck focuses on the artmaking, it’s powerful — a persuasive statement about the transformative power of representation. "
    - Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
    "The German Oscar nominee for best foreign-language film is a triumphant return form to filmmaker Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, a treatise on love and war and the limitless reach of art that, even when it trips up, is never less than exhilarating. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

    - Anthony Kaufman, Screen International
    "Apollo 11 will bring you to tears — it’s a reminder of national functionality, of making the big dream happen without ego or divisiveness. "
    - Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
    "[A] masterful work of archival research. "
    - Nate Jones, New York Magazine/Vulture
    "Apollo 11 is foremost a tale of technology and humanity; It’s more about a country that needed a figurative lift, and got it with a literal one. "
    - Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post
    "Apollo 11 is a cool, meticulous, at times enthralling documentary that captures the Apollo 11 flight in its entirety through raw footage drawn from the NASA vaults. "
    - Owen Gleiberman, Variety
    "Much of the footage in Apollo 11 is, by virtue of both access and proper preservation, utterly breathtaking. "

Staff Picks: Y Tu Mamá También (2002)

starts March 29

Staff Picks Series
Every month a member of the Moxie staff picks a film that impacted their lives and we put it up on the big screen.
March’s pick was made by Derek Dunn.
“Cuarón’s loving portrait of rural Mexico is told through the viewpoints of two young men full of youthful abandon and a woman dealing with her own newly-realized mortality. This juxtaposition infuses the film with a unique perspective that brings to life the fleeting beauty of a country and culture too-often neglected by Western audiences. The film is full of rough edges, and that brash and unrefined approach make me love the final product even more.”

Free for Members

Summary: Abandoned by their girlfriends for the summer, two teenagers meet an exotic older woman at a wedding, and they embark on a road trip together.

Following an unforgettable opening performance lit by virtuoso cinematographer Benoît Debie (Spring Breakers; Enter the Void) and shot by Noé himself, the troupe begins an all-night celebration that turns nightmarish as the dancers discover they’ve been pounding cups of sangria laced with potent LSD. Tracking their journey from jubilation to chaos and full-fledged anarchy, Noé observes crushes, rivalries, and violence amid a collective psychedelic meltdown. [A24]

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington ( Drury Humanities)

starts April 13

Dr. Dan Ponder, professor of political science, will lead a post show discussion of the film.
Great insights to great films courtesy of Drury’s Humanities faculty.

Synopsis: A naive man is appointed to fill a vacancy in the United States Senate. His plans promptly collide with political corruption, but he doesn’t back down.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) is producer/director Frank Capra’s classic comedy-drama, and considered by many to be his greatest achievement in film (and reminiscent of his earlier film, Mr. Deeds Goes To Town (1936)). [In fact, the film project by Columbia was first announced as Mr. Deeds Goes to Washington starring Gary Cooper, in a role similar to his previous Longfellow Deeds character.

The wonderfully-acted, absorbing and human film was popular at the box-office and critically successful too. However, the film caused some controversy and pressure was brought to bear to hinder its release (two months after the outbreak of WWII in Europe), due to the fact that Capra’s film was propagandistic, depicted political corruption, and appeared to paint an anti-democratic picture of the US government and its inner workings. But the film also called for faith in traditional American values of patriotism and faith in the people, and provided an educational lesson in how bills are passed through Congress. [Filmsite.org]

Bag It (2011)

starts April 18

This special free screening is sponsored by
SGF Environmental Services. There will be a panel discussion following the film.
Seating is first come first serve.

Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes-single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is “away?” Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life and human health? Bag It follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Jeb’s journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? Jeb looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society-from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products-is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic-making process. When Jeb’s journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

This movie portrays a unique and eccentric perspective on the topic of plastics in our global society and is presented for the purpose of stimulating discussion in our own community. The thoughts and opinions shared are those of the creators and does not necessarily reflect those of the City of Springfield.
