September 2017

Cinematography: It’s All About Light

 

Friday, September 1               Shanghai Express                (1932 / 82 min. / NR, Pre-Code / no CC)

It’s 1931, and there is civil war in China. A few Westerners are trying to make their way by train to an international port. One is Shanghai Lily (Marlene Dietrich), a courtesan since her lover, Captain Donald Harvey (Clive Brook), left her. When the Shanghai Express pulls out, both former lovers happen to be aboard. A warlord (Warner Oland) makes one appear to betray the other. The film’s high-contrast black and white, Oscar-winning cinematography owes much to the director, Josef von Sternberg, who made a career of using light to sculpt Dietrich’s face.

 

Friday, September 8 Days of Heaven (1978 / 94 min. / PG / CC)

In 1916, a Chicago steel worker named Bill (Richard Gere) kills his boss in a fight. He and his lover Abby (Brooke Adams) flee to Texas, where they sign on to help harvest the crops of a rich but sick farmer (Sam Shepard). Later they scheme to inherit the man’s land. Director Terrence  Malick wanted the film’s visuals to dominate, so Hector Alemandros and Haskell Wexler shot much of the film at dusk for soft afterglow lighting, and won the Best Cinematography Oscar.

 

Friday, September 15 Night of the Hunter (1955 / 92 min. / Approved / CC)

In 1930s West Virginia, Reverend Harry Powell (Robert Mitchum) works his way into the good graces of Willa Harper (Shelley Winters), the widow of his former cellmate in the penitentiary. He marries her. Toxic on a grand scale, Powell is looking for robbery money the dead husband had hidden.The film is shot in gorgeous black and white in a German Expressionist style, with shadows, odd camera angles and surreal sets. An elderly Lillian Gish plays a family friend.

 

Friday, September 22 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968 / 149 min. / G / CC)

2001 attempts to encompass what is—from prehistory through the unknown future—with astonishing special effect cinematography and little dialogue. The narrative involves space flights to the moon and Jupiter and competition between human and artificial intelligences, but really, the subject is everything. Director Stanley Kubrick and science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke adapted the screenplay primarily from a short story by Clarke. It is one of the most highly acclaimed films ever, but don’t be afraid to have doubts. Berkeley’s Pauline Kael did.

 

Friday, September 29 Amélie (2001 / 122 min. / R / CC)

Home-schooled by eccentric parents in Paris, Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) rebels, and later, as a grownup, she is prone to stake out her own reality. Happenstance is not happenstance. One thing leads to another. When she finds a box of mementoes hidden in her apartment, she’s determined to find the owner, with consequences. Her vivid life inspires luscious color on the screen. Praised for its look, Amélie was nominated for a Best Cinematography Academy Award.

 

October 2017

Hitchcock

 

Friday, October 6 Notorious (1946 / 141 min. / Approved / CC)

After her German father is convicted of treason against the U.S., Alicia Huberman (Ingrid Bergman) is approached by a government agent (Cary Grant) to spy against her father’s Nazi friends. An intense, edgy romance develops between them as Alicia works her way into a position of trust with the Germans. Roger Ebert said Notorious is “the most elegant expression of the master’s visual style.”

 

Friday, October 13 Rear Window (1954 / 115 min. / Approved / CC)

When professional photographer Jeff Jeffries (James Stewart) is laid up in his New York apartment with a broken leg, he voyeuristically watches his neighbors through a rear window and suspects one of them of murder. He enlists the help of his fashion consultant girlfriend (Grace Kelly) and visiting nurse (Thelma Ritter) to investigate. The Rotten Tomatoes website states  “Hitchcock…[reaches the] full potential of suspense in this masterpiece.” 

 

Friday, October 20 North by Northwest (1959 / 136 min. / Not rated / CC)

Madison Avenue advertising executive Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant) is mistaken for a spy and framed for murder. He flees across the country, intending to clear himself of the crime.  Along the way he’s pursued by shady characters and meets a Hitchcockian blond (Eve Marie Sainte). This thriller comes with a large dollop of humor courtesy of Ernest Lehman’s script and Cary Grant’s comic genius. Note: Previously we announced Spellbound for this date; we’re sorry for any inconvenience.

 

Friday, October 27 Psycho (1960 / 109 min. / Not rated / CC)

This is Hitchcock’s once controversial foray into the horror genre. Wanting desperately to marry her indebted boyfriend, Phoenix real estate secretary Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) steals $40,000 from her boss and skips town. She stops for the night at the Bates Motel. After proprietor Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) tells her about the difficult relationship he has with his controlling mother, Marion goes back to her room—and meets the business end of a chef’s knife while showering. The rest of the film works toward solution of the crime. Highly acclaimed.
