October 2019
California Mysterioso

Friday, October 4   The Big Sleep    1946 / 114 min. / NR

A conspicuously wealthy L.A. civic leader hires private detective Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) to look into the activities of his wild daughter, Carmen, who routinely stumbles into crooks and dead bodies. Meanwhile, Marlowe falls for the kid’s older sister, Vivian (Lauren Bacall). Thanks to script rewrites that catered to 40s fascination with Bogie and Bacall, this gem of the film noir genre is stylish enough to drive away viewers’ uncertainties about what’s going on in the film. Based on a Raymond Chandler novel. 

 

Friday, October 11   L.A. Confidential    1997 / 138 min. / R

In this neo-noir film, each of three Los Angeles police officers has his thing—one (Guy Pearce) is looking for his father’s killer, another (Kevin Spacey) pedals lurid celebrity stories to a tabloid magnate (Danny DeVito) and a third (Russell Crowe) is determined to solve a restaurant takedown in which his ex-partner died. They’re all part of a web that is the corrupt LAPD. Kim Basinger won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Based on a James Ellroy novel.

 

Friday, October 18   Mulholland Drive    2001 / 147 min. / R

A dark-haired woman (Laura Elena Harring) awakens with amnesia after a Mulholland Drive car crash that has saved her from being murdered. She finds an open apartment whose occupant, aspiring actress Betty Elms (Naomi Watts), soon returns. Betty tries to help the woman, who adopts the name Rita from a Rita Hayworth poster.  The slip-sliding setup spins into a surreal story, suspension of disbelief required. Director David Lynch earned high praise from critics.

 

Friday, October 25   Invasion of the Body Snatchers  1956 / 80 min. / NR

Something isn’t right in a small California town. The town doctor (Kevin McCarthy) becomes alarmed when several people report that a family member is not acting like themselves. The doctor investigates. He becomes convinced that an alien force is replacing townspeople with emotionless doppelgängers. Considered a masterpiece among horror films, Invasion has been seen by some as a metaphor for the effects of McCarthyism on Americans.

 

November 2019

For Thanksgiving:  Celebrate Native American Heritage


Friday, November 1   A Good Day to Die      2010 / 92 min. / NR

Dennis Banks was a co-founder of the American Indian Movement [AIM], which sponsored political actions to protest the treatment of Native Americans—notably the occupation of Alcatraz in 1969, and, in 1973, AIM’s 71-day occupation of the Pine Ridge Reservation while under siege by the FBI. This important documentary uses Banks’s life to trace betrayals Native Americans have suffered as well as their will to fight for their rights.

 

Great Film Performances


Friday, November 8   Sidney Poitier : In the Heat of the Night   1967 / 110 min. / NR

It’s 1966.  A white man has been murdered in Sparta, Mississippi. When the police settle on a traveler named Virgil Tibbs (Sidney Poitier) as their suspect, they‘re pissed to find that Tibbs is a homicide detective from Philadelphia. While verifying Tibbs’s story, the police chief (Rod Steiger) asks Tibbs’s boss to let Tibbs help with their case. The result is Poitier’s painfully taut portrayal of a smart, wary Black cop dodging resentments in a racist southern town.

 

Friday, November 15  Meryl Streep : Sophie’s Choice    1982 / 150 min. / R

Meryl Streep plays Sophie, a Polish refugee from World War II Europe who lives with a depressed yet often effervescent bipolar man, Nathan (Kevin Kline), in a Brooklyn rooming house—along with Stingo, an aspiring writer from the south. Stingo and Sophie narrate, by turns, and gradually Sophie’s fearsome wartime experiences emerge. Roger Ebert says of Streep: “This is one of the most astonishing and yet one of the most unaffected and natural performances I can imagine.” Streep won the Best Actress Academy Award.

 

Friday, November 22  Daniel Day-Lewis : My Left Foot    1989 / 103 min. / R

Based on the autobiography of Christy Brown (Daniel Day-Lewis), an Irish writer and artist born with severe cerebral palsy.  The title refers to the fact that Brown only has control of his left foot. Yet, encouraged by his mother (Brenda Fricker), he has the determination and grit to draw, paint and write by holding brushes, pencils and pens between his toes. Directed by Jim Sheridan (In America, Station Agent). Day-Lewis and Fricker won Academy Awards for acting.
