May 2019

Notably Inventive Films


Friday, May 3   Man with a Movie Camera    1929 / 68 min. / N

Disavowing documentaries modeled after theater and literature, Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov shot the footage that became Man with a Movie Camera over a period of three years in four Soviet cities, inventing new camera techniques as he worked. His wife, Elizaveta Svilova, edited the film to be fast and surprising, which drew skepticism early on. It has since been called the best documentary ever made by the prestigious film magazine Sight and Sound.


AND    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari    1920 / 67 min. / NR

At a carnival booth in a German town, Dr. Caligari wakes his somnambulist, Cesare, who correctly predicts a man’s death. When the man is killed during the night, the police suspect Caligari of using Cesare to commit murders. This was one of the first films to follow the highly symbolic and stylized bent of German Expressionism, a reaction to the horrors of World War I. Really the first horror film, its off-kilter, high-contrast sets influenced artists like Salvador Dali.

 

Friday, May 10   No screening / Friends of the Library Book Sale Prep

 

Friday, May 17   Hugo       2011 / 126 min. / PG

The film is about an orphaned 12 year old boy who lives alone in Paris’s Montparnasse railway station in 1931. He maintains the building’s clocks, and fixes or invents whatever else he can, as he had been taught by his father (Jude Law). Finally, an aging toy maker with secrets (Ben Kingsley) brings Hugo’s indentured life at Gare Montparnasse to a surprising conclusion. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards, and Martin Scorsese won a Golden Globe for directing.

 

Friday, May 24   King Kong      1933 / 100 min. / Passed

In 1932 filmmaker Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) charters a boat and heads for Skull Island, where lives a huge ape-like creature known as Kong. Right away, villagers capture leading lady Ann (Fay Wray) and offer her to Kong. He fights to keep her, but the film crew finally subdues and takes him to New York to be exhibited as a nightmarish curiosity. He escapes and goes on a rampage through the city, Fay Wray in hand. It was suitable distraction from the Depression.

 

Friday, May 31   Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind           2004 / 108 min. / R

When New Yorkers Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) and Clementine Cruczinski (Kate Winslet) meet on a train to Montauk, they share an odd attraction. They’re different—Joel shy and awkward, Clementine a brash free spirit. Turns out they’ve been through this before and tried to have a pseudo scientific company erase their memories of each other.  For us and for them, as the movie moves on, screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Adaptation) smashes linear time.

 

June 2019
Spotlight on Music

Friday, June 7         Songcatcher 2000 / 109 min. / PG-13

It is 1907. When a female musicologist and college professor (Janet McTeer) is passed over for a deserved promotion, she angrily departs for the Appalachians of western North Carolina to record mountain dwellers’’ traditional songs, intending to restart her career’s momentum. More than she bargained for, the music and its singers absorb and transform her. Written and directed by Maggie Greenwald, the film has a captivating soundtrack.

 

Friday, June 14 Cabaret 1972 / 124 min. / PG-13

Set in the Weimar Republic starting in 1931, the film depicts the rise of the Nazi Party in Berlin. The Kit Kat Club’s Master of Ceremonies (Joel Grey) greets the decadent and the anxious with “Willkommen” and the sultry singing and dancing of Sally Bowles (Liza Minnelli in her first singing film role). Brilliantly directed by choreographer Bob Fosse, the film is based on Christopher Isherwood’s Goodbye to Berlin. It won 8 Academy Awards including Best Director and Best Actress. It was groundbreaking in its dark subject matter and literary / musical craft.

 

Friday, June 21 Jazz on a Summer’s Day 1959 / 85 min. / NR

More than a concert film, Jazz on a Summer’s Day takes place at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival during the America’s Cup yacht races. The narration-free film has the immediacy of a lived experience, shifting its focus between the ocean’s blues, straining sails and exquisite music performed by the likes of Anita O’Day, Thelonius Monk, Chuck Berry, Big Maybelle, Dinah Washington, Ray Charles, Mahalia Jackson, Louis Armstrong and Jack Teagarden.

 

Friday, June 28 Green Book   2018 / 130 min. / PG-13

In 1962 an eccentric African American jazz pianist, Doctor Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), needs a driver for a tour of the Deep South. He hires Copacabana bouncer “Tony Lip” Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen), a coarse but affable White guy. As the two move south, Tony becomes angry when Don is treated disrespectfully in white venues, and Don warms to Tony when Tony rescues him from trouble. The film won the 2019 Oscar for Best Picture, and Ali won for Best Supporting Actor.
