July 2018
True Stories to Film

 

Friday, July 6 Double feature!

Battleship Potemkin 1925 / 66 min. / NR / CC

Battleship Potemkin is an anti-czarist propaganda film cowritten and directed by Sergei Eisenstein during the first decade of Soviet rule. It is best known for Eisenstein’s demonstration of his montage technique—that is, juxtaposing long shots and closeups, high and low camera angles, and so on, by means of precise, dramatic editing. Potemkin brings intensity to the story of a 1905 mutiny by czarist sailors rebelling against dehumanizing conditions.

AND

            The General 1926 / 67 min. / NR / CC

Johnnie Gray (Buster Keaton) of Marietta, Georgia is the conductor of the locomotive The General. When the Civil War breaks out, he tries to enlist in the Confederate Army, but he’s rejected. Sad sack Gray and The General soon encounter the Union Army. In hilarious sight-gag reversals, the Yankees and Gray steal the train back and forth from each other. Based on an 1863 Confederate memoir, The General is now considered one of the best films ever made.

 

Friday, July 13            Chicago 2002 / 113 min. / PG-13 / CC

The story begins when housewife Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger) shoots her abusive lover. In jail she meets Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta-Jones), a vaudevillian (and killer). Their shared attorney (Richard Gere) turns them into PR razzle-dazzle, intending to influence—well, everyone. John C. Reilly and Queen Latifah have juicy supporting roles. The film is based on real-life jazz-age murders that inspired the hit Broadway musical, then this fabulous film.

 

Friday, July 20             A Beautiful Mind 2001 / 135 min. / PG-13 / CC

After completing graduate work at Princeton, mathematician John Nash agrees to teach at MIT, where he meets and falls in love with a student (Jennifer Connelly), whom he marries. After a while, his mind starts to play tricks on him. Without realizing it, he becomes a paranoid schizophrenic, so engrossed with imagined government encryption work that his marriage starts to unravel. Ron Howard directed this thriller about Nash, later a Nobel Prize winner.

 

Friday, July 27     Missing 1982 / 122 min. / PG / CC

An American journalist has disappeared. His father and wife (Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek) go to the unnamed country where he has been working. They search by questioning the country’s military and US officials, but receive virtually no information. Based on the true story of Charles Horman during the 1973 US-backed coup d’état against democratically elected Chilean President Salvador Allende. This Costa-Gavras film won the Palme D’or at Cannes.

Pictures from the Tumultuous 70s

Friday, August 3   The Last Picture Show 1971 / 118 min. / R / CC

The time is 1951 in a tiny Texas town. A diner, a pool hall and the Royal movie theater are the only places to go, “except to bed,” critic Roger Ebert wryly comments in his review. Best friends Sonny (Timothy Bottoms) and Duane (Jeff Bridges) lust after a phony rich girl (Cybill Shepherd). Adults mostly guard their secrets. In the end, loss shakes loose some authentic emotion from the friends. Cloris Leachman and Ellen Burstyn are superb in supporting roles.

 

Friday, August 10   A Woman Under the Influence 1974 / 155 min. / R / CC

An LA housewife and mother, Mabel (Gena Rowlands), is unpredictable, sometimes volatile, sometimes overly friendly, to the extent that her construction worker husband, Nick (Peter Falk), wonders about her ability to handle the life they lead. Stellar performances from both leads make this an essential movie experience. Gena Rowlands won several Best Actress awards for it. The writer-director, John Cassavettes, is an icon of independent film.

 

Friday, August 17 One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest     1975 / 133 min. / R / CC

Considered to be among the greatest films ever, Cuckoo’s Nest is the story of a funny and often satisfying power struggle between a cocky recidivist felon (Jack Nicholson) and an authoritarian mental hospital nurse (Louise Fletcher). It’s based on a Ken Kesey novel, boasts a near perfect ensemble cast (including Christopher Lloyd, Brad Dourif and Danny DeVito) and won all the major awards: Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Screenplay.

 

Friday, August 24 Taxi Driver 1976 / 113 min. / R / CC

After being discharged from the Vietnam-era Marines, Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro) drives a taxi in New York City. He’s a loner who forms attachments to inappropriate women—a  presidential campaign worker (Cybill Shepherd) and a 15 year old prostitute (Jodie Foster), whom he wants to protect. Pushed over the edge by their rejections, he begins to stalk the corrupt, sleazy guys who employ them. Martin Scorsese directs this thriller as black comedy.

 

Friday, August 31 Chinatown 1974 / 130 min. / R / CC

In a story based on the early twentieth century California Water Wars, private eye Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) takes a job following a Department of Water and Power engineer—who soon turns up dead. Immediately, Gittes is led by the engineer’s widow (Faye Dunaway) to peel away layer after layer of corruption and mystery surrounding her husband’s death. Directed by Roman Polanski, Chinatown is another of our greatest—and most beautifully shot—films.
