    THE BEACH BUM

    Director: Harmony Korine/ USA/ 96mins


    Set in Miami and The Florida Keys, The Beach Bum follows the outrageous misadventures of Moondog (Matthew McConaughey), a rebellious burnout who only knows how to live life by his own rules. Complete with an all-star cast including Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Zac Efron, Jimmy Buffett, Martin Lawrence and Jonah Hill, The Beach Bum is the wildly original

    and subversive new comedy from writer/director Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers).

    "Somehow, The Beach Bum is even nuttier, less logical, more visually beautiful and down-in-the-gutter uglier than the film you just imagined from that description”-Rolling Stone

    "Joyous, outrageous and slyly mournful.”-The Guardian

    “The Beach Bum is barely a movie; it’s more of a joyous squiggle adorned with a paper cocktail umbrella, a “What did I just see?” dollar-store trinket. But in these dark times, it’s just the ticket.”-Time Magazine

    THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE

    Director Terry Gilliam/ Spain-France-Belgium-Portugal / 132min


    Two decades in the making, Terry Gilliam’s wildly imaginative Cervantes adaptation is finally with us, and it’s everything we have come to expect from this visionary filmmaker.

    Only a Terry Gilliam film could have spawned two ‘making of’ documentaries made almost two decades before the actual film is released.  For nearly three decdes Terry Gilliam has been attempting to adapt Miguel de Cervantes’ picaresque novel for the screen. Each time his effforts beseiged by a slew of troubles.  Nothing if not determined – and perhaps not dissimilar to the errant nobleman he is hellbent on bringing to the screen – Gilliam persisted and finally his madcap, humorously heraldic mission reaches us. Co-written by Tony Grisoni, Gilliam’s fellow traveller across all these years, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is far from a straightforward adaptation of that classic book. The narrative switches between four worlds: a shoot in Spain where frazzled director Toby (Adam Driver) is attempting to film his own adaptation of Cervantes’ novel; a decade before, when Toby arrived in the same area and shot a low-budget black-and-white version; the filmmaker’s journey with the eponymous star of the first film (Jonathan Pryce) as they escape a series of ‘accidents’; and a hallucinatory dream world where characters from each of the narratives converge. Visually intoxicating, Gilliam offers up a jocular meditation on the pervasive influence of myths, the corrupting nature of power and – particularly relevant to this singular director – the insanity of the filmmaking process.

    “Bears the hallmarks of this director at his broadest, nuttiest, and most extreme, with unhinged performances, overt symbolism, and a cacophonous story that has the logic of a thousand dreams happening simultaneously. It is an uncompromising work”-Village Voice

    “Of course, Gilliam’s quest to make his Don Quixote film mirrors the original novel, and the movie he finally made is like a funhouse mirror version — filled with wonderfully, sometimes disturbingly strange imagery as tragedy meets comedy meets romance meets the noble glory of the artist sacrificing nearly everything in the quest to make lasting art”-Chicago Sun-Times

    an absolute must-see for Gilliam fans and “film that never was” buffs. It’s a picture that crossed into legend long before it was actually, fully and completely in the can."-MovieNation

    KNIFE + HEART

    Director Yann Gonzalez/ France/ 102 min


    It’s the summer of 1979 and in the streets of Paris, France, a serial killer is on the loose. But Anne — played by radiant French pop superstar Vanessa Paradis —  isn’t aware of this yet. Instead, she is sulking over her breakup with Loïs, her lover and the editor of the third-rate gay porn Anne produces. In an attempt to win her back, she decides to shoot her most ambitious film yet, with the full support of her flamboyant best friend Archibald. But Anne gets more than she bargained for when one of her actors is brutally murdered and she gets caught up in a bizarre investigation.

    Making her way through dimly lit streets, busy sets, and sweaty clubs to do the job of the ineffectual investigators, Anne is accompanied by a killer retro score composed by French electronic band M83, only one of the many aesthetic details director Yann Gonzalez carefully chose for his vibrant ode to ’70s horror cult classics.

    Shot on 35mm and featuring a killer retro score from M83, Yann Gonzalez’s KNIFE+HEART is an ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to ’70s-era De Palma, Argento, and Friedkin.

    Official selection: Cannes Film Festival – Official Competition; Fantastic Fest; AFI Fest

    NY TIMES CRITICS PICK “packs in plenty of cinema acrobatics and spectacle without ever feeling out of control, even as it morphs into a far-fetched whodunit. Gonzalez contains his love of screen excess with a deliberation that never feels contrived or cheap.”-Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

    “Fantastic...This magical, erotic, disco-tinged horror-thriller is like cinematic candy.”

    -Los Angeles Times

    “It's Hilarious and haunting and genuinely beautiful”–FilmThreat

    THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE

    Director Terry Gilliam/ Spain-France-Belgium-Portugal / 132min


    Two decades in the making, Terry Gilliam’s wildly imaginative Cervantes adaptation is finally with us, and it’s everything we have come to expect from this visionary filmmaker.

    Only a Terry Gilliam film could have spawned two ‘making of’ documentaries made almost two decades before the actual film is released.  For nearly three decdes Terry Gilliam has been attempting to adapt Miguel de Cervantes’ picaresque novel for the screen. Each time his effforts beseiged by a slew of troubles.  Nothing if not determined – and perhaps not dissimilar to the errant nobleman he is hellbent on bringing to the screen – Gilliam persisted and finally his madcap, humorously heraldic mission reaches us. Co-written by Tony Grisoni, Gilliam’s fellow traveller across all these years, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is far from a straightforward adaptation of that classic book. The narrative switches between four worlds: a shoot in Spain where frazzled director Toby (Adam Driver) is attempting to film his own adaptation of Cervantes’ novel; a decade before, when Toby arrived in the same area and shot a low-budget black-and-white version; the filmmaker’s journey with the eponymous star of the first film (Jonathan Pryce) as they escape a series of ‘accidents’; and a hallucinatory dream world where characters from each of the narratives converge. Visually intoxicating, Gilliam offers up a jocular meditation on the pervasive influence of myths, the corrupting nature of power and – particularly relevant to this singular director – the insanity of the filmmaking process.

    “Bears the hallmarks of this director at his broadest, nuttiest, and most extreme, with unhinged performances, overt symbolism, and a cacophonous story that has the logic of a thousand dreams happening simultaneously. It is an uncompromising work”-Village Voice

    KNIFE + HEART

    Director Yann Gonzalez/ France/ 102 min


    It’s the summer of 1979 and in the streets of Paris, France, a serial killer is on the loose. But Anne — played by radiant French pop superstar Vanessa Paradis —  isn’t aware of this yet. Instead, she is sulking over her breakup with Loïs, her lover and the editor of the third-rate gay porn Anne produces. In an attempt to win her back, she decides to shoot her most ambitious film yet, with the full support of her flamboyant best friend Archibald. But Anne gets more than she bargained for when one of her actors is brutally murdered and she gets caught up in a bizarre investigation.

    Making her way through dimly lit streets, busy sets, and sweaty clubs to do the job of the ineffectual investigators, Anne is accompanied by a killer retro score composed by French electronic band M83, only one of the many aesthetic details director Yann Gonzalez carefully chose for his vibrant ode to ’70s horror cult classics.

    Shot on 35mm and featuring a killer retro score from M83, Yann Gonzalez’s KNIFE+HEART is an ultra-stylish and blood-soaked ode to ’70s-era De Palma, Argento, and Friedkin.

    Official selection: Cannes Film Festival – Official Competition; Fantastic Fest; AFI Fest

    NY TIMES CRITICS PICK “packs in plenty of cinema acrobatics and spectacle without ever feeling out of control, even as it morphs into a far-fetched whodunit. Gonzalez contains his love of screen excess with a deliberation that never feels contrived or cheap.”-Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

    “Fantastic...This magical, erotic, disco-tinged horror-thriller is like cinematic candy.”

    -Los Angeles Times

    “It's Hilarious and haunting and genuinely beautiful”–FilmThreat

    The Wolfsonian–FIU and Miami Beach Cinematheque are teaming up for a summer of art and film with an Art Deco spin! From drama to cult horror and even a musical romance, we’re bringing you Tinseltown talkies from the 1930s to look at how some of Hollywood’s heavyweight directors Deco-fied their elegant, streamlined sets. Join us on select Sundays for a 4pm guided tour of Deco: Luxury to Mass Market at the museum, followed by a perfectly paired film screening at 5pm across the street at the theater.

    FLYING DOWN TO RIO Danish program, 1933. #MBCarchive

    Some say it’s a masterpiece, others claim it was an elaborate advertisement for Pan-Am. In the second film of our Deco series, Thornton Freeland’s 1933 musical Flying Down to Rio, a young couple explores a complicated attraction first in Miami, and then in the air. With the debut pairing of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, some in-flight piano playing, and an aerial ballet with chorus girls, Flying Down to Rio is sure to impress. Learn about Streamline Moderne through a 4pm tour of Deco: Luxury to Mass Market at The Wolfsonian before experiencing Flying Down to Rio at the Cinematheque at 5pm.

    CREATURE FROM

    THE BLACK LAGOON

    In 3/D!

    Directed by JACK ARNOLD/1954/79mins.

    With Richard Carlson, Julia Adams, Richard Denning,

    And RICOU BROWNING as the underwater Gill Man

    A research team working in the Amazon comes across a fossilized claw of a sea creature. What they don’t realize is that a living creature exists in the waters (actually mostly Wakulla Springs Florida standing in for the Amazon). That creature made 3/D history and went on to also star in two sequels.

    In classic Beauty and the Beast fashion, the creature (Ricou Browning) falls for the attractive female member of the team Kay (Julia Adams), demonstrating eerie but beautiful affection in the now legendary swimming scene, with Kay unaware that the creature is following and mirroring her every move from below.

    With Ray Milland, Grace Kelly, Robert Cummings

    DIAL M FOR MURDER Japanese program, 1953. #MBCarchive

    It is apropos that “the Master of Suspense” joined the 3/D bandwagon, since he was also master of re-inventing his reputation as trends of the decade ruled at the box office. The magical combination of Hitchcockian suspense paired with modern in-your-lap 3/D made one his most beloved classics even more memorable. A story of blackmail and murder revolving around a tennis player and his wife becomes much more fun in three dimensions.

    Newly Restored in 3-D by 3-D Film Archive from 4K scans by Paramount Pictures Archives! The Maze is a 1953 atmospheric horror film in 3-D, directed by William Cameron Menzies (Invaders from Mars, Things to Come) and starring Richard Carlson (The Magnetic Monster) as Scotsman Gerald MacTeam (Carlson) who abruptly breaks off his engagement to pretty Kitty Murray (Veronica Hurst) after receiving word of his uncle's death and inheriting a mysterious castle in the Scottish Highlands. Kitty refuses to accept the broken engagement and travels with her aunt (Katherine Emery) to the castle. When they arrive, they discover that Gerald has suddenly aged and his manner has changed significantly. After a series of mysterious events occur in both the castle and the hedge maze outside, they invite a group of friends, including a doctor, to the castle, hoping they can help Gerald with whatever ails him. Menzies was known for his very dimensional style, focusing many shots in layers – The Maze was his final film as production designer and director.
