    HAL

    Documentary by AMY SCOTT/2018/90mins.

    With Judd Apatow, Rosanna Arquette, Beau Bridges, Jeff Bridges, Lisa Cholodenko, Caleb Deschanel, Pablo Ferro, Jane Fonda, Louis Gossett Jr., Lee Grant, Dustin Hoffman and more!


    Although Hal Ashby directed a remarkable string of acclaimed, widely admired classics throughout the 1970s - HAROLD AND MAUDE, THE LAST DETAIL, SHAMPOO, COMING HOME, BEING THERE—he is often overlooked amid the crowd of luminaries from his generation. Amy Scott’s exuberant portrait explores that curious oversight, using rare archival materials, interviews, personal letters, and audio recordings to reveal a passionate, obsessive artist. Ashby was a Hollywood director who constantly clashed with Hollywood, but also a unique soul with an unprecedented insight into the human condition and an unmatched capacity for good. His films were an elusive blend of honesty, irreverence, humor, and humanity. Through the heartrending and inspiring HAL, you feel buoyed by Ashby’s love of people and of cinema, a little like walking on water.


    “IT’S A CONSISTANTALY ENGAGING TRIP”-Manohla Dargis, New York Times

    “One of the comparatively unsung luminaries of 1970s American cinema receives a very fine tribute in HAL, an in-depth look at director Hal Ashby. A MOST WELCOLME REASSESSMENT OF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT FIGURES IN 1970s HOLLYWOOD”-Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter

    “Sheds new light on a master filmmaker who occupies a place in the pantheon alongside Coppola, Scorsese, De Palma, and Spielberg.”-Jeremy Smith, BIRTH.MOVIES.DEATH

    MBC Interactive Archive Retrospective:

    Highlights of World Cinema

    Miami Premiere of the digital restoration!

    1940s

    Val Lewton Horror

    CAT PEOPLE

    Directed by JACQUES TOURNEUR/Produced by VAL LEWTON/1942/73mins.

    With Simone Simon, Kent Smith, Tom Conway


    Publicity still for CAT PEOPLE, 1942, autographed by Simone Simon. #MBCarchive

    The first of the horror films producer Val Lewton made for RKO Pictures redefined the genre by leaving its most frightening terrors to its audience’s imagination. Simone Simon stars as a Serbian émigré in Manhattan who believes that, because of an ancient curse, any physical intimacy with the man she loves (Kent Smith) will turn her into a feline predator. Lewton, a consummate producer-auteur who oversaw every aspect of his projects, found an ideal director in Jacques Tourneur, a chiaroscuro stylist adept at keeping viewers off-kilter with startling compositions and psychological innuendo. Together, they eschewed the canned effects of earlier monster movies in favor of shocking with subtle shadows and creative audio cues. One of the studio’s most successful movies of the 1940s, Cat People raised the creature feature to new heights of sophistication and mystery.

    “AS IMPORTANT AS CITIZEN KANE IN THE MATURATION OF AMERICAN CINEMA”-Martin Scorsese

    “More a film about unreasoning fear than the supernatural, this work demonstrates what a filmmaker can accomplish when he substitutes taste and intelligence for special effects.”-Don Druker, Chicago Reader

    Miami Premiere Engagement!

    I AM NOT A WITCH

    Directed by RUNGANO NYONI/2018/France/Germany/UK/93mins.

    With Benfors ‘Wee Do, Boyd Banda, Kalunda Banda


    In her BAFTA awarding-winning debut feature, Rungano Nyoni crafts a satiric feminist fairy-tale set in present-day Zambia. When 9-year old orphan Shula is accused of witchcraft, she is exiled to a witch camp run by Mr. Banda, a corrupt and inept government official. Tied to the ground by a white ribbon, Shula is told that she will turn into a goat if she tries to escape. As the only child witch, Shula quickly becomes a local star and the adults around her exploit her supposed powers for financial gain. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision – whether to resign herself to life on the camp, or take a risk for freedom. A hit at over 50 international festivals, I AM NOT A WITCH is a must-see for anyone interested in New African Cinema and contemporary female filmmakers.

    (Documentary Jury Prize)

    HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING,

    THIS EVENING


    Documentary by RAMELL ROSS/2018/1hr, 16mins.

    An inspired and intimate portrait of a place and its people, Hale County This Morning, This Evening looks at the lives of Daniel Collins and Quincy Bryant, two young African American men from rural Hale County, Alabama, over the course of five years. Collins attends college in search of opportunity while Bryant becomes a father to an energetic son in an open-ended, poetic form that privileges the patiently observed interstices of their lives. The audience is invited to experience the mundane and monumental, birth and death, the quotidian and the sublime. These moments combine to communicate the region’s deep culture and provide glimpses of the complex ways the African American community’s collective image is integrated into America’s visual imagination.

    WINNER: Special Jury Prize, Documentary, Sundance Film Festival

    Full Frame Documentary Festival Grand Jury Prize

    Montclair Film Festival Best Documentary

    "ONE OF THE BEST DOCUMENTARIES OF 2018... IT MUST BE SEEN ON THE BIG SCREEN...Hale County This Morning, This Evening emerges sweeping and grand, an elusive, awesome American fable."

    I AM NOT A WITCH

    Directed by RUNGANO NYONI/2018/France/Germany/UK/93mins.

    With Benfors ‘Wee Do, Boyd Banda, Kalunda Banda


    In her BAFTA awarding-winning debut feature, Rungano Nyoni crafts a satiric feminist fairy-tale set in present-day Zambia. When 9-year old orphan Shula is accused of witchcraft, she is exiled to a witch camp run by Mr. Banda, a corrupt and inept government official. Tied to the ground by a white ribbon, Shula is told that she will turn into a goat if she tries to escape. As the only child witch, Shula quickly becomes a local star and the adults around her exploit her supposed powers for financial gain. Soon she is forced to make a difficult decision – whether to resign herself to life on the camp, or take a risk for freedom. A hit at over 50 international festivals, I AM NOT A WITCH is a must-see for anyone interested in New African Cinema and contemporary female filmmakers.

    HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING,

    THIS EVENING


    Documentary by RAMELL ROSS/2018/1hr, 16mins.

    An inspired and intimate portrait of a place and its people, Hale County This Morning, This Evening looks at the lives of Daniel Collins and Quincy Bryant, two young African American men from rural Hale County, Alabama, over the course of five years. Collins attends college in search of opportunity while Bryant becomes a father to an energetic son in an open-ended, poetic form that privileges the patiently observed interstices of their lives. The audience is invited to experience the mundane and monumental, birth and death, the quotidian and the sublime. These moments combine to communicate the region’s deep culture and provide glimpses of the complex ways the African American community’s collective image is integrated into America’s visual imagination.

    WINNER: Special Jury Prize, Documentary, Sundance Film Festival

    MILDRED PIERCE US herald, 1945, from the #MBCarchive

    A mother's love can lead to murder! Joan Crawford delivers an Academy Award-winning performance as a woman clawing her way to success to provide her daughters with everything she lacks.

    “THIS GREAT FILM IS A MORE SUBTLE, NUANCED BEAST THAN EXPECTED”-David Jenkins, Little White Lies

    “The film is a chilling demonstration of the fact that, in a patriarchal society, when a woman steps outside the home the end result may be disastrous.”-Time Out

    “You don't think of Michael Curtiz, the great house director of Warner Bros. spectacles and prestige pictures, as one of the great noir directors but the opening twenty minutes or so is a master class in film noir directing...”-Sean Axmaker, Seanax.com

    MONROVIA, INDIANA

    Documentary directed FREDERICK WISEMAN/2018/2hr, 23mins.


    MONROVIA, INDIANA explores a small town in rural, mid-America and illustrates how values like community service, duty, spiritual life, generosity and authenticity are formed, experienced and lived along with conflicting stereotypes. The film gives a complex and nuanced view of daily life in Monrovia and provides some understanding of a way of life whose influence and force have not always been recognized or understood in the big cities on the east and west coasts of America and in other countries.

    "MONROVIA, INDIANA IS AN IMMERSIVE WONDER, thanks to Wiseman's masterful ability to assemble images that lead from one painterly visual to the next."Eric Kohn, Indiewire, Full Review

    "THIS IS CLASSIC WISEMAN, a film that takes us into the heart of a community and reveals its inner workings, comforts, fractures and traumas."Lee Marshall, Screen International, Full Review

    "As always with Frederick Wiseman, it's the quotidian gestures that haunt one in Monrovia, Indiana."Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine, Full Review
