    “Best of the Cannes Film Festival”

    (WINNER: Palme d’Or)

    SHOPLIFTERS

    (Manbiki kazoku)

    Directed by HIROKAZU KORE-EDA/Japan/2018/2hr, 1min.

    With Lily Franky, Ando Sakura,  Matsuoka Mayu, Kiki Kirin


    Master Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-Eda’s latest film is one of his strongest and most heartfelt, after a long successful career creating modern classics. On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love—not blood—that defines a family.

    WINNER: Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or

    International Cinephile Society Awards Prix du Jury

    Vancouver Film Festival Most Popular International Film

    Munich Film Festival Best International Film

    “A tENDER ENSEMBLE PIECE WHOSE SKILLFUL PERFORMANCES DOVETAIL INTO A PERFECTLY SYMPHONIC WHOLE, "Shoplifters" is a work of such emotional delicacy and formal modesty that you're barely prepared when the full force of what it's doing suddenly knocks you sideways.”-Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

    “AT ONCE CHARMING AND HEART-WRENCHING, this exquisitely performed film will steal the hearts of both art-house and mainstream audiences.”-Maggie Lee, Variety

    “This small film is A THOUGHTFUL ADDITION TO HIS PARABLES about happy and unhappy families (Nobody Knows, After the Storm), studded with memorable characters and believable performances that quietly lead the viewer to reflect on societal values.”-Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

    MBC Interactive Archive Retrospective:

    Highlights of World Cinema

    1950s

    PICKPOCKET

    Directed by ROBERT BRESSON/France/1959/1hr, 16mins.

    With Martin LaSalle, Marika Green, Jean Pélégri

    Vintage French poster from PICKPOCKET, 1959, from the #MBCarchive

    This incomparable story of crime and redemption from the French master Robert Bresson follows Michel, a young pickpocket who spends his days working the streets, subway cars, and train stations of Paris. As his compulsive pursuit of the thrill of stealing grows, however, so does his fear that his luck is about to run out. A cornerstone of the career of this most economical and profoundly spiritual of filmmakers, Pickpocket is an elegantly crafted, tautly choreographed study of humanity in all its mischief and grace, the work of a director at the height of his powers. (In French with English subtitles).

    “THE MOST INFLUENTIAL FILM ON MY CREATIVE LIFE”-Director Paul Schrader

    “There is incredible buried passion in a Bresson film, but he doesn't find it necessary to express it. Also great tension and excitement, tightly reined in. Consider a sequence in which a gang of pickpockets, including Michel, works on a crowded train. The camera uses closeups of hands, wallets, pockets and faces in a perfectly timed ballet of images that explain, like a documentary, how pickpockets work. How one distracts, the second takes the wallet and quickly passes it to the third, who moves away. The primary rule: The man who takes the money never holds it. The three men work the train back and forth, at one point even smoothly returning a victim's empty wallet to his pocket. Their work has the timing, grace and precision of a ballet. They work as one person, with one mind. And there is a kind of exhibitionism in the way they show their moves to the camera but hide them from their victims.”-Roger Ebert

    With a pre-recorded intro by director Paul Schrader

    “Best of the Cannes Film Festival”

    (WINNER: Palme d’Or)

    SHOPLIFTERS

    (Manbiki kazoku)

    Directed by HIROKAZU KORE-EDA/Japan/2018/2hr, 1min.

    With Lily Franky, Ando Sakura,  Matsuoka Mayu, Kiki Kirin


    Master Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-Eda’s latest film is one of his strongest and most heartfelt, after a long successful career creating modern classics. On the margins of Tokyo, a dysfunctional band of outsiders are united by fierce loyalty, a penchant for petty theft and playful grifting. When the young son is arrested, secrets are exposed that upend their tenuous, below-the-radar existence and test their quietly radical belief that it is love—not blood—that defines a family.

    WINNER: Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or

    International Cinephile Society Awards Prix du Jury

    Vancouver Film Festival Most Popular International Film

    Munich Film Festival Best International Film

    “A tENDER ENSEMBLE PIECE WHOSE SKILLFUL PERFORMANCES DOVETAIL INTO A PERFECTLY SYMPHONIC WHOLE, "Shoplifters" is a work of such emotional delicacy and formal modesty that you're barely prepared when the full force of what it's doing suddenly knocks you sideways.”-Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

    “AT ONCE CHARMING AND HEART-WRENCHING, this exquisitely performed film will steal the hearts of both art-house and mainstream audiences.”-Maggie Lee, Variety

    “This small film is A THOUGHTFUL ADDITION TO HIS PARABLES about happy and unhappy families (Nobody Knows, After the Storm), studded with memorable characters and believable performances that quietly lead the viewer to reflect on societal values.”-Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

    THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT

    Directed by LARS VON TRIER/Denmark/2018/152mins.

    With Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, Riley Keough


    THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT takes place in 1970s USA. We follow the highly intelligent Jack through five incidents and are introduced to the murders that define Jack’s development as a serial killer.  We experience the story from Jack’s point of view. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. Despite the fact that the final and inevitable police intervention is drawing ever near (which both provokes and puts pressure on Jack) he is – contrary to all logic – set on taking greater and greater chances. Along the way we experience Jack’s descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge – a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and in-depth explanations of, for Jack, dangerous and difficult maneuvers.

    Official Selection: Cannes Film Festival, Special Out of Competition Screening

    “100 ON METACRITIC: The film becomes an even broader consideration of individual fascinations and follies, OF WAYS OF RESPONDING TO ART WITHOUT THE BOUNDARIES OF MORALITY AND REASON.”-Sam C. Mac, Slant Magazine

    “The House That Jack Built is an often-horrifying, sadistic dive into a psychotic internal monologue, with intellectual detours about the nature of art in the world today, and puts considerable effort into stimulating discomfort at key moments. If you meet the work on those terms, or at least accept the challenge of wrestling with impeccable filmmaking that dances across moral barriers, IT’S ALSO POSSIBLY BRILLIANT.”-Eric Kohn, IndieWire

    “Whether there’s any worth to be found in The House That Jack Built will depend on the viewer’s interest in delving deep into von Trier’s tortured psyche. It’s unlikely anyone will empathize with him and it’s certain many will find the film execrable, but THOSE WILLING TO INDULGE HIS EXCESS ARE OFFERED A WEALTH OF FASCINATING MATERIAL.”-Giovanni Marchini Camia, The Film Stage
