    Florida Exclusive Premiere Engagement!

     “Cinephile’s Choice”

    Occasionally MBC will give audiences an opportunity to see some of the most challenging, provocative, acclaimed, and masterful international films of the year that usually do not get a wide theatrical release, but deserve attention. This is one of them. It is rarely screened in the US because of its running time, (4 hours), but that should not be a deterrent against seeing one of the very best films of the year. It will be presented with a 15 minute intermission with complimentary NESPRESSO.

    NORTE, THE END OF HISTORY

    (Norte, hangganen ng kasaysayan)

     

    Directed by LAV DIAZ/Phillipines/2013/250mins.

    With Sid Lucero, Angeli Bayani, Archie Alemania

     

     

     

    Lav Diaz’s epic reimagining of Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment is both an intimate human drama and a cosmic treatise on the origin of evil. Unfolding across the sun drenched fields and dark city streets of the Filipino island of Luzon, Norte, The End of History is a tale of murder, hate and hope from one of the world’s most uncompromising cinematic visionaries. An embittered law student commits a brutal double murder; a family man takes the fall and is forced into a harsh prison sentence; a mother and her two children wander the countryside looking for some kind of redemption.

    SALVO

    Directed by FABIO GRASSADONIA & ANTONIO PIAZZA
    Italy/2013/104mins.

    With Saleh Bakri, Luigi Lo Cascio, Sara Serraiocco

    The most unusually expressionistic feature film of the year, SALVO was the sensational winner of this year’s Cannes Film Festival Critic’s Week. A henchman for the Sicilian Mafia, Salvo (Saleh Bakri, The Band’s Visit, The Time That Remains) is solitary, cold, and ruthless. When he sneaks into a house to eliminate someone from a rival Mafia clan, he discovers Rita (Sara Serraiocco), a young blind girl who powerlessly stands by while her brother is assassinated. When Salvo decides to spare her life, something extraordinary happens. From then on, these two beings, both haunted by the world they belong to, are linked together forever.

    BOYHOOD

    Directed by RICHARD LINKLATER/2014/166mins.

    With Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater

     

     

    Filmed over twelve years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette and Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha. BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past, and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking of our own journey.

    Miami Premiere!

    THE DOG

    Documentary by ALISON BERG and FRANÇOIS KERAUDREN/2014/100mins.

     

    This dog is no ordinary dog, he’s John Wojtowicz whose attempted robbery of a Brooklyn bank to finance his male lover’s sex-reassignment surgery earned him a week in the media glare and 5 years of anonymity in a Federal penitentiary. With the 1975 release of Dog Day Afternoon and thanks to Al Pacino’s hugely entertaining performance, the mouthy urban renegade who chanted

    Attica! Attica! and faced down an entire police force was embraced by an angry new generation of disenfranchised, a working class hero to the downwardly mobile was born.

    OFFICIAL SELECTION:

    Miami Film Festival

    “THE REAL STORY BEHIND DOG DAY AFTERNOON IS EVEN WILDER!”-Blumberg

    “One of the most remarkable retellings of someone’s life caught on camera in recent years”-Daniel Pratt, Exclaim

     

    and

     

    DOG DAY AFTERNOON

    Directed by SIDNEY LUMET/1975/125mins.

    With Al Pacino, John Cazale, Chris Sarandon,

    Charles Durning, Penelope Allen, Carol Kane

     

     

    Still the standard by which many

    New York movies are compared, Lumet’s terrific telling of a true-story Brooklyn bank robbery gone way out of hand is just as captivating as ever. In an Oscar nominated role, Al Pacino is winning as Sonny, the young man leading the job to fund his girlfriend’s sex-change operation (Chris Sarandon, also Oscar nominated) and becoming a media sensation in the process. With John Cazale and Charles Durning lending first-rate supporting performances.

    WINNER: Academy Award Best Original Screenplay

    Los Angeles Film Critics Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director

    “Sidney Lumet is a master filmmaker…Here he has created a film made brilliant by its deeply seen characters, in a plot that could have obviously been cheapened and exploited but is always human and true.”-Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

     

    Hosted by film critic Hans Morgenstern

    Film critic and creative director of the film and music website Independent Ethos (www.indieethos.wordpress.com), Hans' work has appeared in Hollywood.com, The Miami New Times, The Miami Herald, and other prominent publications. He is a voting member of the Florida Films Critics Circle.

    JEALOUSY

    (la jalousie)

    Directed by PHILLIPPE GARREL/France/2014/77mins.

    With Louis Garrel, Anna Mouglalis

     

     

     

    One of the major French filmmakers of the post-New Wave, Philippe Garrel has belatedly been recognized as a master in America, and Jealousy may be his most accessible film in nearly 50 years of filmmaking. Shot in lustrous, widescreen black and white by the great Willy Kurant (Masculin Feminin), the film opens with a man leaving his wife and daughter and, in a series of brief conversations, observed gestures, chance encounters and impulsive acts, tells the story of the relationships that flounder and thrive in the wake of this decision. The director casts his son and frequent star Louis Garrel as the husband who moves into a garret apartment with his actress girlfriend (Anna Mouglalis) and struggles with fidelity and the temptation to give up their art for an easier life. Shot with Garrel’s celebrated sensitivity and attention to faces, bodies, hands and the intricacies of the human heart, Jealousy is an especially intimate, deeply poignant and never less than enthralling tale of love, temptation and betrayal. (In French with English subtitles).

    OFFICIAL SELECTION:

    Venice, Toronto, New York Film Festivals

    “Jealousy is a work of rueful, retrospective wisdom, but ITS ROUGH-EDGED BEAUTY IS VERY MUCH OF THE MOMENT-there, Garrel seizes the day.”-The New Yorker

    “PURE, SIMPLE, AND HEARTBREAKING in its playing out,moment by moment, of love and betrayal.”-Stuart Klawans, The Nation

    With Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater

     

     

    Filmed over twelve years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette and Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha. BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past, and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking of our own journey.

    JEALOUSY

    (la jalousie)

    Directed by PHILLIPPE GARREL/France/2014/77mins.

    With Louis Garrel, Anna Mouglalis

     

     

     

    One of the major French filmmakers of the post-New Wave, Philippe Garrel has belatedly been recognized as a master in America, and Jealousy may be his most accessible film in nearly 50 years of filmmaking. Shot in lustrous, widescreen black and white by the great Willy Kurant (Masculin Feminin), the film opens with a man leaving his wife and daughter and, in a series of brief conversations, observed gestures, chance encounters and impulsive acts, tells the story of the relationships that flounder and thrive in the wake of this decision. The director casts his son and frequent star Louis Garrel as the husband who moves into a garret apartment with his actress girlfriend (Anna Mouglalis) and struggles with fidelity and the temptation to give up their art for an easier life. Shot with Garrel’s celebrated sensitivity and attention to faces, bodies, hands and the intricacies of the human heart, Jealousy is an especially intimate, deeply poignant and never less than enthralling tale of love, temptation and betrayal. (In French with English subtitles).

    Occasionally MBC will give audiences an opportunity to see some of the most challenging, provocative, acclaimed, and masterful international films of the year that usually do not get a wide theatrical release, but deserve attention. This is one of them. It is rarely screened in the US because of its running time, (4 hours), but that should not be a deterrent against seeing one of the very best films of the year. It will be presented with a 15 minute intermission with complimentary NESPRESSO...

    NORTE, THE END OF HISTORY

    (Norte, hangganen ng kasaysayan)

     

    Directed by LAV DIAZ/Phillipines/2013/250mins.

    With Sid Lucero, Angeli Bayani, Archie Alemania

     

     

     

    Lav Diaz’s epic reimagining of Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment is both an intimate human drama and a cosmic treatise on the origin of evil. Unfolding across the sun drenched fields and dark city streets of the Filipino island of Luzon, Norte, The End of History is a tale of murder, hate and hope from one of the world’s most uncompromising cinematic visionaries. An embittered law student commits a brutal double murder; a family man takes the fall and is forced into a harsh prison sentence; a mother and her two children wander the countryside looking for some kind of redemption. (In Tagalog and English with English subtitles)

    US Theatrical Premiere! One Night Only!

     

    The latest film by David Lynch:

    DURAN DURAN: UNSTAGED

     

    Directed by DAVID LYNCH/2011/Released 2014/121mins.

    Featuring all four original members of Duran Duran:

    Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor.

    Special guests include Gerard Way, Beth Ditto, Kelis, Mark Ronson

    The iconic British rock band Duran Duran will take over US movie theaters on Wednesday, September 10th for a one-night-only showing of the film Duran Duran: Unstaged. This movie showcases the band’s concert at the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles, which was part of the American Express Unstaged concert series that celebrated the band’s All You Need Is Now album and world tour. The film was directed by award-winning filmmaker David Lynch (Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive). Lynch has captured the band’s performance in a ground-breaking, creative way that will provide fans with a visually stunning in-theater viewing experience. When it was originally filmed, the director layered images that he had created in advance of the show (live action, animation, special effects, etc.) on top of the band’s performance footage as it was being filmed live. The technique, created an ocular event unlike anything ever seen before.

    “We are all very proud to have worked in partnership with the legendary David Lynch on this project. It was a tremendously rewarding and exhilarating experience, I was particularly delighted by the sausage barbecue sequence during the song Come Undone – something I would never have expected but it works superbly!”...

    “David is a visionary artist, his work is always surprising and beautifully strange – so it was a surreal dream collaboration for us to work with him and to become the subjects of one of his films,” said Nick Rhodes. “When we first discussed the notion of working together, we bonded over a shared desire to create a truly unique live film. I felt confident we could rely upon David to conjure up something stylish, experimental, handmade and innovative. He surpassed all of our wildest expectations.”

    THE PAWNBROKER

    Directed by SIDNEY LUMET/1964/116mins.

    With Rod Steiger, Brock Peters, Geraldine Fitzgerald

     

     

    In a stunning, Oscar-nominated performance, Rod Steiger stars as a German-Jewish Holocaust survivor who operates a small

    East Harlempawnshop, where his daily interactions with the desperate clientele further darken his already jaundiced view of humanity. As he engages in turf warfare with the local pimp (Brock Peters) who uses the shop as a front, Steiger’s haunted memories come flooding back in staccato bursts, rendered by Lumet and editor Ralph Rosenblum in a subliminal style unprecedented in mainstream movies of the time.

    Hosted by David N. Meyer

    Author of The Bee Gees: The Biography and of the acclaimed definitive biography of country rocker Gram Parsons, 20,000 Roads, which was chosen as one of the twenty Best Nonfiction Books of the Year by the Los Angeles Times and one of the top three books of the year by Rolling Stone.

    Documentary directed by YANN ARTUS-BERTRAND/France/2012/90mins.

     

     

    Can we imagine a film that would change the way people look at the ocean? Can we explain simply, to everyone, the greatest natural mystery of our planet? And lastly, can we help our children believe in a better and more sustainable world tomorrow?

    This is the triple challenge of a new cinema adventure signed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and editor- in-chief Michael Pitiot, who brings with him the scientific missions of

    TARA, a unique pool of researchers, oceanographers and biolo- gists from several countries. Thanks to its astonishing photography, the film takes us on a magnificent and unprecedented journey into the heart of the least known regions of our planet.

    JEALOUSY

    (la jalousie)

    Directed by PHILLIPPE GARREL/France/2014/77mins.

    With Louis Garrel, Anna Mouglalis

     

     

     

    One of the major French filmmakers of the post-New Wave, Philippe Garrel has belatedly been recognized as a master in America, and Jealousy may be his most accessible film in nearly 50 years of filmmaking. Shot in lustrous, widescreen black and white by the great Willy Kurant (Masculin Feminin), the film opens with a man leaving his wife and daughter and, in a series of brief conversations, observed gestures, chance encounters and impulsive acts, tells the story of the relationships that flounder and thrive in the wake of this decision. The director casts his son and frequent star Louis Garrel as the husband who moves into a garret apartment with his actress girlfriend (Anna Mouglalis) and struggles with fidelity and the temptation to give up their art for an easier life. Shot with Garrel’s celebrated sensitivity and attention to faces, bodies, hands and the intricacies of the human heart, Jealousy is an especially intimate, deeply poignant and never less than enthralling tale of love, temptation and betrayal. (In French with English subtitles).

    BOYHOOD

    Directed by RICHARD LINKLATER/2014/166mins.

    With Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater

     

     

    Filmed over twelve years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette and Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha. BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past, and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking of our own journey.

    SIDNEY LUMET

    Presented by

    NETWORK

    Directed by SIDNEY LUMET/1975/121mins.

    With Faye Dunaway, Peter Finch, William Holden,

    Beatrice Straight, Robert Duvall, Ned Beatty

     

     

    Likely, Lumet’s best known work and arguably his greatest achievement. Upon learning that he’s to be fired due to his station’s declining popularity, an iconic evening news anchor’s sudden transformation into a ranting demagogue turns the station into a carnival of angry populism, ridiculous radicalism, and, of course, sky-high ratings. The film earned Oscars for scriptwriter Paddy Chayefsky and actors Peter Finch, Faye Dunaway and Beatrice Straight.

     

    WINNER: Academy Award Best Actor and Best Actress,

    Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress

    Los Angeles Film Critics Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay New York Film Critics Best Screenplay

    “In Network, which is rarely thought of as a "director's picture," it is his unobtrusive skill that allows all those different notes and energy levels to exist within the same film. In other hands, the film might have whirled to pieces. In his, it became a touchstone.”-Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

    Juan Barguin is film critic and co-founder of the website Dim The House Lights, (dimthehouselights.com), and his work has appeared in Miami New Times & YAM Magazine.

    CHILD OF GOD

    Directed by JAMES FRANCO/2014/104mins.

    With Scott Haze, Jim Parrack, Tim Blake, James Franco

    Based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy

     

     

    Directed by acclaimed filmmaker James Franco, and based on the chilling novel by Cormac McCarthy (No Country For Old Men), Child of God tells the provocative story of Lester Ballad (Scott Haze, who spent four months living in an isolated cabin and caves in rural Tennessee to prepare for the role), a dispossessed, violent man, attempting to exist outside the social order. Consecutively deprived of parents and housing and driven by famished loneliness, Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation. Set in a small town in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee

    in the 1960s, Child of God is structured in three segments with each segment describing Ballad’s ever-growing isolation of from society and social mores.

    Memphis Directed by Tim Sutton

     

    "In Tim Sutton's second feature, Memphis , the musician Willis Earl Beal plays a blues singer of the same name, who is facing a devastating artistic crisis--composing and performing block. His desperate efforts at self-healing take him on a spiritual journey through the city of the title as he encounters friends, confidants, and religious counsellor's dispensing hard-earned wisdom. Memphis itself plays a leading role in the film, by way of richly textured, sunlight-imbued images of streets and houses, churches and roads. With his loamy mosaic of drifting moods and troubled memories, Sutton offers a pictorial translation of the blues, a vision of an American classicism sheltered by the urban landscape’s mystical embrace.” -Richard Brody, The New Yorker

    OFFICIAL SELECTION: Sundance Film Festival,

    Miami Film Festival

    “Certainly a filmmaker with a distinct vision, taking some cues from the likes of Gus Van Sant or Jim Jarmusch, Sutton is confident in letting his lead command the screen for most of the film.”-Dan Mecca, The Film Stage

    "What continues to keep Memphis engaging is Seth Bomse's rhythmic edit and the stunning musical accompaniment - intertwined with a score by Beal himself - that feel as evocative of the place as they do the man.”-Ben Nicholson, Cinevue

    “THIS IS AMBITIOUS, CHALLENGING FILMMAKING, ELEVATED BY FRANCO’S COMPASSION AND HAZE’S REVELATORY ACTING…Franco is out there trying something, balancing literature and cinema in a tightrope act that is never less than exciting to watch.”-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

     

    “Moving right along from his well-received As I Lay Dying, James Franco hurls himself into the work of one of Faulkner’s spiritual descendants… FRANCO HAS EMERGED WITH AN EXTREMELY FAITHFUL, SUITABLY RAW BUT STILL RELATIVELY HEMMED-IN ADAPTATION.”-Justin Chang, Variety

    Memphis Directed by Tim Sutton

     

    "In Tim Sutton's second feature, Memphis , the musician Willis Earl Beal plays a blues singer of the same name, who is facing a devastating artistic crisis--composing and performing block. His desperate efforts at self-healing take him on a spiritual journey through the city of the title as he encounters friends, confidants, and religious counsellor's dispensing hard-earned wisdom. Memphis itself plays a leading role in the film, by way of richly textured, sunlight-imbued images of streets and houses, churches and roads. With his loamy mosaic of drifting moods and troubled memories, Sutton offers a pictorial translation of the blues, a vision of an American classicism sheltered by the urban landscape’s mystical embrace.” -Richard Brody, The New Yorker

    OFFICIAL SELECTION: Sundance Film Festival,

    Miami Film Festival

    “Certainly a filmmaker with a distinct vision, taking some cues from the likes of Gus Van Sant or Jim Jarmusch, Sutton is confident in letting his lead command the screen for most of the film.”-Dan Mecca, The Film Stage

    "What continues to keep Memphis engaging is Seth Bomse's rhythmic edit and the stunning musical accompaniment - intertwined with a score by Beal himself - that feel as evocative of the place as they do the man.”-Ben Nicholson, Cinevue

    CHILD OF GOD

    Directed by JAMES FRANCO/2014/104mins.

    With Scott Haze, Jim Parrack, Tim Blake, James Franco

    Based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy

     

     

    Directed by acclaimed filmmaker James Franco, and based on the chilling novel by Cormac McCarthy (No Country For Old Men), Child of God tells the provocative story of Lester Ballad (Scott Haze, who spent four months living in an isolated cabin and caves in rural Tennessee to prepare for the role), a dispossessed, violent man, attempting to exist outside the social order. Consecutively deprived of parents and housing and driven by famished loneliness, Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation. Set in a small town in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee

    in the 1960s, Child of God is structured in three segments with each segment describing Ballad’s ever-growing isolation of from society and social mores.

    WINNER: Breakthrough Performer Award
