    IN THE SHADOW OF WOMEN

    (L’ombre des femmes)

    Directed by PHILIPPE GARREL/France/2015/73mins.

    With Stanislas Merhar, Clotilde Courau, Jean Pommier, Lena Paugam


    The new film by the great Philippe Garrel (previously seen at the NYFF with Regular Lovers in 2005 and Jealousy in 2013) is a close look at infidelity—not merely the fact of it, but the particular, divergent ways in which it’s experienced and understood by men and women. Stanislas Merhar and Clotilde Courau are Pierre and Manon, a married couple working in fragile harmony on Pierre’s documentary film projects, the latest of which is a portrait of a resistance fighter (Jean Pommier). When Pierre takes a lover (Lena Paugam), he feels entitled to do so, and he treats both wife and mistress with disengagement bordering on disdain; when Manon catches Pierre in the act, her immediate response is to find common ground with her husband. Garrel is an artist of intimacies and emotional ecologies, and with In the Shadow of Women he has added narrative intricacy and intrigue to his toolbox. The result is an exquisite jewel of a film. (In French with English subtitles).

    OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cannes Film Festival Director’s Fortnight

    “A tightly focused romantic drama that exudes the narrative terseness of a good short story and the lucid craftsmanship of a filmmaker in full command of the medium.”–Scott Foundas, Variety

    “transforms in its final reel from an ironic divertissement to a work of considerable feeling and intensity.”–Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

    EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO

    Directed by PETER GREENAWAY/UK/2015/104mins.

    With Elmer Bäck, Luis Alberti, Maya Zapata


    In 1931, at the height of his artistic powers, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein travels to Mexico to shoot a new film to be titled Que Viva Mexico. Freshly rejected by Hollywood and under increasing pressure to return to Stalinist Russia, Eisenstein arrives at the city of Guanajuato. Chaperoned by his guide Palomino Cañedo, he vulnerably experiences the ties between Eros and Thanatos, sex and death, happy to create their effects in cinema, troubled to suffer them in life.

    Peter Greenaway’s film explores the mind of a creative genius facing the desires and fears of love, sex and death through ten passionate days that helped shape the rest of the career of one of the greatest masters of Cinema.

    WINNER: Best Director International Film Festival of India

    Ocana Award Seville International Film Festival

    Seattle Film Festival Best Director Special Mention

    “AN EYE OPENING LOOK AT ONE OF CINEMA’S MOST RESPECTED FIGURES..Set in Mexico during the “10 days that shook” Russia’s greatest silent filmmaker, “Eisenstein in Guanajuato” marks Peter Greenaway’s raucous attempt to capture his all-time cinema idol at his moment of greatest personal discovery and deepest professional frustration…Determined to breathe fresh life into a medium he insists has scarcely evolved in the 90 years since Sergei Eisenstein made “Strike,” Greenaway has wrought an outrageously unconventional and deliriously profane biopic that could take decades to be duly appreciated.”-Peter Debruge, Variety

    The Films of TODD HAYNES

    Alternate Heavens

    SAFE

    Directed by TODD HAYNES/1995/119mins.

    With Julianne Moore, Xander Berkeley, Dean Norris

    Produced by CHRISTINE VACHON


    Julianne Moore gives a breakthrough performance as Carol White, a Los Angeles housewife in the late 1980s who comes down with a debilitating illness. After the doctors she sees can give her no clear diagnosis, she comes to believe that she has frighteningly extreme environmental allergies. A profoundly unsettling work from the great American director Todd Haynes, Safe functions on multiple levels: as a prescient commentary on self-help culture, as a metaphor for the AIDS crisis, as a drama about class and social estrangement, and as a horror film about what you cannot see. This revelatory drama was named the best film of the 1990s in a Village Voice poll of more than fifty critics.-Criterion Collection

    EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO

    Directed by PETER GREENAWAY/UK/2015/104mins.

    With Elmer Bäck, Luis Alberti, Maya Zapata


    In 1931, at the height of his artistic powers, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein travels to Mexico to shoot a new film to be titled Que Viva Mexico. Freshly rejected by Hollywood and under increasing pressure to return to Stalinist Russia, Eisenstein arrives at the city of Guanajuato. Chaperoned by his guide Palomino Cañedo, he vulnerably experiences the ties between Eros and Thanatos, sex and death, happy to create their effects in cinema, troubled to suffer them in life.

    Peter Greenaway’s film explores the mind of a creative genius facing the desires and fears of love, sex and death through ten passionate days that helped shape the rest of the career of one of the greatest masters of Cinema.

    Inspired by the life of David Bowie, Velvet Goldmine is also a tribute to glam rock of the 1970’s. It's been 10 years since glam-rock superstar Brian Slade (Meyers) faked his own death and vanished from the spotlight. Now it's the job of an investigative reporter to locate this living legend and uncover the truth behind his disappearance. Through the course of Stuart's investigation, you're taken for a wild all-access guided tour back into a vibrant music scene for an uncompromising look at the flamboyance and excesses of its larger-than-life stars.

    Saul Ausländer is a Hungarian member of the Sonderkommando, the group of Jewish prisoners isolated from the camp and forced to assist the Nazis in the machinery of large-scale extermination. While working in one of the crematoriums, Saul discovers the body of a boy he takes for his son. As the Sonderkommando plans a rebellion, Saul decides to carry out an impossible task: save the child's body from the flames, find a rabbi to recite the mourner's Kaddish and offer the boy a proper burial.

    EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO

    Directed by PETER GREENAWAY/UK/2015/104mins.

    With Elmer Bäck, Luis Alberti, Maya Zapata


    In 1931, at the height of his artistic powers, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein travels to Mexico to shoot a new film to be titled Que Viva Mexico. Freshly rejected by Hollywood and under increasing pressure to return to Stalinist Russia, Eisenstein arrives at the city of Guanajuato. Chaperoned by his guide Palomino Cañedo, he vulnerably experiences the ties between Eros and Thanatos, sex and death, happy to create their effects in cinema, troubled to suffer them in life.

    Peter Greenaway’s film explores the mind of a creative genius facing the desires and fears of love, sex and death through ten passionate days that helped shape the rest of the career of one of the greatest masters of Cinema.

    With Géza Röhrig, Levente Molnár, Urs Rechn, Todd Charmont,

    Sándor Zsótér, Marcin Czarnik, Amitai Kedar


    Saul Ausländer is a Hungarian member of the Sonderkommando, the group of Jewish prisoners isolated from the camp and forced to assist the Nazis in the machinery of large-scale extermination. While working in one of the crematoriums, Saul discovers the body of a boy he takes for his son. As the Sonderkommando plans a rebellion, Saul decides to carry out an impossible task: save the child's body from the flames, find a rabbi to recite the mourner's Kaddish and offer the boy a proper burial.

    “NO MATTER HOW MANY HOLOCAUST FILMS YOU’VE SEEN, YOU’VE NOT SEEN ONE LIKE THIS”-Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

    “A MASTERFUL EXERCISE in narrative deprivation and sensory overload that recasts familiar horrors in daringly existential terms.”-Justin Chang, Variety

    “Röhrig isn’t an experienced actor. In fact, he’s a poet and a former kindergarten teacher, living in the Bronx. But that could be what makes the performance so magnetic.”-Stephanie Zacharek, Time

    After many years as an officially sanctioned Oscar Night® party, MBC is taking it easy this year on the twenty third anniversary of our organization with a home-style casual event. All you have to do to come is become a member, or renew/extend. You can do that online or even better, in person at MBC. Then RSVP for the party (every person needs to be a member), and bring what you want to eat and drink. This year there is no sponsored anything, and no price! See you there!

    MBC MEMBERS ONLY RSVP to the left

    (click where it says "purchase tickets",

    but the price is zero, if you are a member! Every person must be a member. MBC Members have the option in February to ADD a spouse/partner/friend member for $40 to the left!)

     

    You can BECOME A MEMBER HERE!

    (THEN RSVP after obtaining membership)

     

    (This event is not associated with the

    Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences)
