    CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA

    Directed by OLIVIER ASSAYAS/France/2014/124mins.

    With Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart

    At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloë Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.

    IRREVERSIBLE

    Directed by GASPAR NOÉ, France/2002/97mins.

    With Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, Albert Dupontel, Phillippe Nahon

    Cinematography by Benoît Debie and Gaspar Noé

    Gaspar Noé's Irreversible utilizes the same storytelling technique used by Christopher Nolan in Memento and Harold Pinter in Betrayal. Consisting of about a dozen scenes, all shot in single takes, Irreversible charts a disturbing night in the life of Marcus (Vincent Cassel), but presents the events in reverse chronological order. The audience eventually learns how the beautiful Alex (Cassel's real-life partner Monica Bellucci) is involved. The film opens with a violent altercation at a gay sex club and works backward to explain how and why the violence occurred. The actors improvised the vast majority of the dialogue starting from a four-page story outline.

    “It would be easy and convenient to dismiss Irreversible as blatant sensationalism. But Noe's bruising film is too artfully crafted to write off as exploitation.”-Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

    “The fact is, the reverse chronology makes Irreversible a film that structurally argues against rape and violence, while ordinary chronology would lead us down a seductive narrative path toward a shocking, exploitative payoff.”-Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times

    JAUJA

    Directed by LISANDRO ALONSO/Argentina/Denmark/2014/109mins.

    With Viggo Mortensen, Diego Roman, Ghita Nørby

    An astonishingly beautiful and gripping Western starring Viggo Mortensen, JAUJA (pronounced how-ha) begins in a remote outpost in Patagonia during the late 1800s.
    Captain Gunnar Dinesen has come from abroad with his fifteen year-old daughter to take an engineering job with the Argentine army. Being the only female in the area, Ingeborg creates quite a stir among the men. She falls in love with a young soldier, and one night they run away together. When Dinesen realizes what has happened, he decides to venture into enemy territory, against his men’s wishes, to find the young couple. Featuring a superb performance from Mortensen, JAUJA (the name suggests a fabled city of riches sought by European explorers) is the story of a man’s desperate search for his daughter, a solitary quest that takes him to a place beyond time, where the past vanishes and the future has no meaning.

    Exclusive Florida Premiere Engagement!

    Tsai Ming-liang’s cult classic finally

    gets US Theatrical release!

     REBELS OF THE NEON GOD

    Directed by TSAI MING-LIANG/Taiwan/1992/2015/106mins.

    With Holger Andersson, Nils Westblom, Viktor Gyllenberg

    Tsai Ming-liang emerged on the world cinema scene in 1992 with his groundbreaking first feature, REBELS OF THE NEON GOD. It is a remarkably impressive first film that hints at the promise of its director: a talent confirmed by Tsai’s equally stunning second feature, VIVE L’AMOUR (Golden Lion, Venice), and continuing to his most recent film, STRAY DOGS, which ranked high on many “best of” lists last year. Though showing such diverse influences as the French New Wave, Wong Kar-wai’s early films—and, yes, REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE—Tsai’s film is most remarkable for introducing his startlingly unique vision to world cinema.

    The loosely structured plot involves Hsiao-kang, a despondent cram school student, who becomes obsessed with young petty thief Ah-tze, after Ah-tze smashes the rearview mirror of a taxi driven by Hsiao-kang’s father. Hsiao-kang stalks Ah-tze and his buddy Ah-ping as they hang out in the film’s iconic arcade (featuring a telling poster of James Dean on the wall) and other locales around Taipei, and ultimately takes his revenge.

    A Miami Film Month Special Screening!

    Presented by the

    Greater Miami Convention & Visitor’s Bureau

    THE RECORD MAN   

    Directed by MARK MOORMANN/2015/109mins.

    Featuring Henry Stone and these artists and songs:  James Brown: Please, Please, Please, Ray Charles: St. Pete Blues, Sam & Dave: Hold On I’m Comin’, George McCrae: Rock Your Baby, wen McCrae: Rockin’ Chair, KC & The Sunshine Band: Get Down Tonight, Benny Latimore: Let’s Straighten It Out, Ray Munnings: Funky Nassau, Timmy Thomas: Why Can’t We Live Together, Jimmie Bo Horne: Dance Across the Floor, Bobby Caldwell: What You Won’t Do For Love, Anita Ward: Ring My Bel…and many more

    THE RECORD MAN is a uniquely American story of how a group of musical underdogs with raw talent and diverse backgrounds, led by the indefatigable determination of one man, Henry Stone, exported the music of Miami to the world.

    Before there was a “music business” there was Henry Stone, “The Record Man”. From distributing records out of his '48 Packard to establishing TK Records as the largest independent label of the 1970s, Henry had an ear for hits. His funky eight-track studio and chart topping family of artists including KC and the Sunshine Band, led to the original Miami Sound and birth of Disco. When his empire collapsed on a baseball field in Chicago in 1979, Henry didn’t miss a beat launching Miami Freestyle.

    (WINNER: FIPRESCI Prize)

    Exclusive Florida Premiere Engagement!

    JAUJA

    Directed by LISANDRO ALONSO/Argentina/Denmark/2014/109mins.

    With Viggo Mortensen, Diego Roman, Ghita Nørby

    An astonishingly beautiful and gripping Western starring Viggo Mortensen, JAUJA (pronounced how-ha) begins in a remote outpost in Patagonia during the late 1800s.
    Captain Gunnar Dinesen has come from abroad with his fifteen year-old daughter to take an engineering job with the Argentine army. Being the only female in the area, Ingeborg creates quite a stir among the men. She falls in love with a young soldier, and one night they run away together. When Dinesen realizes what has happened, he decides to venture into enemy territory, against his men’s wishes, to find the young couple. Featuring a superb performance from Mortensen, JAUJA (the name suggests a fabled city of riches sought by European explorers) is the story of a man’s desperate search for his daughter, a solitary quest that takes him to a place beyond time, where the past vanishes and the future has no meaning.

    Tsai Ming-liang’s cult classic finally

    gets US Theatrical release!

     REBELS OF THE NEON GOD

    Directed by TSAI MING-LIANG/Taiwan/1992/2015/106mins.

    With Holger Andersson, Nils Westblom, Viktor Gyllenberg

    Tsai Ming-liang emerged on the world cinema scene in 1992 with his groundbreaking first feature, REBELS OF THE NEON GOD. It is a remarkably impressive first film that hints at the promise of its director: a talent confirmed by Tsai’s equally stunning second feature, VIVE L’AMOUR (Golden Lion, Venice), and continuing to his most recent film, STRAY DOGS, which ranked high on many “best of” lists last year. Though showing such diverse influences as the French New Wave, Wong Kar-wai’s early films—and, yes, REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE—Tsai’s film is most remarkable for introducing his startlingly unique vision to world cinema.

    The loosely structured plot involves Hsiao-kang, a despondent cram school student, who becomes obsessed with young petty thief Ah-tze, after Ah-tze smashes the rearview mirror of a taxi driven by Hsiao-kang’s father. Hsiao-kang stalks Ah-tze and his buddy Ah-ping as they hang out in the film’s iconic arcade (featuring a telling poster of James Dean on the wall) and other locales around Taipei, and ultimately takes his revenge.

    Miami Premiere of the Director's Cut! 

    ENTER THE VOID

    Directed by GASPAR NOÉ/2009/France/Germany/Italy/161mins.

    With Nathaniel Brown, Paz de la Huerta, Cyril Roy

    Cinemtography by Benoît Debie

    One of the most anticipated cinematic events of the year, Gaspar Noe's ENTER THE VOID is a visionary cinematic thrill ride that’s riveted audiences at the Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and SXSW film festivals. At Cannes, Manohla Dargis of The New York Times called it "an exceptional work... What largely distinguishes it, beyond the stunning cinematography, is that this is the work of an artist who’s trying to show us something we haven’t seen before…Mr. Noé, in other words, gets into your body..." The long-awaited follow up to his controversial IRREVERSIBLE, ENTER THE VOID is a cinematic roller-coaster ride that according to Andrew O'Hehir of Salon.com: "represents a revolutionary break from ordinary movie storytelling." Nathaniel Brown and Paz de la Huerta star in the visceral journey set against the thumping, neon club scene of Tokyo, which hurls the viewer into an astonishing trip through life, death, and the universally wonderful and horrible moments between.

    "AN EXCEPTIONAL WORK...He wants to unsettle and disturb you, not only in the space between your ears, but in the rest of you, too, so that you feel your heart thumping in your chest and the sweat popping on your temples…PURE CINEMA"Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

    "There's no way to summarize the paranoid, terrifying and surpassingly beautiful lysergic odyssey between life and death on which Noé takes us...a revolutionary break from ordinary movie storytelling.” “This is a daring, thrilling, awful and wondrous film...ONE OF THE MOST MIND-BLOWING AND AMBITIOUS FEATURE FILMS EVER MADE.”-Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

    With Julianne Côté, Marc-André Grondin

    With this disarmingly atmospheric comedy, Québécois director Stéphane Lafleur continues to secure his place high among the recent surge of talent flowing from French Canada. Tu dors Nicole follows the summer (mis)adventures of a band of utterly unique characters, centering on the coquettish 22-year-old Nicole (Julianne Côté), who leads an ostensibly carefree lifestyle. When the belatedly acknowledged reality of adulthood begins to nip at her heels and her older musician brother Rémi (Marc-André Grondin) enters the picture, complications prove inevitable. Shot in low-contrast black-and-white 35mm, Tu dors Nicole is a sweet and finely crafted ode to restless youth that, in its seductive and charming way, recalls the likes of Aki Kaurismäki and Jim Jarmusch. - Film Society of New York

    Brit (Ashley Benson), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Cotty (Rachel Korine) and Faith (Selena Gomez) have been best friends since g...rade school. They live together in a boring college dorm and are hungry for adventure. All they have to do is save enough money for spring break to get their shot at having some real fun. A serendipitous encounter with rapper “Alien” (James Franco) promises to provide the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for. With the encouragement of their new friend, it soon becomes unclear how far the girls are willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget.

    “A CANDY COLORED FEVER DREAM IS THE MOST UNFORGETTABLE MOVIE SO FAR THIS YEAR”-Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

    “In Spring Breakers [Mr. Korine] bores into a contested, deeply American topic — the pursuit of happiness taken to nihilistic extremes — but turns his exploration into such a gonzo, outrageously funny party that it takes a while to appreciate that this is more of a horror film than a comedy.”-Manohla Dargis, New York Times

    "Best of Cannes

    (Critic’s Week Grand Prize)

    Exclusive Florida PREVIEW Screening!

    (The engagement starts July 24!)

    THE TRIBE

    Directed by MYROSLAV SLABOSHPYTSKIY/Ukraine/2014/132mins.

    With Grigoriy Fesenko, Yana Novikova, Rosa Babiy

    Winner of multiple 2014 Cannes Film Festival Awards (including the coveted Critics’ Week Grand Prix), Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy's The Tribe is an undeniably original and intense feature debut set in the insular world of a Ukranian high school for the Deaf. The Tribe unfolds through the non-verbal acting and sign language from a cast of deaf, non-professional actors—with no need for subtitles or voice over––resulting in a unique, never-before-experienced cinematic event that engages the audience on a new sensory level. Teenage Sergey (Grigoriy Fesenko), a new student at the boarding school, realizes immediately that he must prove himself worthy to be brought under the protective wing of the school gang's leader to survive unscathed. After an indoctrination of harmless initiation pranks and rites, Sergey's new-found clique soon introduces him to their common activities of robbery, bribery and prostitution. At first assimilating seamlessly into his new role in the tribe, he finds himself compromised as he begins to fall in love with his female classmate—and one of the gang's escorts—triggering a sequence of stunningly diabolical events.

    THREE EXAMPLE 100 METACRITIC REVIEWS:

    “The impact this has on the viewer is remarkable. By about twenty minutes into the film, I found myself "hearing" dialogue as each new scene unfolded. I don't remotely pretend to understand sign language, but the performances, the direction, and the energy of the film manage to communicate clearly everything that is being felt and shared. It's amazing the way it works, and there are so many moments in the film that are remarkable not only for the drama of what we're watching, but for the almost alien quality of what we're looking at.”-HitFix

    “..this deeply compelling debut feature from director Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy utterly defies mockery with the seriousness of its subject matter and the intelligence of its execution. And it duly won awards, three in fact: the Cannes Critics’ Week Grand Prize, the Visionary Award and a Distribution Support Endowment Prize, this last especially good news, we have to think, because despite the difficulty of its themes and the unfriendliness of its comedy-gold logline, this is a film that deserves the biggest arthouse audience possible.”-The Playlist

    “But Slaboshpytskiy’s film is finally most remarkable for the way it strips its characters to their raw, ferocious essence, while still allowing them to fully retain their distinctiveness as individuals. Operating well beyond the fringes of respectable society, these young men and women may well be the pawns and agents of a cruelly exploitative system, but they still come across as thinking, feeling human beings, each one desperately trying to assert his or her own place in a ruthless ruling order. To that end, these untrained actors perform with an intense, abrasive physicality that’s almost frightening in its eloquence; dialogue has rarely seemed more superfluous, as every gesture feels charged with attitude and emotion. The purity of expression Slaboshpytskiy achieves here may well take some viewers back to the silent era, but in finding its own bold cinematic language, “The Tribe” feels like something unmistakably, radically new.”-Variety
