Basquait

Nov 07, 2014 - Nov 07, 2014

“Art lives on the right side….Jean-Michel Basquiat seems to have spent most of his brief life on the right side of the brain. Only another artist could understand that, and Basquiat is the confident, poetic filmmaking debut of the painter Julian Schnabel.” Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun Times.

The Diving Bell and The Butterfly

Nov 07, 2014 - Nov 07, 2014

Lilting

Nov 07, 2014 - Nov 07, 2014

A highlight of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the debut feature by Cambodian-born writer-director Hong Khaou is a tender, quietly affecting portrait of divides – both linguistic and generational. Ben Whishaw (BRIGHT STAR) plays a heartbroken young Londoner struggling to make amends with his late boyfriend’s mother (Pei-pei Cheng), a Cambodian-Chinese immigrant who speaks no English, and who refuses to acknowledge her son was gay.

National Gallery

Nov 08, 2014 - Nov 08, 2014

The legendary documentarian Frederick Wiseman (TITICUT FOLLIES, WELFARE) has long been obsessed with inner-workings of complex institutions. Here he turns his camera on London’s National Gallery, introducing us to administrators, curators, teachers, and docents, all trying to keep a tradition-bound organization relevant in the 21st century. The result is more than just a kalediscopic portrait of a great museum – it’s also an exhilarating, visually ravishing inquiry into the enduring power of art to alight all of our senses.

Zero Motivation

Nov 08, 2014 - Nov 08, 2014

In a bureaucratic office on a remote military base in Israel, Daffi (Nelly Tagar) finds unexpected ways to shred documents, while her best friend Zohar (Dana Ivgy) wonders if she’s ever going to lose her virginity. So begins this uproariously funny, unexpectedly touching comedy – a cross between OFFICE SPACE, MASH and THELMA AND LOUISE (with a little bit of GHOST thrown in for good measure). Written and directed by newcomer Talya Lavie, ZERO MOTIVATION won the World Cinema prize at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

Mr. Turner

Nov 09, 2014 - Nov 09, 2014

The peerless Mike Leigh (SECRETS & LIES, TOPSY-TURVY) serves up his decades-in-the-making passion project: a warts-and-all biography of British master J.M.W. Turner. As the title character, Leigh regular Timothy Spall is a wonder – a grunting, growling genius willing to do anything, and hurt anyone, in order to create transcendent art. Featuring soon-to-be-legendary cinematography by Dick Pope, whose painterly, light-suffused images are every bit as beautiful as Turner famed canvases.

Nov 09, 2014 - Nov 09, 2014

Germany’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, BELOVED SISTERS – directed by Dominik Graf – plays like a deliciously entertaining mash-up of Jane Austen, BARRY LYNDON and THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF WEIMAR. 173 min. In German with English subtitles.
