Super

Premiere (2011, 96 min.)
Starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon   Directed by James Gunn
 Action/Comedy

James Gunn's costumed avenger parody asks the questions, How can an ordinary guy become a superhero, and what happens if he does? Rainn Wilson stars as a short order cook who, in the wake of the departure of his wife (Liv Tyler) into the arms of a drug dealer (Kevin Bacon), becomes a crime fighter, taking on as his sidekick a comic book store clerk (Ellen Page). Rob Thomas of the _Capital Times_ calls _SUPER_ a "grimy, bloody and absolutely pitch-black superhero movie. And it's also really funny." Brian Tallerico of HollywoodChicago.com [1] writes that _SUPER_ contains "my absolute favorite performances of the year so far." Michael Phillips agrees: in the _Chicago Tribune_, he praises Ellen Page, who "goes bonkers, giving her gleeful nut job one of the more memorable horselaughs in recent American film history." For Robert Levin of Film School Rejects, _SUPER_ is an "appealing, often hilarious corrective to the conventional pop cultural idealization of the superhero." Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of _Ebert Presents At the Movies_ says that _SUPER_ "is both funny and unafraid to show the moral ugliness of its main characters." Jeffrey M. Anderson of Combustible Celluloid finds that _SUPER_ is a "disturbing, amazing experience."

Enter the Void - Original Uncut Version

Premiere (2010, 161 min. 35mm print)
Starring Paz de la Huerta, Nathaniel Brown, Cyril Roy   Directed by Gaspar Noe
 Drama   Language: In English and Japanese with English subtitles

ENTER THE VOID is the psychedelic thriller by visionary French maverick Gaspar No� (Irreversable, I Stand Alone), a cinematic thrill ride that has riveted audiences at the Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and SXSW film festivals. Nathaniel Brown and Paz de la Huerta star in a 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 immersive and just plain mind-bending experience, ENTER THE VOID is sure to be one of the most talked-about films of the year. Thomas Caldwell of Cinema Autopsy found ENTER THE VOID to be "an astonishing and hallucinogenic cinematic experience that mesmerized me for its entire running time." Internet reviewer Cole Smithey deemed it "such a virtuosic, if orgiastic, piece of experimental exploitation cinema that the audience is � mesmerized by the bold attack on the senses that Noe assaults the viewer with." Rich Cline of Shadows on the Wall writes that the film is "packed with moments of filmmaking genius." Mike Goodridge of Screen International says �ENTER THE VOID is a trip." And Manhola Dargis in The New York Times states: �This is the work of an artist who�s trying to show us something we haven�t seen before!�

House (Hausu)

Premiere (1977, 87 min.)
Directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi
 Horror/Comedy   Language: In Japanese in subtitles in Engish

Manohla Dargis of the New York Times: "Delirious, deranged, gonzo or just gone, baby, gone — no single adjective or even a pileup does justice to 'House,' a 1977 Japanese haunted-house freakout. Directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi [it is an] energetic exemplar of pulp surrealism… it is receiving its first, must-see-now domestic theatrical run. A midnight movie in lysergic spirit and vibe, this was a film made for late-night screening and screaming." Chuck Bowen of Slant sees deep themes in the film: "It's a dark cartoon of unfettered play, an attempt to directly channel budding teens' stream of consciousness with its neediness, triumph, exhilaration, confusion." Ms. Dargis adds that the typical viewer response "will be of surprise and delight, not terror."

STARTS FRIDAY, APRIL 29 FOR ONE WEEK!

Stake Land

(2011, 98 min.)
Directed by Jim Mickle
 Horror

After his family is destroyed by feral vampires teenager Martin (Connor Paolo) hooks up with a stranger named Mister (Nick Damici), and together they set out for New Eden, a place they hope is a sanctuary from the chaos, fighting cannibals and cult leaders along the way. Very much in the spirit of post-apocalyptic films such as _The Road_ and _Zombieland_, _STAKE LAND IS A BLEND OF ROAD FILM AND AND COMING OF AGE TALE_. Richard Larson of Slant Magazine praises director Jim Mickle's "an eye for detail," noting that he has made a film that is "slick, scary, and occasionally poignant, deftly rising above the swarm of imitators." Scott Tobias of NPR finds that Mickle"creates a wasteland that would be compellingly deranged even without vampires." In the _New York Times_, Jeannette Catsoulis writes that "Ryan Samul's cinematography and Jeff Grace's score" smoothly maintain "an unstable atmosphere of lurking horror." Maitland McDonaghof _Film Journal International_ says that _STAKE LAND_ is "a clever horror-action hybrid tailor-made for viewers who like their vampire movies bloody and mean, rather than awash in teen angst." Karina Longworth of the _Village Voice_ also calls _STAKE LAND_ a "hybrid," one that grafts the "ethereal, landscape-driven, light-infused beauty and na�f narration associated with Terrence Malick onto a tale in which struggle against supernatural forces is just one challenge of coming of age."

Cave of Forgotten Dreams

Premiere (2011, 90 min.)
Directed by Werner Herzog
 Documentary   Language: In English and German with subtitles in English

With his appetite for difficult locations and his fascination with man's drive for power and art, the prehistoric art found in the limestone cliff caves above the Ard�che River in southern France are a perfect culmination of Werner Herzog's interests. Generally closed off to the public, and only open to scientists and specialists a few days out of the year, the caves house examples of mankind's earliest efforts at art and representation. Nevertheless, for _CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS_ Herzog managed to open up the caves to his film crew, who collate from the images what for Philip French of the _Guardian_ is "a fascinating film." For Sukhdev Sandhu of the _Daily Telegraph_, _CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS_ is "rich in stern awe and disciplined wonder." The _Hollywood Reporter_ finds that _CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS_ sports "one of the best uses ever of 3-D." Andrew O'Hehir of Salon finds that the "art is beautiful, even stunningly accomplished, and these images are breathtaking � unlike anything you've seen before or will see again." Concludes Fernando F. Croce of Slant Magazine, "Only Werner Herzog would have thought of applying 3D technology to ancient rock walls, and, furthermore, made them more beguiling than all the galaxy's giant blue felines." _CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS_ is presented in 3-D.

Hesher

Premiere (2011, 100 min.)
Starring Natalie Portman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rainn Wilson   Directed by Spencer Susser
 Drama

Loud music. Pornography. Burning things to the ground. These are a few of Hesher's favorite things. And they are what Hesher (Joseph Gordon Levitt) brings into the lives of TJ (Devin Brochu) and his father, Paul (Rainn Wilson) when he takes up residence in their garage uninvited. Grief-stricken by the loss of TJ's mother in a car accident, Paul can't muster the strength to evict the strange squatter, and soon the long-haired, tattooed Hesher becomes a fixture in the household. Like a force of nature, Hesher's anarchy shakes the family out of their grief and helps them embrace life once more. Also starring Natalie Portman, Spencer Susser's _HESHER_ is the latest variation on the uninvited stranger film, which includes titles such as Pasolini's _Teorema_ and Dennis Potter's _Brimstone & Treacle_ � with a little bit of Mike Leigh's _Naked_ thrown in. "With tattoos of a middle finger on his back and a dead stick figure on his chest, Gordon-Levitt's Hesher is raw destruction," writes Amy Nicholson in _Boxoffice_. _HESHER_ "manages to succeed with a pastiche of great casting and an unapologetic slant towards being anti-touchy-feely. Until it needs to be," comments Erik Childress in Cinematical. For Tim Grierson of _Screen International_, _HESHER_ is "pleasingly provocative."

Another Earth

Premiere (2011)
Starring Brit Marling, William Mapother   Directed by Mike Cahill
 Drama/Science Fiction

One morning, Rhoda Williams (Brit Marling, who also co-wrote the script), a bright budding scientist accepted into MIT's astrophysics program, wakes up to discover that the earth has a new moon � sort of. It is a replica of the earth itself, circulating the globe as a secondary satellite. In what Tom Long of the Detroit News calls "a wrenching story and a wonder-tinged film," ANOTHER EARTH follows Rhoda later that day to a party, where everyone is talking about this new astro-phenomenon, and in a careless moment, Rhode drinks too much at a party and drives home. Four years later, the consequences of that evening's events come full circle when Rhoda meets a brilliant composer, John Burroughs (William Mapother of Lost, and a cousin to Tom Cruise), who has retreated from the world. The two outsiders begin an unlikely love affair and reawaken to life. Roger Moore of the Orlando Sentinel calls ANOTHER EARTH "an exploration of grief, guilt and redemption that plays out almost entirely between two people thrown together by circumstance." Steve Persall of the St. Petersburg Times writes that ANOTHER EARTH "is a tough movie to shake off ... resisting movie tactics that usually accompany such material. Using a sci-fi premise to engage a grounded, almost pedestrian story of guilt and regret is a bold stroke." For Clint O'Connor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Brit Marling is "mesmerizing in this spare and stark story of redemption." And director Mike Cahill, writes James Kendrick of the Q Network Film Desk, "proves to be quite adept at conveying surprising depth with a visual minimalism that suits the film's relatively low-budget, independent origins."

Brighton Rock

(1947, 92 min.)
Starring Richard Attenborough   Directed by John Boulting

Receiving a 100 % approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, BRIGHTON ROCK is the post-war British noir crime thriller based on the bestselling novel by Graham Greene, which made a star out of Richard Attenborough, who went on to become an Academy Award winning film director himself. Attenborough plays Pinkie Brown, a small-town gangster whose hoods runs a protection racket based at the race course in the seaside town of Brighton. When Pinkie orders the murder of a rival, Fred (Alan Wheatley), the police believe it to be suicide, but that doesn't convince Ida Arnold (Hermione Baddeley), who was with Fred just before he died, and she sets out to find the truth. She comes across naive waitress Rose (Carol Marsh), who can prove that Fred was murdered. In an attempt to keep Rose quiet Pinkie marries her. But with his gang beginning to doubt his ability, and his rivals taking over his business, Pinkie starts to become more desperate and violent. Not to be confused with the recent remake, BRIGHTON ROCK in John Boulting's adaptation is in the words of the Village Voice's Vadim Rizov, a "seedy noir, equal parts concealed- camera atmosphere and tense set pieces." Chris Cabin of Filmcritic deems BRIGHTON ROCK "nuanced and subtle," while Dennis Schwartz of Ozus' World Movie Reviews deems it a "don't miss ." Jake Arnottof the Guardian writes that BRIGHTON ROCK, with its Greene style examination of crime and faith clashing with society and desire, "is worth another viewing simply as a reminder that gangster films are meant to be unsettling."

The Man Who Fell To Earth

35th Anniversary Print! (1976, 139 Min.)
Starring David Bowie   Directed by Nicolas Roeg

For whatever reason, rock stars rarely transfer their charisma to the big screen. And a rock star such as David Bowie was especially intransigent, given his chilly sometimes ethereal and gender transgressing persona. One of the few films to accurately capture his public persona, indeed one of the few films to capture any rock performer's act, was Nicholas Roeg's THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH, which perfectly melded Bowie's elegant and fragile affect with a low-signal sci-fi tale derived from a cult novel by Walter Tevis (The Hustler). Supported by an oddball cast that includes Rip Torn, Candy Clark, Buck Henry, and Bernie Casey, the story concerns a space alien (Bowie) who crash lands on Earth while seeking help for his drought-stricken planet. By securing patents to advanced technology, he becomes a fabulously wealthy industrialist. However, money and its attendant decadence ultimately exert a stronger gravitational pull. Variety noted that upon its release in 1976, THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH established Roeg as "one of the most talented and imaginative new filmmakers in this part of the world," while Peter Keough of the Boston Phoenix found that "the technological elements of the film have proven oddly prescient." Laura Clifford of Reeling Reviews sees that Roeg's style "gives a hallucinatory sheen to the tale," while Dennis Schwartz of Ozus' World Movie Reviews finds that the "casting of the androgynous-bent rock-star David Bowie was an alien was inspired." Thirty-five- years later, THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH has "lost none of its ability to startle" for Tim Brayton of Antagony & Ecstasy. Joshua Rothkopf of Time Out New York concludes that THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH remains the "most intellectually provocative genre film of the 1970s." Originally cut by 20 minutes in its 1976 U.S. release, this 35th anniversary is the complete version.

The Adults in the Room

Premiere (2011, 85 min.)
Directed by Andrew Blubaugh
 Documentary/Drama/Comedy

A film with a delicate, even controversial subject, THE ADULTS IN THE ROOM is a hybrid documentary exploring filmmaker Andy Blubaugh's relationship with an older man during his teen years and his efforts in the present to turn those events into a narrative film. It combines re-enactments of the troubled romance through the recollections of a now wiser Andy and interviews with relationship columnist Dan Savage, educators, and social workers to explore this thorny issue of adolescent sexuality and the relationships that make us who we are. THE ADULTS IN THE ROOM is an important cultural milestone, one that makes people think and reflect, before they rush to condemn and judge. Writes Shawn Levy of the Oregonian, "I write as an unabashed fan of Andy Blubaugh�s honest, witty, smart, and fresh movies, which I�ve been enjoying one by one the last couple of years. They are unique because they arise from the human idiosyncrasy of the filmmaker himself: the sort of grassroots creativity that feels very now and very 'Portland' to me." Documentary filmmaker Alan Berliner also has high praise for THE ADULTS IN THE ROOM, noting that it is a "genre-busting cinematic tour de force, mixing dramatic reenactment, documentary interviews, behind the scenes ('the making of') verit� footage, autobiography, lyrical cinematography (and who knows what else he has up his sleeve), into a film project unlike anything we�ve ever seen before." The Bay Area Reporter's David Lamble praises Calvin McCarthy's performance as a young Andy, writing that the actor "employs his choir-boy countenance to hint at the many faces and motives of the teen 'victim' of an adult/child relationship."

Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life

Much more famous in France and Europe than anywhere else, while also being almost invisibly influential internationally, Serge Gainsbourg (1921-1991) was probably the preeminent singer songwriter of his era, ushering in a sexual maturity commensurate with the liberation movement of the 1960s. In this "impressive film" (David Stratton, At the Movies), comic book artist Joann Sfar interprets this fascinating life which tracks Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino), from his childhood years in Nazi-occupied Paris, through his early years as a painter and jazz musician (brushing shoulders with Boris Vian), to his life as a wildly popular singer-songwriter, notorious bon vivant, and lover of some of the world's most glamorous women including Brigitte Bardot (Laetitia Casta), Jane Birkin (Lucy Gordon), and beatnik icon Juliette Gr�co (Anna Mouglalis), who all share the screen with a giant puppet alter- ego: a scary, libidinous bad-boy who personifies all of Gainsbourg's worst proclivities. Jordan Mintzer of Variety found GAINSBOURG both "evocative and faithful in its depiction of the famed French singer's lascivious life," while Sandra Hall of the Sydney Morning Herald deems it "a celebration; an entertaining tribute." Alice Tynan of Concrete Playground praises the film as an "impressionistic rendering, a decadent celebration and a downright sexy account of a supremely talented musician, and his ugly mug." David Edwards of the Daily Mirror is pleased with the "sheer imagination brought to the screen -- not to mention the tunes," while Derek Malcolm of This is London finds that GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE has a "ripe, grown-up eroticism as rich as the sumptuous costumes and sets."

The cult film of the century, THE ROOM is the auteur labor of Tommy Wiseau, who wrote, directed, and stars in this tale of a Johnny, a successful banker who is perhaps too trusting of his bride to be, Lisa (Juliette Danielle). Complications ensue when Johnny's best friend, Lisa mother, and some newcomers get involved with the couple. The Dim Post says that THE ROOM "lived up to the hype," while Film Fiend found it "deliriously entertaining." Picture Show Pundits asserts that "to watch THE ROOM is truly a life-altering experience." Possibly the best worst movie ever made. Come join the interactive fun!
