CIBO MATTO NEW SCENE 8:00

Cibo Matto’s hip-hop infused, electro pop burrowed deep into our collective earholes throughout the 1990s, becoming a symbol for the new post-genre musical cool. Experts at establishing mood and always up for an experimental challenge, the duo has developed new musical soundtracks to a number of wild and abstract short movies to be played in this one-time-only performance. Anchoring the screenings are two rare presentations of films made in 1970. First is Yoko Ono's incredible Fluxus epic Fly, which features a fly roaming a woman's body. Second is a modern re-staging of celebrated Bauhaus artist Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet—a movie that will blow your mind with its campy costumes, weird choreography and sheer delight.

SFIFF CLOSING NIGHT Experimenter 7:00

This inventive and playful biography of scientist Stanley Milgram revisits his famous experiment, in which subjects were made to believe they were administering electric shocks to others in order to test why people will cede to authority, no matter how brutal the request. An examination of scientific ethics, the drama also explores the moral consequences of “just following orders.” Anchored by a riveting performance from Peter Sarsgaard as Milgram, iconoclastic genius Michael Almereyda (Hamlet) has delivered a timely and important film about the role of science in our society.

Directed by Penelope Spheeris
Containing: Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere & Alice Cooper

"We're not worthy!" Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Saturday Night Live with Spheeris' ode to Heavy Metal that slyly subverts the music industry as it follows two maniacs who host a cable access show in their downstairs basement. This side-splitting, four star comedy finds a perfect balance between stoopid and profound, yet again proving Spheeris' unique understanding towards adolescent youths. Come out and celebrate (with a Special Guest!) Wayne & Garth's magical journey that proves that even Saturday Night Live skit-inspired-flicks can change the world. Preceded by trailers made by Penelope Shpeeris. Rated PG-13. Original 35mm print from Paramount. 94 minutes.

Spheeris' again captures a moment-in-time better than any film from the era and it's time to celebrate it in all of its hair-sprayed glory.

In the Coen Brothers’ snowbound noir, Frances McDormand stars as a very pregnant local police chief patiently piecing together a crime involving weaselly car salesman William H.

McDormand won the Oscar, as did the Coens’ screenplay. With Steve Buscemi, Peter Stormare and Harve Presnell. (1996, 98 min, 35mm)

In making the film, Herzog was determined to actually do that…[it] opens on the note of madness, which it will sustain. –Roger Ebert. Claudia Cardinale co-stars; music by Popol Vuh.

Perplexed cops David Carradine and Richard Roundtree are on its tail but neurotic hood Michael Moriarty (in a tour de force performance) knows where the winged serpent nests. Candy Clark and gonzo stop-motion effects co-star in what is perhaps the apex of genre pioneer Larry Cohen’s insane brand of exploitation cinema. (1982, 93 min, 35mm)

TOUCH OF EVIL 4:30, 8:30

Orson Welles’ last Hollywood film as writer/director stars Charlton Heston and Janet Leigh as Americans caught in a maze of corruption just over the Mexican border.

+ MAGICIAN: THE ASTONISHING LIFE AND WORK OF ORSON WELLES 6:40

Chuck Workman’s new documentary looks at the remarkable genius of Orson Welles on the eve of his centenary—the enigma of his career as a Hollywood star, a Hollywood director (for some a Hollywood failure) and a crucially important independent filmmaker.

(2014, 94 min, DCP)

WEDNESDAY MAY 19 DOUBLE FEATURE

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL 7:00

Wes Anderson’s elaborate, deceptively thoughtful new film recounts the adventures of Gustave H,
a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars,
and the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting
and the battle for an enormous family fortune—all against the back-drop of
a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent. The stellar cast includes Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Saoirse Ronan, Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, F. Murray Abraham and a bevy of Anderson regulars. (2014, 100 min, DCP ‘Scope)

+ THE HOTEL NEW HAMPSHIRE 4:55, 8:55

Tony Richardson adapted John Irving's novel about an eccentric family and their psychological and emotional maelstroms spanning across far-flung locations.

(1984, 109 min, 35mm)

 
     
   


TUESDAY MAY 20 DOUBLE FEATURE

THE BIG SLEEP 3:00, 7:00

Howard Hawks’ famously incomprehensible film of Raymond Chandler’s first novel has Humphrey Bogart’s Philip Marlowe entangled in both a black-mail scheme and the smoldering dame Lauren Bacall. This chronic hangover of a film is full of corruption, annihilation and effervescent humor. Martha Vickers and a very memorable Dorothy Malone co-star. Music by Max Steiner. (1946, 114 min, 35mm)

+ THE BLUE DAHLIA 5:10, 9:10

At the pinnacle of Alan Ladd/Veronica Lake mania, crime fiction legend Raymond Chandler fashioned this original, booze-fueled screenplay for the co-stars, and ended up with an Oscar nomination for his trouble. Ladd plays a veteran who finds a more sophisticated form of murder and mayhem on the home front, while Lake vamps through the proceedings at her most glamorously iconic. –Noir City program guide. Directed by George Marshall. (1946, 96 min, 35mm)

 
     
   


THURSDAY MAY 21 SWAYZE DOUBLE FEATURE

ROAD HOUSE 7:00

In this punch-drunk drive-in classic, Patrick Swayze brings his requisite conviction to the role of a bad-ass bouncer protecting a Kansas City honky-tonk from sadistic crime boss Ben Gazzara and his lugheads.

Kelly Lynch and Sam Elliott co-star. (1989, 114 min, 35mm ‘Scope)

+ POINT BREAK 9:10

In his first role as an action movie hero, Keanu Reeves stars as Johnny Utah, a young FBI agent going undercover to infiltrate a gang of surfers (lead by Buddhist bad guy Patrick Swayze), whom he suspects of doubling as "The Ex-Presidents," bank robbers who perform their escapades disguised in rubber masks bearing the likenesses of such iconic rip-off artist-executives as Reagan and Nixon. Point Break was the first big hit from director Kathryn Bigelow, the American cinema's reigning poet of masculinity. With Lori Petty, Gary Busey and James LeGros. –Brecht Andersch. (1991, 122 min, 35mm ‘Scope)

THURSDAY MAY 21 DOUBLE FEATURE

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE 3:45, 8:30

Stanley Kubrick dissects the nature of violence in this darkly ironic, near-future satire that brought Anthony Burgess’ astonishingly heartless world to life. Malcolm McDowell, as Alex, is one of the filmmaker’s most remarkable realizations, as is Wendy (née Walter) Carlos’ electronic music on the soundtrack. (1971, 137 min, 35mm)

+ IMMORTAL BELOVED 6:15

Gary Oldman gives a wonderfully wounded performance in this biography of Beethoven, its narrative built around an actual letter found after his death, setting in motion an investigation of the composer's life. Writer/director Bernard Rose’s (Candyman) sumptuous, soulful film “imagines the mental states of Beethoven with a series of images as vivid and convincing as a dream.“ –Roger Ebert. Jeroen Krabbé, Isabella Rossellini and Valeria Golino co-star. (1994, 121 min, 35mm ‘Scope)

 
     
   


MONDAY MAY 25 MEMORIAL DAY DOUBLE FEATURE

FULL METAL JACKET 7:00

Released during a boom of Vietnam films, this riveting masterpiece follows young Marines from boot camp to their struggle for survival during the Tet Offensive. “This is in contradistinction as an abstract exercise both to Coppola’s Apocalypse Now and Stone’s Platoon, not in argument.” –CM. With Matthew Modine, Adam Baldwin, Vincent D’Onofrio and Lee Ermey. (1987, 116 min, 35mm)

+ BIRDY 9:10

Following combat in Vietnam, two battle scarred friends reunite in a military hospital and flashback to their adolescence in Philadelphia and one’s lifelong desire to be a bird. Under the sympathetic direction of Alan Parker, Nicolas Cage and Matthew Modine shine in demanding roles. The highly atmospheric score is by Peter Gabriel. “Part satire, part Christ myth, it’s like The Little Prince rewritten by Kurt Vonnegut.” –Pauline Kael. (1984, 120 min, 35mm)

After serving a five year jail sentence, father Dennis Hopper finds his daughter (Linda Manz) has grown into a rebellious punk, having barely been looked after by her junkie mom (Sharron Farrell). Hopes of once again becoming a "normal" family are shattered as the film barrels towards its devastating conclusion.
