sun 5/6
white of the eye (metrograph) 215 + 9pm

Visionary Cammell returned to filmmaking after a ten-year hiatus like a bat out of hell with this suburban Arizona-set thriller, in which voices from the other side urge stereo technician and lothario David Keith to do awful, awful things. One half of the duo behind Performance, former painter Cammell’s gonzo directorial career deserves to be better known, and no film moreso than this intoxicating, kaleidoscopic serial killer picture, featuring Cathy Moriarty at peak performance.


tue 5/8
preserving genre film (film noir cinema)

wed 5/9

\m/

thu 5/10
andy (anthology film archives) 7 + 915pm
ANDY (Ricard Sarafian, 1965, 86 min, 35mm, b&w)
One of the more eye-opening and revelatory discoveries to emerge from the “Beyond Cassavetes” series so far, the 1965 micro-masterpiece ANDY, by Richard Sarafian (VANISHING POINT), created such significant buzz after our January 2015 screening that we’ve decided to revive it. A fragile, neorealist character study that borders at times on magical realism, the film stars Norman Alden as a mentally-challenged, middle-aged man running amok on an all-night bender. Shot in freezing, late-night exteriors on Manhattan’s West Side, Sarafian’s first feature is a testament both to his talent and his determination as a filmmaker. Stunningly photographed by Ernesto Caparrós and edited by Aram Avakian (both of whom had worked on Arthur Penn’s THE MIRACLE WORKER), ANDY has never been available on video, and hence is truly a hidden gem.


sat 5/12

lockheed wrote:thanks dude, both of the afa things sound awesome. i'm almost definitely going to go to the not sold out power trip/sheer mag show and maybe container, but i will check out the rest of those reccs as well.

paul schrader is doing a q&a after a showing of light sleeper tonight at metrograph, which is pretty enticing since light sleeper is awesome and i actually really like paul schrader a lot, or at least his movies, but apparently he's not a well liked dude for legitimate reasons? or that he's old and cranky or something, not actually sure.

schrader is a total dick, but I like a lot of his films. I even enjoyed the canyons. I've never seen light sleeper! if I wasn't at work I would probably have checked that out

the quad is showing a bunch of stuff that influenced his latest starting this weekend including carlos reygadas' silent light, which I love

the quad is also holding an alan rudolph retro which is p tight

also rooftop films & bamcinemafest lineups got announced bamcinemafest. tix go on sale on 5/10

https://www.bam.org/bamcinemafest

I'm excited to catch out joel potrykus' latest relaxer
Joel Potrykus (The Alchemist Cookbook, BAMcinemaFest 2016), Michigan’s greatest underground auteur, returns with another gonzo transmission from America’s heartland. Set on the eve of Y2K, Relaxer unfolds almost entirely in a squalid living room where Abbie (the Keatonesque Joshua Burge), commanded by his sadistic brother (David Dastmalchian), takes up a nigh-impossible challenge: beating the all-time Pac-Man high score without leaving the couch until he does. As Abbie’s quest devolves into a months-long absurdist nightmare, Potrykus guides this daringly demented black comedy into increasingly disturbing realms. The result is a grungy, noxiously funny vision of Gen X complacency hurtling towards oblivion.


plus debra granik's latest

I saw crime + punishment at sundance. great doc about the nypd's bullshit quota system. highly recommended!

some rooftop films highlights

Saturday, June 2, 2018
Damsel (David Zellner, Nathan Zellner)
In Green-Wood Cemetery. 500 25th Street. Brooklyn.
An affectionate reinvention of the western genre that showcases the Zellners’ trademark unpredictability, off-kilter sense of humor and unique brand of humanism, Damsel follows an affluent pioneer Samuel Alabaster (Pattinson) as he ventures across the American Frontier to find and marry the love of his life, Penelope (Wasikowska). As Samuel traverses the Wild West with a drunkard named Parson Henry (David Zellner) and a miniature horse called Butterscotch, their once-simple journey grows treacherous, increasingly blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel. A Magnolia Pictures release.
*NY Premiere

Date TBD
A Prayer Before Dawn (Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire)
The remarkable true story of Billy Moore, a young English boxer incarcerated in two of Thailand’s most notorious prisons. He is quickly thrown into a terrifying world of drugs and gang violence, but when the prison authorities allow him to take part in the Muay Thai boxing tournaments, he realizes that this might be his chance to get out. Billy embarks on a relentless, action-packed journey from one savage fight to the next, stopping at nothing to do whatever he must to preserve his life and regain his freedom. Shot in an actual Thai prison with a cast of primarily real inmates, A Prayer Before Dawn is a visceral, thrilling journey through an unforgettable hell on earth. An A24 release.

An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn (Jim Hosking)
Lulu Danger’s unsatisfying marriage takes a fortunate turn for the worse when a mysterious man from her past comes to town to perform an event called “An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn for One Magical Night Only.” A Universal Content Group release.

Bisbee ’17 (Robert Greene)
Bisbee ’17 will follow characters in Bisbee, Arizona as they struggle to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the controversial Bisbee Deportation, where 1200 striking miners were violently exiled from town. The film will combine observational documentary with uncanny reenactments, leading up to a centennial dramatization of Bisbee’s “darkest day.”
*Co-presented with BAMcinemaFest
*Recipient of the 2016 Rooftop Films and Garbo NYC Feature Films Grant

Dead Pigs (Cathy Yan)
The lives of a bumbling pig farmer, a feisty salon owner, a sensitive busboy, an ambitious expat-architect and a disenchanted rich girl converge and collide as thousands of dead pigs float down the river toward a rapidly modernizing Shanghai, China. Based on true events.
*NY Premiere

Never Goin’ Back (Augustine Frizzell)
A fresh and funny look at female friendship, following lifelong best friends Angela and Jessie, who dream of escaping their waitressing jobs at a low-rent Texas diner. Taking place over the course of just a few days, the film follows their hilarious and unpredictable misadventures on the streets of suburban Dallas, as they attempt increasingly madcap and wild schemes to try and raise some cash. An A24 release.
*NY Premiere

Our New President (Maxim Pozdorovkin)
The story of Donald Trump’s election told entirely through Russian propaganda. By turns horrifying and hilarious, the film is a satirical portrait of Russian meddling in the 2016 election that reveals an empire of fake news and the tactics of modern day information warfare. , In the small, central Polish town of Aleksandrów Kujawski, the director of the local culture centre announces a competition. The theme… a creative presentation of your personal patriotic attitude. Entrants are free to demonstrate their creativity in whatever form they like; in song, recitation or gesture, by giving a speech or staging their piece. Anything goes. There’s just one requirement; entrants may only present their own, original work. The eleventh day of the eleventh month arrives… Poland’s Independence Day. And on this very day, the jury, consisting of the director, the mayor, a priest and a local poetess, will select the region’s number one patriot.
