NOVEMBER SHOWINGS


MUSEO

NOVEMBER 9-15

dir. Alonzo Ruiz Palacios, Drama / Crime, Not Rated, Mexico, Spanish w/ English subtitles, 2018, 128 min.

Perennial students Juan and Wilson are planning a daring coup. They intend to break into the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City and steal precious Mayan, Mixtec and Zapotec artefacts, in particular the funerary mask of King Pakal. While their families celebrate Christmas they get down to business, just like a couple of seasoned criminals. Everything goes off without a hitch and, with their sports bags stuffed full of treasures, they return home to see on the news how their deed is described as an attack on the entire nation. Only now do they realise the gravity of their actions. Feeling more than a little queasy, they set about fencing their haul. The ensuing road movie takes us from the impressive Mayan ruins of Palenque to the chic seaside resort of Acapulco. Even when Juan and Wilson are behind the wheel, their endeavour has long since gone off the rails

BLAZE

NOVEMBER 9-15

dir. Ethan Hawke, Biography / Drama / Music, USA, English, 2018, 129 min.

Blaze is inspired by the life of Blaze Foley (Ben Dickey), the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. The film weaves together three different periods of time, braiding re-imagined versions of Blaze’s past, present and future. The different strands explore his love affair with Sybil Rosen; his last, dark night on earth; and the impact of his songs and his death had on his fans, friends, and foes. The braided storyline terminates in a bittersweet ending that acknowledges Blaze’s profound highs and lows, as well as the impressions he made on the people who shared his journey.

THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT

NOVEMBER 28 7PM

ONE SHOW ONLY
Pre-Release Preview of the Director’s Cut
THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT
Directed by Lars von Trier
Starring Matt Dillon   Bruno Ganz   Uma Thurman

dir.  Lars von Trier, Drama / Thriller, Not Rated, Denmark,  English, parts subtitled, 2018, 152 min.

Hold your breath or maybe your nose. The latest from the always controversial Lars von Trier.  To describe audience reaction to his movies at Cannes as ‘mixed’ is misleading. People either love or hate his work….sometimes to the point of near violence.  “The House That Jack Built”  met with dozens of walk outs and a standing ovation at the 2018 Cannes Festival. Here is 1 chance to see his latest in the director’s cut a month before its NYC premier trimmed for mass consumption.
We follow Jack, a highly intelligent serial killer (what else it’s von Trier) through 5 incidents and are introduced to the murders that define Jack’s development. We experience the story from Jack’s point of view where each murder is a work of art.  His goal is the ultimate artwork:  A collection of all his killings manifested in a House that he builts.
Von Trier has won numerous prizes at international festivals over the years and has been vilified almost as much.
