La Notte by Michelangelo Antonioni - Alliance Franaise de Chicago
November 14, 2019 - Chicago

Over the course of twenty-four hours, a marriage gives its last shuddering breath in La Notte, featuring two of the screen's most melancholic beauties, Jeanne Moreau and Marcello Mastroianni. Feted novelist Giovanni and his discontented wife, Lidia, visit a dying friend in the hospital, an event which severely rattles Lidia. The two spend the rest of their day in parallel worlds, Lidia engrossed in her own dark thoughts, and Giovanni single-mindedly pursuing extramarital romance. There is no hope for reconciliation even at dawn, on the green grass of a golf course, where the film leaves us after a wandering night of jazz club, dance party and mal de vivre

Rebel Spirit: The Films of Patricia Mazuy - Film at Lincoln Center
November 15, 2019 - New York

Though little-known to American moviegoers, Patricia Mazuy has earned a reputation and a dedicated following among French audiences and international festival patrons for her bracing, singular directorial vision, developed over three decades across a small but distinguished filmography of narrative features, documentaries, and TV movies, after getting her start as an editor on the films of Agns Varda. Many of her keen-eyed period dramas, wry examinations of modern workplace dynamics, and lean, brooding chamber pieces of familial angst have screened at Cannes, and her work has earned the admiration of Jacques Rivette. In addition to multiple collaborations with composer John Cale, who scored three of her features, Mazuy has drawn quietly virtuosic performances from the likes of Sandrine Bonnaire, Isabelle Huppert, and Laurent Lafitte, each contributing to a vividly textured portrait of French social life. On the occasion of her fifth feature, Paul Sanchez Is Back! (screened in this year's Rendez-Vous with French Cinema), Film at Lincoln Center welcomes Mazuy in person for this first American showcase of her work.

North Mississippi Allstars - Cohoes Music Hall
November 16, 2019 - Cohoes

North Mississippi Allstars: Up and RollingA forgotten roll of film inspired a musical accompaniment, the North Mississippi Allstars' new record Up and Rolling. Shot before the turn of the century, the photographs resonate with the music of four families from the Mississippi hills. The album captures the communal spirit upon which the band was founded.In 1996, a photographer from Texas, Wyatt McSpadden, traveled to North Mississippi looking to photograph local musicians. Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson had grown up just south of Memphis and cut their teeth playing experimental rock & roll together, as well as the roots repertoire pioneered by their father, Jim Dickinson, a legendary producer (Big Star, the Replacements) and session player (Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan). Their feet were firmly planted in the North Mississippi mud and music scene, and they were excited to show Wyatt around their community, to introduce him to the musical families of Otha Turner, RL Burnside and Junior Kimbrough.Their first stop was Otha Turner's farm. Then in his late eighties, he was the last living fife and drum musician in the hills"and a friend to all," Luther exclaims. "He looked sharp tha... (read more)

When their romance prompts the scorn of her children and country club friends, she must decide whether to pursue her own happiness or carry on a lonely, hemmed-in existence for the sake of the approval of others. With the help of ace cinematographer Russell Metty, Sirk imbues nearly every shot with a vivid and distinct emotional tenor. A profoundly felt film about class and conformity in small-town America, All That Heaven Allows is a pinnacle of expressionistic Hollywood melodrama.
