May 14, 2019 - New York

"Godard returned to the mainstream industry with a film called Sauve qui peut (la vie) (Every Man for Himself), which had a producer, stars (including Isabelle Huppert), a story that the screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière helped him assemble, and a new sense of form, which he attributed to a rediscovery of the 'visual grammar' of silent films. The story concerns the romantic and artistic crises of an idle filmmaker, Paul Godard (Jacques Dutronc), as he attempts to return to the cinema, and Godard filmed it with an extraordinary, quasi-musical sense of balance and proportion. He had figured out how to make use of his lifelong cinematic obsession without merely imitating Hitchcock. The film was a great international success, and Godard was back" (Richard Brody).

Every Man for Himself / Sauve Qui Peut La Vie - MoMA
May 15, 2019 - New York

"Godard returned to the mainstream industry with a film called Sauve qui peut (la vie) (Every Man for Himself), which had a producer, stars (including Isabelle Huppert), a story that the screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière helped him assemble, and a new sense of form, which he attributed to a rediscovery of the 'visual grammar' of silent films. The story concerns the romantic and artistic crises of an idle filmmaker, Paul Godard (Jacques Dutronc), as he attempts to return to the cinema, and Godard filmed it with an extraordinary, quasi-musical sense of balance and proportion. He had figured out how to make use of his lifelong cinematic obsession without merely imitating Hitchcock. The film was a great international success, and Godard was back" (Richard Brody).

The Tin Drum / Die Blechtrommel - MoMA
May 16, 2019 - New York

Volker Schlöndorff and Jean-Claude Carrière present the digitally restored director's cut of their Academy Award– and Cannes Palme d'Or–winning film, which features 30 previously unseen minutes that flesh out several characters and sequences (most notably that of Mazerath, the Nazi sympathizer who has a sudden reversal of conscience; a critical scene with Fajngold, the Treblinka survivor; and an imaginary orgy at the court of St. Petersburg). The Tin Drum is a dance of death, a grotesque vision of lost childhood and the rise of Nazism. Carrière observes, "It is, first of all, a realistic film, deeply rooted in the Danzig lower middle-class, with its pettiness, its fears and, at times, with a certain grandeur.

Big Band B-3: Joey DeFrancesco with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra - Jazz at Lincoln Center
May 17, 2019 - New York

Joey DeFrancesco—arguably the greatest jazz organist alive—joins the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra for the first time. With two 61-note keyboards, a 25-note bass pedal board controlled by foot, and multiple custom drawbars, the Hammond organ is practically a full band by itself. This expansive instrument is rarely paired with a big band, but it adds a rich new dimension when the musicians are up to the challenge. Tonight, DeFrancesco and the JLCO will explore two classic records that defied the organ's typical small group confines and left fans craving more. First up is Duke Ellington's New Orleans Suite, a lesser-known and delightfully varied repertoire of Ellington excellence. The original recording featured organ only on the gospel-tinged "Blues for New Orleans," but DeFrancesco and JLCO trombonist Vincent Gardner are excitedly cooking up new arrangements to expand its role. The second half of the show explores Oliver Nelson's unique take on Peter & The Wolf, a playful suite full of fiery solos by legendary organist Jimmy Smith. DeFrancesco is one of jazz's most entertaining and stunningly virtuosic musicians, and he has wanted to play this music with the JLCO for a ... (read more)

Milou en Mai - May Fools - MoMA
May 17, 2019 - New York

"Jean-Claude Carrière and I were both in Paris in May '68," Louis Malle reminisced. "Miloš Forman was there also, and, coming from Prague where everybody was fed up with socialism, he was horrified that the students wanted to raise the red flag. But for Jean-Claude and myself, it seemed to be the culmination of surrealism. There was something about it that was really fun." Inspired by Chekhov and Jean Renoir, Malle and Carrière's comic "divertimento" basks in the idylls of an eccentric bourgeois family at their Bordeaux estate, blissfully oblivious to the raving hoards of Stalinist youth in faraway Paris.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being - MoMA
May 17, 2019 - New York

Against all odds, Philip Kaufman and Jean-Claude Carrière made something profoundly cinematic out of Milan Kundera's "unfilmable" bestselling novel, which traces the lives and loves of a womanizing brain surgeon (Daniel Day-Lewis), his fragile wife (Juliette Binoche), and his bohemian artist mistress (Lena Olin) over several dramatic months in 1968—from the thaw of Prague Spring until the Soviet-led invasion of Czechoslovakia. The film successfully balances Kundera's weighty reflections on philosophy and history with his frissons of eroticism and ironical wit.

A surprising hit in revolutionary 1968 France, this burlesque of Catholic dogma, which Buñuel called his "journey through fanaticism," follows two French vagabonds who bum their way to the Spanish holy city of Santiago de Compostella, their faith(-lessness) tested by comically outrageous encounters with the living mysteries of the Holy Trinity, the duality of Christ, and the Virgin Mary, and with heretics throughout the ages (the Marquis de Sade and the Whore of Babylon make particularly notable cameos).

Diary of a Chambermaid / Le journal d'une femme de chambre - MoMA
May 18, 2019 - New York

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather: In Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's sadomasochistic updating of Octave Mirbeau's Dreyfusard novel of 1900, a perfectly cast Jeanne Moreau is Celestine, the refined Parisian chambermaid who slowly lays bare the toxic underbelly of a fading aristocratic family in the provinces between the wars, humoring the lady of the manor in her cold ministrations over staff and house; the lady's dirty old father in his predations of animal and maidservant; and the estate's gardener-coachman in his fascist enthusiasms for God, country, and (she grimly suspects) a little girl's innocence.

Belle de jour - MoMA
May 18, 2019 - New York

In Belle de jour, Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's mystery box of dreams within flashbacks within fantasies, Catherine Deneuve embodies the Surrealist ideal of femininity as at once virginal and vampirical—bored housewife by night, whore by day—martyring herself to male desire, to painful guilty pleasures of the flesh, to achieve her own desire. "[S]omehow, letting the color in—and this is Buñuel's first color film—has changed the emotional quality of his obsessions in a completely unpredictable way…. The movie ends with a dark ambiguity to what has gone on before, but every detail has been carefully thought out that seeing it again is like seeing it in another key" (Renata Adler).

The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie / Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie - MoMA
May 19, 2019 - New York

"Luis Buñuel's 1972 comic masterpiece, about three well-to-do couples who try and fail to have a meal together, is perhaps the most perfectly achieved and executed of all his late French films. The film proceeds by diverse interruptions, digressions, and interpolations (including dreams and tales within tales) that, interestingly enough, identify the characters, their class, and their seeming indestructibility with narrative itself. One of the things that makes this film as charming as it is, despite its radicalism, and helped Buñuel win his only Oscar is the perfect cast, many of whom bring along nearly mythic associations acquired in previous French films. Frightening, funny, profound, and mysterious" (Jonathan Rosenbaum).

The Phantom of Liberty / Le fantôme de la liberté - MoMA
May 19, 2019 - New York

Luis Buñuel and Jean-Claude Carrière's absurdist parables, paradoxes, and comic inversions come fast and furious in The Phantom of Liberty: the tableau vivant of Goya's revolutionary painting The Third of May 1808, which proclaimed a modern age of resistance and terror; the little girl who hides in plain sight; the society dinner table as public toilet; the pornographic postcards of famous European monuments. In this runic and anarchical fever dream, unlike any since Buñuel's own surrealist 1930 masterpiece L'Age d'or, the film's all-star cast of Monica Vitti, Michel Piccoli, Jean-Claude Brialy, and company find themselves prisoners of their own making.

That Obscure Object of Desire / Cet obscur objet du désir - MoMA
May 19, 2019 - New York

Buñuel's last film goes up in flames, literally, in a destructive (or procreative?) act of terrorism, the climax of rich widower Fernando Rey's exquisitely tortured pursuit of the devilishly elusive "Concha" (played, alternately, by Carole Bouquet and Angela Molina).

Liszt vividly depicts episodes from Dante's Inferno and Purgatory, while Rossini paints a portrait of a mother's grief.

Mean Girl Broadway Musical If you didn’t see Mean Girl back in the 2000s, then you probably didn’t have that great of a childhood. Most people might call it a chick flick, but in our opinion, it is one of the greatest teen movies of our generation. The people were in awe over our little mathematician. Oh, and it’s not just our opinion, the movie was showered with more awards then we can count. But, the story just keeps getting better. After her incredible movie, Tina Fey didn’t just stop there. She has far greater and extravagant plans for the Mean Girls Franchise. You'd like to know if Tina Fey can write a musical. The oh-so-not-surprising answer is... yes! – Peter Marks, The Washington Post We sometimes feel that our childhood is coming to life with musicals. First, it was Bring it On, then Heathers with several others in development. But, the musical for Mean Girls is already here. The Mean Girls Musical is a masterpiece from the great Fey. It’s based on her book and the movie of the same name. The musical was under construction since 2013.

Frozen - Broadway Musical - St. James Theatre
Through June 05, 2019 - New York

The spectacular Disney film that captivated audiences around the world has finally made it to Broadway! Following the success of the 2013 animated movie, Frozen the Musical expands on the story of two sisters, giving more time to the characters we’ve come to love. With a book by Jennifer Lee, and music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the show has kept many members of the creative team from the film, ensuring everything on stage is faithful to the original story. Instead of being a direct copy of the film, what Frozen the Musical does is transform these animated characters into something real and tangible. It really takes the time to dig deep into the characters’ motivations, allowing their relationships to develop further. Delving deeper into Elsa and Anna’s past, the extra time given to the young sisters makes their love for each other clear from the start. Young Elsa, portrayed by Brooklyn Nelson and Ayla Schwartz, is the perfect tragic heroine. Her reaction to hurting her sister, and her fear of hurting anyone else, tugs at the heartstrings of every audience member. Both actors convey the role of big sister brilliantly, tapping into the respons... (read more)
