16-05-2019 12:00:00 16-05-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Luna | 9:30 PM Director: Bernardo Bertolucci Run Time: 142 min. Format: 35mm Rating: R Release Year: 1979 Starring: Jill Clayburgh, Matthew Barry, Veronica Lazar The Deuce does Mother's Day this May with gusto when Bernardo Bertolucci's gutsy virtuoso melodrama LUNA lights up the darkness of our lives – just as it once lit up the dank environs of 42nd street's Apollo Theater – after opening the 17th New York Film Festival on September 28, 1979! Recently widowed opera super-diva ditches Brooklyn for Italy with teen-aged son in tow – only to discover that her semi-self-absorbed "life-style" has led him to a semi-hidden heroin addiction… and she will do all a mother can to bring him back to her bosom! Soufflé's and disco-dancin! Skateboarding and Un Ballo in Maschera! A fever-dream of Freudian tom-foolery and outré Oedipal desires! Slyly self-referential to Bertolucci's own previous work and rife with rampant shifts in tone – at turns hilarious and horrifying – as tear-jerking as it is squirm-inducing – deliriously surreal and painfully real… a tour-de-force of music, mystery, and a mother-lode of emotion – exploding with light and color from Vittorio Storaro's lens… an operatic feast for all the senses! With a near career-killer of a role for Jill Clayburgh in possibly her best performance ever… LUNA is a much maligned but masterful film from one of the Masters of Cinema… and on The Deuce!! Bring your mom if you have one! http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=362726 Nitehawk Cinema Nitehawk Cinema
