“Madcap murder mystery meets razor-sharp relationship comedy in this witty update on the detective movie — think Nancy Drew and her boyfriend run amok in present-day Brooklyn. Husband and wife filmmaking team Sophia Takal and director Lawrence Michael Levine (Gabi on the Roof in July) star as recently engaged but perpetually bickering couple Barri and Noah. When their elderly downstairs neighbor suddenly kicks the bucket, the flighty Barri immediately suspects foul play. Cue a harebrained investigation as Barri — outfitted in a Columbo­-style trench coat—enlists her secretly-in-love-with-her lesbian roommate (Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat) to help her get to the bottom of the matter. Parenthood’s Jason Ritter co-stars in this screwball whodunit, which crackles with zingy one-liners, a brassy retro score, and real romantic tension.” (Denver Film Festival) Sophia Takal & Lawrence Michael Levine in person!
Dir. Lawrence Michael Levine, 2014, DCP, 96 min.

Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's "Island of Dr. Moreau" (3/3)

lostsoul_website1
3/3 - 10:15PM
$12/free for members

The outlandish rumors behind the making of the 1996 sci-fi/horror mish-mosh The Island of Dr. Moreau are the stuff of legend: a brilliant Young Turk director who, after being fired at the end of the first day of shooting, clandestinely sneaking back onto the set disguised as a “mutant animal” extra; actress Fairuza Balk fleeing across Australia to try and escape the scene; Marlon Brando insisting on appearing in whiteface and demanding that the world’s tiniest living human become his co-star; Val Kilmer living up to the hype of his (ahem) reputation. David Gregory’s new doc reveals a true story far more nutz than those mostly-true rumors, and shows how gifted filmmaker Richard Stanley’s vision was blown to pieces by an unreal conflagration of epically bad decisions, torrential weather, giant battling egos, clueless studio suits and bizarre group behavior — to become one of the most magnificently derailed production tales in Hollywood history. A Cinefamily staff favorite, this is a must-see for all fans of behind-the-scenes movie madness.
Dir. David Gregory, 2014, DCP, 97 min.

My Life Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn + Only God Forgives (3/4)

mylife_onlygodforgives_website
3/4 - 3:30PM
$12/free for members

MY LIFE DIRECTED BY NICOLAS WINDING REFN
An impossibly personal portrait of unique genre-bender filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, the Pusher trilogy) over the course of the shooting/release of his 2013 film Only God Forgives. Much like the equally intimate and emotionally explosive Hearts of Darkness (filmed by Francis Coppola’s wife Eleanor during the making of Apocalypse Now), here Refn’s own deep conflict is swinging in the breeze as we witness him wrestle with OGF’s particularly challenging production, as captured by the camera of his wife Liv Corfixen. Given Liv’s relationship, My Life… documents some very private moments to which a traditional doc crew simply wouldn’t have access. The result is a fascinating, detailed look at a creative genius at work, and also a portrait of a director torn between the general public’s desire for a Drive 2 and his own mission to explore more challenging narrative territory. Acclaimed composer/ regular Refn collaborator Cliff Martinez composed the doc’s original score.
Dir. Liv Corfixen, 2014, DCP, 58 min.

ONLY GOD FORGIVES
“The second collaboration between director Nic Refn and star Ryan Gosling does much of the same thing that their first, Drive, did: subvert expectations…Refn has created a film of incredible beauty and savagery the likes of which has rarely been seen. Through this straight-forward anti-revenge plot, Refn delivers an orgy of violence and cinematic beauty. It’s a beautiful piece of work that is different from anything else he’s done in his career.” — Daryl Loomis, DVD Verdict
Dir. Nicolas Winding Refn, 2013, DCP, 90 min.

Craving cartoons? Anxious for animation? We’ve been saving up a stockpile of celluloid silliness and stop-motion mayhem that’s guaranteed to inspire. From totally mod midcentury offerings by major studios like Disney & Paramount, to hand-painted experiments, crude claymation and cockroach-infested Canadian Jukeboxes– this shorts mix will rearrange your mind… one frame at a time. Anthropomorphic vacuum cleaners, plasticine pervs and wisecracking numerals await! We’ll even pull out a 1930s newsreel visit to the original Disney animation studios and some rarely screened Fleischer films from the dawn of the art form. And to keep things classy, we’ll also screen abstract experimental masterworks by Paul Glabicki and Oskar Fischinger. Best of all, the entire collection of shorts will be projected from original 16mm & 35mm prints. Ordinary animation? Forget it, film freaks, it’s Toon Town.

4TH INT'L WAYNE FEDERMAN FILM FEST: Klown (presented by Sacha Baron Cohen)

sachabaroncohen_website
3/5 - 7:30PM
$14/free for members

“HANDS DOWN THE FUNNIEST FILM OF THE YEAR…Plays like a superior, and way grosser, version of ‘The Hangover’.” — Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice

In a giddy, debaucherous Scandinavian NC-17-flavored take on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Klown (based upon the popular long-running TV show of the same name) follows two wildly inappropriate friends (internationally celebrated comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen) as they run amok through the Danish countryside, plowing through social taboos and unspeakable degeneracy. The odd couple pals have opposing agendas for their upcoming camping trip: Casper is determined to visit a mysterious world-renowned brothel as the final stop on his “Tour de Pussy,” while Frank, attempting to prove his fatherhood potential to his girlfriends kidnaps his nephew to join them. As these confrontational and consistently unpredictable Dogme-95-meets-the-Farrelly-Brothers plotlines collide, Klown will leave you hurting from nonstop laugh fits and genuinely shocked by several denouements you’ll never have seen coming. When we screened Klown a couple years ago, it received some of the most prolonged, intense outbursts of audience laughter we’ve ever clocked. Sacha Baron Cohen will appear in person to present the film!
Dir. Mikkel Nørgaard, 2010, DCP, 93 min.

3/6 - 10:30PM

When you’re the co-creator of Human Giant, you have the right to be regarded as one of the best of the underground. When you’ve been in every hit comedy show from The League to 30 Rock, however, you’re a patron saint of everything now. Paul Scheer can say he’s both; irreverent, surreal, and impeccably hilarious, his career reads like the what’s-what of the American funny bone for the past 15 years. It’s only right then that he present the towering classic Ghostbusters for Cinefamily because, well, smart recognizes smart: there’s pretty much nothing better than the combination of Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray fighting the most impressive supernatural foes in one of the best horror-comedies ever.

$12/free for members & kids under 14

As we come up on the first Saturday of the month, animation director David Silverman (Monsters, Inc., The Simpsons Movie) joins us for another one of our jam-packed noontime programs! We’re giving David the keys to the family time machine, and he’s plotted a course straight to the origins of the Saturday Morning Cartoons phenomenon: an era when they were first broadcast to an eager audience of hungry young minds forever shaped (or warped, depending on whom you ask) by their wry humor and out-there concepts — serious influences on all the animator legends that followed. Join us in rediscovering the classic awesomeness of Hanna Barbera, Jay Ward, Chuck Jones and more, hand-selected by David for how they inspired his own career and style. Free admission for all children 14 and under. Feel free to come in your PJs, and don’t forget to visit the free cereal bar while you’re here!

4TH INT'L WAYNE FEDERMAN FILM FEST: Fletch (presented by Chris Hardwick)

chrishardwick_website
3/7 - 7PM
$14/free for members

Chris Hardwick is a master at wearing a multitude of hats: he’s the head honcho of Nerdist, the host of “The Talking Dead” and “Talking Bad” in the podcast world, the ringleader of @ Midnight on the tube, and a diehard dynamo in the stand-up world. Fletch, the titular hero of the 1985 classic as brilliantly and effortlessly inhabited by Chevy Chase, is an investigative reporter who, along the way, impersonates a vagabond junkie, airplane repairman, surgeon’s assistant, and hoity-toity country club member. Is this multitude of personality a coincidence? Yeah, probably — but Chase nails so many silly bits and off-the-cuff moments that Fletch is elevated from what could’ve been a routine thriller into one of its era’s secret comedy legends. Chris done chose good.

4TH INT'L WAYNE FEDERMAN FILM FEST: MacGruber (presented by Will Forte)

Will Forte spent eight seasons on Saturday Night Live building a portfolio of unforgettably offbeat personalities, all of them fiercely committed to the same brilliantly lionhearted witlessness. And, amongst all the sketch comedy, he’s also had a thriving career acting and writing (including the brand-new show The Last Man On Earth), always making us laugh. Maybe hardest in MacGruber. Only one operative has been awarded 16 Purple Hearts, and only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In the ten years since his fiancée was killed, special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands — until a villainous Val Kilmer steps into the picture. It’s not easy making every obscenely crude moment hysterical in a “Why is this working so well?” type of way, but Forte and his director (Jorma Taccone, of the Lonely Island comedy troupe) keep this baby Airplane!-paced.

4TH INT'L WAYNE FEDERMAN FILM FEST: Big (presented by Lauren Lapkus)

laurenlapkus_website2
3/8 - 7:30PM
$14/free for members

Screening presented by Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is The New Black)! Goofy, floppy-haired and disarmingly charming, Tom Hanks delighted us in the ‘80s with a series of happy-go-lucky filmic adventures, all displaying a whimsical giddiness that’s still impossible to resist — with Big being possibly the most seminal and timeless. In the grand tradition of the era’s plentiful “switch” comedies, Big finds Hanks starting off as a 12-year-old who, after a visit to a mystical carnival attraction, magically transforms into an adult who accidentally snags a dream job at a Manhattan toy company. Hanks, co-stars Robert Loggia and Elizabeth Perkins, and director Penny Marshall manage to turn what could’ve been a cornball concept into a moving meditation on love, friendship and the loss of innocence. It’s a testament to them all that, somehow, even when the “adolescent in the adult body” begins a romance with Perkins’ unwitting, ultimate-cougar co-worker, it makes you feel warm ‘n fuzzy, rather than damp ‘n grody. An unexpected, rare female-helmed Hollywood blockbuster, and a movie that reminds us that we’re all kids at heart.

4TH INT'L WAYNE FEDERMAN FILM FEST: The Descent (presented by Kumail Nanjiani)

3/8 - 10:30PM
$14/free for members

It’s no secret: Kumail Nanjiani — co-star of HBO’s Silicon Valley and co-host of Comedy Central’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail — is a horror film nut, a true-blue believer in the genre. After all, he’s the comedian who came up with the legendary “Horror fans are OK with the murder of innocent children, but not Freddy Krueger as a racist?” bit. He’s picked for us one of the most effective fright films of the 2000s, and arguably the best cave-horror movie of all time: Neil Marshall’s The Descent, which has been solidly scaring the shit out audiences for almost ten years with its nerve-shattering suspense and teeth-clenching claustrophobia. Receiving a shower of resounding, well-deserved accolades from the horror fan community upon its original release, Marshall’s gory sophomore effort (his follow-up to the equally rad Dog Soldiers) put the British director on the map as a powerful voice in genre cinema. By employing an all-female cast of cave explorers looking for kicks, the film elicits genuine sympathy from the viewer without ever feeling like a gimmick — a rare feat from a modern horror film.

Filmmaker David Robert Mitchell in person! After a highly successful jaunt on the festival circuit (including Toronto, Sundance and AFI Fest), the indie horror smash It Follows is a breath of fresh, tense air, with a constantly-turning Rubik’s Cube conceit that we couldn’t get enough of. “Stuck with a sexually transmitted serial haunting after a romantic night out, a beautiful nineteen year-old finds herself pursued by a legion of malevolent, lumbering phantoms that will pursue her forever — unless she passes the curse onto someone else. In the light of day she is stalked, attacked by half-naked figures that none of her friends can see. These apparitions are driven by a single desire: to see her dead. Director Mitchell handles teenage sexuality in a non-exploitative and sensitive manner, allowing his characters to make sympathetic choices, yet maintains a chilling atmosphere of dread and suspense amidst the decaying suburbs of Detroit, creating a relentless and deeply creepy monster chase that culminates in a fresh and freaky final showdown.” — Toronto Int’l Film Festival

Once a millenium, something emerges from the darkest corner of the universe and enlightens us to the true meaning of being. Something so mystickal, so magickal, and so mind-splitting that all concepts before its existence sounds stupid and boring. Of course, we are talking about Everything Is Terrible! The Legends show is a culmination of the first seven (of 777) years of work from the video alchemists at EIT! These mindfreaks have taken thousands of forgotten VHS tapes, chewed them up, and spit them back to their young via daily website postings, six movies, and world tours. In that time, they’ve exposed us to wonders such as massaging cat ladies, apocalyptic facial exercises, pizzas parties in hell, and our immortal party-god, Duane. Nobody could have predicted the cultural, psychological, and illuminating impact EIT! would have on our consciousness, but seeing all their greatest works chronicled in one place reminds us that in the right hands, garbage can be turned into gold! It is time pack up your copies of Jerry Maguire and accept the fact that your life up until this moment has been pointless.

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (The Red Shoes, Stairway To Heaven) create a feverishly romantic, phantasmagoric marriage of cinema, ballet and opera in this one-of-a-kind film on a classic story. A melancholy poet dreams of three women — a mechanical performing doll, a bejeweled satanic siren and a consumptive opera singer — all of whom break his heart in different ways. Shot in glorious three-strip Technicolor with over-the-top color schemes, highly stylized sets and sumptuous costumes, this lavishly imaginative film features world-class prima ballerinas Moira Shearer and Ludmilla Tcherina amongst a cadre of haunting characters — everything from a dozen half-human/half-puppets and a wild-eyed “magic spectacle maker” with foot-long eyebrows, to a bewitching courtesan and her “Satanic master, collector of souls.”

With ingenious use of visual effects incorporating old fashioned theatrical tricks, double exposures and reverse action and slow motion, this wildly innovative story-within-a-story evokes a sumptuous dream state of pure artifice and otherworldly strangeness. No wonder Scorsese is a huge fan and supporter of the film, and none other than George Romero said this is the movie that made him want to make movies.

HEAVY MIDNITES: The Island of Dr. Moreau

3/14 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

The ill-fated making of the notorious ‘96 H.G. Wells adaptation is the stuff of heavy-duty Hollywood legend. Seriously, the new doc Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s “The Island of Dr. Moreau” is a must-watch: an auteur’s years-long struggle to bring a groundbreaking new vision to screen, sidelined by ballooning costs, studio suits, huge egos, bad weather and total jungle madness. The fact that it was completed at all is a miracle — that it turned out so absolutely insane, and was actually released to an unsuspecting public is a godsend to fans of weird cinema. This final product is an f’ing wild ride of outrageous acting, indulgent excess and questionable decisions, all headlined by a lazy, get-me-off-this-set Val Kilmer, and a scene-devouring Marlon Brando truly stealing the show as the ice-bucket-hat Moreau, a gauze-clad god figure to his island of freaks. Throw in excellent Stan Winston creature effects, a feline Fairuza Balk, Ron Perlman as the Sayer of the Law and Nelson de la Rosa — a 28-inch, 22-pound actor forced to hold his own against the rotund Brando — and you’ve got one for the ages.

The Tales of Hoffmann (brand-new restoration) (3/15, 5:45pm)

talesofhoffman_website1
3/15 - 5:45PM
$12/free for members

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (The Red Shoes, Stairway To Heaven) create a feverishly romantic, phantasmagoric marriage of cinema, ballet and opera in this one-of-a-kind film on a classic story. A melancholy poet dreams of three women — a mechanical performing doll, a bejeweled satanic siren and a consumptive opera singer — all of whom break his heart in different ways. Shot in glorious three-strip Technicolor with over-the-top color schemes, highly stylized sets and sumptuous costumes, this lavishly imaginative film features world-class prima ballerinas Moira Shearer and Ludmilla Tcherina amongst a cadre of haunting characters — everything from a dozen half-human/half-puppets and a wild-eyed “magic spectacle maker” with foot-long eyebrows, to a bewitching courtesan and her “Satanic master, collector of souls.”

With ingenious use of visual effects incorporating old fashioned theatrical tricks, double exposures and reverse action and slow motion, this wildly innovative story-within-a-story evokes a sumptuous dream state of pure artifice and otherworldly strangeness. No wonder Scorsese is a huge fan and supporter of the film, and none other than George Romero said this is the movie that made him want to make movies.

3/27 - 7:30PM

Dip your toes in silky monochrome, then submerge to consider the aqueous essence of ghosts (or goldfish) in a brand-new jaunt by In The Soup filmmaker Alexandre Rockwell that explores the weird, fragile logic of childhood — the era when you might’ve seen spirits in your bathwater. The far-out musings of Rockwell’s own four- and seven-year-olds are preserved in amber through a series of exuberant improvisations, as they portray neglected siblings who navigate their mother’s death via a slummed-out Echo Park enchanted forest odyssey that trades its trees for a smog-stained sprawl of twisted chainlink, dumpster divers and fixie-mounted street magicians. Thom Andersen’s vision of an under-depicted cinematic Los Angeles comes to mind: a poverty-stricken alter-Southland of “those who walk” and “those who ride the bus,” lovingly enshrined in 16mm short ends immortalizing our faded carnicerías, bleached parking lots and sun-baked roadside chaparral in a glimmering daydream travelogue. Filmmaker Alexandre Rockwell in person — plus, the show kicks off with Frances Bodomo’s short film Boneshaker, starring Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild)!

shredderorpheus_website
4/11 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

Co-presented by LIGHT IN THE ATTIC RECORDS. Soundtrack LP now available.

The next great Neon No-Wave rediscovery is here, and it f’ing shreds! Shredder Orpheus is a skatepunk nightmare dialed to eleven, a heroic cult vision of hallucinatory ambition — along with a heavy dose of forbidden-zone poetry, courtesy of the late, great Steven Jesse Bernstein: the Bukowski of the ‘80s Pacific Northwest. When the Devil’s “Euthanasia Broadcast Network” unleashes an evil television signal that corrupts and kills its viewers, only rock star Orpheus (writer/director Robert McGinley) and his band of Shredders can penetrate the underworld and free the airwaves. Armed with his trusty tricked-out deck and a futuristic Hendrix-designed guitar, our hero must battle legions of gothed-out, post-apocalyptic zonkers to get to the truth. Don’t miss your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see this unique blend of sick skateboarding, sci-fi social commentary, slashin’ songs, spaced-out comedy and ultra-wild décor — with the filmmaker behind it all IN PERSON to discuss!
Dir. Robert McGinley, 1989, 35mm, 88 min.
