Fairy Tales for Adults

Just because we grew up doesn’t mean we don’t like a good fairy tale. Many a filmmaker has used the archetypes and images of our favorite children’s fantasies, and treated them with a complexity or savagery that would make Mother Goose’s head spin—so let’s put the kids to bed and tell a real bedtime story. Sweet dreams are made of these.

Valerie and Her Week of Wonders

valerie and her week of wonders
6/30/2017 - MIDNITE

As joyful as it is impossible to pin down, Valerie is a haunting, psychoactive period piece which plunges the beautiful heroine Valerie into a phantasmagorical world of thirsty vampires, the dark arts, and dreamy free love — all set to one of the great film scores of the era, a cocktail of psych-folk and avant-garde classical by the great Lubos Fiser. The film opens with 13-year-old Valerie’s first menstruation and subsequent sexual awakening, her unsteady discovery of which lets loose a torrent of quixotic, hallucinatory experiences both terrifying and beautiful; amongst a haze of shifting tones and a flurry of role reversals and Gothic nightmares in broad daylight, Valerie floats along, buoyed by the fears and fantasies that come with nascent sexuality and teenage fantasy. This bewitching brew is a must to behold on 35mm — do not miss it.

Dir. Jaromil Jires, 1970, 35mm, 77 min.

“Mix together one cup of Natural Born Killers with a half-cup of Los Olvidados, sprinkle liberally with freeze-dried bile and bake for 98 minutes… [Matthew] Bright, mercifully, is an allegorist who consistently prefers projectiles to platitudes.” – Allan Ulrich, San Francisco Chronicle

Reese Witherspoon struts her stuff in what is easily one of her best performances, as a jailbait Red Riding Hood named Vanessa tearing down the I-5 to see her granny, all the while being stalked by cunning, murderous pervert/child shrink Bob Wolverton (Kiefer Sutherland). This clever, hilarious genre mishmash marked the directorial debut of former Oingo Boingo member Matthew Bright (who co-wrote Forbidden Zone) and is just as wild as you’d expect, in addition to offering a surprisingly effective parable about the corrosion of the American justice system! Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience this disturbing and weirdly uplifting gem in a theater the way the movie gods intended.

Dir. Matthew Bright, 1996, 35mm, 110 min.

Alice in Wonderland: An X-rated Musical Fantasy

6/24/2017 - MIDNITE

The makers of the softcore hit Flesh Gordon returned with this naughty, notorious musical comedy featuring sweet ‘70s starlet Kristine DeBell (Meatballs) banging, blowing, and finger-fiddling her way through Lewis Carroll’s goofy gallery of beloved characters. Sweet librarian Alice gets cold feet about going all the way with her boyfriend and follows the White Rabbit (played by a pseudonymous Larry Gelman from “The Bob Newhart Show”) into a Wonderland that leaves her a whole lot less inhibited thanks to a filthy Mad Hatter, a skinny and very frisky Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and a nasty Queen of Hearts, among many others. Sweet, witty, and naughty in the way only the ‘70s could be, this nifty time capsule feels like an off-Broadway musical staged by the staff of Penthouse. Don’t bring the kiddies to come and see a side of Alice that Tim Burton and Disney would never, ever dare show you.

Dir. Bud Townsend, 1976, 35mm, 81 min.

Every big-name internationally adored director, after years of critical acclaim, is bound to craft an off-the-cliff piece of one-for-the-ages capriciousness — and Louis Malle’s turn came with this seldom-seen, magically insane ‘70s fable. Drawing inspiration from Lewis Carroll, the story follows a lost English girl through a woodland landscape of the future, where men and women have declared war with one another and people can communicate with animals. She falls in with Joe Dallesandro and his incestuous sister, which leads to even more surreal developments leading up to a poetic finale involving a unicorn. Beautifully shot by the great Sven Nykvist at Malle’s own French home at the time, this stream-of-consciousness reverie remains rare, so come experience this love-it-or-hate-it brainblaster on the big screen while you can.

Dir. Louis Malle, 1975, 35mm, 100 min.

The Company of Wolves

Little Red Riding Hood gets a gorgeous, horrific makeover in this dreamlike breakthrough classic from Neil Jordan. In a fantasy world imagined by young girl Rosaleen, a stern granny (Angela Lansbury) lectures her about the dangers of straying from the path and encountering hairy men harboring slavering wolves inside them. Spinning off into a series of breathtaking set pieces, this visual feast was initially lost in the ‘80s tumble when distributors tried to pass it off as another werewolf flick, sort of The Howling for the English lit crowd. The late English writer Angela Carter adapts her own stories to craft an unforgettable twilight journey through the forbidding depths of female adolescence, where a dash of lipstick is enough to unleash any number of hairy beasts hiding in the woods.

Dir. Neil Jordan, 1984, 35mm, 95 min.

6/3/2017 - MIDNITE

David Lynch tackles the dual fantasticness of The Wizard of Oz and Elvis to produce one of the most memorable cult films of the ‘90s. This wicked, lurid, picaresque tale follows cool King worshipper/ex-con Sailor Ripley (Nicolas Cage) and his mad-in-love girlfriend Lula (Laura Dern) on the way to New Orleans while Lula’s witchy, twitchy obsessive mother (Diane Ladd) chases them across the country via a hired killer. In a nonstop tornado of epic gory weirdness, Cage and Dern run across the ultimate rogue’s gallery of filmic freakazoids played by Isabella Rossellini, Harry Dean Stanton, Sherilyn Fenn, Crispin Glover, Grace Zabriskie, Jack Nance, and Willem Dafoe (in the funky role of a lifetime) as a mentally malformed, lecherous, lizard-like greaseball unparalleled in movie villainy. This oh-so-quotable, deep-fried slice of lunacy can’t be seen enough times, so click your heels three times and come on down to pay tribute to this CinemaScope comic nightmare.

Dir. David Lynch, 1990, 35mm, 124 min.

The Lost Boys

Before the popularity of Twilight or the Anne Rice Lestat novels, Joel Schumacher was making vampires sexycool with his seminal ‘80s rock n’ roll horror movie The Lost Boys. Like the Peter Pan gang referenced in the title, these boys never grow up – so what if that means they grow fangs and drink a little blood? Schumacher brings an undeniable sense of style and joy to the proceedings, creating a beachfront carnival world (a barely altered Santa Cruz) that pulses to the beat of ‘80s rock, New Wave, and hot nubile bodies. Starring a who’s-who of notables including Jason Patric, Kiefer Sutherland, Jami Gertz, Dianne Wiest and – best of all – the Coreys Feldman and Haim in their first turn as a tween heartthrob duo. Bottom line is that the movie is still a blast, a standard-setter for vampire cool and a scare-ride fairy tale that never gets old.

Dir. Joel Schumacher, 1987, 35mm, 97 min.
