FREE SNEAK PREVIEW: Finding Vivian Maier (filmmakers in person!)

3/22/2014 - 5PM

Found in trunks buried deep within forgotten storage lockers were 100,000 photographs charting the life of one of the 20th century’s greatest photographers — a breathtaking artist who very nearly remained a total undiscovered mystery. In much the same way that In The Realms of the Unreal’s Henry Darger was only brought to the world’s attention after his death, Finding Vivian Maier charts the impossible story of an unassuming nanny who, over the many years she lived roaming from family to family, secretly snapped an endless stream of insightful and era-defining street photography: a body of work that has since been hailed by art critics the world over. John Maloof, the film’s co-director and the young man who first brought Maier’s work to light after discovering her discarded photos in an auctioned storage box, takes us on a guided tour of both his obsessive quest to piece together a near-complete Maier archive, and the ever-deepening enigma of Maier’s equally obsessive, inwardly drawn identity. Never-before-seen photographs, films and interviews with dozens of folks who thought they knew the “real” Vivian further illuminate this most juicy of cultural whodunits. Co-directors John Maloof and Charlie Siskel in person!
Dirs. John Maloof & Charlie Siskel, 2013, digital presentation, 83 min.

Two definitive epochs mark underground rock of the last few decades: BS (Before Slint) and AS (After Slint). A staple of the Louisville, KY scene before their 1990 album Spiderland definitively laid down the gauntlet and provided a road map for untold scores of “post-rock” bands around the globe to follow, the short-lived but long-loved Slint has remained one of music fandom’s most mythical, sphinxlike bands — but Breadcrumb Trail, the brand-new documentary by Lance Bangs, now reveals the minds behind the life-changing music.

Throughout the ‘80s, the members of Slint grew up forming bands, breaking up and reforming in different configurations: playing hardcore shows while still in elementary school, touring with Samhain as 14-year-olds, recording as melodic hardcore band Squirrel Bait at 15, forming Slint in their late teens and recording the classic Spiderland before they were 21. And then — they broke up before the album’s release, giving no interviews and vanishing into their own shadows. After two decades have passed, Bangs has assembled unseen footage of the teens writing/arranging Spiderland, as well as the first on-camera interviews with the band members and their contemporaries trying to decipher what they had been through. Also featuring Steve Albini, Ian Mackaye, David Grubbs, David Yow, James Murphy and archival material from Will Oldham! Domenico DeCaro (KXLU 88.9fm) will be here to DJ before the show!

Next Stop, Greenwich Village (archival 35mm print!)

nextstop_480_309
3/16/2014 - 5PM

As much an autobiography as it is a dose of good-natured ribbing on his own generation’s foibles (in much the same manner as Girls functions for Lena Dunham), Paul Mazursky’s Next Stop, Greenwich Village is a warm-hearted, incisive look at the pitfalls of young love in the incredible milieu of New York City in the mid-’50s. Before the modern folkie scene took root in the East Village, it was still the coolest place in town, brimming with an epic counterculture and a gaggle of aspiring artists of all kinds — and it’s here that Mazursky conducts his bittersweet remembrance, as wannabe actor Larry Lapinsky (the late Lenny Baker) seeks fame, fortune and refuge from his overbearing Jewish mother (Shelley Winters.) The supporting cast for this gauzy, breezy comedic jaunt is astounding: Christopher Walken, Jeff Goldblum, Little Shop of Horrors’ Ellen Greene, and even blaxploitation legend Antonio Fargas (Car Wash, Foxy Brown.)
Dir. Paul Mazursky, 1976, 35mm, 111 min. (Print courtesy of Fox Archive)

Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice + Drinking Buddies (Paul Mazursky & Joe Swanberg in person!)

bobandcarol_website
3/15/2014 - 5PM

Joe Swanberg (director of last year’s festival hit Drinking Buddies) counts Paul Mazursky as one of his all-time favorite filmmakers — join Joe and Paul in live conversation, plus a double feature of Drinking Buddies and Paul’s breakout swingin’ 1969 hit Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice!

Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (world premiere of new DCP restoration!) – 5:00pm
A cheeky glance at the Sexual Revolution from that juicy upper-middle-class SoCal perspective, courtesy of director Paul Mazursky’s first feature. Ted (Elliot Gould) and Alice (Dyan Cannon) are friends with Bob (Robert Culp) and Carol (Natalie Wood.) Having dealt with marital problems, the latter couple return from a New Age retreat, and in a new spirit of openness, shares the details of their love lives and affairs with a simultaneously terrified and titillated Ted and Alice. These disclosures forge a closer bond between the couples, and, in the twilight of the Swingin’ Sixties, the question is: how close is too close? Very wisely, Mazursky goes for keenly observed humor instead of soap opera, and brings out the best in his performers.
Dir. Paul Mazursky, 1969, DCP, 101 min.

Drinking Buddies – approx. 8:00pm
Utilizing his very personal brand of what Drinking Buddies co-star Jake Johnson has dubbed “controlled chaos filmmaking”, filmmaker Joe Swanberg (24 Exposures, Happy Christmas, Hannah Takes The Stairs) has fashioned a warmly naturalistic, 21st-century take on the fluidity of modern romance, using the music of chance and his players’ keen wits to dictate the delectable proceedings. As employees in a microbrewery, Olivia Wilde and Jake Johnson are perfect for each other — except for the small detail that both of them are already in steadily functioning relationships (with Ron Livingston and Anna Kendrick, respectively.) As the flirting between them escalates, their wills are tested over one crucial weekend when the significant others are away… Surprisingly, for a film that contains almost-entirely improvised dialogue and storylines, the film retains a solid emotional base, and never wavers on its narrative core. As well, Mazursky’s Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice remains a huge influence on Swanberg, as apparent in both Drinking Buddies’ deft handling of complex, contemporary adult themes, and its breezy comedic style.
Dir. Joe Swanberg, 2013, DCP, 90 min.

An Evening With Paul Mazursky (feat. "Alex In Wonderland")

AN EVENING WITH PAUL MAZURSKY – 7:30pm
Few filmmakers working in the pop Hollywood idiom were able to sublimely capture the electric nature of the zeitgeist as many times throughout their brilliant career as tonight’s guest of honor, writer/director Paul Mazursky. Starting in the colorful ‘60s with his screenplay for the Peter Sellers LSD comedy I Love You, Alice B. Toklas and his debut directorial feature Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, continuing through the ‘70s with Blume In Love, Harry and Tonto and An Unmarried Woman, into the ‘80s and beyond with films like Down and Out In Beverly Hills, Mazursky perfected the form of the dramatic comedy, earning five Oscar nominations along the way. Even more amazing still, Paul was able to craft commercial and critical successes that simultaneously addressed the most modern of subjects, and retained a timelessness that makes them just as fresh now as they have ever been. Join screenwriter Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood, The People vs. Larry Flynt, the forthcoming Big Eyes) as he welcomes Paul to the Cinefamily stage, for an unforgettable evening of big-screen memories — plus, a screening of his autobiographical 1970 film Alex In Wonderland!

ALEX IN WONDERLAND – approx. 9:00pm
After scoring a major success with his debut feature Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, Paul Mazursky dipped into the tried-and-true “write what you know” well, added an extra exciting layer of Fellini-inspired whimsical invention, and emerged with Alex In Wonderland: a dead-on satire of the burgeoning New Hollywood, and of what it’s like for an up-and-coming hot director struggling to find his vaunted second project. Donald Sutherland, fresh off his starring turn in that same year in Altman’s M.A.S.H., is the film’s fictional Mazursky stand-in. As he wanders L.A. looking for inspiration, he runs into Jeanne Moreau and Federico Fellini (playing themselves, in a proto version of the now-commonplace filmic practice of celebrity self-reference), and often trips out in a brand of fanciful flight that will tickle the pleasure center of any Seventies fanatic. A severely underscreened flick, and one of Mazursky’s favorites from his own rad filmography!
Alex In Wonderland Dir. Paul Mazursky, 1970, digital presentation, 110 min.

FREE SNEAK PREVIEW: The Raid 2 (director & cast members in person!)

3/13/2014 - 7:45PM

Schedules permitting, filmmaker Gareth Evans & cast members in person! In 2012, a certain Indonesian action flick roared like a freight train through our collective moviegoing consciousness, with all the same wildly entertaining force that heralded the Stateside debuts of stars Jackie Chan and Tony Jaa, or filmmaker John Woo — and we were totally bowled over. U.K. ex-pat Gareth Evans’ impossibly fun The Raid: Redemption — a triumph of sinwey, smart, lightning-fast genre work that showcased the latest bleeding-edge innovations in martial arts moviemaking — left us gasping for more. And as if directly answering our plea, Evans has just given us an even bigger, more ambitious gift. Immediately following the harrowing events of the original, The Raid 2 tracks the first film’s lone battle-beaten cop as he’s pressured to join an anti-corruption task force, in order to guarantee protection for his wife and child. Leaving behind the single locale of the first film’s dystopian apartment block, this epic sequel spills across the streets of Jakarta, from prison yards to subway cars, as Evans packs The Raid 2 with enough jaw-dropping body blows to rival a Hollywood studio’s entire summer slate.
Dir. Gareth Evans, 2014, DCP, 148 min.

Just Like Being There (filmmaker in person, plus gig poster gallery show!)

3/10/2014 - 7:30PM

Filmmaker Scout Shannon in person — plus, after the film, join us on the back patio for a gallery show compiling the best of local L.A. poster artists! Long after the gig is over, after the band’s packed up and left town, and as the memories linger, the only real and tangible thing that remains — is the poster. The art of the gig poster, which started with flair in the psychedelic late-‘60s, has truly blossomed with immense creativity in our mellifluous era of indie rock; Scout Shannon’s in-depth documentary Just Like Being There is the filmic love letter on the subject, surveying all the major artists nationwide in the artistic pursuit of elevating the Rock Show into even more blissful spheres, along with providing the real nitty-gritty on the craft of screen printing. Featuring live performances by Spoon, Nada Surf, Archers of Loaf, The Thermals and Tokyo Police Club. Tonight’s presentation of the film comes from the special 100-minute “festival” version of the film, only shown once before at SXSW 2012 and never again, and featuring bonus live performances.

FREE SNEAK PREVIEW: Grand Piano (Elijah Wood in person!)

grandpiano_website
3/4/2014 - 7:30PM

Schedule permitting, Grand Piano star Elijah Wood will be here in person for a Q&A after the film! Whether it’s through artform-advancing feats like Gravity’s hyper-realistic outer space renderings, or something more manically simple like Phone Booth’s tunnel vision tension, we love our high-concept movie feats that unfold in real-time — and the brand-new Grand Piano has enough flair to spare. The film revolves around a particularly intense central performance from Elijah Wood, here playing a reclusive concert pianist coaxed out of a difficult early retirement in order to play a landmark concert — one in which he cannot ever hit a single mistake, thanks to a mysterious sniper (John Cusack) taking his wife hostage, ready to pull the trigger at the ringing-out of the first bum note. “[Eugenio} Mira’s tale is absolutely sweeping. It’s a visceral movie, one that immediately brings you to sympathy with [Wood]. The character begins the film high-strung, wanting to live down a major embarrassment — it’s something simply everyone can relate to. Mira then makes the wise choice of never giving the audience a glimpse of his sad day. We don’t need to; we understand its gravity through his performance alone.” — Fangoria
