Town Bloody Hall (w/ filmmakers Chris Hegedus & D.A. Pennebaker in person!)

11/22/2016 - 7:30PM

Co-presented by the International Documentary Association and the Los Angeles Review of Books

On April 30th, 1971, a young D.A. Pennebaker shot a panel on the subject of Women’s Liberation. A curious, second-wave era format was put forth: the panel would consist of ringleader Norman Mailer (hot on the tails of the publication of his incendiary The Prisoner of Sex) and four female, feminist (though not necessarily like-minded) panelists: president of the National Organization for Women (NOW) Jacqueline Ceballos, the beguiling and whip-smart author Germaine Greer, literary critic Diana Trilling (Mailer’s clear favorite), and writer and critic Jill Johnston (who puts forth the panel’s most theatrical component: a poetic, lesbian manifesto). What begins as a “panel” quickly devolves into a farcical trial of the stubborn, bravado-y Mailer, who can’t seem to stop himself from throwing out winners like “you’re all singularly without wit!” and “be a lady!”, his face filling Pennebaker’s patient frame. And the stars of the moment aren’t just on stage—they’re in the audience too; the panel fields questions from the likes of Betty Friedan, Susan Sontag, and Elizabeth Hardwick. Despite the event’s high profile, high energy, high voltage status, Pennebaker stashed the footage away—that is, until he met Hegedus several years later. At her urging, Town Bloody Hall became the first film the duo completed together, reminding us—in the era of twitter-quips and declarations of the lost art of debate—that the competition between wit and furor has always raged, in foolish and brilliant minds alike.

Dir Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker, 1979, Digibeta, 85 min.

Master Class with Philip Kaufman + The Right Stuff

the-rightstuff
11/19/2016 - 12:30PM

Co-presented by the Writers Guild Foundation

VIP tickets include preferred seating and entry to a private pre-reception with Philip Kaufman at 11:45am.

Philip Kaufman’s career as a writer and director has spanned over fifty years and multiple genres. After his 1964 debut film Goldstein showcased his innovative style, he went on to demonstrate his versatility by writing and directing westerns (The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid), coming-of-age comedies (The Wanderers), provocative literary dramas (The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Henry and June), horror (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) and thrillers (Quills, Rising Sun). Kaufman achieved peak critical acclaim when he wrote and directed the film adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s book The Right Stuff, which went on to win four Academy Awards and a nomination for Best Picture. Most recently, Kaufman wrote and directed HBO’s Hemingway & Gelhorn, which was nominated for 15 Primetime Emmys.

In this special Master Class co-hosted by the Writers Guild Foundation, Kaufman discusses his prolific career, his rich and reflective filmmaking style, and his sharp skill for adaptation.

The Right Stuff
Adapted from Tom Wolfe’s 1979 best-selling book of the same name, The Right Stuff tells a quintessentially American tale: of seven military pilots turned astronauts. Project Mercury, the first manned spaceflight by the United States is the pièce de résistance in this history of flight that stretches back to the Navy, Marine, and Air Force pilots that came before flying included trips to space. Filled with stars (luminous spheres of plasma) and stars (Fred Ward, Dennis Quaid, Sam Shepard, Ed Harris, Barbara Hershey), The Right Stuff is a film as novelistic and landmark as the true story it adapts.

Dir. Philip Kaufman, 1983, 35mm, 193 min.

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (w/ Philip Kaufman in person!)

Bodysnatch1
11/18/2016 - 11PM

Remakes can evoke a sense of dread and panic from filmgoers, and how can you blame them? The nuances and feel of OG versions almost always get lost when a popular, iconic film is remade. To the contrary, with Invasion of the Body Snatchers, director Philip Kaufman was not only able to make a film that stands up to the source material (without creating a “pod” copy), but one that is considered by many to surpass the original. Mysterious spores from space descend on San Francisco, causing the city’s inhabitants to become emotionless, detached shells of their former selves, while two badass health inspectors try to get to the bottom of the pandemonium in this 70s-set retelling of the allegory that keeps on giving — and features amazing performances from Donald Sutherland, a baby-faced Jeff Goldblum, and a typecast-shattering role for Leonard Nimoy. Once the pods start to replicate, there’s no need for hate… or love.

Dir. Philip Kaufman, 1978, Digital Presentation, 115 min.

The Wanderers (w/ Philip Kaufman in person!)

11/18/2016 - 7:30PM

New restoration!

In apricot-colored nylon jackets with their name emblazoned in red on the back, “The Wanderers” signal themselves as the toughest greaser gang in the Bronx. These hot headed rumble fish are out to prove it all, setting their sights on all the other gangs in their multi-ethnic borough. Set at the end of the doo-wop era, this underseen period piece manages to satisfy both nostalgic and revisionist urges with its detail, stacked soundtrack, and rich complexity. Based on Richard Price’s first novel (published when he was only 24) and directed with nuanced craft by Philip Kaufman, this forgotten gem, recently restored by Kino Lorber Repertory, captures with humor and poignancy the halcyon days of wandering urban youth.

Toni Erdmann (Free sneak peek w/ actors Sandra Huller & Peter Simonischek in person!)

TONI ERDMANN STILL 2
11/13/2016 - 4PM

Co-presented by Women of Cinefamily

This third feature from German filmmaker Maren Ade (Everyone Else) breathes life into the “sadcom,” with a familial relationship study pulsing with the gut-wrenching paternal love and all-too-familiar second-hand embarrassment wrought by most fathers on their unsuspecting offspring… dialed up to 11. The raw, beating heart of Toni Erdmann lies in the exhaustive efforts of lonely, prankster father Winifred—whose nom de guerre is the titular Toni—toward his overworked daughter Ines, as the former stages wild, invasive stunts with the goal of softening the latter’s stone-cold corporate soul. With nods to Andy Kaufman and Rip Taylor, the indefatigable performativity of both Winifred and Ines—he a costume-donning joker, she a besuited consultant—eventually reveals poignant moments of father-daughter connection, which, via a hirsute behemoth, a clothing-optional birthday party, fake hobo teeth and a cheap wig, results in the most painfully funny film to emerge from both Cannes and Toronto this year.

Dir. Maren Ade, 2016, DCP, 162 min.

Little Cigars

LittleCigars008
11/12/2016 - 9:30PM

After burning her mob boss husband’s testicles with a cigar and robbing him at gunpoint, Cleo (played with spot-on Lady Macbeth-esque abandon by Golden Globe nominee/Playboy model Angel Tompkins) sets out to begin her new life as an anonymous waitress in an unknown town, where she meets two members of an all little people carnival troupe. They invite her to their show and she quickly realizes it’s a thinly veiled ruse to facilitate robbing customers, casinos, laundromats, and more—and she can’t resist getting in on the heist! This wildly funny take on the romantic outlaw subgenre features career-best performances from Billy Curtis and Jerry Maren (of The Wizard of Oz fame), to boot!

The Garbage Pail Kids Movie (w/ Kevin Thompson, Bob Bell, and Art Gil in person!)

Garbage-Pail-Kids-Movie-120815
11/12/2016 - 7PM

Being gross never felt so good! Take our hand as we pay homage to the greatest, grimiest and downright weirdest feature film ever, based upon the magic of childrens’ trading cards! Made at the very height of late ‘80s Garbage Pail Kids fever—with heavy hitters Kevin Thompson (Blade Runner) and Arturo Gil (Spaceballs) from the little people community—this live-action origin tale takes some of the card line’s most famous mutants and posits them as a Greek chorus of confidantes to Dodger (Mackenzie Astin), a 12-year-old boy out to both defeat brain-dead bullies and win the heart of a disinterested teenage New Wave fashion designer. This potentially wholesome affair is liberally doused with enough farting, beer drinking, hair-sniffing, puking, sewer diving, wink-wink pedophiliac subtext, booger-picking and musical numbers to send any parent screaming for the hills—making TGPKM the very definition of sublimely so-wrong-it’s-right late-night viewing. Did we mention the musical numbers?

Dir. Rod Amateau, 1987, 35mm, 96 min.

Golden Kingdom

2016-GoldenKingdom-Perkins-Nar-04
11/12/2016 - 5PM

Golden Kingdom is the first international feature film produced in Myanmar since its recent reopening.

Golden Kingdom is a narrative feature film about four orphan boys, novice monks living in a Buddhist monastery in a remote part of Northeast Burma. The head monk departs on a long journey from which he may never return, leaving the boys alone in the middle of the forest. Once the boys are on their own, strange, magical occurrences begin to pass. Orphan Witazara realizes he must protect the three other boys throughout this series of bizarre events, which threaten to unravel the fabric of the young monks’ reality.

Dir. Brian Perkins, 2015, DCP, 103 min.

The Hollywood Shorties (w/ director Ryan Steven Green + actors Jimmy Briscoe & Joe Gieb in person!)

11/11/2016 - 7:30PM

In 1939, calls were out for little people in Hollywood; The Wizard of Oz was casting the film’s iconic munchkins.They came to Los Angeles from all over the world, and many stayed, meaning that Hollywood was suddenly home to a dense and vibrant community of little people. There’s power in numbers, and by 1948 Billy Barty (who eventually formed the Little People of America) started a little people-only softball team. By the 70s, the team was playing basketball. They were athletes, advocates, fundraisers, and entertainers—showmen in the true spirit of their Tinseltown namesake, going on to play halftime shows at Lakers and Clippers games and more. The Hollywood Shorties are no more—but Ryan Steven Green (nephew of late Shorty Larry Green) takes us on a tour of the players victories and show-stopping performances—on and off screen.

Sam Green & Yo La Tengo Live Score: The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller (Off-site at the Skirball)

rbf-montreal
11/10/2016 - 8PM

Presented by Skirball Cultural Center

Experience “live documentary” with Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green and legendary indie rock band Yo La Tengo at this very special one-night only event in the Skirball’s intimate 300-seat Ahmanson Ballroom. The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller traces the career of twentieth-century futurist, architect, inventor, and author R. Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983). An early proponent of environmental stewardship, Fuller spoke persuasively about contemporary design and architecture’s ability to tackle issues of sustainability and conservation and to stimulate radical societal change. Green’s live narration is accompanied by Yo La Tengo performing their original score on stage.

“A singular experience, and a collective one, with the potential for human connection and human error.” – The New York Times

“…A movie being born as you see it and hear it, as alive as music.” – Rebecca Solnit

Day for Night

la-noche-americana
11/6/2016 - 10PM

with a set by DJ Eric Penna!

Rare 35mm print courtesy of BFI!

Considered by many to be the greatest film ever made about movies, Truffaut’s Day for Night tells of a frustrated filmmaker (Truffaut himself) desperately trying to finish a film whilst attempting to control the melodrama, romance, and personality clashes brewing amongst his crew. The original french title, La nuit Américaine (“American night”) refers to the process of shooting scenes in daylight and then manipulating the film so the shots appear to have occurred at night—in other words, “day for night.” But the coy Truffaut certainly wouldn’t have missed the homophonous l’ennui Américain (“American boredom”), hinting at the film’s delightfully intelligent skewering of all things cinematic. Is cinema nothing but a farce? Is there any truth in film? Does art create culture or does culture create art? Truffaut’s insistence on ambiguity was so intense that it provoked the ire of Jean Luc Godard, whose personal attack on the film effectively ended their relationship. With an all-star cast including Jean-Pierre Léaud and Jacqueline Bisset, Day for Night is one of Truffaut’s finest achievements—comedically, dramatically, and philosophically—so don’t miss the rare chance to see it on 35mm!

Platoon (30th anniversary w/ Matt Zoller Seitz and Jim Beaver)

MCDPLAT EC009
11/5/2016 - 5PM

Co-presented by Talk Easy with Sam Fragoso

“I’m 70 years old,” said Oliver Stone in a recent interview, “and I’m still angry.” Even detractors can’t dismiss the sustained anger—and political discontentment—that has propelled his films for over four decades. As Stone has morphed from David into Goliath (B-movie filmmaker into big-budget studio helmer), he has remained principled—an uncompromising and apoplectic socio-political gadfly. Perhaps no movie showcases Stone’s ceaseless frustration with the Powers that Be more effectively than Platoon, the first in his iconic Vietnam trilogy. Stuck between a moral crisis and a hard place, Charlie Sheen delivers a career-best performance as Chris, an impressionable young soldier who must grapple with the senseless of a vexing war.

In celebration of Platoon’s 30th Anniversary and the publication of The Oliver Stone Experience (New York Magazine TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz’s no-holds-barred book), Seitz joins us for a conversation with actor/Vietnam vet Jim Beaver (Deadwood, Supernatural, Justified).

Dir. Oliver Stone, 1986, 35mm, 120 min.

The Point (Off-site at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater)

11/5/2016 - 2:30PM

Co-presented by Animation Breakdown

The film will be preceded by a puppet show!

On the heels of his Grammy win for “Everybody’s Talkin’,” pioneering singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson submerged himself deep in an LSD trip and emerged with his sixth studio album, the hallucinogen-fueled, narrative-driven The Point! Quickly adapted into an animated TV film that first aired in 1971 as an ABC Movie of the Week, this bedtime story—narrated à la The Princess Bride by not Peter Falk, but a post-Midnight Cowboy Dustin Hoffman—begets an outsider tale of young Oblio (voiced by Mike Lookinland, aka OG Bobby Brady) whose seemingly “point-less” existence leads to his exile from The Land of Point into a journey of self-acceptance alongside his trusty K9, Arrow. The Point’s visual style deals in psychedelia strange enough for animation aficionados, yet safe and inviting enough for youngins, with an earnest message of tolerance forming its cross-generational heart. If listening to “Me and My Arrow” doesn’t inspire an instant Proustian rush, we promise you’ll soon count it among your all-time favorites.

The Oliver Stone Files featuring The Hand (w/ Oliver Stone and Matt Zoller Seitz)

The hand
11/4/2016 - 7:30PM

Co-presented by Talk Easy with Sam Fragoso

Stone will be signing copies of Matt Zoller Seitz’s new book, The Oliver Stone Experience, which will be available for purchase during the event. Signing available only with book purchase.

Over the course of five years, New York Magazine TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz and Stone himself dissected the divisive auteur’s life and career with incomparable candor, leading to the recently published, collaborative compendium, The Oliver Stone Experience. The two join us for a conversation and a screening of The Hand!

Michael Caine plays worldly cartoon-strip artist Jonathan Lansdale at the peak of his career in this delightfully indulgent slice of soupy horror from Oliver Stone. Jonathan and his wife are having marital troubles, which culminate in a fight during a road trip that results in Jonathan losing his HAND! Clearly interested in genre, (see The Island and Dressed to Kill) Michael Caine was allegedly taking roles in horror films to pay for some garage he was building–although you wouldn’t guess this was a film for hire based upon this unhinged, completely manic performance. Mislabeled by many as Oliver Stone’s first film (Seizure and Last Year in Vietnam came before), The Hand shows a different side of Stone in the context of genre cinema, with special appendage-related effects by Stan Winston!) and goofy yet biting melodrama.
