An Evening With Paul Dooley, live!

The quintessential
eveningwithpauldooley_website2
9/22/2013 - 7:30PM

Come see Paul Dooley, character actor extraordinaire, workshop material for his brand-new one-man show all about his long and storied career, plus screen for us rare short films such as his tribute to Buster Keaton filmed when he was but a teenager!

He’s the quintessential “movie dad”, having played the irascible, yet loveable Midwestern pops from Breaking Away and Sixteen Candles. He’s a veteran of the legendary Second City improv troupe, occupying the elder statesman seat in Christopher Guest excursions like A Mighty Wind and Waiting For Guffman. He’s one of the most beloved Robert Altman ensemble players, with highly memorable turns in Popeye, A Wedding, A Perfect Couple and H.E.A.L.T.H. His face instantly radiates a warmth unmatched by most any other character actor of his stature — and he’s got some amazing stories to tell. He’s Paul Dooley, and he’s coming to the Cinefamily stage for an up-close and personal appearance, featuring a career-spanning Q&A and rare short films of his from throughout the decades! Touching on all facets of his epic life on stage and screen (did you know he was the co-creator of The Electric Company, or that he played opposite Walter Matthau in The Odd Couple on Broadway?), this evening is a bounty of chuckles, mayhem and cool footage.

Everything Is Terrible!’s found footage foot soldiers have outdone themselves yet again, for these psychedelic priests of discarded VHS are back with not one, but two new movies. So, what’s the deal with Comic Relief Zero? The opposite of special, this special’s jam-packed with cringe-inducing set-ups and bomb-dropping punchlines from yesteryear’s hottest ventriloquists, racists, prop comics, sexists, impersonators, homophobes, and talk show hosts. They all wish this footage was still in the landfills, for the streets will run blue with these wanton wisecracks. Wicka-wicka-what, you want more?! Okay, can we B real 4 a second? In EIT! Does The Hip-Hop, the gang’s taken the entire history of the co-opting of cool, and bashed it all together into one continuous mix to please both your earballs and eyelobes. We’re talking kids rappin’ ’bout stamps, and claymation doughboys spittin’ rhymes ’bout crescent rolls. You’d never in a billion years think old ladies can rap — but they totally can. And it don’t stop — WORD! Plus, the fur-covered, glitter-smothered EIT! gang will bring all the live costumed merriment that has made their shows (in)famous. Outrageously funny — and totally clean.

FREE SNEAK PREVIEW: The Punk Singer (Kathleen Hanna in person!)

Riot grrrl pioneer, moden rock icon!
punksinger_website
9/21/2013 - 7PM

Schedule permitting, Kathleen Hanna will be here in person for a Q&A after the film! Plus, DJ Tuna will be here to spin tunes before the show! Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of the punk band Bikini Kill and dance-punk trio Le Tigre, rose to national attention as the reluctant-but-never-shy voice of the Riot Grrrl movement. Becoming both one of the most famously outspoken feminist icons of her generation and a cultural lightning rod, Kathleen garnered a list of critics who wished she would just shut up — and a legion of fans who hoped she never would. So, in 2005, when Hanna stopped shouting, many wondered why. Through 20 years of archival footage and intimate interviews with Kathleen, The Punk Singer takes viewers on a fascinating tour of contemporary music, offering a never-before-seen view into the life of this fearless leader.
Dir. Sini Anderson, 2013, digital presentation, 80 min.

Fear and Loathing in Los Angeles (feat. Hunter S. Thompson rarities & "Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas"!)

Awesome gonzo rarities!
fearandloathing_website
9/15/2013 - 6PM

Co-presented by BOA/SOA GALLERY. Visit their show “Fear and Loathing In Los Angeles” (co-sponsored by the Gonzo Museum of Aspen) at 607 West Knoll, 90069.

It’s a program of stone-cold awesome video rarities featuring the father of gonzo journalism — and the crazy motherfucker who had his ashes shot out of a canon. On tap: a sneak preview of the gallery show (including original shotgun artworks by Hunter himself), excerpts from BBC’s “Omnibus” (featuring a remarkably eerie scene with Hunter and Ralph Steadman in the late ‘70s planning Hunter’s final monument, and his ashes being shot into the air), and the very rare British doc High Noon, covering the 1970 Aspen sheriff race between Hunter (under his “Freak Power” campaign banner) vs. the more traditional, conservative Carrol Whitmire. In this incredible document, you’ll see an unfiltered view of Hunter as he does drugs with local cops, stirs cocktails with a switchblade and shows how a drug-fueled, mad journalist changed Colorado politics forever. Plus, we conclude with a 35mm screening of Terry Gilliam’s always-rad Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, and a Q&A with Laila Nabulsi, producer of the film!
Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas Dir. Terry Gilliam, 1998, 35mm, 119 min.

The Keep (archival 35mm print, 9/12)

Ridiculously rare U.K. 35mm print!
keep_website2
9/12/2013 - 7:45PM

Ridiculously rare U.K. 35mm print! As much a foundational aesthetic document of Michael Mann’s early career as Thief or Miami Vice, the revisionist WWII thriller The Keep brims with ambition and panache, and is blanketed by one of Tangerine Dream’s best-ever pulsing film soundtracks. This hypnotic, deeply strange historical/sci-fi hybrid is an ominous portrait of Nazis who enlist an ailing Jewish historian (Ian McKellen) to prevent a Golem-like demon from busting out of its ancient fortress — while a the arrival of mysterious, paranormal stranger (Scott Glenn) may possibly signal an even greater foe. From one angle, The Keep uses as a launching point Raiders of the Lost Ark’s horror climax to imbue its WWII milieu with a sense of gathering extraterrestrial dread, while from another, it simultaneously falls in line with contemporary technological and political parables such as Blade Runner and Brazil. An impossibly dense, wildly unique entry in Mann’s filmography, The Keep has still never been released on DVD in any country — making this a quite rare opportunity to take in this visually stunning ‘80s genre mashup.

That's Sexploitation!: A Visual History (director Frank Henenlotter in person!)

Come trip the nip fantastic!

9/9/2013 - 8PM

“A wall-to-wall Lazy Susan of tits, ass and hilarity!” — John Waters

From the minds of Something Weird Video and Frank Henenlotter (director of not only such exploitation classics as Basket Case and Frankenhooker, but also the definitive doc Herschell Gordon Lewis: The Godfather of Gore), it’s forty years’ worth of sex in the cinema. See rare and lost clips from vintage “adults-only” feature films, shocking short subjects, quaint coin-drop arcade loops, naughty stags and smokers, and graphic sex educationals from days gone by. Archival footage shows the many genres that developed over the decades: sex hygiene, drug scares, glamour, panties and pasties, pretty pin-ups, goona-goona exotica, nudist camp, striptease and burlesque, arthouse sinema, nudie cuties, roughies, sexy psychedelia and pre-hardcore white-coaters. Come trip the nip fantastic with us through this seldom-seen, salacious side of American film history. All ticketholders will receive original copies of the vintage sex-ed/sex-hygiene manual “The True Facts of Life,” sold in the ’40s and ’50s after screenings of the film The Wages Of Sin!
Dir. Frank Henenlotter, 2013, digital presentation, 136 min.

Final Cut: Ladies And Gentlemen (encore screening!)

A found footage shot heard around the world!
finalcut_website
9/3/2013 - 7:45PM

A giddy found-footage shot heard ‘round the world! For years, we’ve been waiting for an intrepid soul to craft an entirely narrative feature comprised of images and sounds from other feature films — and Final Cut – Ladies And Gentlemen, the culmination of three years’ worth of editing by visionary Hungarian director György Pàlfi (Taxidermia), is nothing short of astonishing. With the totality of the moviegoing experience as its subject, Final Cut juggles clips from over 450 of the greatest films of all time, and bends deep reserves of movie tricks, tropes and triumphs into a single flowing arc. Iconic characters are raised through childhood, fall in love, go to war, marry — and as we jump from Marilyn Monroe to Jackie Chan, from Ozu to Lynch, from the Twenties to the Millenium and back again, we bask in the unity of our shared mythos. Whether you take it in as either an immersive art piece or the all-time highlight reel of your dreams, Final Cut taps directly into the cinematic subconscious with a sensitivity sure to captivate casual movie buffs and hardcore cineastes in equal measure.
Dir. György Pálfi, 2012, digital presentation, 84 min.
