Barry Lyndon

Barry Lyndon

Stanley Kubrick / 1975, UK-USA
185min / 35mm

Stanley Kubrick bent the conventions of the historical drama to his own will in this dazzling vision of a pitiless aristocracy, adapted from a novel by William Makepeace Thackeray. In picaresque detail, Barry Lyndon chronicles the adventures of an incorrigible trickster (Ryan O’Neal) whose opportunism takes him from an Irish farm to the battlefields of the Seven Years’ War and the parlors of high society. For the most sumptuously crafted film of his career, Kubrick recreated the decadent surfaces and intricate social codes of the period, evoking the light and texture of eighteenth-century painting with the help of pioneering cinematographic techniques and lavish costume and production design, all of which earned Academy Awards. The result is a masterpiece—a sardonic, devastating portrait of a vanishing world whose opulence conceals the moral vacancy at its heart.

Filmworker

Tony Zierra / 2018, USA
93min / digital

Leon Vitali was a rising British television actor when Stanley Kubrick picked him for the role of Lord Bullingdon in Barry Lyndon. That first encounter with the famed auteur proved decisive — he swiftly resolved to devote the rest of his life working for the director, this time behind the scenes, and took on just about every job available: casting director, acting coach, location scouter, sound engineer, color corrector, A.D., promoter, and eventually restorer of Kubrick’s films. Tony Zierra’s affecting documentary profiles the devoted “filmworker” — Vitali’s preferred job title — as he enthusiastically recounts his days with the notoriously meticulous, volatile and obsessive director. The experiences brought both tremendous sacrifice and glowing pride. Filmworker celebrates the invisible hands that shape masterpieces, reminding us that behind every great director, there is a Leon Vitali. – Telluride Film Festival

“Movie love at its purest. A celebration of its anonymous inhabitants’ role in bringing our collective dreams to life.” The Washington Post

“Five stars! Tender. A revealing and stirring celebration of one of cinema’s unacknowledged heroes.” The Guardian

He learns that the company that runs the town is behind the drug. He confronts the town boss Sheppard Peter Boyle and soon has two hit men heading toward Io with a plan to kill him. As the seconds tick down to the next space shuttle's arrival, O'Neil plots to meet them and faces the biggest challenge of his life. Rovi

One Sings, The Other Doesn't

Agnés Varda / 1977, Venezuela-France-Belgium
120min / digital

Agnés Varda’s enchanting ode to female friendship and liberation is part blissed-out bohemian musical, part revolutionary cri de cœur. Spanning more than a decade, it traces the ups and downs—abortion, heartbreak, marriage, motherhood—of two friends, Pauline (Mairesse) and Suzanne (Liotard). Even as their lives radically diverge, they remain steadfastly devoted to one another while finding ways to empower other women: one as a traveling feminist folk singer, the other as a reproductive rights activist. Set against France’s pro-choice struggle—of which Varda herself was on the frontlines—this tender and intimate epic celebrates the power of women to lift one another up. In French with English subtitles.

Lisa Conroy is the last person you'd expect to find in a highway-side 'sports bar with curves',— but as general manager at Double Whammies, she's come to love the place and its customers. An incurable den mother, she nurtures and protects her girls fiercely--but over the course of one trying day, her optimism is battered from every direction...Double Whammies sells a big, weird American fantasy, but what happens when reality pokes a bunch of holes in it?

"A dude setting a feminist comedy in a sexy sports bar? Bold move. Titling it with a bra joke? Bolder. But writer/director Andrew Bujalski's new comedy, Support the Girls, does it." Ashley Moreno, Austin Chronicle

"It's a biting commentary on American labor and capitalism in the form of a mainstream crowd pleaser." The Film Stage

"The sharp-elbowed humor is laced with aching tenderness, tightrope-tense frustrations over money and love, and an underlying mix of social pathologies that bubbles through the show-biz surfaces" The New Yorker

Pit Stop

Pit Stop

Jack hill / 1968, USA
92min / digital

A slam-bang crash-o-rama -- a peek into the deadly subculture of “figure-8 racing” beautifully and effortlessly directed by Corman-era exploitation master Jack Hill (SPIDER BABY, THE SWINGING CHEERLEADERS, COFFY, FOXY BROWN.) Richard Davalos (EAST OF EDEN) stars as a greaser who winds up in jail after a street race gone wrong. Bailed out by a veteran race promoter, Davalos is put on the deadly “figure-8” racing circuit where he comes up against a maniacal serial winner (a deliciously over-the-top Sid Haig.) Equal parts hi-octane race documentary and deeply-rendered character study, PIT STOP is arguably Hill’s greatest artistic achievement. No CGI here; every terrifying high-speed impact is felt for real. An outstanding supporting cast including Brian Donlevy (THE GREAT MCGINTY), Ellen Burstyn (THE EXORCIST) and Beverly Washburn (SPIDER BABY) round out this nearly-lost miracle of low-budget thrills.

“Though there have been many films about racing, it is safe to say that there has never been before or since a film like PIT STOP.” Michael Den Boer, 10K Bullets
