TOUCH OF EVIL - FILM CLUB
TOUCH OF EVIL - FILM CLUB Tue 08/18/15
(1958) Widely regarded as the apotheosis of classic film noir, TOUCH OF EVIL (1958) opens with one of the greatest and longest tracking shots in cinema history, and just gets more delicious from there. A steamy B crime thriller about murder, kidnapping, and police corruption in a Mexican border town, EVIL’s cast includes Janet Leigh, Marlene Dietrich, and Dennis Weaver, and stars Charlton Heston and, of course, Welles himself in one of his greatest performances as sleazy, bloated Hank Quinlan, the cop with “the perfect arrest record”. Ranked 64th on the American Film Institute’s list of the top 100 American suspense films.

BEST OF ENEMIES
BEST OF ENEMIES Sat 08/29/15 To Wed 09/02/15
R, 1h27m, US. In the summer of 1968, television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. William F. Buckley, Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement. A Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis, Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. It was unlike anything TV had ever broadcast, and all the more shocking because it was live and unscripted.

F FOR FAKE - FILM CLUB Tue 09/15/15
(1974) The Kenosha Kid's valedictory film is an antic, free-wheeling documentary about an art forger, his biographer - who is also revealed to have penned a hoax biography of Howard Hughes - and Welles' own public deceits, including the radio broadcast of WAR OF THE WORLDS. Less a documentary than a jump-cutting, mischievous dissertation on authenticity, intellectual property, and the nature of truth, F FOR FAKE is the penultimate sleight-of-mind by a consummate film magician: prepare to be duped and delighted. Featuring as themselves Elmyr de Hory, Clifford Irving, Joseph Cotten, Oja Kadar, and Orson Welles.

MACBETH - FILM CLUB Tue 10/20/15
(1950) For Halloween month, Welles' horror movie: a chiaroscuro nightmare that underscores the "mania" in megalomania. Shot in 23 days on an aglet budget with stock costumes and papier-mache sets, Orson makes Shakespeare's shortest tragedy even shorter, cutting and pasting it to fit a haunted atmosphere and noir lighting, and propelling it with relentless tracking shots. As fast-beating as a terrified heart, MACBETH is a breathless downward slide into one man's madness, and in the opinion of some critics, possibly the director's most underrated film. With Jeanette Nolan, Dan O'Herlihy, Roddy McDowall, and, in the title role, Orson Welles.
 
Hamlet
Hamlet Sun 10/25/15
The Music Hall presents - Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game, Frankenstein at the National Theatre) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy.
 
THE LADY FROM SHANGHAI - FILM CLUB Tue 11/17/15
(1948) Producer Harry Cohn offered $1000 to anyone who could explain the plot to him. Who cares? This twisty, deeply misanthropic whodunit about a sailor who ends up accused of murder when he gets in over his head with a married couple features some of Welles' best set pieces, including one of the most bravura climactic sequences in the history of film, and brilliant cinematography by Charles Lawton Jr. "Killing me is killing yourself, the same thing." "Well, you know, I'm pretty tired of both of us." With Orson Welles, Rita Hayworth, and Everett Sloane.
 
CITIZEN KANE - FILM CLUB Tue 12/22/15
(1941) For the holidays, we give you: a snow globe. When no more remains to be said about a film, all you can do is watch it again. After the death of a publishing tycoon, a reporter goes on a hunt to discover the meaning of the last word to escape the great man's lips. Produced, directed, co-written by and starring the 25-year-old Orson Welles, and introducing Joseph Cotten, Agnes Morehead, Ray Collins, and many more. "...as fresh, as provoking, as entertaining, as funny, as sad, as brilliant as it ever was. Many agree it is the greatest film of all time. Those who differ cannot seem to agree on another candidate." - Roger Ebert. Happy sledding!
