YOU NEVER HAD IT: AN EVENING WITH BUKOWSKI

An exuberant, irreverent and fascinating foray, YOU NEVER HAD IT: AN EVENING WITH BUKOWSKI is a must-see for any Bukowski enthusiast!

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT KINO LORBER AND SLAMDANCE!

United States/Italy/Mexico. 2016. Directed by Matteo Borgardt. (52 mins.) Not Rated. in English

roducer and journalist Silvia Bizio introduces an evening with writer Charles Bukowski by recounting her time with the iconic author and the discovery of an extraordinary time capsule that lead to the documentary’s creation. YOU NEVER HAD IT is based on a video interview conducted by Bizio in January of 1981 with Bukowski at his home in San Pedro, California. It was a long night of smoking cigarettes and drinking wine with Bukowski and his soon to be wife, Linda Lee Beighle, talking about all kinds of subjects – from writers to sex, love and humanity. The interview was shot on Umatic tapes which have been digitized and edited along with new shots in Super8 of scenes of Los Angeles today and poems read by Bukowski. It is a cheeky, droll and inspiring diversion!

OUT STEALING HORSES

An enchanting coming-of-age tale, OUT STEALING HORSES is a memorable, moving narrative about memory and loss.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT MAGNOLIA PICTURES!

Norway/Sweden/Denmark. 2019. Directed by Hans Petter Morland. (123 mins.) Not Rated. in Swedish and Norwegian with English subtitles

This long-awaited adaptation of Per Petterson’s bestseller, OUT STEALING HORSES re-teams Stellan Skarsgard with director Hans Petter Moland (IN ORDER OF DISAPPEARANCE, A SOMEWHAT GENTLE MAN). Set in 1999, just before the dawn of the new millennium, recent widower Trond Sander (Skarsgard) has returned home to Norway after 40 years living in Sweden, only to find himself haunted by memories of a pivotal summer he spent with his father as a teenager. As Trond’s story unfolds piece by piece, he relives the unspeakable sorrows and tragedies along with the joys and freedoms that came with the summer of 1948. Expertly weaving between past and present, this breathtaking tale vividly contrasts the idyllic, lush colors of the wilderness in Trond’s memories against the cold, stark grays of his present, culminating in a sensational and resonant portrait of guilt and reconciliation.

FLANNERY

Fascinating, funny and frank, FLANNERY is an extraordinary documentary that allows us to follow the creative process of one of our country’s greatest writers.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT AMERICAN MASTERS PICTURES!

United States. 2019. Directed by Mark Bosco, Elizabeth Coffman. (97 mins.) Not Rated. in English

Winner of the first-ever Library of Congress/Lavine Family/Ken Burns Prize for Film, FLANNERY is the lyrical, intimate exploration of the life and work of author Flannery O'Connor, whose distinctive Southern Gothic style influenced a generation of artists and activists. With her family home at Andalusia as a backdrop – the Georgia farm where she grew up and later wrote her best known work – her sharply aware, starkly redemptive style comes into focus. Including conversations with those who knew her and those inspired by her, Flannery employs never-before-seen archival footage, newly discovered personal letters and her own published words (read by Mary Steenburgen) alongside original animations and music to examine the life and legacy of an American literary icon.

GORDON LIGHTFOOT: IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND

An exploration of the career, music and influence of legendary Canadian musical icon Gordon Lightfoot, IF YOU COULD READ MY MIND follows his evolution from Christian choirboy to troubled troubadour to international star and beloved Canadian icon.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT GREENWICH ENTERTAINMENT!

Canada. 2019. Directed by Martha Kehoe, Joan Tosoni. (91 mins.) Not Rated. in English

From the song he refuses to perform to his admiration for Drake, a songwriting legend reflects on his lyrics and longevity with candor and humor. At 80 years young (and currently recording another album), Gordon Lightfoot continues to entertain and enlighten. Personal archive materials and studio sessions paint an intimate picture of an artist in his element, candidly revisiting his idealistic years in Yorkville's coffeehouses, up through stadium tours and the hedonistic '70s. No matter how far his music travelled, he continued to write passionately about the country he called home. With his instantly recognizable voice and masterful guitar playing, Gordon Lightfoot remains influential and timeless.

With crackling performances and simmering tension, AMULET is a hauntingly assured work constructed with frightening momentum.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT MAGNOLIA PICTURES!

UK. 2020. Directed by Romola Garai. (99 mins.) Rated R. in English

Following an accident that leaves him homeless in London, former soldier Tomaz is brought to the rotting home of Magda, a lonely woman in desperate need of help as she looks after her dying mother.

But as he worms his way into their routine and begins to fall for Magda, Tomaz starts to notice strange, unexplainable phenomena and suspects something otherworldly and insidious.

HELMUT NEWTON: THE BAD & THE BEAUTIFUL

Expertly capturing the complexity of the controversial photographer, HELMUT NEWTON: THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL is the portrait of an artist whose haunting images speak for themselves.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT KINO LORBER!

United States. 2020. Directed by Gero von Boehm. (93 mins.) Not Rated. in English with some French and German

One of the great masters of photography, Helmut Newton made a name for himself exploring the female form, and his cult status continues long after his tragic death in a Los Angeles car crash in 2004. Newton worked around the globe, from Singapore to Australia to Paris to Los Angeles, but Weimar Germany was the visual hallmark of his work. Newton's unique and striking way of depicting women has always posed the question: did he empower his subjects or treat them as sexual objects? Through candid interviews with Grace Jones, Charlotte Rampling, Isabella Rossellini, Anna Wintour, Claudia Schiffer, Marianne Faithfull, Hanna Schygulla, Nadja Auermann and Newton's wife June (a.k.a. photographer Alice Springs), this documentary captures his legacy and seeks to answer questions about the themes at the core of his life's work – creating provocative and subversive images of women. Featuring home movies, archival footage and scores of iconic Newton photographs, HELMUT NEWTON: THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL is a wildly entertaining portrait of a controversial genius.

AI WEI WEI: YOURS TRULY

AI WEIWEI: YOURS TRULY goes to places it probably never expected to go, helping to further cement the activist artist's message of a universal fight against those who wish to suppress our voices.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT FIRST RUN FEATURES!

United States. 2020. Directed by Cheryl Haines, Gina Leibrecht. (76 mins.) Not Rated. in English with some Mandarin and Arabic

Human rights become profoundly personal when Ai Weiwei, China's most famous artist, transforms Alcatraz Island into an astonishing expression of socially-engaged art focused on the plight of the unjustly incarcerated. Made entirely from LEGO bricks, the work depicts the faces and names of 176 brave individuals who were incarcerated or exiled due to their beliefs, affiliations and nonviolent expressions of dissent. The work's companion piece, Yours Truly, invited visitors to compose messages of hope to many of the prisoners. Visitors were galvanized by the possibility that their voices might have an impact and by the time the exhibition ended, over 90,000 postcards had been sent. This impassioned and powerful film is a call to action, extending the incredible reach of Ai Weiwei's postcards by asking viewers to take the issue of global human rights personally.

Convinced that she deserves to be punished for crimes she committed at an earlier age, Veronica rebuffs her father's attempts to help.This compelling father-daughter tale is an emotionally layered and eloquently engaging mystery.

WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES

A highly stylized and sharply-observed coming-of-age satire, WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES is a near-genius glimpse at young people making their way in a world that doesn't make sense.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT OSCILLOSCIPE!

Japan. 2020. Directed by Makoto Nagahisa. (120 mins.) Not Rated. in Japanese with English subtitles

When four young orphans — Hikari, Ikuko, Ishi and Takemura — first meet, their parents’ bodies are being turned into dust, like fine Parmesan atop a plate of spaghetti Bolognese, and yet none of them can shed a tear. They're like zombies, devoid of all emotion, in this playfully profane feel-good black comedy. Now with no family, no future, no dreams and no way to move forward, the young teens decide that the first level of this new existence involves salvaging a gaming console, an old electric bass and a charred wok from their former homes — just enough to start a band and then conquer the world. Tragedy, comedy, music and teenage angst are all incorporated into this eccentric cinematic tsunami of unbridled imagination.
