Another Year, Another Superb Calendar

CHICAGO (PRWEB) September 25, 2006

Hyde Park this fall will again be the epicenter of the programming of various films in Chicago. Post New Vage Godard sits next to the black disks of John Garfield and Robert Ryan; the streets of American cinema of the 70 rooms next to the nastiest / camping of the horror of the 70 U.S. in the early films Hollywood starring, directed or written by women flank a survey of jazz music in movies and films on jazz.


Standard histories of Hollywood

often overlook the great contribution made by women in powerful positions of the directors, writers and actor-authors. ? The women of early Hollywood writers, directors, stars? features rare pictures with stars like Lillian Gish (The Wind), Clara Bow (Mantrap), Greta Garbo (The Kiss), Mary Pickford (Sparrow), and highlights the remarkable and little-known writers of some of the best women in the day: Marian Fremont (Griffith? s poor love), Speed ​​Limit Agnes Christie Johnson (King Vidor? Patsy s), Anita Loos (Wild and woolly), as well as women’s work-directors, like The Blot (Lois Weber ), (Alice Guy Blache), The Red Kimono (Dorothy Davenport) and Her Defiance (Cleo Madison). This series presents a compelling argument for the place of women writers, directors and stars in the early canon of Hollywood.

The second part of Doc? s Jean-Luc Godard retrospective offers a generous sampling of his work post-weekend. His stint as dogmatic Maoist aesthetic (as part of the Dziga Vertov Group) and video artist will be explored. This series will give Chicago a chance to evaluate its aesthetic and political development, and to see rare works and controversial? from Sympathy for the Devil (certainly the only film of the Rolling Stones concert to include assassinating political diatribes and Marxist) to Godard? s self-conscious about film chief, 1982? s Passion. The super-rare 1990 film, New Vage will be screened in Chicago for the first time in a decade or more. As a special treat, each screening will be accompanied by screenings of short films DVD video rare, many unavailable in any format in North America.

1970s in America were a time for horror. This kind doesn? T get nearly the amount of respect it deserves, and hasn? T got a lot of respect for Doc lately. But? Revisit the nightmare? American? rectify this. Films with slogans that you just drag theater (Deadbed? The bed that eats?) Mix with frightening favorites, William Friedkin? S The Exorcist and John Carpenter? S Halloween. The modern gore that audiences flock today (Saw, Hostel, etc.) wouldn t be the same without these lovably terrifying flicks. As a special treat, Halloween screen twice on its namesake night with a costume contest at midnight session .????

American cinema of the 60s to the 80s saw the reinvention of genres and input? anti-hero? into the mainstream of Hollywood. The gritty realism of the period (Scorces? S Raging Bull, Schlesinger? S Midnight Cowboy, etc.) has influenced scores of filmmakers today? S? Michael Mann for Quentin Tarantino. This series is a chance for moviegoers around the world to watch movies they like on their support for, crisp 35mm .????

John Garfield and Robert Ryan have more in common than the films they have boxing? ? 1-2 Punch: The Films of John Garfield & Robert Ryan? explores this affinity. The series offers a look at black American hero neglected in various roles. Fantastic in movies by some great authors (Max Ophuls? S Caught, Nicholas Ray? S On Dangerous Ground and Anthony Mann? S Men at War) each showcases the actors? special skills. A pioneer of the method of play, John Garfield that 32 films before the Red Scare to the early retirement. But this series is an excellent taste of his great talent? from a wounded hero Delmer Daves World War II? Pride of the Navy’s most famous role as a mob-lawyer Abraham Polonsky? S group of evil. Robert Ryan had a long career and avoided HUAC (although they were a threat everywhere). It turned in great performances by Robert Wise? S The Set-Up (as a boxer stranded) and Ophuls? Taken S (opposite James Mason and Barbara Del Geddes). It s? An intense series of some of the major B-pictures of the time, acted by two of the best actors of such period.

Jazz and its development as an outsider art? alongside the film, is the subject of film Jazz? series. The series features films not only jazz (Let’s Get Lost S Bruce Weber ™ s amazing doc about tragic singer and trumpeter Chet Baker), but also of great jazz soundtracks (Miles Davis Lift? For S scaffold). Favorites such as Bertrand Travernier? S? Round midnight rare gems overlap, as Minnie The Moocher (with Cab Calloway and his orchestra) and Dudley Murphy? S St. Louis Blues, featuring the inimitable Bessie Smith .????

offers weekend are just as interesting. Richard Linklater? S experimental animated film (adapted from a novel by Phillip K. Dick) A Scanner Darkly and Al Gore? S awareness agitprop An Inconvenient Truth are just two of the twenty films weekend. Others include the already cult-classic Snakes on a Plane, Robert Altman? S elegiac A Prairie Home Companion and the last of the brothers Dardenne, L? Child. Favorite People, Little Miss Sunshine, Nacho Libre, Superman Returns Cars, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man s Chest and Thank You For Smoking, please fill out the weekend schedule various .????
