The September Issue
“Lusciously revealing fly-on-the-wall portrait of Anna Wintour.” (Entertainment Weekly)
R.J. Cutler takes us behind the scenes of the making of Vogue’s 2007 September issue, the largest in the magazine’s history. While the film has its Devil Wears Prada moments—See Anna Wintour alienate her staff! Watch sycophants suck up to their queen! Behold as she shatters designers with a single stare!—it also delves deeper, revealing a skilled, complex woman who does not take her considerable power lightly. Cutler examines a Vogue office populated with a wide array of characters, including the fire-haired Creative Director Grace Coddington. It’s Anna’s world, but in many ways Grace is the real star here. She’s fascinating, larger-than-life, and downright cool; much like the magazine itself.
R.J. Cutler. 2009. 90 m. PG-13. US. Roadside Attractions .5:00 PM 7:00 PM 9:00 PM
“Riveting and frighteningly contemporary... cinematically dazzling. Lorre’s performance is unforgettable." —Leonard Maltin on M
Coming at the end of the German Expressionist movement and an important precursor to Hollywood noir, Fritz Lang’s tale of a child murderer (Peter Lorre) prowling the streets of Berlin is a study of the nature of good and evil. As the city’s police and criminal society close in on the killer, somehow everyone is both guilty party and victimized innocent. After seeing Lang’s first sound film, it’s impossible to hear “In the Hall of the Mountain King” without looking over your shoulder.
Fritz Lang. 1931. 99 m. NR. Germany, German with subtitles. Kino International.5:05 PM 9:45 PM
"Subtlety and nuance mark both the film's dialogue and performances. It's hard to see how Dancy and Byrne could be any better." (LA Times)
After moving into her new apartment, Beth, a broken-hearted teacher, finds herself drawn to Adam, her socially inept downstairs neighbor whose head seems lost in the stars. When he reveals that he has Asperger’s Syndrome, her parents (Peter Gallagher and Amy Irving) are understandably concerned, but she can’t deny their unique connection. Rose Byrne and Hugh Dancy deliver knockout performances, and Writer/Director Max Mayer examines the challenges of an exceptional modern relationship with a humorous and heartfelt touch.
Max Mayer. 2009. 99 m. PG-13. US. Fox Searchlight.5:10 PM 7:20 PM 9:30 PM
After making some of the best noir titles of the 1940s (The Naked City, Thieves’ Highway) and then being blacklisted by Hollywood, Jules Dassin relocated to Europe and struggled to make another film until Jean Pierre-Melville brought him on board to make this thriller, one of the greatest French crime films of all time. Dassin won Best Director at Cannes for this tale of a band of thieves coming together to execute a seemingly impossible jewelry shop break-in. The robbery itself—a spectacularly underplayed half-hour of tense silence—is a landmark of the genre.
Jules Dassin. 1955. 122 m. NR. France, French/Italian with subtitles. Rialto Pictures.7:15 PM
