It Might Get Loud
"A marvelous rock doc that manages to be wistful, tasty, and jam-kicking at the same time." (Entertainment Weekly)
Director David Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) penetrates the glamorous surface of three rock legends: The Edge (U2), Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), and Jack White (The White Stripes). Audiences get up close and personal, discovering how a furniture upholsterer from Detroit (White), a studio musician and painter from London (Page) and a seventeen-year-old Dublin schoolboy (Edge), each used the electric guitar to develop their unique sound and rise to the pantheon of superstar. A mix of expert storytelling and live performances, It Might Get Loud promises not only "an incredibly rich mix of their music, groundbreaking, defining," applauds the LA Times, but "that it comes with a righteous story too" makes this doc personal and wistful, accessible to rock enthusiasts and newcomers alike.
Davis Guggenheim. 2008. 97 m. PG. US. Sony Pictures Classics.5:00 PM
"A mind-twisting, eye-tickling wonder." (New York Times)
When a powerful device able to annihilate a dreamer’s personality goes missing, a genius research scientist steps in to save the world—with the help of her stunning and fearless alter ego, Paprika, who has the ability to enter people’s unconscious minds. This wonder of an anime is crammed with hallucinogenic visual effects that delight and baffle, but are not for the faint of heart.
Satoshi Kon. 2006. 90 m. R. Japan, Japanese with subtitles. Sony Pictures Classics.5:15 PM 7:15 PM
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 .5:30 PM 7:30 PM
The Baader Meinhof Complex
“A taut, unnerving, forcefully unromantic fictional film.” (New York Times)
A sweeping, fast paced epic that traces the rise and fall of the notorious West German terrorist group Red Army Faction (RAF), The Baader Meinhof Complex was selected as the official German submission for last year’s Academy Awards and was nominated for a Best Foreign Film Golden Globe. Beginning with the RAF’s formation in the late 1960s during the German Student Movement and charting their growth over the next decade, the film is a no-holds-barred examination of this extreme leftist organization that, despite their violent tactics, is not always easy to pigeonhole.
Uli Edel. 2008. 150 m. R. France/Germany/Czech Republic, English/German with subtitles. Vitagraph Films.7:10 PM
