North By Northwest
"One of the few films in the [comic thriller] genre worthy of multiple viewings…Its prophetically cool stance towards politics…calmly locates treachery equally on 'our side' as on 'theirs' -- and this during the Eisenhower years, when American chauvinism galloped at full pace... Never has the entire hierarchy of unprincipled political expediency been so ruthlessly dissected…in a comedy." -- Donald Spoto, The Art of Alfred Hitchcock: Fifty Years of His Motion Pictures (1976)
Alfred Hitchcock. 1959. 136 m. NR. USA. Warner Bros.2:15 PM 5:00 PM 8:00 PM
"Movies about belief and believers frequently succumb to woozy piety or brittle contempt, but Higher Ground belongs...among the elect. Focused with sympathetic intensity on the ordeal of a single soul, it illuminates, as though from within, a complex spiritual struggle." (AO Scott, NY Times)
In Higher Ground, Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, Down to the Bone) portrays a woman whose personal struggles with love, faith, and trust in humans and God begins to affect the tight-knit spiritual community to which she belongs. Based on the memoir of Carolyn S. Brigg's, The Dark World, the film is Farmiga's directorial debut.
Vera Farmiga. 2011. 109 m. R. USA. Sony Pictures Classics.2:30 PM 5:10 PM 7:30 PM 9:50 PM
