The Bad and the Beautiful
AW: “A perfect movie. The setup is worlds away from a developing country, where I am from. But anyone in the movie industry can easily identify with this film. We share the same urges and dilemmas as we work to create illusions. I wish Hollywood were still producing fine black-and-white dramas like this one.”
Kirk Douglas, Gloria Grahame, Lana Turner, and Dick Powell star in this slyly funny multiple-Oscar winner about the rise and fall of a tyrannical Hollywood producer, as seen through the eyes of various people he’s betrayed.
Vincente Minnelli. 1952. 118 m. NR. USA. Warner Bros.2:25 PM 5:00 PM 7:25 PM 9:55 PM
Jiro Dreams of Sushi
"A bite-sized view of Japanese culture, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, is nearly as meticulous as its subjects, Jiro Ono and his Tokyo restaurant. The movie's first word is oishi, Japanese for "delicious," and what follows is a treat for sushi veterans." (Mark Jenkins, NPR)
Jiro Ono is an 85-year-old sushi master, owner of “Sukiyabashi Jiro,” a small sushi restaurant in a Tokyo subway station. Regarded by many as the greatest living sushi chef, Jiro has been honored by the Japanese government as a national treasure. Jiro Dreams of Sushi is a straightforward and elegant portrait of the man, his family, and his world-famous sushi.
David Gelb. 2012. 81 m. PG. USA, Japanese with subtitles. Magnolia Pictures.2:30 PM 4:30 PM
"The film is crisp, evenly paced, its colors bright, as sharp as the winter cold." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)
After the shocking and abrupt death of an elementary school teacher, Bachir Lazhar is quickly hired as a replacement. Bachir, an Algerian immigrant living in Montreal after his own personal tragedy, finds himself at the center of a shaken and dysfunctional education system. An understated, poignant drama, Monsieur Lazhar was one of the most talked about films at Sundance and Toronto, and recently received an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.
Philippe Falardeau. 2011. 94 m. PG-13. Canada, French. Music Box Films.2:40 PM 5:05 PM 7:10 PM 9:15 PM
