"A masterpiece about life, death and everything in between, Michael Haneke’s Amour takes a long, hard, tender look at an elderly French couple, Georges and Anne — played by two titans of French cinema, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva — in their final days." ( Manohla Dargis, NY Times)

Oscar Winner–– Best Foriegn Film! The latest from modern master Michael Haneke (The White Ribbon), Amour is a deeply moving but deceptively simple film about love in the face of mortality. Starring screen legends Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva as an elderly couple dealing with life after a stroke, this Palme d'Or and Oscar winner is easily an instant classic.

The Gatekeepers

"It is guaranteed to trouble any one, left, right, center or head in the sand, with confidence or certainly in his or her own opinions. If you need reassurance or grounds for optimism about the Middle East, you will not find it here. What you will find is rare, welcome and almost unbearable clarity." (A.O. Scott, NY Times)

The Friends of Eddie Coyle

Pulp Fictions: The Best Crime Novels on Film

Based on George V. Higgins' The Friends of Eddie Coyle

Gunrunners, mob hitmen, bank robbers, ATF agents- with friends like these, a Boston-based hijacker (Robert Mitchum) doesn't need enemies. Staring down a five-year stretch in the slammer, he turns informer, and whether he ends up going to jail or getting caught by his criminal pals, time is most definitely running out. A brutal and underrated portrait of blue-collar crooks

Nothing But a Man

Jonathan Demme's Rarely Seen Cinema

"...this beautiful film opened my head up, introduced me in a shattering way to the notion of race, drove me to James Baldwin, Soul on Ice, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, — thus birthing a whole new world-view for me, where previously there had been a basically blissful haze of movies, movies, movies." (Jonathan Demme)

Focusing on the struggles of a young black couple for respect and justice in early-60s Alabama, this important film is a reemerging landmark in American cinema. Hailed for its handling of sensitive subject matter and its groundbreaking visual style, Nothing But a Man is a fiction film that looks like a documentary.

Read a personal note from Jonathan Demme about Nothing But A Man.

Coup de Torchon

Pulp Fictions: The Best Crime Novels on Film

Based on Jim Thompson's Pop. 1280

Surrounded by corruption and open apartheid in French West Africa, an ineffectual police chief embraces the immoral climate by becoming a casual murderer. Although he first dishes it out to those who have it coming, he soon finds he must kill indiscriminately to cover his tracks. Savagely violent, yet oddly quiet and profound.
