Saturday 12/14

12:30pm 12/14 – Where’s My Roy Cohn?

Roy Cohn personified the dark arts of American politics, turning empty vessels into dangerous demagogues – from Joseph McCarthy to his final project, Donald J. Trump. This thriller-like exposé connects the dots, revealing how a deeply troubled master manipulator shaped our current American nightmare.

Director: Matt Tyrnauer
(2019 – 97 minutes – Rated PG-13)

“The film’s answer to the question suggests that Cohn is among the threads that link the politics of the Red Scare with whatever it is we’re living through now. He’s still around.”

– A.O. Scott, NY Times

2:45pm 12/14 – Downton Abbey

Starring Maggie Smith, Elizabeth McGovern, Matthew Goode, Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Imelda Staunton et al. The saga continues to its conclusion — on the big screen — of the Crowley family, owners of a large country estate in post-World War I England….

Director: Michael Engler
(2019 – 122 minutes – Rated PG)

“…for the kinds of viewers…who might not feel obligated to leave their homes to watch blockbusters featuring dinosaurs, robots, superheroes or Jedi knights but will travel some distance to see a film in which well-dressed, reasonably thoughtful adults do and say grownup things.”

– Matt Zoller Seitz, rogerebert.com

5:30pm 12/14 – Monsieur Klein

In French with English subtitles.
Paris 1942.  Robert Klein (Alain Delon) has a well-furnished flat, a mistress and his art dealer business is booming.  His cosy life is suddenly disrupted when he discovers that there is another Robert Klein in the city – a Jew with some very mysterious behavior who soon attracts the close and menacing attention of the police…. This reissue of Losey’s 1976 classic, co-written by Franco Solinas (Battle of Algiers) is one of the highlights of the movie year.

Director: Joseph Losey
(1976 – 123 minutes – Rated R)

“For hunters of rarities and students of wartime oppression…All good films come to those who wait.”

– Anthony Lane, The New Yorker

“Suffused not only with history, but also with echoes of Kafka, Dostoyevsky and the clipped paranoia of Losey’s collaborations with Harold Pinter.”

– Ben Kenigsberg, NY Times

Two lighthouse keepers (Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) try to maintain their sanity while living on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890’s.

(2019 – 87 minutes – Not Rated )

“Can one become a historian merely by pressing a button? The documentary ‘Recorder- The Marion Stokes Project’ says yes. It also demonstrates that pressing a button is not such a mere thing.”
