Wed 10/30

5:30 pm 10/30 – 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
(2019 – 85 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

8pm 10/30 – Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice

– Marjorie Baumgarten,  Austin Chronicle

Sunday 11/03

1pm 11/03 – Tel Aviv on Fire

(2018 – 100 minutes – Not Rated)

“The setting is a nostalgic spy story in the lead-up to the Six-Day War…(the) imagining of the soap, itself titled ‘Tel Aviv on Fire,’ is the film’s masterstroke, reproducing all the outrageous plot twists and visual excesses of the genre.”

– Jay Weissberg, Variety

Official Submission: Colombia Best International Film – 2020
