NEW THIS WEEK
Reset                                                                                                Starts January 27
“Electrifying viewing … will fascinate an audience attuned to the world of dance, both in a festival and theatrical setting.” –Screen Daily
On the eve of his premiere as director of the Paris Opera Ballet choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied—who choreographed BLACK SWAN (and then married star Natalie Portman)—we get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the design and planning, including the gorgeous choreography. A portrait both of a performance, and of one of the performance world’s most beloved institutions, RESET explores creative and institutional change. (France, 2016, 110m, FilmRise)
They Call Us Monsters                                                                            January 27-29
“Haunting and provocative … powerful and eye-opening … should contribute powerfully to a badly overdue debate about some of the deepest wounds in American society.” –Hollywood Reporter
Ben Lear’s moving and troubling documentary takes viewers behind the walls of the Compound, the facility where Los Angeles houses its most violent juvenile criminals. To their advocates, they’re kids. To the system, they’re adults. To their victims, they’re monsters. (U.S., 2016, 80m)
National Organization for Women present
Abortion: Stories Women Tell
7p February 2,  followed by panel discussion
“Even-handed, insightful and deeply moving.” –The Wrap
Since 1973, when the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade recognized the right of every woman in the United States to have an abortion, many states have significantly restricted access to abortions. Filmmaker Tracy Droz Tragos focuses on the women most impacted by these restrictive policies: those struggling with unplanned pregnancies, the providers who show up at clinics to give medical care, and activists on both sides of the issue hoping to sway decisions and lives. Their personal stories are heartbreaking, tender, bleak and frightening, inspiring and complex.
Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival presents
Sabina Hijacking     
11a January 29        
On May 8, 1972, four hijackers from the Palestinian organization “Black September” took control of Sabena Flight 571. Masterfully blending cinematic reenactment and archival footage, Rani Sa’ar tracks the 30 nerve-wracking hours that followed, with fascinating human, military and political drama unfolding inside and outside of the plane. With Benjamin Netanyahu, Ehud Barak and Shimon Peres (who were in charge of the rescue effort) and the only surviving hijacker. (Israel, 2014, 100m)
NOW SHOWING & HELD-OVER FILMS
20th Century Women                                                            
“3.5 stars … Annette Bening is simply glorious … a magnificent performance without a false note or an actress-y bid for sympathy.” –Rolling Stone
During the summer of 1979, a Santa Barbara single mom and boardinghouse landlord (Annette Bening, in a career-best performance) decides the best way she can parent her teenage son (Lucas Jade Zumann) is to enlist her young tenants - a quirky punk photographer (Greta Gerwig), a mellow handyman (Billy Crudup) and her son's shrewd best friend (Elle Fanning)—to serve as role models in a changing world. (US, 2017, A24, Digital)
Elle          
Golden Globe nominee: Best Actress, Best Foreign Film
France’s submission: Best Foreign Language Oscar
“Breathtakingly elegant and continually surprising … a gripping whodunit, a tour de force of psychological suspense and a wickedly droll comedy of manners … makes “Fifty Shades of Grey” look like a vanilla sundae.” –LA Times
Michèle (the unmatchable Isabelle Huppert) seems indestructible. Head of a leading video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle's life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game—a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control. Paul Verhoven (TOTAL INSTINCT, BLACK BOOK) award-winning film is disturbing, provocative and startlingly funny: a sure conversation starter. (France, 2016, 210m, Sony Pictures Classics, digital)
Moonlight                                                                                       
“**** … A gamechanger … a flat-out masterpiece … its hard shell never conceals its shimmering delicacy and feeling.” –Rolling Stone
Barry Jenkins’ timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast (Naomie Harris,  Mahershala Ali. André Holland, Janelle Monáe), Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are (U.S., 2016, 110m, A24, digital).
UPCOMING FILMS (beyond next 10 days) 
The Salesman                                                                                        Starts February 3
“A finely cut gem of neorealist suspense … We’re caught up in something that can only be called suspense, and it’s galvanizing, but the suspense hinges purely on what’s going on in the characters’ hearts and minds.” –Variety
After their old flat becomes damaged, a young couple living in Tehran, are forced to move into a new apartment. Eventually, an incident linked to the previous tenant of their new home dramatically changes the couple’s life. The latest Chekhovian masterpiece from the Oscar-winning writer-director Asghar Farhadi (A SEPARATION) has the slow burn of film noir and the social  won two awards at Cannes, and the Best Foreign Film award from the National Board of Review., and is shortlisted for the Oscar. (Iran-France, 2016, 125m, Cohen Media, digital)
Neruda                                                                                                   Starts February 10
“A near-perfect homage to a literary giant” –Globe and Mail
When Chile’s acclaimed poet and leftist Senator Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) is charged with treason, he goes into hiding, with an obsessive, would-be literary critic and somewhat inept detective (Gael Garcia Bernal) on his tail. Director Pablo Larraín (TONY MANERO, NO) turns history into a funhouse, with echoes of Brecht, Bolaño and Borges, celebrating the unreality of fiction while critiquing the stark reality of political oppression. (Chile/Argentina/France/Spain, 2016, 107m, The Orchard, digital)
