NEW THIS WEEK
Personal Shopper                                                                                    Starts March 31  
Winner, Best Director, Cannes Film Festival
“***** … captivating, bizarre, tense, fervently preposterous and almost unclassifiable … Kristen Stewart’s performance is tremendous.” –Guardian
 Maureen (Kristen Stewart) has a job she hates: seeing to the wardrobe of a media celebrity. She couldn’t find anything better to pay for her stay in Paris. And wait. Wait for a sign from the spirit of her twin brother, who died a few months earlier. Until then, her life will stay on hold. The latest adventure in story and form from the visionary Olivier Assayas (CARLOS, SUMMER HOURS) explores our moment of deep technological, spiritual and emotional unease. (France, 2016, digital)
Contemporary Color                                                                            Starts March 31
“A series of mesmerizing spectacles … visually astonishing … an entirely original blend of psychedelic experiences with a realistic window into American life.” –IndieWire
In the summer of 2015, legendary musician David Byrne staged an event at Brooklyn's Barclays Center to celebrate the art of Color Guard: synchronized dance routines involving flags, rifles, and sabers. Recruiting performers that include the likes of Saint Vincent, Nelly Furtado, Ad-Rock, and Ira Glass to collaborate on original pieces with 10 color guard teams from across the US and Canada, former Santa Feans Bill and Turner Ross have crafted a beautifully filmed snapshot of a one-of-a-kind live event. (U.S., 2016, 107m, Oscilloscope)
NOW SHOWING & HELD-OVER FILMS
My Life as a Zucchini                                                                            
Switzerland’s official entry: Best Foreign Language Oscar
“Nothing short of a miracle!” –Hollywood Reporter
After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is befriended by a police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this at times strange and hostile environment. But with Raymond’s help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust and love. An instant landmark of stop-motion animation, nominated for a Golden Globe and winner of numerous festival awards, Claude Barras’s film features voices by Will Forte, Nick Offerman, Ellen Page, and Amy Sedaris. (Switzerland, 2016, 68m, GKids, digital)
Land of Mine                                                                                           
Best Oscar nominee, Foreign Language Film
“****... harrowing, intelligent, compelling and intensely suspenseful …  a great film, ... a plea for humanity in all of us” –New York Observer
As World War Two comes to an end, a group of German POWs, boys rather than men, are captured by the Danish army and forced to engage in a deadly task: to defuse and clear land mines from the Danish coastline. With little or no training, the boys soon discover that the war is far from over. Inspired by real events, Martin Zandvliet’s award-winning exposes the untold story of one tragic moment in post-war history. (Denmark, 2016, 100m, Sony Pictures Classics)
KEDi                                                                                                    
The Wall Street Journal once suggested the capital of Turkey should be renamed Catstinopole. This sweet, insightful film follows some of the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people’s lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. Ceyda Turan’s first feature is a philosophical investigation, asking us to reconsider our relationship to cats, to nature, to each other. (Turkey, 2016, xxm)
I Am Not Your Negro                                                                             
“A thrilling documentary … One of the best movies you are likely to see this year ... moves across time and space, seamlessly – insistently – sliding from the historical civil rights movement to more recent events.” –The New York Times
In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X & Martin Luther King, Jr. But at the time of his death, Baldwin had finished only 30 pages. Raoul Peck helps Baldwin imagine a completed book in this radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter.  (U.S.-France, 2016, 95m, digital, Magnolia Pictures)
UPCOMING FILMS (beyond next 10 days)  
Happy Hour    
11a-5p, April 8-9
Four friends, who have long confided in one another, are taken aback when one confesses that she is seeking a divorce from her husband. To make up with each other and dispel any bitter feelings, the group then leaves on a trip to the Arima hot spring resort where the unhappy wife vanishes, starting a chain of unexpected events in the remaining women’s lives. Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s  intimate epic, a winner of major awards at Locarno, Singapore and multiple other film festivals, is an immerse, deeply moving and literary work of cinema art, joining long-form classics like YI YI, DEKALOG and BEST OF YOUTH. Shown in three parts. (Japan, 2016, 317m, KimStim, digital)
I Called Him Morgan                                                                           Starts April 7
“***** … the greatest jazz documentary since Let’s Get Lost, it’s a documentary-as-jazz. Spellbinding, mercurial, hallucinatory, exuberant, tragic.” –Guardian
 As a teenager, the prodigiously talented Lee Morgan playing with the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band and Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. He was a featured artist on John Coltrane’s legendary Blue Train, and he record 25 albums for Blue Note Records. But Morgan was haunted by addiction, and on a snowy night in February 1972 he was shot dead by his common-law wife Helen during a gig at a club in New York City. The memory of the event still haunts their friends and the entire jazz community. Kasper Collin’s remarkable expose-poem—a compassionate murder mystery—offers a love letter to two unforgettable personalities, the music that brought them together, and the shared pain that led to tragedy. (Sweden, 2016, 90m, FilmRise)
Donald Cried                                                                                      Starts April 14    
“Hilariously unsettling … a psychological thriller stuffed into the mold of a boisterous R-rated comedy” –IndieWire
Kris Avedisian’s darkly funny story starts when former childhood best friends reconnect decades later. Peter (Jesse Wakeman) left his Rhode Island home to reinvent himself; Donald (Avedisian) hasn't grown up one bit. Together, they take an increasingly unhinged ride into their past, in one of the funniest, weirdest buddy movies in memory. (U.S., 2016, 85m)
