Now Showing at the Little Art Cinema: HOLD ME TIGHT

Oct 7th, 8th & 9th @ 6:00
Oct 12th @ 7:00

In Hold Me Tight, Vicky Krieps (Phantom ThreadBergman Island) gives another riveting performance as Clarisse, a woman on the run from her family for reasons that aren’t immediately clear. Widely renowned as one of France’s great contemporary actors but less well-known in North America for his equally impressive work behind the camera, Mathieu Amalric’s sixth feature as director is his most ambitious to date. This virtuosic, daringly fluid portrait of a woman in crisis alternates between Clarisse’s adventures on the road and scenes of her abandoned husband Marc (Arieh Worthalter) as he struggles to take care of their children at home. Amalric’s film keeps viewers uncertain as to the reality of what they’re seeing until the final moments of this moving, unpredictable, and richly rewarding family drama. – 19 School Street, Rockport, MA

Now Showing at the Little Art Cinema! (7/1)

This week we have Vincente Minnelli’s Some Came Running July 1st, 3rd & 6th!

Frank Sinatra stars in this chronicle of postwar disillusionment and small-town hypocrisy, shrewdly directed by Vincente Minnelli. In one of his most textured portrayals, Sinatra is Dave Hirsh, an embittered ex-GI who returns to his Midwestern hometown to write the next chapter of his life. He’s torn between the “respectable” influences of his social-climbing brother and schoolteacher love interest, and the decadence embodied by gambler Dean Martin (brilliant in his first pairing with Sinatra) and floozy Shirley MacLaine (in her breakout role). A widescreen classic that can’t be missed on the big screen!

We also have the recent Iranian film Hit the Road July 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th & 13th! Watch the Trailer here!

In the first film from Panah Panahi (son and collaborator of embattled filmmaker Jafar Panahi and apprentice to Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami) a family takes a road trip across the rugged landscape of Iran to drop their eldest son off at the border. Over the course of the trip, they bond over memories of the past and grapple with fears of the unknown as they prepare to part with one of their own.

Coming up at the Little Art! 7/24 – 7/28

July 24th & 25th at 7:00 we have Jean-Luc Godard’s Hélas Pour Moi (Oh, Woe is Me), which is the story of journalist Abraham Klimt (Bernard Verley)’s investigation of a case of divine possession. In 1989 God enters the body of filmmaker Simon Donnadieu (Gérard Depardieu) and wishes to experience human desire, pleasure and pain. You can read a nice write-up of that here.

July 26th – 27th at 7:00 then July 28th at 2:00 we have Dario Argento’s debut giallo, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, where Sam Dalmas (Tony Musante), an American writer living in Rome, inadvertently witnesses a brutal attack on a woman (Eva Renzi, Funeral in Berlin) in a modern art gallery. Powerless to help, he grows increasingly obsessed with the incident. Convinced that something he saw that night holds the key to identifying the maniac terrorising Rome, he launches his own investigation parallel to that of the police, heedless of the danger to both himself and his girlfriend Giulia (Suzy Kendall). It features what would become his trademark visual flare and violence and is photographed by the legendary Vittorio Storaro (The Conformist, and Apocalypse Now) and scored by Ennio Morricone (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly).

Little Art Cinema Schedule – 6/17 – 6/23

The Little Art has showings every night at 7PM!

This week, Monday and Tuesday, we have Ace in the Hole screening.

“Billy Wilder’s Ace in the Hole is one of the most scathing indictments of American culture ever produced by a Hollywood filmmaker. Kirk Douglas gives the fiercest performance of his career as Chuck Tatum, an amoral newspaper reporter who washes up in dead-end Albuquerque, happens upon the scoop of a lifetime, and will do anything to keep getting the lurid headlines. Wilder’s follow-up to Sunset Boulevard is an even darker vision, a no-holds-barred exposé of the American media’s appetite for sensation that has gotten only more relevant with time.”

Then from Wednesday to Sunday we have Ida Lupino’s The Bigamist.

“Ida Lupino, a star of the nineteen-forties, became a director in 1949—a great one, as seen in Film Forum’s retrospective (through Nov. 22) of her work on both sides of the camera. Her movies probe women’s lives and troubles—unwanted pregnancy, mother-daughter rivalry, rape and its psychological aftermath—with a harrowing subjectivity that makes her one of the most original directors of the time. Lupino was also an independent producer, in partnership with her then husband, Collier Young, and her 1953 melodrama “The Bigamist” (which he wrote) confronts the emotional dangers of a working marriage. The title character (Edmond O’Brien) is a travelling appliance wholesaler in business with his wife (Joan Fontaine), who runs their office but neglects their romance. Lupino herself plays the other woman. Though centered on the philanderer’s double life, the movie’s most passionate moments are reserved for the anguish of the women facing his secrets and lies.”
