dir. Sang-soo Hong,  Drama, Not Rated, S. Korea, English / German / Korean, 2017. 101 min.

Art imitates life in this quietly devastating masterpiece from Hong Sangsoo. Kim Minhee (The Handmaiden, Right Now, Wrong Then)—in the role that won her the Silver Bear for best actress in Berlin—plays Younghee, an actress reeling in the aftermath of an affair with a married film director. Younghee visits Hamburg then returns to Korea, but as she meets with friends and has her fair share to drink, increasingly startling confessions emerge. No stranger to mining his own experience for his films, Hong, whose real-life affair with Kim stirred up a media frenzy in Korea, here confronts his personal life with a newfound emotional directness.

THE DISASTER ARTIST

JANUARY 26 - FEBRUARY 1

 

 

 

dir. James Franco, Biography /Drama / History / Comedy, Rated “R”, USA, English, 2017, 104 min.

 

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau – an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable – into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy's cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend— and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you're doing.

SO MANY OF YOU WISHED TO SEE IT AGAIN OR TO BRING FRIENDS

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

         dir. Corata Kibiela and Hugh Welchman, Biography / Drama / Crime / Animation , Rated “PG-13”,  Poland, English, 2017, 94 min.

 

On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. Loving Vincent tells that story.
