MONDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2013 *** THE CONFORMIST *** directed by BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI with JEAN-LOUIS TRINTIGNANT, DOMINIQUE SANDA

While presenting this story, Bertolucci undertakes nothing less than a visual history of the cinema, employing every style from the earliest days of silent film onward. As the plot advances, the cinematic style grows increasingly modern. Alienation, sexual confusion, Oedipal rage, incredible risks taken to slake momentary lust, betrayal, nice clothes, and lovely interiors:  classic Bertolucci themes, fully explored here for the first time.  Il Conformista remains one of the most beautiful films and certainly Bertolucci’s most coherent work, an accomplishment of genius. It’s never tedious, pretentious, or overly arty. It can be disturbing as hell.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 2nd.2013 *** ” RED ” *** directed by KRYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI***with JEAN-LOUIS TRINTIGNANT and IRENE JACOB***

Three Colors-Red.jpg      Three Colors: Red (French: Trois couleurs: Rouge, Polish: Trzy kolory. Czerwony) is a 1994 film co-written, produced, and directed by Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieślowski. It is the final film of The Three Colors Trilogy, which examines the French Revolutionary ideals; it is preceded by Blue and White. Kieślowski had announced that this would be his final film,[1] which proved true with the director’s sudden death in 1996. Red is about fraternity, which it examines by showing characters whose lives gradually become closely interconnected, with bonds forming between two characters who appear to have little in common.
