|Mon Oncle (France, 1958)|
Nov 4, 2016 at 7:00 PM
If you attended our screening of the comedy “Playtime” during French Week last year, you know you’re in for a treat that must be enjoyed on a big screen with an enthusiastic audience. Once again, actor-writer-director and physical comic extraordinaire Jacques Tati brushes away story and character for a purity of staging and elegant sight gags with “Mon Oncle.” This smash hit – winner of the foreign language Oscar® and a prize-winner at Cannes – presents the ever-befuddled Monsieur Hulot navigating a wealthy cousin’s ultra-modern home, with little success.
“Variety” adored the film’s “inventiveness, gags, warmth and ‘poetic’ approach to satire."
|Office (Hong Kong/China, 2015)|
Dec 2, 2016 at 7:00 PM
A boardroom satire, set during 2008’s economic collapse, that is also a 3D musical, directed by a Hong Kong auteur often compared to Scorsese, starring local legend Chow Yun-Fat -- what else do you need to know? As a company prepares to go public, the line between personal affairs and personnel affairs becomes unstable – as do the lines of a living, fluctuating set design that conveys a giant machine, timepiece and dollhouse all at once!
“The AV Club” calls Office “one of the most original and imaginative musicals of the last decade … puts Hollywood’s recent attempts at reviving the genre to shame.”
