“We gotta mix it up. We leaned heavily on the classics last year, and I think next year we probably will return to a little bit more of that. If we get a lot of people for Top Gun or Wonder Woman and ten of them come back to see Cleopatra then my job is done. I’ve continued to keep these important movies in the consciousness.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 09/20/2017

TILDA SWINTON: WORLD’S GREATEST ACTRESS

IMG_3450

“‘Tilda Swinton is simply one of the most mercurial and indelible screen performers of our age,’ says the Brattle’s creative director Ned Hinkle, via email from the Toronto Film Festival. ‘She fits neither the definition of movie star nor the definition of character actor. I think she’s a very unique performer and also, in a real way, a cinema artist.'” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 09/14/2017

COLUMBUS

IMG_3431

“Few films are as attentive to the spaces inhabited by their characters as Columbus. The screen is almost always broken up into frames inside of frames, favoring deep-focus shots in which foreground obstacles either wall these characters off from one another or isolate them together in a little box of their own, positioned against the rest of the world.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 09/07/2017

YOU CAN’T GO HOME AGAIN: THE END OF TWIN PEAKS

IMG_3424
“The past is gone, the show kept reminding us. The Return was ultimately an anti-nostalgic nostalgia revival about how you can’t go home again. Lynch and Frost repeatedly, adamantly denied the comforts of the familiar, sidelined old regulars in favor of new creations and kept their most beloved character comatose for the first sixteen hours. That’s nerve.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 09/04/2017
