(Il mercenario)
Directed By: Sergio Corbucci
(Italy, 1968, 110 mins, Blu-ray Disc)

A well-groomed, greedy Polish mercenary aids a Mexican Revolutionary against the repressive government, while butting heads with a young female radical and an American rival. Quentin Tarantino rates this little-seen spaghetti western higher even than Once Upon a Time in the West. Sergio Corbucci (Django) directs, from a story by Franco Solinas (Battle of Algiers), and the glorious score is by the great Ennio Morricone. With Franco Nero and Jack Palance as “Curly”.

Valorized with great skill and insight by John Vaillant in his Governor General’s Award–winning book The Golden Spruce, Grant Hadwin’s journey from logging scout to eco-terrorist now becomes a powerful non-fiction film. Artfully reconstructing a life in the wilderness, Sasha Snow reminds us how much is at stake here, in our own backyard, and give a fair-minded account of a highly contentious individual. This screening will be preceded by a peek at Zack Embree’s film about the Kinder Morgan pipeline, Directly Affected (17 min), showing as a work in progress.

Directed By: Federico Fellini
(Italy, 1953, 104 mins, 35mm)

"One of the screen’s great portrayals of the hell-raising and malaise of young men in their 20s, hit Italy like a comic thunderbolt when it was released there in 1953 — and it struck the American art-house audience in much the same way when it premiered here in 1956. Now it returns, and unlike its five aging-boy protagonists, Fellini’s movie hasn’t lost its first youth." Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

(Tempo Instabile Con Probabili Schiartite)
Directed By: Luca Zingaretti
(Italy, 2015, 100 mins, DCP)

Satirizing small-town life and politics while telling the touchingly comic story of friends at an impasse, this film follows two founders of a manufacturing cooperative who discover oil on their factory’s property. Noted Italian actors Luca Zingaretti and Pasquale Petrolo shine as the two co-op leaders while John Turturro brings an effortless comedic polish to his role as a consulting mining engineer from the US who arrives with dollar signs in his eyes.

One evening in New York, two young homosexuals enact an amusing demonstration of their intellectual superiority: they strangle a college friend for kicks, then stash the body in a trunk that becomes a makeshift table for the cocktail party they are throwing for the dead man that very night. The unique conceit of Rope is that is filmed in one continuous, single, flowing camera move, apparently in "real time", without a cut.

It’s not called a murder of crows for nothing. Our little feathered friends decide they have had enough of smug, complacent humans and band together to do something about it. Bodega Bay, California bears the first wave of attack, and dilettante Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedron) seems to bring out the worst in them.

Truffaut: “Birds attack people! I am convinced that cinema was invented so that such a film could be made. This is an artist’s dream…"

James Stewart is the man who sees too much. “Jeff” Jeffries is a sports photographer waylaid by a broken leg, doomed to spend the summer in a wheelchair in his New York apartment. That’s how he comes to witness a murder in the dead of night in an apartment across the way… (or does he?). Certainly one of Hitchcock’s supreme masterpieces.
