One Night Only: DON’T BLINK

dontblinkTen people arrive at a secluded mountain resort to find it completely deserted. With no gas for the return trip, the visitors are forced to stay and investigate the mystery surrounding the abandoned lodge. This sci-fi horror flick has an ensemble cast headed up by Mena Suvari (American Beauty, American Pie, American Horror Story), Brian Austin Green (“90210,” Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2), Joanne Kelly (Warehouse 13), Zack Ward (A Christmas Story, Transformers), and Robert Picardo (“Star Trek: Voyager”). Don’t Blink may be destined to be a cult classic.

Terry Gilliam’s ZERO THEOREM starts Friday, Sept. 19

Terry Gilliam, genius visionary director of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Time Bandits, The Meaning of Life, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Fisher King, Twelve Monkeys, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas among others is back with an extraordinary new film. In his words, The Zero Theorem “is a glimpse of the world I think we are living in now….What gives meaning to our lives, what brings us happiness? Can we ever find solitude in an increasingly connected, constricted world? Is that world under control or simply chaotic?”

Set in a future London, The Zero Theorem stars Academy Award® winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. He lives in isolation in a burnt-out chapel, waiting for a phone call which he is convinced will provide him with answers he has long sought.
Qohen works on a mysterious project, delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon), aimed at discovering the purpose of existence – or the lack thereof – once and for all. But his solitary existence is disturbed by visits from the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), and Bob (Lucas Hedges), Management’s wunderkind son.
Yet it is only once he experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to understand his very reason for being.

THE PAST IS A GROTESQUE ANIMAL starts Friday, September 19

The Past is a Grotesque Animal is a personal, accessible look at an artist — Kevin Barnes, frontman of the endlessly versatile indie pop band of Montreal — whose pursuit to make transcendent music at all costs drives him to value art over human relationships. As he struggles with all of those around him, family and bandmates alike, he’s forced to reconsider the future of the band, begging the question – is this really worth it?

“Laced with plenty of performance footage, “The Past” peels back the curtain on one of the strangest–or some might say most pretentious–music collectives currently going.” — The Oregonian

THE TRIP TO ITALY starts Friday, September 19

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back in the hilarious sequel to The TripThe Trip to Italy is more restaurants, more reviews, and more excuses to eat (see below!)

Michael Winterbottom’s largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon—or semi-fictionalized versions thereof—on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets’ grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads.

And what is a movie about dining in Italy without Italian food? A missed opportunity, we’d say! So on Friday, Sept. 19 and Saturday, Sept. 20, we’ll have Tomato, Olive and Mozzarella pie, from Detroit’s own Sister Pie, available for $5 per good-sized slice. Layers of tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, olives, oregano, and green peppers in an all-butter crust, served with a complimentary glass of red or white wine. Mangia!

GOD HELP THE GIRL starts Friday, September 12

This musical is completely charming in an ’80s way. It’s got good DNA…written and directed by Stuart Murdoch of Belle & Sebastian and produced by Barry Mendel of RushmoreThe Royal Tenenbaums, and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, among many others…and some of that whimsical style comes through. But this is no homage…it’s its own thing, and it was an official selection at the 2014 Sundance, Berlin and SXSW Film Festivals. Fun fact: The actors — Emily Browning (Sleeping Beauty, Sucker Punch), Olly Alexander (Le Week-End, Bright Star) and Hannah Murray (“Game of Thrones,” “Skins”) — did their own singing and dancing, giving the musical scenes a compelling authenticity…just part of what makes this a must-see.

CALVARY starts Friday, August 29

Back in March, many of you enjoyed John Michael McDonagh’s The Guard. Now the writer/director has reunited with one of his leads in that film, Brendan Gleeson, for a new, rather different, film, Calvary. Gleeson plays Father James Lavelle, a good priest who is faced with troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. This unseen person threatens to kill Father James in a week’s time. Although the priest continues to comfort his own fragile daughter (played by Kelly Reilly…Gleeson’s character became a priest after his wife died) and to help members of his church with their various problems, he feels a foreboding sinister force closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary.

Also starring Chris O’Dowd, M. Emmet Walsh, and Marie-Josée Croze, Calvary is “an inventive whodunit with a pitch-black heart” (Indiewire).
