Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter's No Man's Land. One summer's evening, two aging writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men. Also starring Owen Teale and Damien Molony, don't miss this glorious revival of Pinter's comic classic. The broadcast will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast and director Sean Mathias. item36

Paterson
Opens Friday, January 27

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

In his latest minimalist masterpiece, writer/director Jim Jarmusch (ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE) adds another refreshingly unvarnished entry to his filmography -- and another outstanding performance to Adam Driver's career credits. Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey-- they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura's world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.item6

A funny, emotionally piercing story about a teenager and the women who raise him offers Annette Bening a too-rare opportunity to shine in a leading role -- and marks another assured step forward for writer-director Mike Mills (BEGINNERS). During the summer of 1979, a Santa Barbara single mom and boardinghouse landlord (Bening) decides the best way she can parent her teenage son (Lucas Jade Zumann) is to enlist her young tenants - a quirky punk photographer (Greta Gerwig), a mellow handyman (Billy Crudup) and her son's shrewd best friend (Elle Fanning) to serve as role models in his rapidly changing world. item18

I Am Not Your Negro
Opens Friday, February 3

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.  At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.  Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

Vittorio Grigolo leads an excellent cast including Thomas Hampson, Sonya Yoncheva, Christine Rice and Sofia Fomina in Offenbach's fantastical operatic drama. Les Contes d'Hoffmann is the most enduring "serious" opera from a composer otherwise better known for his sparkling operettas. It's not hard to see why: Offenbach's witty and highly melodious music finds the perfect vehicle in the Romantic, richly imaginative world of the storyteller E.T.A. Hoffmann. This production directed by John Schlesinger's sets Hoffman's tale in the 19th century, drawing on styles from both Hoffmann and Offenbach's times. Magnificent set designs and sumptuous costumes realize to brilliant effect the extravagant flourishes of Hoffmann's imaginative world.item14

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Margy Kinmonth, this feature documentary is a bold and exciting cinema presentation that encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian Avant-Garde. Drawing on the collections of major Russian institutions, contributions from contemporary artists, curators and performers and personal testimony from the descendants of those involved, the film brings the artists of the Russian Avant-Garde to life. It tells the stories of artists like Chagall, Kandinsky and Malevich - pioneers who flourished in response to the challenge of building a new art for a new world, only to be broken by implacable authority after 15 short years and silenced by StalinÕs Socialist Realism. Yet these remarkable artworks survived and the Russian Avant-Garde continues to exert an influence over contemporary art movements. Revolution: New Art for a New World confirms this: exploring the fascination that these colorful paintings, inventive sculptures and propaganda posters retain over the modern consciousness 100 years on. item22

Julieta

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

This warm, tender, mysterious and beautifully shot film finds writer-director Pedro Almodóvar revisiting familiar themes -- and doing so with his signature skill. Julieta lives in Madrid with her daughter Antía. They both suffer in silence over the loss of Xoan, Antía’s father and Julieta’s husband. But at times grief doesn’t bring people closer, it drives them apart. When Antía turns eighteen she abandons her mother, without a word of explanation. Julieta looks for her in every possible way, but all she discovers is how little she knows of her daughter. JULIETA is about the mother’s struggle to survive uncertainty. It also about fate, about guilt complexes and about that unfathomable mystery that leads us to abandon the people we love, erasing them from our lives as if they had never meant anything, as if they had never existed.item32

Germany’s Official Entry for the 2017 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar® pairs carefully constructed, three-dimensional characters in a tenderly funny character study that’s both genuinely moving and impressively ambitious. Winfried doesn’t see much of his working daughter Ines. Then suddenly the student-less music teacher decides to surprise her with a visit after the death of his old dog. It’s an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project as a corporate strategist in Bucharest. The geographical change doesn’t help the two to see more eye to eye. Practical joker Winfried loves to annoy his daughter with corny pranks. What’s worse are his little jabs at her routine lifestyle of long meetings, hotel bars and performance reports. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and Winfried agrees to return home to Germany. Enter flashy Toni Erdmann: Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. item10


Neruda
Neruda

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

When Chilean poet Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) is named an enemy of the state in 1948 for his communist leanings, a determined investigator, Oscar Peluchonneau, (Gael Garcia Bernal) launches a search to apprehend him. Neruda seizes on the opportunity to make a larger political and literary statement, and engages the investigator in a game of cat and mouse in this historical biopic directed by Pablo Larrain (JACKIE). Neruda and his wife, painter Delia del Carril, try to leave the country, but they fail to do so. Peluchonneau follows their steps closely. Their only solution is to go underground. The legend of the poet chased by Peluchonneau spreads and in Europe the artists, led by Pablo Picasso, clammor for his freedom. Peluchonneau is on his heels. Hunter and prey fuse together. Neruda uses this to reinvent himself. The persecution will turn him into a symbol of freedom and an international literary legend. Inventive, intelligent, and beautifully filmed, Neruda transcends the traditional biopic structure to look at the meaning beyond the details of its subject's life.

A boxing match in Brooklyn; life in postwar Bosnia and Herzegovina; the daily routine of a Nigerian midwife; an intimate family moment at home: these scenes and others are woven into Cameraperson, a tapestry of footage captured over the twenty-five-year career of documentary cinematographer Kirsten Johnson. Through a series of episodic juxtapositions, Johnson explores the relationships between image makers and their subjects, the tension between the objectivity and intervention of the camera, and the complex interaction of unfiltered reality and crafted narrative. A work that combines documentary, autobiography, and ethical inquiry, Cameraperson is both a moving glimpse into one filmmaker's personal journey and a thoughtful examination of what it means to train a camera on the world.item7
