Featured Film:

Ugetsu at the Northwest Film Forum

There are some fine new movies this week, led by João Pedro Rodrigues’s The Ornithologist at the Film Forum and the new Imtiaz Ali film, Jab Harry Met Sejal, playing at a handful of area theatres, along with some excellent repertory films: They Live at the Ark Lodge, Do the Right Thing (what a great choice for the hottest week of the year) at the Central Cinemas, the late George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead at the Grand, and Howard Hawks’s Monkey Business, the penultimate film in SAM’s Cary Grant series. But it’s been awhile since Kenji Mizoguchi’s Ugetsu played here, and the NWFF has it this weekend in a new restoration. It’s a ghost story about two doomed men and the women who ultimately pay the price for their ambition. It’s the best movie by one of the greatest filmmakers ever.
