Friday November 10 – Thursday November 16

Featured Film:

120 Beats per Minute at the AMC Seattle and Faces Places at the SIFF Film Center

Two of the very best movies of 2017 open this week on single screens in Seattle. Robin Campillo’s 120 Beats per Minute (BPM) is the story of the Paris branch of ACT UP during the early 90s, an expert melding of suspenseful political filmmaking with personal romance and tragedy. Faces Places, by venerable New Wave icon Agnès Varda and ambiguous photographer JR is the year’s best best buddy comedy and probably the nicest movie of the year too, as the two travel around France making large pictures of the people they meet. It’s also the 2017 movie most likely to make you want to punch Jean-Luc Godard in the nose. Taken together, these two French films make a compelling argument that European Cinema is not, in fact, dead. On the other hand, Palme d’Or winner The Square opens too this week at the Uptown and the Lincoln Square.
