Friday January 31 – Thursday February 6

Featured Film:

Atlantics at the Beacon Cinema

Mati Diop’s debut feature is something that really should be seen on the big screen (its cinematographer, Claire Mathon, also shot Portrait of a Lady on Fire, but her work here is better), and fortunately the Beacon has got it all this week. A little bit Claire Denis (who directed Diop in 35 Shots of Rum) and a little bit Pedro Costa circa Casa de lava, Atlantics is the kind of atmospheric anti-capitalist ghost romance we all need every once in awhile. This week the Beacon’s also got an acclaimed Jean Epstein silent which I haven’t seen but probably should (Coeur fidèle) a crazy fantasy wuxia (Holy Flame of the Martial World) and one of Martin Scorsese’s finest films (After Hours).
