Friday October 20 – Thursday October 26

Featured Film:

The Florida Project at the SIFF Egyptian and the Lincoln Square

Normally I’d use this space to highlight the Northwest Film Forums presentation of an unearthed, uncut 35mm print of Dario Argento’s classic horror film Suspiria, with star Jessica Harper in attendance. But they’re playing it one night only and both shows have been sold out for weeks. So if, like me, you’re shut out of the movie event of the fall, you should go see what is quite probably the best American film of 2017 so far, Sean Baker’s The Florida Project. We like it so much, we reviewed it twice in a single day. Here’s Ryan’s take on it and here’s mine.

The Princess Bride in Wide Release

Our VIFF coverage is on-going though the festival has come to an end, and there’s good stuff to be seen on the art house circuit (the TWIST film festival, Ex Libris at the Grand, Days of Heaven at SAM), and I wouldn’t normally feature one of these TCM/Fathom Events repertory showings, but it’s my wife’s birthday week and this is her favorite movie, an adaptation of the book by her favorite author. If you haven’t seen it, don’t miss it this Sunday and Wednesday at any of several multiplexes around the region. If you have seen it, you might as well watch it again. It never, ever gets old.

Ex Libris: New York Public Library at the Northwest Film Forum

We’re still covering the Vancouver Film Festival (in fact, I’m still in Canada), so far we have reviews of 24 Frames, Forest Movie and Prototype, Claire’s Camera, Maison du bonheur, Scaffold and Let Your Heart Be Lightand Western, with more to come over the next week or so. In the meantime, one of the best films of the year is opening this week at the NWFF, Frederick Wiseman’s look at the New York Public Library system. Prowling around various branches through the city, focusing on the people who organize and fund the library and the people who use it, and the implicit class and racial differences that separate them, Wiseman demonstrates both the necessity of the liberal project and its fundamental inadequacy.

The Big Sleep at the Seattle Art Museum

SAM’s autumn series devoted to film noir kicks off this Thursday with Howard Hawks’s seminal The Big Sleep, a film which has played here on Seattle Screens many times before (hard to believe it’s now been a decade since we played it at the Metro), but one which only grows stranger every time you see it. We talked about it on The Frances Farmer Show last spring. Coming up in the Here Comes the Night series are established classics like Chinatown, Kiss of Death, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? and Pickup on South Street, alongside more obscure gems like The File on Thelma Jordan, Pretty Poison, The Naked Alibi, and Douglas Sirk’s Lured, starring Lucille Ball and George Sanders.

Columbus at the Grand Cinema and the Varsity Theatre

Kogonada’s debut feature continues its Seattle-area run this week, expanding to the Grand in Tacoma and the Varsity. The film, about two lonely people (John Cho and Haley Lu Richardson) bonding over the modern architecture of Columbus, Indiana, played here at SIFF before opening theatrically in August (and it will be playing next month as well at VIFF). It’s one of the year’s most striking American films, equal parts Ozu and Linklater, and one that isn’t easily dismissed. I liked it a lot more than my colleagues here at SSS (as we discussed on our SIFF podcast), but Nathan’s review, wrestling with its flaws and strengths, is a terrific read.

Nocturama at the Northwest Film Forum

For some reason only playing for a single show, on Sunday night at the Film Forum, is Bertrand Bonello’s spectacular and befuddling story of a group of young people who coordinate a series of terrorist attacks around Paris and then hole up for the night in a department store. The first half is exceptional suspense filmmaking, relentlessly following the twists and turns of their scheme. The second half dissipates the action while cranking up the tension, as the kids don’t quite know what to do next. It’s one of the more controversial releases of the year, and we talked a bit about it on our second SIFF podcast and Ryan wrote about it this week.

All that Jazz at the Northwest Film Forum

Bob Fosse’s loosely auto-biographical film, about a Broadway director with health and overwork problems (inspired by his attempt to stage Chicago and edit Lenny simultaneously), is the last great musical of the Hollywood studio style, features the best performance of Roy Scheider’s distinguished career and the grandest work of that system’s most distinctive choreographer, and is the best movie of 1979. It plays this week on Saturday and Sunday only on 35mm. Also at the NWFF this weekend is a double feature of documentaries about tap-dancing from George Nierenberg that look really cool: No Maps On My Taps & About Tap, playing Friday and Saturday only.

70mm Festival at the Cinerama

Two terrific American indies open this week in wide release: Ingrid Goes West and Good Time, but we’d remiss not to highlight the latest version of the Cinerama’s festival of 70mm film. The calendar is packed with the usual suspects (Lawrence of Arabia, Vertigo, Aliens, Baraka), but if you’ve never had a chance to see them, the next two weeks will be something special. The highlight of the festival, outside the canonical classics, is undoubtedly Sleeping Beauty, which remains the best of Disney’s animated films. I’d also challenge anyone to only go see Khartoum and It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World while skipping everything else.

Taipei Story at the SIFF Film Center

The new restoration of Edward Yang’s 1985 classic Taipei Story comes to SIFF for three days only this week. A seminal film of the New Taiwan Cinema, Yang’s second feature was co-written by him along with Hou Hsiao-hsien and Chu T’ien-wen (who would co-write all of Hou’s subsequent films), and stars Hou, Wu Nien-jen (accomplished screenwriter, director of A Borrowed Life, star of Yang’s Yi yi) and Tsai Chin (a popular singer). The film chronicles the dissolution of the relationship between Hou and Tsai as they’re caught between the conflicting forces of past and present, capitalism and tradition, at work in rapidly a modernizing Taiwan. Long unavailable in anything like its original form in the US, its restoration (and recent release as part of a Criterion Collection boxset) is one of the cinematic events of the year.
