Furie.jpg

Featured Film:

Furie at the Pacific Place and the AMC Southcenter

You know I was tempted to put Jackie Chan in this spot again, as his Police Story and Police Story 2 have made the rounds and are now playing at the Crest, but Lê Văn Kiệt’s Furie is sticking around for another week and it’s about as close to an old-school 80s era Jackie Chan vehicle as we get nowadays. Veronica Ngo stars as a mother trying to win back her daughter from a gang of organ-harvesting kidnappers in Saigon. It’s quick and colorful with a minimum of subtext and a bunch of great fight sequences, all checking in at the ideal running time of 98 minutes. Also sure to satisfy that martial arts movie itch is Triple Threat, with an international who’s who of action movie stars (Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Scott Adkins, Michael Jai White, Tiger Chen, and so on). For some reason it’s playing one night only, Tuesday March 19, but at a bunch of theatres: The Meridian, Pacific Place, Thornton Place, Alderwood (Regal), Lakewood (AMC), Southcenter, and Gateway (AMC).

Featured Film:

The Image Book at the Grand Illusion

Almost 60 years after Breathless, it remains the case that every new film from Jean-Luc Godard is a major event. The Image Book continues in his recent vein of gnomic thoughts about cinema and history spoken over striking imagery. Trains in particular stand out this go around. There’s a lot going on in it and what you get out of it depends in large part on you. For me, I’m always happy to spend time with a cranky old man who is still upset about cinema’s failure to prevent the Holocaust.
Also out this week are other films by big auteur names: Gaspar Noé who is not my cup of tea, and Nuri Bilge Ceylan, who sometimes is. Noé’s Climax plays at a few theatres around town and is sure to provoke people who enjoy being provoked by art house movies. Ceylan’s The Wild Pear Tree is at the Northwest Film Forum. As studies of obnoxious Turkish men go, it’s definitely about ten minutes shorter than his Palme d’Or winning Winter Sleep, with some similarly sublime moments.

Mutual Appreciation at the Grand Illusion

It doesn’t seem possible that Mutual Appreciation, one of the corwning achievments of the Mumblecore movement (some might say one fo the only good products of the Mumblecore movement) should be old enough to be in need of restoration. But here we are in 2019 and Andrew Bujalski’s now 13 year old film has indeed been restored and is playing four days this week at the Grand Illusion. His prior film, Funny Ha Ha, will be playing there next week. Bujalski has in recent years moved onto somewhat higher profile work: with the oddball minor sensation Computer Chess, the oddball rom-com Results, and the oddball workplace comedy Support the Girls, he’s responsible for some of the finest American films of recent years. Here’s a chance to catch up with where he started. And yes, it kind of killed me not to put Legend of the Demon Cat in this spot. A film far too good to be paired with SIFF’s novelty showing of a  Cat Video Festival.

Jackie Chan at the SIFF Film Center

Apparently the first weekend SIFF played Police Story and Police Story 2 they were hits, because they’ve brought them back for another three days this weekend. With much of the calendar cleared this week for the Oscars (you can catch up with various nominees at a bunch of places around town), there isn’t a whole lot else of note out there. But the Chans are phenomenal, especially the first one, hands down his best film as a director. Catch them while you can. I reviewed them at the Notebook, and Ryan reviewed them here.

Noir City at the SIFF Egyptian

Our Featured Film is a no-brainer this week, as Eddie Muller is back with another festival of film noir, this year focusing on noirs from the 1950s. All the shows are playing at the Egyptian, many of them on 35mm, and it’s a superb mix of recognized classics, underseen gems and films even a long-time noir fan like me doesn’t know anything about. If you’ve seen the big names (Touch of EvilKiss Me DeadlyPickup on South Street), don’t miss the less well-known, but just as good, File of Thelma JordanAngel FaceNightfall and Murder by Contract. The latter plays back-to-back with Touch of Evil on Wednesday night, which is as good a single night of movies that Seattle is likely to get this year. Best thing to do though is to go to some shows you don’t know anything about: you’re almost certain to find something special.

Holiday Movies All Over Town

The convergence of Lunar New Year and Valentine’s Day had blessed us with an embarrassment of cinematic riches this week on Seattle Screens. On the former front, we have new releases The Wandering EarthPegasus and Integrity, along with the continuing run of Peppa Celebrates Chinese New Year and revivals of one of Sammo Hung’s best movies (Pedicab Driver, on 35mm at the Grand Illusion) and Jackie Chan’s best (the restoration of Police Story and Police Story 2 at the Uptown). Valentine’s gives us some inspired programming: Takashi Miike’s Audition at the Northwest Film Forum, Cries and Whispers at SAM, Natural Born Killers at the Central Cinema, I Want to Eat Your Pancreas at the Cinemark theatres (albeit dubbed, apparently), Dick and Jane Drop Acid and Die at the Grand Illusion, alongside more traditional fare like Before Sunrise at the Grand, and Dirty DancingWings of Desire and Cold War at various other theatres. Here’s hoping the snow passes us by, or at least melts quickly, so we can actually get out to some of these great movies.

Peppa Celebrates Chinese New Year at the Meridian and Parkway Plaza

Tuesday marks the start of Lunar New Year, and this most holiest of seasons for Chinese film gets a robust start on Seattle Screens this week. The Pacific Place has the new Pang Ho-cheung romantic comedy, Missbehavior, which promises more of the same from the director of Love in a Puff and Women Who Know How to Flirt are the Luckiest. The Grand Illusion concludes the Hong Kong Kung Fu series they presented jointly with the NWFF with a couple of Sammo Hung movies, 1993’s Blade of Fury and 1989’s Pedicab Driver, one of his very best (it continues into next week as well). The Varsity and the Admiral have Chen Kaige’s Legend of the Demon Cat, which originally premiered in 2017 but was greeted quite positively at the Toronto Film Festival this past fall in a supposed “Director’s Cut.” I haven’t been able to find out which version is playing here. But the most exciting Lunar New Year film of the week has got to be Peppa Celebrates Chinese New Year, a Chinese film in which the beloved animated pig learns all about the holiday. My kids love Peppa almost as much as my wife and I do, and we’re taking them to see it even though we’ll have to read the subtitles for them.

Blackkklansman at A Few Multiplexes

In a futile attempt to get my hopes up, the Academy this week nominated Spike Lee’s Blackkklansman for a bunch of awards, including Best Director and Best Picture. I thought after I first saw it this summer, that this would probably be Spike’s best chance to win the Best Picture Oscar that has eluded him for so long, and the narrative of him beating Green Book, after Do the Right Thing didn’t even get nominated the year Driving Miss Daisy (Green Book‘s closest cinematic analogue) won is irresistible. But it’s probably not going to happen. But maybe? It’s playing this week for a handful of shows at the AMC Seattle (formerly the Metro) and the AMC Alderwood, along with the Regals in Auburn and Lakewood. I never wrote about it here, but I did write a blurb for it a couple weeks ago as part of InReview Online’s Best Films of 2018 round-up, wherein I claim it’s Spike Lee’s Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

Cold War at the SIFF Egyptian

It’s been four year since we launched Seattle Screen Scene, and if there’s one thing I hope we’ve established over that time, it’s that there are a great many more Asian films, specifically films from China, Korea, and India, playing around town than anyone ever seems to notice, and that quite a few of them are very good. If there’s one other thing, it would be that European cinema, at least for the last several decades, has been a vast wasteland of drab, dull, self-important, ugly, and overrated movies. European cinema has been, in my opinion of course and with notable exceptions, for lack of a better word, dead. So I was as surprised as anyone when I watched Pawel Pawlikowski’s follow-up to his Oscar-winning Ida at VIFF last fall and absolutely loved it. A vibrant, breathless, decadently romantic love story set against the sweep of mid-20th Century history, anchored by two fine performances, excellent music and lustrous black and white cinematography that ranks with the best Europe has ever produced (by which I mean Luchino Visconti’s White Nights), it was almost enough to make me rethink my sweeping condemnation of the cinema of an entire continent. Almost.

2018 Documentaries at the Pacific Place

I said I’d do my best not to name whichever film was playing in the Northwest Film Forum’s Shaw Brothers series as our Featured Film every week, so I’m definitely not picking Come Drink With Me, the King Hu classic that started it all, which is playing Wednesday night only. Instead I’m going with the AMC Pacific Place, which is playing 15 of the best documentaries of the year (the ones shortlisted for the Academy Awards nomination) for a couple of shows each over the course of this week. The ones not to miss are: Shirkers, which has otherwise only be available on Netflix, Minding the Gap, and Hale County This Morning, This Evening, each of which had unfortunately brief runs here in Seattle. This might be your last chance to ever see them in a theatre.
