After the Storm at the SIFF Uptown

Japanese director Kore-eda Hirokazu’s latest, hot off a run at SIFF, opens this week at the Uptown. It’s another of Kore-eda’s quiet examinations of family life, with a run-down father attempting to win back his ex-wife, connect with his son, cope with his mom and sister’s disapproval and avoid writing his second novel while working as a private detective to fuel his gambling addiction. Hiroshi Abe is excellent as the dad, as is Koreeda regular Kirin Kiki as the mother. We reviewed it at VIFF last fall.

Funeral Parade of Roses at the Northwest Film Forum

In addition to a program of eight of his short films (playing Sunday only) the Northwest Film Forum this weekend presents the restoration of the late Toshio Matsumoto’s 1969 Japanese New Wave classic Funeral Parade of Roses, which I haven’t seen, but which they describe as a “shattering, kaleidoscopic masterpiece . . . one of the most subversive and intoxicating films of the late 1960s: a headlong dive into a dazzling, unseen Tokyo night-world of drag queen bars and fabulous divas, fueled by booze, drugs, fuzz guitars, performance art and black mascara.” Sold.

An Autumn Afternoon at the Seattle Art Museum

With the Seattle International Film Festival only one week away, two big spring retrospectives come to an end this week with two of the best movies of the past 60 years or so, both playing on 35mm film. SIFF wraps up its David Lynch series with his masterpiece, the 2001 dream/nightmare Mulholland Dr. It plays Friday through Sunday only at the Film Center. But while Lynch is frequently revived on Seattle Screens (though not, as SIFF has mostly done, on 35mm), the conclusion of SAM’s Yasujiro Ozu series is the must-see film of the week. Ozu is no stranger here either, of course, but this week they’ve got his final film, and what I think is his very best, 1962’s An Autumn Afternoon, which is more rarely revived. It captures more of the things that made Ozu great, the funny, the bittersweet, the devastating, than any other film, along with his sublimely idiosyncratic approach to framing and cutting and his most expressive use of color.

Baahubali: The Conclusion (S.S. Rajamouli, 2017)

baahu 3

S.S. Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Beginning (dutifully reviewed here at SSS) was a work of grand spectacle, visual wonder and narrative simplicity. It found Rajamouli delivering a shot across the bow, if you will, announcing his intent to deliver a film worthy of the epics which drive the mechanics of the plot, and could stand side by side with Hollywood. But it is Baahubali 2: The Conclusion which truly delivers on that promise.

A Quiet Passion at the Seven Gables, the Meridian and the Grand

One of our favorite movies of 2016, which Evan wrote about last fall at the Vancouver Film Festival and which we also discussed on the latest episode of The Frances Farmer Show, finally opens here at the Seven Gables and the Meridian and in Tacoma at the Grand. It’s an Emily Dickinson biopic starring Cynthia Nixon and directed by Terence Davies that is simultaneously a classical literary biography and a distinctly Davies kind of film, and somewhat surprisingly, is as bitingly funny as any film released last year. There are a couple of fine Chinese romantic comedies at the Pacific Place in Love Off the Cuff and This Is Not What I Expected, and we haven’t yet made it out to Herman Yau’s Shock Wave or Baahubali 2 (although everyone else seems to have seen it), but I doubt there’s anything better to do in town this week than see A Quiet Passion.

Featured Film:

Baahubali 2 at Various Multiplexes

One of the most-anticapted movies of 2017 opens this week at the Lincoln Square, the Meridian, the Parkway Plaza in Tukwila, the Century in Federal Way and the AMC in Lynnwood (along with a handful of other theatres in outlying areas). The sequel to the 2015 epic Baahubali: The BeginningBaahubali 2: The Conclusion promises more of the same from director SS Rajamouli: lush romance, bloody battles, and a fantastical CGI mise-en-scène beyond the bounds of acceptability in decrepit Hollywood. In the first part, a young man of immense strength named Shividu, living in an isolated village, discovered that he was the disinherited prince of a glorious kingdom. A lengthy flashback revealed the treachery of his uncle in (probably) murdering his father after a mighty battle in which Shividu’s father was declared king. We’ll have at least one review of the movie up this week as soon as we can see it. Note that there are three different versions playing around town, in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. The film was made in Telugu, and tickets for it in that language are the most expensive, followed in price by tickets for the shows in Tamil, and finally Hindi,  which appear to be regularly priced. The movie is only playing in its original Telugu version at Cinemark/Century theatres.

HyperNormalization at the Northwest Film Forum

There are a lot of highlights this week on Seattle Screens, from new releases (James Gray’s The Lost City of Z, Cristian Mungiu’s Graduation), continuing runs (Makoto Shinkai’s Your Name.) and the next films in retrospectives on Yasujiro Ozu, David Lynch and Douglas Sirk (Good MorningBlue VelvetDune and Imitation of Life, respectively), as well as the start of the Cinerama’s big Anime Festival. But if I had to see one movie this week, it would be the Northwest Film Forum’s free screening on Saturday of Adam Curtis’s HyperNormalization. Curtis is a documentarian for the BBC, and if you’re familiar with his work, this new one won’t be anything new. It’s rather another facet in his continuing argument that our modern world is the result of elite fear, a reaction to the instability of the post-industrial world, defined by corporate and governmental desires for stability and commodification. The story this time traces the careers of Muammar Gaddafi and Donald Trump, with sidelines on Russian manipulation of media and the deadening effect of the internet and social media (Our Fake World) on movements for social change. It’s three hours of horror, humor and Brian Eno, and, flawed or incomplete as Curtis’s argument may be, it explains our present moment as well as anything else I’ve seen.
