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.

David Lynch at SIFF

Not immune to the hype surrounding the revival of Twin Peaks, perennial local favorite David Lynch gets the retrospective treatment starting this week at SIFF, with Eraserhead and The Elephant Man at the Film Center and Lost Highway at the Egyptian, all presented on 35mm. In coming weeks, they’ll be playing acknowledged masterpieces Mulholland Dr. and Blue Velvet, alongside Inland Empire and Dune, oddities great and notorious. I recommend watching them concurrently with the Ozu series at SAM and SIFF’s own on-going Douglas Sirk series (which features my favorite Sirk this week: Written on the Wind). Run the full gamut of the surreality of melodrama and see how your brain feels. Ryan’s got our series preview.

Makoto Shinkai’s Your Name.

The latest film from the master of sentimental anime finally opens here in the US after smashing box office records last fall throughout Asia. Shinkai is a maker of supernaturally gorgeous romances like 2007’s 5 Centimeters per Second and 2013’s The Garden of Words, and the unusually punctuated Your Name. appears to follow in this vein. Based on his own novel, it’s about a pair of teenagers, country girl and city boy, who begin intermittently switching bodies. It’s playing in both English and the original Japanese at various theatres around town, be sure to check the listings to make sure you get the proper version.

After Hours at the Grand Illusion

SAM’s got Yasujiro Ozu’s unimpeachable Early Summer playing on 35mm Thursday night, and the Central Cinema has a fine double feature for our times of Nazi-punching and conspiratorial malevolence with Raiders of the Lost Ark and They Live, but if I’m going to a movie this April Fool’s Day, it’s gotta be Martin Scorsese’s After Hours on 35 at the Grand Illusion. Griffin Dunne plays a mild-mannered office drone who in his more or less innocent quest to just meet a nice girl gets sucked through the looking glass into a nightmarish world of a city that refuses to operate by conventional standards of decency and logic. With Teri Garr, Linda Fiorentino, Rosanna Arquette, Catherine O’Hara and more as the agents of his doom, it’s tremendously fun. One of the great director’s best and most underrated films.

Song to Song at the Pacific Place

Surprisingly absolutely no one, the latest film from Terrence Malick has proven to be divisive among critics and audiences. If you happen to be one of those people who think that not only are his early films (Badlands and Days of Heaven) great, but so are his middle films The Thin Red Line and The New World) and his late films (The Tree of Life, To the Wonder and Knight of Cups), and we here at Seattle Screen Scene most definitely are in that camp, then the unheralded release of Song to Song, opening with no advance publicity at the Pacific Place this week, is a cause of both extreme consternation and great excitement. If Malick, or just late Malick, is not your cup of tea, then by all means do not miss the next film up in SAM’s Ozu series, Late Spring, playing on 35mm on Thursday. The rest of us will be happily twirling twirling twirling into the AMC.

Beau travail at the Northwest Film Forum

For two days in the middle of this week (Tuesday and Wednesday to be exact) the Northwest Film Forum is showing a 35mm print of the best film from that very fine movie year 1999, Claire Denis’s Beau travail. An adaptation of Herman Melville’s novella Billy Budd, it stars Denis Levant as the commander of a French Foreign Legion troop stationed in Djibouti. He becomes increasingly obsessed with a beautiful new recruit, played by Grégoire Colin, understandable given the oppressive heat and the gorgeousness of Agnès Godard’s images of soldiers at work. The plot ends in tragedy, but the movies ends with the rhythm of the night.

Fire Walk with Me at the Seattle Art Museum

Kicking off a Lynchian spring here in Seattle (SIFF’s retrospective launches in April) is the Seattle Art Museum’s presentation of the prequel to David Lynch’s acclaimed television series Twin Peaks. It’s playing two nights only (Friday and Saturday), the first night with a handful of special guests: Wendy Robie, Gary Hershberger, and Sheryl Lee, who gives one of cinema’s all-time great performances in the film as the doomed Laura Palmer. We talked about it last year on the first ever episode of The Frances Farmer Show, and Ryan’s got a review of it here as well.

Anatahan at the Grand Illusion

Josef von Sternberg’s final film, long unavailable in anything like a proper form in the US, has been newly restored and its playing this week at the Grand Illusion. Based on a true legend about a dozen Japanese sailors who are stranded on a remote island in 1944 and remain there for seven years, where their struggles for dominance and the island’s lone woman (daughter of a plantation owner) play out in lush, lurid dementia. Shot entirely outside the studio system on an artificial jungle set, it’s a harrowing vision of a world gone Sternberg, society reduced to its most basic urges and plays for power, yet twisted just enough to create an uncertain self-awareness of its own artificiality. It doesn’t have a Dietrich, but it might be the great director’s greatest film. We talked about it a few years ago on the Josef von Sternberg episode of They Shot Pictures.

Featured Film:

Akira at the Central Cinema

If you’re my age, the first anime you ever saw was probably Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1988 epic Akira. Based on Otomo’s own 1982 manga, it’s the story of a biker kid named Tetsuo who has supernatural powers and rampages around a post-apocalyptic Neo-Tokyo as a variety of forces (his gang leader, the military, a resistance group) try to corral him and stop him from releasing the eponymous psychic who destroyed old Tokyo. Ground-breaking and breath-taking in its animation, it’s also one of the best examples of sci-fi anime’s tendency toward nigh-incomprehensible philosophical abstraction, it’s one of the essential films of the 1980s. The Central Cinema is playing it all week, but you should go on Saturday or Tuesday, when they’re playing it with its original Japanese soundtrack.
