True Stories at the Northwest Film Forum

The highlights for this week on Seattle Screens are mostly movies I haven’t seen yet. Claire Denis’s High Life expands throughout the area, as does the Aretha Franklin doc Amazing Grace. The Pacific Place has the new Emily Dickinson film Wild Nights with Emily, while the new Mike Leigh joint plays at the Meridian and the Theatre Formerly Known as the Metro. The Cinerama has a whole series of anime, I’d recommend Mamoru Hosada’s Wolf Children as the one that doesn’t get revived all that often but is nonetheless as great as the best of the oft-screened Ghibli classics. SAM’s playing Kind Hearts and Coronets, if you’re in the mood to see Alec Guinness get killed as like a dozen different characters. And the Grand Illusion has an actual Jean Grémillon movie, can’t remember the last time we’ve had a chance to see one of those around here. But while I haven’t seen it yet, I have seen the video for “Wild Wild Life” and I’m gonna be super jealous of all of you who get to go see True Stories at the NWFF on Saturday night. It’s on 35mm!

Featured Film:

Long Day’s Journey Into Night at the SIFF Uptown

It’s another very strong week on Seattle Screens, with runs of An Elephant Sitting Still and The Fate of Lee Khan continuing at the Northwest Film Forum, Yuen Woo-ping’s solid fight film Master Z: Ip Man Legacy opening at the Meridian and a couple of suburban theatres, and Mark Cousins’s very good doc The Eyes of Orson Welles beginning its sporadic run at the NWFF. There are also a bunch of solid rep options: Clue and Clueless at the Central Cinema, The Matrix and The General at the Grand, Life of Brian at the Uptown, and a whole bunch of films from 1999 at the Cinerama. But the must-see films of the week are Claire Denis’s Robert Pattinson-starring sci-fi movie High Life, opening at the Lincoln Square and the Uptown, and Bi Gan’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night, playing exclusively at the Uptown. I’m giving the edge here to Bi Gan, because I’ve actually seen his movie and it’s terrific. The hour-long continuous 3D take will get the headlines, but it’s the movie’s mood that will stick with you: film noir mystery and Wong Kar-wai romanticism condensed into a meandering labyrinth of memory and loss.

Ash is Purest White at the SIFF Uptown

My favorite film of 2018 opens this week at the Uptown. I’ve been writing and talking about Ash is Purest White director Jia Zhangke a lot this year, with a career overview at Mubi and a lecture about him in Vancouver along with an essay at VIFF’s blog about his use of music. And there should be even more coming in the near future. But this week is packed with other great films if, like me, you’ve seen Zhao Tao uphold the jianghu code four times already. The Uptown also has Christian Petzold’s tremendous Transit, a kind of variation on Casablanca starring Franz Rogowski, who is a kind of variation on Joaquin Phoenix. We talked about it on our VIFF podcast last fall. If opening two of the best movies of 2018 wasn’t enough, the Grand Illusion has one of the best movies ever, with The Godfather on 35mm. And just to make things super crazy, the Northwest Film Forum has both Khalik Allah’s acclaimed Black Mother and Hu Bo’s monumental An Elephant Sitting Still, and then late in the week they open the new restoration of King Hu’s classic The Fate of Lee Khan (review at Mubi). It’s a good week on Seattle Screens.

War and Peace at the SIFF Uptown

It’s a great week for long movies, as the Northwest Film Forum has the acclaimed two-part A Bread Factory, which looks pretty good, though I haven’t had a chance to see it, and SIFF has the new restoration of Sergei Bondarchuk’s legendary adaptation of War and Peace, which at just over seven hours, is almost four Bread Factories long. It’s a big movie in every sense of the word, not just running time: the cast of extras runs into the quintuple digits, the sets and costumes are spectacular, and it has more diversity of film technique than anything this side of Arnaud Desplechin. In terms of film epics, it ranks with the works of DW Griffith, Abel Gance, Sergei Eisenstein (Alexander Nevsky in particular) in ambition, while also basically inventing everything Terrence Malick did in The Thin Red Line and The New World. SIFF’s playing it in four parts, so you can stretch it out over a few days, or all at once on Sunday.

What is Democracy at the Northwest Film Forum

After all the crazy action of last week’s Furie (and Triple Threat, if you managed to snag a ticket last Tuesday), what better this week than a movie about a bunch of people talking about the meaning of democracy? Astra Taylor’s new documentary likely has little in the ways of fisticuffs, although it does have Cornel West, still as animated as any action star.

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).

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.
