Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain at the Beacon

The early evening showing of Death Race 2000 on Saturday is sold out, so unless you’ve already got a ticket, you’re not going to be able to make yourself a killer double feature of it and Tsui Hark’s fantasy wuxia masterpiece. If you are going to Death Race though, you owe it to yourself to stick around for the late show, because movies don’t get any wilder than Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain, which is about Yuen Biao being a human in a war between color-coded armies (he fights Sammo Hung, as usual) who gets lost in the middle of a war between the gods and somehow might end up saving everyone. It’s part of a Beacon miniseries on 80s fantasy wuxia, with Tsui and Ching Siu-tung’s A Chinese Ghost Story (another indisputable classic) to follow next week and Holy Flame of the Martial World the week after that. Elsewhere around town, Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering with You is a worthy follow-up to his excellent Your Name. and the Rohmer series continues at SAM with Claire’s Knee. Also at the Beacon: many versions of Alec Guiness get killed in Kind Hearts and Coronets.

Featured Film:

Eric Rohmer at the Seattle Art Museum

I somehow missed that the terrific Eric Rohmer series started at SAM last week, so apologies if you missed out on Pauline at the Beach because of me. But there’s still a lot more great Rohmer to come over the next several Thursday nights, starting with this week’s show of La collectionneuse. The series skips around the career of the greatest of all French New Wave directors, with four of his Moral Tales and three of his Comedies and Proverbs, and one of his Four Seasons and another miscellaneous one in the mix. The Green Ray, playing on February 13, is probably the best, but they’re all basically perfect so it’s kind of silly to rank them and you really should see them all. Elsewhere around town, SIFF’s Agnès Varda series continues with One Sings, the Other Doesn’t, and her last film, the lovely autobiography Varda by Agnès. And in what is sure to be one of the anime events of the year, the Beacon has all six episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion and Shin Godzilla genius Hideaki Anno’s Gunbuster on Sunday afternoon. There’s just time enough to watch it before the Seahawks game.

Agnès Varda at the SIFF Film Center

SIFF launches a mini-retrospective on the late, great French director Agnès Varda this week. Emphasis on the “mini-” unfortunately, as her masterpieces Cléo from 5 to 7 and Vagabond get only one show each, on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, respectively. There’s more Varda at SIFF in the coming weeks though. And later in the week the Film Center also has single shows of Pedro Almodóvar’s classic screwball Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (you can catch his latest, Pain and Glory, which like Women also stars Antonio Banderas, at the Parkway Plaza in Tukwila), and Terrence Malick’s 1978 Days of Heaven (his latest, A Hidden Life, is still at the Oak Tree and the Uptown).

Little Women in Wide Release

Two of the finest films of the year open this week in wide release, and while much of the buzz in my area of the internet seems to revolve around the Safdie’s Uncut Gems, which is terrific, I like Greta Gerwig’s Little Women more. It’s a lovely movie, of course, and the source material is impeccable, but the ways in which Gerwig manipulates its structure to make it unmistakably her picture as much as Louisa May Alcott’s is extremely impressive. It’s got great sets, great acting (Emma Watson’s performance as Meg is my favorite), and a whole lot of great hair–just some of its many beauties.

A Hidden Life at the Egyptian, the Grand, and the Lincoln Square

A certain blockbuster has sucked up most of the screens around town, but while you’re waiting for Christmas morning to open up to two of the finest movies of the year (Greta Gerwig’s Little Women and Josh & Benny Safdie’s Uncut Gems), you can catch Terrence Malick’s latest at three strategically placed locations around the Puget Sound area. An epic of sorts about a man, since sainted, who refused to swear an oath of allegiance to Hitler and the Nazi party and was executed for it, it’s one of Malick’s most fascinating films from a shockingly productive and idiosyncratic decade. No mainstream Hollywood filmmaker more challenges his audience, and Malick’s 2010s will likely be remembered more fondly by history than they have been in his own time. A Hidden Life isn’t a perfect film, though I’m admittedly more ambivalent on it than some of my colleagues, but it’s certainly among the most thought-provoking movies of the year. Catch it on a big screen while you can.

Make Way for Tomorrow at the Beacon

The Awful Truth is one of the great screwballs of all time, the prototypical Comedy of Remarriage and among the finest work by stars Cary Grant and Irene Dunne. And it’s only the second-best movie Leo McCarey made in 1937. The best is Make Way for Tomorrow, a very sad comedy, or a very funny tragedy, about an elderly couple who’s children can’t afford to support them together, and so they’re split among their children’s homes. An avowed influence on Yasujiro Ozu, it’s one of the finest movies classical Hollywood ever made at it’s playing three days this week at the Beacon, just in time for holiday season familial guilt. The Beacon’s also got Mr. Arkadin, arguably Orson Welles’s weirdest movie, and Nagisa Oshima’s sublime Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence, with David Bowie as a World War II prisoner of Ryuichi Sakamoto and Takashi Kitano.

Paranoid Data at the Northwest Film Forum

Despite the fact that Christmas films have already been sneaking on to Seattle Screens for the last week, it is still too early for that kind of thing. Thankfully, the Northwest Film Forum is headed in a different direction this weekend, with a bunch of sci-fi films from the 80s and 90s under the heading “Paranoid Data: Pre-Millennium Tension in Film“. Where else in town can you watch a Harun Farocki doc back-to-back with a 35m print of Johnny Mnemonic? The series also includes a 35 print of Kathryn Bigelow’s 1995 stealth classic Strange Days, David Cronenberg’s Scanners, and a movie I’ve loved since I was seven years old, John Badham’s WarGames. The Beacon has the best movie in town this week, with Night of the Hunter, which just might be the greatest movie ever, and shout out to the Grand, where on Saturday you can watch Marriage Story, The Irishman, Parasite, and Eyes Wide Shut all in a row.

SATANTANGO
Featured Film:

Sátántangó at the Northwest Film Forum

What better way to spend Thanksgiving weekend than with a six+ hour Hungarian slow cinema epic about the decay of society in the wake of the collapse of the Iron Curtain? I saw Sátántangó at the Film Forum 15 years ago or so, and it remains one of my favorite movie-going days. It’s a singular experience, and one that doesn’t come around often. Elsewhere around town, the Beacon has Umbrellas of Cherbourg (another of my favorite theatrical experiences), SAM wraps their noir series with David Lynch’s Mulholland Dr., and the Crest has two Netflix movies that are two of the best American movies of 2019, with Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman and Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story.

Bound at the Beacon

The Wachowskis’ debut feature, wherein Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly scheme to steal a bunch of Joe Pantoliano’s money, immediately marked them as filmmakers to watch in coming years, and the Beacon is bringing it back this weekend as part of their on-going Sex Work is Work series, which this week also includes one of Max Ophuls’s masterpieces, his final film, Lola Montès, about the notorious woman whose romances covered a large swath of mid-19th century European history. The Beacon’s also got The Last Waltz this week, which is just about as perfect a Thanksgiving film as you’re likely to find.

The Irishman at the Cinerama and the Crest

Martin Scorsese’s new superhero movie about an Irish guy who fights crime opens this week at the Cinerama and the Crest (and also a theatre in Redmond). At least, I assume that’s what the movie is about, I haven’t been able to see it yet and I haven’t really been following the news. Elsewhere around town the Beacon has a killer line-up of The Secret of NIMH, Angel’s Egg and Klute, while the Grand brings back my favorite movie of the year so far, Takashi Miike’s First Love, SAM has the Lee Marvin classic Point Blank, the Uptown has a Romanian Film Festival, which includes The Whistlers, a movie we discuss and recommend on our VIFF podcast, and the Egyptian has a live accompaniment to Yasujiro Ozu’s Dragnet Girl.
