4 Stars - This works because Lynch is absolutely uncompromising. This is a movie to surrender yourself to.- Roger Ebert

It's a dark dreamscape that needs to be experienced, not explained
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

A gorgeously rounded picture, one that starts out with a glamorous come-hither wink and has the good grace to follow through, although perhaps not in the way we expect.

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me
1992, USA, 135 minutes
directed by David Lynch, written by David Lynch & Robert Engels
starring Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, Mädchen Amick, Dana Ashbrook
Fri: 10:20, Watch The Trailer!

Few of [Lynch's] movies are as pungently atmospheric and bleak as this one. But if Fire Walk With Me is among his messiest in terms of execution, in retrospect we can see how the film serves as a bridge between his '80s examinations of small-town oddness (Blue Velvet, the Twin Peaks series) and his later explorations of imperiled female protagonists (Mulholland Dr., Inland Empire).
- Tim Grierson, LA Weekly

Monday & Tuesday April 12 & 13

Junior Bonner
1972, USA, 100 minutes
dir. Sam Peckinpah, starring Steve McQueen, Robert Preston, Ida Lupino, Ben Johnson, Joe Don Baker

Junior Bonner is really a gentle character study and a lyrical portrait of family, respect and integrity in the face of adversity. One of Peckinpah's loveliest and most personal films.
- Sean Axmaker, Turner Classic Movies

- plus on the same bill -

Jackie Brown
1997, USA, 154 minutes
directed by Quentin Tarantino, written for the screen by Quentin Tarantino based on a novel by Elmore Leonard
starring Pam Grier, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Forster, Bridget Fonda, Michael Keaton, Robert De Niro
9:30, Watch The Trailer!

4 Stars - This is the movie that proves Tarantino is the real thing, and not just a two-film wonder boy. It's not a retread of "Reservoir Dogs" or "Pulp Fiction," but a new film in a new style, and it evokes the particular magic of Elmore Leonard--who elevates the crime novel to a form of sociological comedy.- Roger Ebert

Director Quentin Tarantino's first full-length feature after 1994's phenomenally successful Pulp Fiction is every bit in the same class as his previous two films, and cements his status as a director of genuine style, intelligence and, in this case, warmth.- All Movie

Wednesday & Thursday April 14 & 15

John Milius double feature

The Wind and the Lion
1975, USA, 119 minutes
written & directed by John Milius
starring Sean Connery, Candice Bergen, Brian Keith, John Huston, Geoffrey Lewis, Steve Kanaly
7:30, Watch The Trailer!

Nominated For Two Academy Awards including Best Score Jerry Goldsmith

Milius puts dialogue in the mouths of his actors that sends chills down the spine when one is reminded that history is more or less repeating itself.- All Movie Guide

By turns amusing, compelling, and utterly preposterous, it remains an entertaining and surprisingly relevant film for our time.
