Thursday & Friday, October 7 & 8

a Federico Fellini / Giulietta Masina double bill

La strada
1954, Italy, 108 minutes
directed by Federico Fellini; starring Anthony Quinn, Giulietta Masina, Richard Basehart, Aldo Silvani; music by Nino Rota; in Italian with English subtitles

Academy Award winner, Best Foreign Language Film

Signor Fellini has used his small cast, and, equally important, his camera, with the unmistakable touch of an artist. His vignettes fill his movie with beauty, sadness, humor and understanding.
- A.H. Weiler, New York Times

La Strada is the first film that can be called entirely 'Felliniesque.'
- Roger Ebert

- plus on the same bill -

Juliet of the Spirits
1965, Italy/France, 137 minutes
directed by Federico Fellini; starring Giulietta Masina, Sandra Milo, Mario Pisu, Valentina Cortese

At once an eye-popping display of bravura and a work of compassionate insight. - Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

A mad, resplendent peacock of a film, a cinematographic riot of color and sensuality that evokes its era - the swinging mid-'60s - as much as any movie made during those giddy years.
- Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

Friday, October 8

Mon & Tues: 7:30 & 9:30, Watch The Trailer!

Subversive, provocative and unexpected, Exit Through the Gift Shop delights in taking you by surprise, starting quietly but ending up in a hall of mirrors as unsettling as anything Lewis Carroll's Alice ever experienced. - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

That rarest of art documentaries, one that actually leaves viewers with a better sense of the gifted versus the phony.
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

Wednesday & Thursday, October 13 & 14

Diary of a Mad Housewife
1970, USA, 95 minutes - Not Available On DVD!
directed by Frank Perry, written by Eleanor Perry based on the novel by Sue Kaufman, starring Carrie Snodgress, Richard Benjamin, Frank Langella
Wed & Thurs: 7:30

Carrie Snodgress nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award, winner of Best Actress Golden Globe

Frank Perry's bleak study of the lot of a beleaguered Manhattan housewife features three excellent performances. It remains a provocative work - Michael Costello, All Music

It's quirky and very much of its time but boasts in the lead roles two comedy character actors working perfectly in tune. A nice little oddity. - Film 4

- plus on the same bill -

A Woman Under the Influence
1974, USA, 155 minutes
written & directed by John Cassavetes, starring Gena Rowlands, Peter Falk, Fred Draper, Lady Rowlands, Katherine Cassavetes, Matthew Cassel
Wed & Thurs: 9:25, Watch The Trailer!

Nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Actress Gena Rowlands & Best Director John Cassavetes

Perhaps the greatest of Cassavetes' films. - Roger Ebert

Falk and the rest of the cast are exceptional - even the smallest roles feel spot-on - but Rowlands is the film.

- Tim Grierson, Village Voice

The most frightening scenes are extremely compelling, and this is a thoughtful film that does prompt serious discussion.
- Nora Sayre, New York Times
