SONG OF THE THIN MAN

DIRECTOR: EDWARD BUZZELL
US, 1947
The last of the six classic THIN MAN films pairs William Powell as Nick Charles—the nattiest ex-cop you’ll ever meet—and the inimitable Myrna Loy as Nora, his wry urbane socialite wife. The story begins with a murder on a yacht and leads the crime-fighting couple through Manhattan jazz clubs offering them plenty of cocktails and hep-cat lingo along the way. Sure, a few people get murdered, but it’s all so very stylish and civilized. (86 mins.)

SEXY BEAST

DIRECTOR: JONATHAN GLAZER
UK/SPAIN, 2000
Famed music video director (Radiohead, Blur) Jonathan Glazer’s first feature updates the classic heist film with equal doses of sharp comedy and chilling menace. Gal (Ray Winstone), a London gangster retired to the south of Spain with his porn star wife and pool boy, is reluctantly pulled back into a life of crime by his old mentor, Don Logan (Ben Kingsley), a frighteningly and hilariously unhinged maniac. “Spouting profanity, staring daggers at any perceived enemy, and talking nuts to himself in a mirror like De Niro in a Cockney TAXI DRIVER, Kingsley creates an unforgettable monster.”—Rolling Stone. (89 mins.)

THE 10TH VICTIM

DIRECTOR: ELIO PETRI
ITALY/FRANCE, 1965
“Petri’s black comedy imagines the hunting of humans as a government-sanctioned, globally televised sport, a gladiatorial combat meant to relieve tension and settle conflicts in an otherwise anesthetized world devoted to mindless consumption. THE 10TH VICTIM amusingly remains a classic ‘commedia all’italiana’ of the 1960s, with Marcello Mastroianni in his archetypical role as the castrated Casanova struggling to maintain his inbred macho poise as he is assaulted not only by Ursula Andress’s gun-toting Amazon, but by a mercenary wife (Luce Bonifassy) and an impatient mistress (Elsa Martinelli), who have joined forces against him.”—The New York Times. (92 mins.)

WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN

DIRECTOR: PEDRO ALMÓDOVAR
SPAIN, 1988
The film that made the director an international cinema icon, WOMEN—in typical Almodóvar style—weaves an array of colorful characters into a single, manic-depressive symphony. Carmen Maura highlights as the heroine Pepa, a TV star heartbroken by her lover Ivan (Fernando Guillén), and desperate to find her bearings. “Gorging on the bad, bad world of TV soap operas, tabloid news, and those Roy Lichtenstein cartoons where anguished women lament their lives with ‘Brad’, Almodovar gets a wonderful rise out of life’s lows.”—Washington Post. (90 mins.)

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL HIGH SCHOOL

DIRECTOR: ALLAN ARKUSH
US, 1979
When Principal Togar tries to confiscate ex-cheerleader and aspiring songwriter Riff Randall’s (P.J. Soles) ticket to the upcoming Ramones concert and burn their records, the students enlist the Ramones in a punk-style coup. With rollicking performances by the Ramones and a wall-to-wall soundtrack that includes Chuck Berry, Devo, Alice Cooper, Fleetwood Mack, Nick Lowe, and more, B-movie master Roger Corman’s spoof of 50’s musicals and ode to personal freedom still rocks. (93 mins.)

STRANGERS ON A TRAIN

DIRECTOR: ALFRED HITCHCOCK
US, 1951
Tennis pro Guy Haines is in a bad marriage when he’s approached by a perfect stranger, Bruno (Robert Walker), who idly contemplates the perfect murder. Bruno speculates that if he gets Guy’s wife out of the way, then Guy could take care of Bruno’s untenable father and each could have an alibi for the murder they’d be suspected of and no discernable motive for the crime they committed. “Bruno’s manner is pushy and insinuating, with homoerotic undertones . . . not a psychological study, however, but a first-rate thriller with odd little kinks now and then.”—Roger Ebert. (101 mins.)

MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE

DIRECTOR: TERRY JONES, TERRY GILLIAM
UK, 1983
With something to offend most any sensibility, the comedy troupe of Monty Python offers this comprehensive and nonsensical guide to life—from birth to death. Filled with uproariously funny sketches and songs, the film is a grab bag of outrageous contemplations of the absurdity of life where everything is over the top and nothing is sacred …well, perhaps one thing. (107 mins.)

    I would love to attend Monty Python’s The meaning of Life on Aug 27, because I am British and often make no sense. So the 2 hours spent watching Monty Python movies is usually the only time I feel normal!
