 WHITNEY – July 6 

Documentary about Whitney Houston from Kevin MacDonald, a capable director (Last King of Scotland, State of Play) and an Oscar winner for One Day in September, a documentary on the group Black September that held Israeli athletes hostage at the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Munich.



The new Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, Milk) film starring Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara, and Jack Black is about John Callahan, while on his rocky path to sobriety after a life-changing accident, discovers the healing power of art, willing his injured hands into drawing hilarious, often controversial cartoons, which bring him a new lease on life.

Dont WorryTrailer.


Lauren Greenfield brings her new documentary that has an important premise: investigates the pathologies that have created the richest society the world has ever seen.


McQUEEN – July 20

Another documentary, this one about the famed and eccentric fashion designer, Alexander McQueen, who hung himself at age 40.



Lifelong friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about the intersection of race and class, set against the backdrop of a rapidly gentrifying Oakland. It does not look great, but I’ve heard many people raving about it at the Atlanta Film Festival and so far the critics (for what it’s worth) have joined in.

FILM 9: From one of my favorite director’s, Robert Altman, comes tonight’s #Seventies flick, “McCabe & Mrs. Miller” (1971). Plot involves a charismatic #gambler John McCabe (Warren Beatty), who arrives in a mining #community and decides to open a #brothel. The local residents are impressed by his #confident #demeanor and fast talk, but crafty prostitute Constance Miller (Julie Christie) sees through McCabe's words and realizes he isn't as sharp as he seems. Film critic A.O. Scott (@nytimes) listed it as one of his five favorite films. #theseventies #RobertAltman #McCabe #juliechristie #warrenbeatty #western #cowboy #the_education_of_gortnacul
“The King” documentary from Eugene Jarecki takes a #musical road trip across the U.S. in Elvis #Presley's 1963 #Rolls #Royce during the 2016 #presidential #election, comparing #Elvis's transition from #country boy to "The King" to #America's transformation into an empire. In summary: “A provocative argument, but even those disinclined to be persuaded by it can enjoy the mode through which Jarecki presents it.” Our short review available now. #TheKing #nowplaying #documentary #politics #Trump #Clinton #roadtrip #folk #blue #music #americandream
It’s hard to describe just how incredible the opening scene of Social Network is: #Fincher, #Sorkin, Reznor/Ross - what a combination. Now consider the cross-layering of the life of vanity (bottom) versus the life of study (top) within the laboratory of the #Turing Test & ask yourself the question [re: self-determinacy & #Artificial #Intelligence] whether any of your independent decision-making is anything more than a social behavior instilled in you by #culture? Routines, sure. But is it worse? Maybe you’re stuck in proverbial @westworldhbo loops? Next time your date gets boring, spice it up with some #metaphysical quandaries. Or just check your #Facebook, again. 🆘
Of all the potentially great films premiering at the #Venice #FilmFestival, a @boyerased may be the most timely. Based on Garrard Conley's memoir and starring Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and Joel Edgerton (also directed & wrote), the #film follows the son of a #Baptist #preacher who is forced to take part in a #gay conversion program.
