Winter Film Series: “All The King’s Men”
4:00 pm

Based on the Pulitzer-Prize winning novel by Robert Penn Warren, the film focuses on the rise and of course, fall, of a southern demagogue inspired by the notorious Huey Long. It’s an exciting political drama and a brilliantly acted one, winning Academy Awards for its stars, Broderick Crawford and Mercedes McCambridge, and for the film itself. As critic Pauline Kael noted at the time of its release, “It just might make you feel better about the president you’ve got.”

Winter Film Series: “A Face in the Crowd”

An early work of On the Waterfront‘s brilliant director, Elia Kazan, and its gifted writer, Budd Schulberg, the film focuses on a hillbilly guitarist who becomes a stunningly successful TV star. Featuring among others Andy Griffith, Patricia Neal, Walter Matthau, and Anthony Franciosa, as well as media personalities like Walter Winchell, Mike Wallace, and Bennett Cerf who appear as themselves, the concern is with the terrifying political potential of American mass media. Once again, emphatically relevant.

Winter Film Series: “Allegro Non Troppo”

In a riot of color and music, master animator Bruno Bozzetto offers his irreverent tribute to Disney’s Fantasia. Transcending parody, this erotic, satiric, and delirious animated feature represents Bozzetto’s vision of the world. In six distinct episodes, fantastic cartoon creatures march, slither, and bounce to the classical rhythms of Debussy, Dvorak, Ravel, Sibelius, Vivaldi, and Stravinsky. Maurizio Nichetti stars in the equally wild live-action sequences that introduce each piece.
