THE LONG GOODBYE

Starring ELLIOTT GOULD, STERLING HAYDEN, NINA VAN PALLANDT, JIM BOUTON

(1973, Robert Altman) Raymond Chandler, Altman-style, as Elliott Gould’s Philip Marlowe – in 70s L.A., but still driving a ’48 Lincoln – encounters Sterling Hayden’s boozy novelist and mysterious Nina Van Pallandt while searching for pal Jim Bouton (the ex-Yankee pitcher). “A New Wave Anti-Noir… The closest Hollywood ever came to making its Breathless” – J. Hoberman. Approx. 112 min. 35mm.
1:00, 5:20, 9:35

“ATTEMPTS THE IMPOSSIBLE AND PULLS IT OFF! Altman's most entertaining, most richly complex film since M*A*S*H and McCabe and Mrs. Miller."
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“EASILY THE MOST INTELLIGENT OF ALL SCREEN ADAPTATIONS OF THE WRITER'S WORK. Altman constructs not only a comment on the changes in values in America over the last three decades, but a critique of film noir mythology… Shot in gloriously steely colours by Vilmos Zsigmond with a continually moving camera, wondrously scripted by Leigh Brackett, and superbly acted all round, it's one of the finest movies of the '70s.” 
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)

THE BRIDE WORE BLACK

Starring JEANNE MOREAU

(1968, François Truffaut) Jeanne Moreau tracks down, in five different styles, the five salauds who… Truffaut’s ultimate Hitchcock homage, right down to the source material (a Woolrich novel) and Bernard Herrmann score. Approx. 105 min. 35mm.
3:10, 7:30

 

“A MARRIAGE OF THE FRENCH NEW WAVE AND HOLLYWOOD TRADITION. Best of all, the ending is totally unexpected and totally satisfying. Miss Moreau remains one of the screen's great actresses, and there is a supporting cast of unusual quality.” 
– Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

 “AN EXERCISE DE STYLE, AND A GOOD ONE AT THAT.” 
– Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
