(1963, Ingmar Bergman) A day in the life of rural pastor Gunnar Björnstrand, contending with his own loss of faith, from morning service, through his failure to comfort a suicidal Max von Sydow, to his anguished encounter with mistress Ingrid Thulin – highlighted by her minutes-long speech in tight close-up – to an evening High Mass. DCP. Approx. 81 min.

“Masterly even by Bergman’s own standards.”
– David Shipman

“A film of haunting beauty.”
– Kristin M. Jones, The Wall Street Journal

PLAY DIRTY

(1969, André De Toth) Civilian oil industry expert Michael Caine – already enlisted to supervise fuel supplies in WWII North Africa – is ordered to take command of Nigel Davenport’s raiding group, everyone a criminal, to blow up a behind-the-lines Nazi fuel dump. De Toth’s last film. 35mm. Approx. 118 min.

“Among [de Toth’s] best work. Tautly shot and edited, Play Dirty carries to a poetic extreme the betrayal theme that haunts de Toth's strongest films.”
