45 YEARS (2015) - Criterion Collection


JUMP BACK TO TOP

Product Description: In this exquisitely calibrated film by Andrew Haigh (Weekend), Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter) and Tom Courtenay (Billy Liar) perform a subtly off-kilter pas de deux as Kate and Geoff, an English couple who, on the eve of an anniversary celebration, find their long marriage shaken by the arrival of a letter to Geoff that unceremoniously collapses his past into their shared present. Haigh carries the tradition of British realist cinema to artful new heights in 45 Years, weaving the momentous into the mundane as the pair go about their daily lives, while the evocatively flat, wintry Norfolk landscape frames their struggle to maintain an increasingly untenable status quo. Loosely adapting a short story by David Constantine, Haigh shifts the focus from the slightly erratic Geoff to Kate, eliciting a remarkable, nuanced portrayal by Rampling of a woman’s gradual metamorphosis from unflappable wife to woman undone.

NOTFILM (2015)


JUMP BACK TO TOP

Product Description: NOTFILM is Ross Lipman's acclaimed kino-essay on the making and meaning of FILM by Samuel Beckett. Unlike any other film for its in-depth, mesmerizing analysis of one short film, it has been acclaimed by critics and audiences everywhere. Lipman s obsession with FILM began when, as a teenaged cinephile, he first learned that Irish Nobel Prize-winning playwright Samuel Beckett had written a short that starred silent film genius Buster Keaton. Decades later, Lipman, now an accomplished film restorationist, jumped at the chance to preserve Film and to meet and talk with the extraordinary man who produced it, maverick publisher and First Amendment champion Barney Rosset. During a visit to Rosset s NYC loft, Lipman asked if there was any extra footage from the 1964 shoot. The reels that he discovered under the sink in the publisher s kitchen started Lipman on the long road from Film to Notfilm. For more than seven years he traveled the world interviewing friends, family, and collaborators including Beckett s biographer James Knowlson, film historian Kevin Brownlow, actress Billie Whitelaw, Keaton s friend (and actor in Film) James Karen, and writer Leonard Maltin who visited the set as a star-struck 14-year-old Buster fan. Lipman s long fascination and tireless efforts have resulted in Notfilm, a film exploration that is mesmerizing, entertaining and timeless.

Astaire plays an Irish rogue who plants a stolen crock of leprechaun gold in the soil near Fort Knox to reap what he thinks will be a rich harvest. In tow are his spirited daughter (Petula Clark), a love-struck leprechaun (Tommy Steele) and a bigoted Southern senator (Keenan Wynn) transformed by misbegotten magic. The treasurable Burton Lane/E.Y. Harburg score includes “How Are Things in Glocca Morra?,” “Look to the Rainbow,” “If This Isn’t Love” and “Old Devil Moon.” Watching it, you’ll be in clover.

FILM (1965)


JUMP BACK TO TOP

Product Description: FILM by Samuel Beckett, the great playwright s only venture into the medium of the cinema, was written in 1963 and filmed in New York City in the summer of 1964. The project brought together an illustrious group of collaborators: screenwriter (and future Nobel laureate) Beckett traveled from Paris at the behest of the producer, publisher, and First Amendment champion Barney Rosset joining forces with theater director Alan Schneider, Oscar®-winning cinematographer Boris Kaufman, and silent-comedy genius, Buster Keaton. Acclaimed film editor Sidney Meyers added his talents to the film in post-production. The product of their efforts, Film by Samuel Beckett, has no dialogue and takes as its basis philosopher George Berkeley s theory Esse est percipi to be is to be perceived. In essence, after all outside perception be it animal, human, or divine is suppressed, self-perception remains. Film by Samuel Beckett premiered at the 1965 New York Film Festival and went on to win many international awards. Critics, literary scholars, and audiences have continued to be dazzled and intrigued by the film. Mark Nixon of the Beckett International Foundation calls Film by Samuel Beckett an intriguing and vital document in Samuel Beckett s life-long engagement and fascination with perception, and the image. Restorationist Ross Lipman worked with Rosset to preserve and digitize FILM by Samuel Beckett on behalf of the UCLA Film & Television Archive and was inspired to make a documentary NOTFILM (2015), exploring the creation and meaning of this fascinating cinema treasure.

The great Richard Fleischer (The Vikings) directed this riveting true story about the notorious 1924 Leopold/Loeb murder case. Hollywood Icon Orson Welles (The Third Man, Touch of Evil) stars as the brilliant Clarence Darrow whose history-making defense against capitol punishment saved two Chicago teenagers from a death sentence. Though names were changed, this factual and fascinating character study focuses on the two boys - one bossy and intimidating (Bradford Dillman, The Mephisto Waltz), the other sensitive and introverted (Dean Stockwell, Married to the Mob) - who thought their superior intellect would enable them to pull off "the perfect crime. This tense, intelligent re-enactment of what was seen as the crime of the century, co-stars Diane Varsi (Peyton Place), E.G. Marshall (12 Angry Men), Martin Milner (TV s Adam-12 and Route 66), Gavin MacLeod (TV s The Love Boat and The Mary Tyler Moore Show) and Richard Anderson (TV s The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman).
