Angelika After Hours: THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991)

Director Jonathan Demme’s smart, taut thriller teeters on the edge between psychological study and all-out horror. In this multiple Oscar-winning thriller, Jodie Foster stars as Clarice Starling, a top student at the FBI’s training academy. In her investigation of a vicious murderer nicknamed Buffalo Bill, she interviews Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins, in a chilling, Oscar-winning performance), a brilliant psychiatrist who is also a violent psychopath serving life in prison for various acts of murder and cannibalism. Lecter does indeed know something of Buffalo Bill, but his information comes with a price.

Two nights only! Join us Friday 8/28 & Saturday 8/29 @ 11:45PM for THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS back on the big screen.

Cult favorites return to the big screen every month, exclusively at the Angelika at Mosaic. Tickets are just $7, on sale now at angelikafilmcenter.com.

THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL – Interview with Bel Powley & Marielle Heller

Bel Powley and filmmaker Marielle Heller stopped by our Texas locations in support of their new film THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL!

Blending live action with animation, filmmaker Marielle Heller’s funny and provocative adaptation of Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel is a nuanced tale of burgeoning sexuality and boundary testing. Like most teenage girls, Minnie is longing for love, acceptance, and a sense of purpose in the world. She begins a complex love affair with her mother’s (Kristen Wiig, THE SKELETON TWINS) boyfriend Monroe (Alexander Skarsgård, MELANCHOLIA) and takes command of her sexuality and creativity. Set in countercultural San Francisco, this intelligent feature debut was one of the breakout hits from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

In our interview, Gadi Elkon of seligfilmnews.com chats with Bel and Marielle about the intimate sex scenes in the film, the power of a young woman owning her sexuality, the family involvement from Heller’s real family, and the fact that the film is shot in San Francisco.

 

THE DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL is now playing at the Angelika Mosaic, Dallas, and Plano.

Angelika After Hours: CARRIE (1976)

One of the teen horror genre’s true classics, filmmaker Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation of Stephen King’s first novel is a horrifying look at supernatural powers, high school cruelty, and teen angst. Sissy Spacek stars as a shy teenager who is the butt of practical jokes at her small-town high school. After her class mates taunt her about her horrified reaction to her totally unexpected first period, one of them takes pity on her and gets the class hunk to invite Carrie to the senior prom. Meanwhile, Carrie’s biggest bully is not as forgiving, and plans a trick to embarrass her in front of the whole school.

Two nights only! Join us Friday 7/31 & Saturday 8/1 @ 11:45PM for the original CARRIE back on the big screen.

KIDS – 20th Anniversary screenings / presented on 35mm film

One of the most controversial movies of the 1990s, KIDS returns to the Angelika Film Center 20 years after its premiere for two exclusive screenings presented in 35mm. In the early 1990’s, on the cusp of NYC’s mass gentrification, a group of disparate youths ventured outside their broken homes and cultivated a new style of skateboarding inspired by the city’s hardscrabble streets. Together, they found family and spawned a revolution. Scripted by Harmony Korine, this landmark film features breakout performances by Chloë Sevigny and Rosario Dawson. Larry Clark’s startlingly raw, vérité portrait of urban adolescence was hailed by The New York Times as “a wake-up call to the world.”

BLACK SEA – Interview with Kevin Macdonald

Adam Conway with the Angelika Blog sits down with Oscar winning Director Kevin Macdonald to talk about his new film BLACK SEA. Check out our exclusive interview for insight in the genesis of the film and the writing process, as well the phenomenal casting that includes Jude Law and Dallas native Scoot McNairy.

 

ABOUT THE FILM:
Academy Award nominee Jude Law captains the cast of BLACK SEA, a suspenseful adventure thriller directed by Oscar winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald (THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND). Also starring Scoot McNairy (ARGO) and Ben Mendelsohn (ANIMAL KINGDOM), the film centers on a rogue submarine captain who pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea. As greed and desperation take control on board their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival.

 

BLACK SEA is now playing at the Angelika Dallas.

2/5 – BRAVEHEART (1996 Best Picture winner)
Mel Gibson’s richly detailed saga is a tale of fierce combat, tender love, and the will to risk it all for freedom. In an emotionally charged performance, Gibson stars as William Wallace, a bold Scotsman who uses the steel of his sword and the fire of his intellect to rally his countrymen to liberation from the English occupation of Scotland. Mel Gibson came into his own as a director with BRAVEHEART, winning Academy Awards for both Best Director and Best Picture.

 

2/12 – AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (1952 Best Picture winner)
Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron sing and dance to the music of the Gershwins in this winner of 6 Academy Awards. When an ex-GI remains in Paris to pursue life as an artist, he is discovered by a wealthy patroness interested in more than his art. But Mulligan falls in love with a French shop girl who is engaged to his best friend. Highlights include Georges Guetary’s rendition of “Stairway to Paradise”; Oscar Levant’s fantasy of performing Gershwin’s “Concerto in F”; and the closing “American in Paris” ballet, in which Kelly and Caron dance before lavish backgrounds based on the works of famed French artists.

2/19 – THE GODFATHER (1973 Best Picture winner)
One of the best American films ever made, Francis Ford Coppola’s multi-generational crime saga is a touchstone of cinema: one of the most widely imitated, quoted, and lampooned movies of all time. Marlon Brando and Al Pacino star as Vito Corleone, head of a Mafia family in 1940s New York, and his youngest son Michael. The stellar cast also includes Robert Duvall, Abe Vigoda, James Caan, Diane Keaton, and Talia Shire. Adapted by Mario Puzo from his own acclaimed novel, THE GODFATHER was nominated for 11 Academy Awards and won for Best Picture, Best Actor (Marlon Brando), and Best Adapted Screenplay.

2/26 – GONE WITH THE WIND (1940 Best Picture winner)
Revisit Margaret Mitchell’s epic American classic, winner of 10 Academy Awards! On the eve of the American Civil War, beautiful and self-centered Scarlett O’Hara has everything she could want – except the handsome Ashley Wilkes. As war devastates the South, Scarlet finds a tenacity that carries her through all obstacles while still in pursuit of the man that got away. Sparks fly as the wily Rhett Butler comes in and out of her life. Only after Rhett walks out on her does Scarlett realize what she has lost. Starring Oscar winners Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Olivia de Havilland, Thomas Mitchell, and Oscar nominee Leslie Howard.
