Here’s To The Ones Who Dream:

The Golden Globes presented itself with a common theme this year. That theme was to never give up on a dream.

Emma Stone said it best, moments after claiming the title for Best Actress- Musical or Comedy. “This is a film for dreamers. I think hope and creativity are two of the most important things in the world. That’s what this film is about (referring to Best Picture- Musical or Comedy, LA LA LAND).” Stone addressed the struggle for creative people to achieve their dreams and shared her award with anybody anywhere that feels like giving up sometimes but finds it in themselves to get up and keep going.

LA LA LAND is Now Playing at Angelika Carmel, Angelika Mosaic & Angelika Dallas.

Isabelle Huppert won Best Actress in a Foreign Language film, ELLE.  She remarked, “Thank you for making me win in a French film directed by a Dutch director here in America.” Not many people can say that — sometimes, through the shared experience of cinema, even the most unlikely of dreams really do come true.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson kept us up all night in the film NOCTURNAL ANIMALS and his sinister performance won him Best Supporting Actor. His dream was our nightmare in this gritty thriller. Johnson said it simply upon receiving his award: “Tom Ford, Thank you for this amazing opportunity.”

Viola Davis touched on the unlikelihood of a film like FENCES when she said, “It’s not every day that Hollywood thinks of translating a play to screen. It doesn’t scream money maker, but it does scream art, it does scream heart.” Good thing Hollywood followed its heart on this one.

The 74th Annual Golden Globes ended with a stroll under the MOONLIGHT. Winning Best Motion Picture-Drama, it left the cast, crew and creators gleaming with pride. “As someone who went eight years without making a piece, I gotta give love to these people right here,” director Barry Jenkins said. If that doesn’t show persistence in a dream, I don’t know what does!

MOONLIGHT is Now Playing at Angelika NYC. Keep an eye out for its return to various Angelika Film Center locations just in time for Oscar Season. In the meantime, check out this Q & A with director Barry Jenkins!

Hayao Miyazaki Comes Out of Retirement (Again)

December 11, 2016

Good news Studio Ghibli fans! Three years after announcing his retirement, Miyazaki-san has announced that he is coming back for “one last film.”  According to Anime News Network (ANN), the legendary anime filmmaker is set to direct BORO THE CATERPILLAR, a film that has reportedly been in development-hell for the past twenty years.  Miyazaki broke the news himself during a Japanese TV special about him, claiming that a short version of the film made for the Ghibli Museum left him dissatisfied.  As many fans know, this is not the first time the acclaimed director has come back for “one last film.”  In fact, he has been in and out of retirement since his film PRINCESS MONONOKE (1998), and has since taken the world by storm.  With his new shift towards manga illustration, is this truly Miyazaki-san’s last film as he claims?  BORO THE CATERPILLAR is anticipated to be completed sometime in 2019.

In the meantime, be sure to check out another Miyazaki film, OCEAN WAVES, opening January 17. The film has been remastered in 4K and we’ll be presenting the US premiere along with the North American premiere of a never before seen short film called GHIBLIES EPISODE 2.

Tickets for OCEAN WAVES are on sale now at Angelika Pop-Up, Angelika Film Center Dallas, Angelika Film Center Plano, Angelika Film Center Carmel Mountain, Angelika Film Center Mosaic.

Real Drama Kings

November 29, 2016

We are hoping you survived the in-laws and the  madness that was Black Friday, but the drama isn’t over. Shia LaBeouf, Casey Affleck and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds really bring it in this week’s watch list that is full of tear jerkers. Affleck’s performance in MANCHESTER BY THE SEA is garnering some award-worthy buzz, LaBeouf delivers an equally authentic must-see performance in MAN DOWN, while musician Nick Cave bares his soul for audiences in the one-night-only encore screening of ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING.  Grab your tickets and some tissues and prepare to be get in touch with your vulnerable side. But first, check out the trailers!

MAN DOWN

LOCATIONS: Angelika Pop-Up

GENRE: Drama, Thriller

When U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer (Shia LaBeouf) returns home from his tour in Afghanistan, he finds that the place he once called home is no better than the battlefields he fought on overseas. Accompanied by his best friend (Jai Courtney), a hardnosed marine whose natural instinct is to shoot first and ask questions later, he searches desperately for the whereabouts of his estranged son (Charlie Shotwell) and wife (Kate Mara). In their search, the two intercept Charles (Clifton Collins Jr.), a man carrying vital information about the whereabouts of Gabriel’s family. As we revisit the past, the psychological thriller guides audiences in unraveling the puzzle of Gabriel’s experience and the whereabouts of his family.

ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING

LOCATIONS: Angelika Dallas, Angelika Mosaic, Angelika Carmel
ONE NIGHT ONLY! Thursday, December 1 @ 7PM

GENRE: Documentary, Music

ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING is the first opportunity anyone to hear Skeleton Tree, the sixteenth studio album from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. Originally a performance based concept, ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING evolved into something much more significant as Andrew Dominik (KILLING THEM SOFTLY) delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s narration and improvised rumination. Filmed in black-and-white and color, in both 3D and 2D, the result is fragile, raw and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.

MANCHESTER BY THE SEA

LOCATIONS: Angelika Carmel, Angelika NYC, Angelika Mosaic, Angelika Plano

GENRE: Drama

MANCHESTER BY THE SEA chronicles the solitary life of Boston janitor Lee (Casey Affleck), from award winning director Kenneth Lonergan (MARGARET). In their small Massachusetts fishing village, Lee’s world is shaken following the death of his older brother Joe (Kyle Chandler), when he is named sole guardian of his 16-year-old nephew Patrick (Lucas Hedges). He returns to Manchester to care for Patrick, and once there, is forced to deal with a past that separated him from his wife (Michelle Williams). The past and present are seamlessly woven together, crafting a tension-filled tale that deftly eschews sentimentality in favor of penetrating emotional insight and deeply affecting human relationships.

WIENER-DOG – Q&A with director Todd Solondz

June 29, 2016

Todd Solondz says there’s only two things he’s concerned about when making a film: 1) that he isn’t embarrassed by it, and 2) that he survives it. While he managed to check off the first thing during the production of WIENER-DOG, the second was a bit challenging.

Over the weekend, the director of HAPPINESS and WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE stopped by the Angelika Film Center to discuss his latest dark comedy. WIENER-DOG chronicles the life of a dachshund, after it is taken in by veterinary technician Dawn Wiener (Greta Gerwig), who sets off on a road trip. Along the way, the lovable dog encounters a young boy, a film professor, and a troubled grandmother and granddaughter, spreading comfort and joy to all.

While Solondz is very particular about the characters he selects for his films, the cute little furry WIENER-DOG star(s) proved to be a bit of a “nightmare” as he put it. However, Solondz’s challenges with the four legged actor(s) went unnoticed as he went on to design a film for theater, which is always the director’s main goal. During the Q&A Solondz discusses his past controversial work, the changing tide of the film industry, and being a film school dropout-turned-professor at NYU.

WIENER-DOG is now playing at the Angelika New York and opens this Friday 7/1 at Angelika Dallas, Angelika Plano, Angelika Carmel Mountain!
