January 29, 2016

Awards season is one of the most exciting times of the year at the Angelika! This month we’re kicking off a new season of Movies Off the Wall by re-visiting our top Oscar Snubs, some of the highest grossing films of all time that didn’t win Best Picture:

CLEOPATRA – February 8
A sprawling, spectacular love story starring Elizabeth Taylor, CLEOPATRA depicts her manipulation of Julius Caesar and Marc Antony in her ill-fated attempt to save the Egyptian empire. This threesome in one of the most famous and gloriously powerful love triangles ever to be captured on film.

Omar Sharif and Julie Christie in the film Doctor Zhivago

DOCTOR ZHIVAGO – February 15
During the Russian Revolution, Yuri Zhivago (Omar Sharif), is a young doctor who has been raised by his aunt and uncle following his father’s suicide. Yuri falls in love with beautiful Lara Guishar (Julie Christie), who has been having an affair with her mother’s lover, Victor Komarovsky (Rod Steiger), an unscrupulous businessman. Yuri, however, ends up marrying his cousin, Tonya (Geraldine Chaplin). But when he and Lara meet again years later, the spark of love reignites.

JAWS – February 22
Based on Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 shark saga set the standard for summer blockbusters while frightening millions of moviegoers out of the water. After shark attacks ravage a resort beach town, the Mayor orders the local fishermen to catch the culprit. Satisfied with the shark they find, the greedy Mayor reopens the beaches, despite the warning from a visiting ichthyologist (Richard Dreyfuss) that the attacks were probably caused by a far more formidable Great White. One more fatality later, the scientist and police chief (Roy Scheider) join forces with the only local fisherman willing to take on a Great White.

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK – February 29
Featuring bravura set pieces, sly humor, and white–knuckle action, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK is one of the most consummately entertaining adventure pictures of all time. The inimitable Harrison Ford stars as archeologist and adventurer Indianan Jones, on a mission to defeat his enemy Renne Belloq, face down a pit of snakes, and find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis do. A joint project from Hollywood prodigies Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK took home four Oscars in 1982, including Best Visual Effects, but missed out on the Best Picture prize.

 

These Oscar Snubs return to the big screen exclusively at the Angelika Carmel Mountain, Mondays in February @ 7PM. Tickets just $10!

Mark your calendars now – Movies Off the Wall returns in March with monthly screening events, exclusively at the Angelika Carmel Mountain.

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

August 21, 2015

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.

Director Ridley Scott’s follow-up to his 1979 hit ALIEN, BLADE RUNNER is one of the most popular and influential science-fiction films of all time – and it has become an enduring cult classic favorite. Inspired by Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the film depicts a dystopian future in which genetically engineered, dangerous replicants are hunted down by special police operatives. Although the enthralling film was originally a box-office failure, it was nominated for two Academy Awards in 1983, Best Art Direction-Set Decoration and Best Visual Effects.

FOXCATCHER – Interview with Bennett Miller

November 25, 2014

Friend of the Angelika Blog Mark Walters recently sat down with director Bennett Miller (MONEYBALL, CAPOTE) to discuss his electrifying new film FOXCATCHER, starring Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum. Check out the interview below for insight into the casting the film, the extensive makeup for Carell’s dramatic transformation, and how the actor never broke character while filming on set.

 

ABOUT THE FILM:
A searing true-life account of three men grappling with the American Dream. FOXCATCHER tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont and Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz. The wrestler seizes an opportunity to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at du Pont’s lavish country estate, but du Pont’s mercurial personality and psychological gameplay begins to weigh heavily on Mark’s shaky self-esteem, undermining his abilities on the mat.

 

FOXCATCHER opens Wednesday 11/26 at the Angelika Dallas. Also playing at the Angelika at Mosaic.

THE IMITATION GAME – Exclusive Clip!

Benedict Cumberbatch and Oscar winner Keira Knightly  star in the thrilling true story of Alan Turing, the genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist, and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII.

In this exclusive clip, featuring Matthew Goode and Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech, the team of codebreakers are in a race against time to decode the Germans’ wartime communications using a captured Enigma machine — but the encryption cypher is reprogrammed by the Germans every 24 hours.

 

THE IMITATION GAME opens 11/28 exclusively at the Angelika New York and the Paris Theatre (NYC), 12/12 at the Angelika at Mosaic, and 12/25 at the Angelika Plano.

THE GREAT INVISIBLE

October 27, 2014

In this thought-provoking documentary which impressed audiences and won the Grand Jury Prize at the SXSW Film Festival, Peabody Award winning documentarian Margaret Brown (THE ORDER OF MYTHS) explores the fallout of the explosion of Deepwater Horizon, a state-of-the-art offshore drilling rig operated by BP in the Gulf of Mexico. Interweaving personal stories with insight from industry insiders and news footage of the disaster and its aftermath, Brown creates an intimate and emotional look at the many people still haunted by the explosion long after the story has faded from the front page.

[CLOSED] Angelika NYC: Enter to win a Mark Landis forgery + ART and CRAFT QandAs

September 19, 2014

Oscilloscope Laboratories is giving away a forgery by famed forger and documentary subject Mark Landis. Sign up at the theater opening weekend Friday 9/19 – Sunday 9/21 for a chance to win!

Don’t miss our exclusive Q&As with the filmmakers & Landis himself throughout the weekend:
Friday 9/19 @ 7:10PM – directors Jennifer Grausman & Sam Cullman, co-director Mark Becker, and subject Mark Landis in attendance
Saturday 9/20 @ 7:10PM – Jennifer Grausman, Mark Becker, and Mark Landis in attendance
Sunday 9/21 @ 7:10PM – Jennifer Grausman, Sam Cullman, and Mark Becker in attendance

 

About the film:
Oscar nominee Sam Cullman delivers a delicately balanced documentary with ART AND CRAFT, a look at one of the most prolific art forgers in America. After decades of conning the art industry with an impressive body of work in a wide range of styles – most of which was then donated to institutions across the United State – Mark Landis is exposed by a tenacious registrar from Cincinnati. Amid questions of motive, diagnosed schizophrenia, and a chorus of museum professionals clamoring for him to stop, this cat-and-mouse caper emerges an intimate story of obsession and the universal need for community, appreciation, and purpose.

 

ART & CRAFT is now playing at the Angelika New York.
