  • That Man from Rio (L’homme de Rio)

    August - That Man from Rio (L’homme de Rio)

    While on leave, Army Private Adrien Duforquet witnesses the kidnapping of his fiancé Agnès, the daughter of a famous archeologist. He sets off to rescue her, which takes him to Brazil – between Rio and Brasilia- following behind a Brazilian statuette stolen from the Musée de L’Homme in Paris. “Call it a comedy thriller or a tongue-in-cheek travesty on all the archeological mystery-adventure movies and all the "chase" films that have ever been made. Virtually every complication, every crisis involving imminent peril, that has ever been pulled in the movies, especially the old silent ones, is pulled in this. And they are pulled in such rapid continuity and so expansively played, with such elan and aganst such brilliant backgrounds, that they take your breath away.” - Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

  • Duran Duran: Unstaged

    September - Duran Duran: Unstaged

    The iconic British rock band Duran Duran will take over US movie theaters for a one-night-only showing of the film Duran Duran: Unstaged. The film is directed by award-winning filmmaker David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive) as part of the American Express Unstaged, an innovative music series that selects some of today’s most influential filmmakers to direct live stream performances of some of music’s most breakthrough artists playing at landmark venues around the world. "David is a visionary artist, his work is always surprising and beautifully strange - so it was a surreal dream collaboration for us to work with him and to become the subjects of one of his films. When we first discussed the notion of working together, we bonded over a shared desire to create a truly unique live film. I felt confident we could rely upon David to conjure up something stylish, experimental, handmade and innovative. He surpassed all of our wildest expectations." – Duran Duran’s keyboardist Nick Rhod
