Our favorite title this week is Best Picture nominee ARRIVAL (@ BLU), a fantastic sci-fi film starring Amy Adams as a linguist recruited by the army to translate an alien language when a host of starships appear above Earth. The unusual flashback structure eventually gives way to something very surprising as the very nature of the visitor’s speech starts to change her perception of time and space. Bring Kleenex.
As for the rest, don’t forget to check out the following: Ang Lee’s latest is BILLY LYNN’S LONG HALFTIME WALK (BLU). The Heroes at the Criterion Collection have Ermanno Olmi’s late-neorealist masterpiece THE TREE OF WOODEN CLOGS (@ BLU). Two from Warner Archive: Robert Mitchum tearing up 70’s Tokyo in THE YAKUZA (@ BLU) and under-seen Billy Wilder gem LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON (@ BLU). 23 PACES TO BAKER STREET (@ BLU) has never before been on video. Raquel Welch is the ultimate cavewoman in ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. (@ BLU) A gorgeous new special edition of Andrzej Zulawski’s THE BLUE NOTE (@ BLU) from Mondo Vision. A Buster Keaton double feature, STEAMBOAT BILL JR. / COLLEGE (@ BLU). And being a teenager is harder than ever in EDGE OF SEVENTEEN (BLU).
