Cranky Hanke’s Weekly Reeler April 2-8: Captain America with Large Supporting Cast

FILM Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | 17 Comment(s)

Captain America: The Winter Soldier crashes, bursts and bludgeons his way into theaters this Friday (or Thursday night for the Truly Dedicated) and no mere mortal mainstream movies dare to challenge his might. Locally, however, no less than four art titles willing to stand up to the onslaught. They won’t defeat him, of course, but they’re willing to give his tights a tug.

Cranky Hanke’s Weekly Reeler March 26-April 1: Bad Noah Enemy Sabotage

FILM Ken Hanke | 03/25/2014 | 9 Comment(s)

Frankly, any week coming after The Grand Budapest Hotel is apt to taste like wax fruit, but we do have four movies opening this week — two mainstream, two art titles (sort of). At least one of the art titles I know to be good, even if it’s the kind of film for which the phrase “not for everyone” was coined. And how.

Cranky Hanke’s Weekly Reeler March 19-25: The Grand Budapest Hotel Is Open for Business

FILM Ken Hanke | 03/18/2014 | 22 Comment(s)

Like a harbinger of the end of a winter that seemed utterly disinclined to go away — and the typical dead-of-winter parade of dreary movies (at least the ones actually released this year) — Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel comes to town this week. It’s a joy. It’s a wonderment. It’s a delight. It’s a must-see. It’s a film I didn’t mind in the least getting up early Saturday morning to be at a 9 a.m. press screening at The Carolina to see. Oh, yeah, there’s some other stuff opening, too. I’ll get to those eventually.

Pick of the Week:

Noah (PG-13)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | 13 Comment(s)

Genre: Biblical Fantasy Epic
Directed by: Darren Aronofsky
Starring: Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins


The Story: Mystical, fantasized retelling of the Bible story of Noah’s Ark.
The Lowdown: It most certainly doesn’t all work, but Darren Aronofsky’s visionary take on the Bible story is still an amazing work — as much for its flaws as for its virtues. It may miss greatness, but it sure makes a valiant try for it.

Reviews:

Bad Words (R)

Justin Souther | 04/01/2014 | Comment here

Genre: Comedy
Directed by: Jason Bateman
Starring: Jason Bateman, Rohan Chand, Kathryn Hahn, Allison Janney, Philip Baker Hall


The Story: A foul-mouthed 40-something finds a loophole for entering a children’s spelling bee, which he plans on making a mockery of.
The Lowdown: An occasionally amusing, sometimes sweet comedy with solid direction that unfortunately does little to be memorable.

The Face of Love (PG-13)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | Comment here

Genre: Romantic Drama
Directed by: Arie Posin (The Chumscrubber)
Starring: Annette Bening, Ed Harris, Robin Williams, Jess Weixler, Amy Brenneman


The Story: A long-grieving widow falls in love with a man who looks exactly like her husband.
The Lowdown: A fairly ridiculous story with an uneven tone and improbable plot twists is turned into something far better than it has any right to be by the sensitive playing of stars Annette Bening and Ed Harris — with help from occasionally inspired filmmaking.

Nymphomaniac Vol. 1 (NR)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | Comment here

Genre: Drama with Dark Comedy
Directed by: Lars von Trier
Starring: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman


The Story: A self-proclaimed nymphomaniac tells her life story — assuming she’s not making it up — to a sympathetic listener who finds her lying unconscious in an alley.
The Lowdown: Yes, it’s as sexually explicit as you’ve probably heard, but I don’t think eroticism is what von Trier’s latest is about. Vol. 1 is more funny, touching and a lot more playfully creative than you likely expect.

Sabotage (R)

Justin Souther | 04/01/2014 | 6 Comment(s)

Genre: Action
Directed by: David Ayer (End of Watch)
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olivia Williams, Sam Worthington, Mireille Enos, Joe Manganiello


The Story: After stealing $10 million from a drug cartel, the members of an elite DEA task force start turning up dead.
The Lowdown: An idiotically plotted, unlikable, laborious action movie that’s both tasteless and boring.

Stranger by the Lake (NR)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | Comment here

Genre: Erotic Neo-Noir Thriller
Directed by: Alain Guiraudie
Starring: Pierre Deladonchamps, Christophe Paou, Patrick d'Assumçao, Jérôme Chappatte, Mathieu Vervisch


The Story: A young man at a gay cruising spot becomes obsessively involved with a man he knows is a murderer.
The Lowdown: A deliberately paced thriller of the neo-noir kind that effectively builds a steady sense of unease. However, viewers need to be aware that the film contains graphic gay sexual encounters.

Tim’s Vermeer (PG-13)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | Comment here

Genre: Documentary
Directed by: Teller
Starring: Tim Jenison, David Hockney, Colin Blakemore, Philip Steadman, Penn Jillette


The Story: Inventor Tim Jenison sets out to prove how Vermeer painted his pictures by duplicating his method.
The Lowdown: An interesting and often entertaining concept that at least suggests how Vermeer may have worked, but it ultimately confuses mechanics with artistic creation.

Special Showings

Capote (R)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | Comment here

Genre: Biographical Drama
Directed by: Bennett Miller (Moneyball)
Starring: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Clifton Collins Jr., Chris Cooper, Bruce Greenwood


In Brief: Philip Seymour Hoffman won an Oscar for his portrayal of Truman Capote in this biographical drama centered around Capote researching and writing In Cold Blood. It’s certainly a good performance, and it’s housed in a good, but never quite great, film. It is also a very chilly affair, and it’s much easier to admire than it is to actually like.

Dancing in Jaffa (NR)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | Comment here

Genre: Documentary
Directed by: Hilla Medalia
Starring: Pierre Dulaine, Yvonne Marceau, Alaa Bubali, Lois Dana, Noor Gabai, Rachel Gueta


In Brief: This year’s Asheville Jewish Film Festival runs four Thursdays in April (with matinees on following Fridays). The opening night film is the heartwarming documentary, Dancing in Jaffa. The film features professional ballroom dancer Pierre Dulaine pursuing his dream of returning to his native city of Jaffa to teach the both Jewish and Palestinian children ballroom dancing. It is his belief that dance might be the bridge to better relations and greater understanding. It is a surprisingly moving and involving film. Complete festival listing is available at ashevillejewishfilmfestival.com.

Hiroshima, Mon Amour (NR)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | Comment here

Genre: Drama
Directed by: Alain Resnais
Starring: Emmanuelle Riva, Eiji Okada, Stella Dallas, Pierre Barbaud, Bernard Fresson


In Brief: World Cinema kicks off its monthlong retrospective on the works of the late Alian Resnais with the film that not only started it all for Resnais but marked the beginning of the entire French New Wave, Hiroshima, Mon Amour (1959). On its simplest level, the film is about the affair between a French actress on location and a Japanese architect, played out against the background of Hiroshima. The film’s importance comes from the way it is presented more so than its story.

Shanghai Express (NR)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | 5 Comment(s)

Genre: Pulpish Romantic Drama
Directed by: Josef von Sternberg
Starring: Marlene Dietrich, Clive Brook, Warner Oland, Anna May Wong, Lawrence Grant, Gustav von Seyffertitz


In Brief: Possibly Josef von Sternberg’s greatest film — and certainly Marlene Dietrich’s most luminous one — Shanghai Express is a work that manages to transform what is basically a pulp adventure and trashy romance story into absolute cinematic gold. It ought to be a trifle, but it is instead a poetic, dreamlike, intensely moving drama about the nature of love and faith. I’d place in the top 10 or 15 movies ever made. Certainly, it’s one of the most beautiful.

Spider Baby, or the Maddest Story Ever Told (NR)

Ken Hanke | 04/01/2014 | Comment here

Genre: Horror
Directed by: Jack Hill (Foxy Brown)
Starring: Lon Chaney Jr., Carol Ohmart, Quinn K. Redeker, Beverly Washburn, Jill Banner, Sid Haig


In Brief: (Make-up showing of the one cancelled by snow.) Despite its full title, Spider Baby probably isn’t the maddest story ever told, but it’s in the running — at least as schlock exploitation film is concerned. Enjoyably trashy and occasionally downright amateurish, it’s the fairly silly story of a house full of folks suffering from some inexplicable form of mental degeneration that turns them into homicidal maniacs. They’re kept more or less in check by the old family retainer (Lon Chaney Jr. in a surprisingly touching performance) — at least till interlopers wanting the estate show up. You can kind of fill in the rest, but only kind of, since this is seriously demented.
