The Leopard

Luchino Visconti, 1963 205m

Finally, Visconti's masterpiece restored! Burt Lancaster (speaking Italian!) plays the aging Prince Don Fabrizio Salina. It is the nineteenth century, and the prince watches his power slowly decline following the unification of Italy. He realizes that in order to keep the power and status that he has left, he will have to overturn and overlook many of the rules his family has followed for generations. He allows his son to become a soldier and invites into his family the mysterious and seductive daughter of a local official, played by the unforgettable Claudia Cardinale. Throughout the film, we follow these characters as they try to find their place in a new Italian society. The final dance party at the end of the film, full of swishing skirts and waltzing couples, is one of the most beautiful scenes ever shot. In Italian with English subtitles. 35mm

GodFather part2にも出てくるけれど,シチリアってきれいだ... にしても,やっぱりイタリア語とスペイン語は近い。

Pierrot le Fou

Jean-Luc Godard 1965 110m

If you only see one Godard movie―or more specifically, if you only see one série noir with stolen cars, musical numbers, a cameo by Samuel Fuller, and more smart-ass painting and literature references than you can identify in ten viewings―see Pierrot le fou. Belmondo and Karina return as refugees from a repressive and stupid bourgeois society; they run about the country committing crimes and staging re-enactments of the Vietnam War. One of the most joyous pieces of cinema ever created. 35mm

Fallen Angels

Wong Kar-wai, 1995 96m

A companion film to Chungking Express that originated as a third story eventually dropped from that film, Fallen Angels is the darker of the two. Wong follows the nocturnal adventures of some sleazy young misfits: a lonely assassin, an eager shop clerk, and an amorous maid, among others. The most stylistically extreme of Wong's films to date, Fallen Angels is shot in over-saturated colors with a fish-eye lens. “One of the 10 best films of the decade” – Village Voice. In Cantonese with English subtitles. 35mm

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Garth Jennings, 2005 109m

Arthur Dent (played Martin Freeman of the hit British series The Office) is swept off the planet only moments before Earth is destructed to make way for a hyperspace express route. Thus begins his day and his adventures through the galaxy. Stephen Fry, Mos Def, Zooey Deschanel, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Bill Nighy, Sam Rockwell, and Alan Rickman begin to make up the stellar cast that guides him through a universe of aliens, androids, love, craziness, and the meaning of life. Don't panic! Even diehard Douglas Adams fans love it.
