Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined—until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says, “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. This live-action family comedy also stars Nicole Kidman, Imelda Staunton, Michael Gambon, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi and Hugh Bonneville. From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (Harry Potter).

Anchorage Is… tells the story of Anchorage from its start as a “tent city” in 1915 to the modern town we call home today.    Producers John Larson and Todd Hardesty set out to capture the essence of who we are.   A city started by men and women who came to build a railroad and with perseverance and a bit of luck created the economic and transportation capital of Alaska.  The documentary includes the earliest known film footage of Anchorage as well as home movies from the 1920’s through the 1950’s.  There’s also dramatic film of the aftermath of the great Alaskan earthquake of 1964.  The film also showcases the modern Anchorage from the sled dog races along 4th Avenue to F22 “Raptors” roaring from JBER.  Anchorage Is… celebrates Anchorage and it’s colorful 100 years and is one of the Municipality of Anchorage’s Centennial legacy projects.  The showing will also include an introduction by Director Todd Hardesty which includes many historical photos of early Anchorage from 1915 to the 1930’s.

Director Todd Hardesty will introduce the film at each showing.

Fargo (1996)

Fargo

Click to enlarge

This deliriously dark and surprisingly moving hardboiled crime drama set against the snowy white landscape of a Minnesota winter is laced with all the flaky humor, local color and freakishly memorable characters that have become the Coen Brothers’ trademark, and here, for the first time, Oscar took notice, with the brothers winning an Academy Award for Best Screenplay and Frances McDormand winning Best Actress for he much-loved turn as Marge, the slow-talking, quick-thinking police chief up to her eyeballs in trouble. Hard-up used car dealer Jerry Lundegaard (a pitch-perfect William H. Macy) engineers the kidnapping of his own wife to ransom to his wealthy father-in-law/boss, but his hired goons, Carl Showalter (Steve Buscemi) and Gaear Grimsrud (Peter Stormare), botch the job, leading to a series of accidental mishaps and murders that spiral spectacularly out of control (you’ll never look at a wood chipper the same way again). Despite all the unforeseen curveballs, Jerry might just get away with his convoluted crime if not for the intrusion of the sharp-eyed, whip-smart and very pregnant police chief Marge, who is hot on the trail of the killers as she waddles through danger behind her enormous belly and her ever-escalating hunger for an all-you-can-eat buffet. Is this one of the Coen Brothers best films? “You betcha.”

After seeing “Fargo” stick around for “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter” (separate admission) about a jaded Japanese woman discovers a hidden copy of Fargo (1996) on VHS, believing it to be a treasure map indicating the location of a large case of money.

Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter

Kumiko

Click to enlarge

Kumiko lives in a cluttered, cramped apartment in Tokyo with her pet rabbit, Bunzo. She works as an office lady, robotically preparing tea and fetching dry cleaning for her nitpicky boss. But on her own time, she obsessively watches a weathered VHS copy of Fargo. Rewinding and fast-forwarding repeatedly, she meticulously maps out where a briefcase of castaway loot is buried within the film. After hours of intense research, Kumiko heads to the United States and into the harsh Minnesota winter to search for it.

Inspired by an urban legend about a Japanese woman who took a similar journey, filmmaker brothers David and Nathan Zellner tackle their most ambitious project to date. The Zellners’ love for lonely eccentrics remains intact, and Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim) gives a fascinating performance as the introspective, withdrawn Kumiko, whose increasing discomfort in the world leads her to retreat ever further into isolation. Shot with breathtaking precision, Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter soars to transcendence as it reveals the beauty in the quest for reality, even if that reality is just your own. Alexander Payne executive produced Kumiko, which won the US Special Jury Award (Dramatic) at this year’s Sundance Film Festival for the fantastic music score by The Octopus Project.

Directed by David Zellner, 2014, USA, in English and Japanese with subtitles

“One of the best films to ever premiere at Sundance.” – David Ehrlich, Film.com
