Truly Cult Classic Thursday

The classic American Western and avant-garde European cinema collide with Zen Buddhism and the Bible as master gunfighter and cosmic mystic El Topo (writer/director Alejandro Jodorowsky) tries to defeat four sinister, sharp-shooting rivals on an ever-increasingly bizarre path to allegorical self-enlightenment and surreal resurrection. Packed with philosophy, religion, startling violence, B-movie references, phallic symbols, odd characters and outrageously strange imagery, El Topo is the landmark cult film that began the whole Midnight Movie phenomenon of the counterculture crazy 1970s – the most talked about, most shocking and most controversial quasi-Western head trip ever made. From the visionary director of The Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre. 

Written and Directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky, Mexico 1971 in Spanish with English subtitles.

“The film is by turns comic and profound, hysterical and pompous, fully complex enough to deserve more than a simple yea or nay. ” -Jay Cocks, Time

“A mind-blowing, gloriously wild, over-the-top tale that puts the ‘gory’ into allegory.” – Phillip French, Observer

Don’t miss Alejandro Jodorowsky’s new film, The Dance of Reality, showing at the Bear Tooth on August 4th

Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of a cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout (Alan Arkin,Argo) he discovers Dinesh (Madhur Mittal, Slumdog Millionaire) and Rinku (Suraj Sharma, Life of Pi), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea how to play baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India—the boys, who have never left their rural villages—are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball—JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell, In a World)—learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family. Also starring Bill Paxton,Million Dollar Arm is directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl).

Big Men

A good movie gives you a ticket to a secret world and Big Men delivers again and again, taking you into rooms you have no business entering. You’ll eavesdrop on meetings about oil deals worth billions of dollars and watch heavily armed militants preparing to strike. It’s a fast-paced tour through the high-powered world of African oil deals – a quest for money and power and influence that affects us all.

“Rachel Boynton’s gripping doc shows you what happens when the greed of oil companies meets the chaos of postcolonial Africa. In 2007 an oil field is discovered in Ghana, and the Dallas-based Kosmos Energy cuts a deal that initially gives Kosmos most of the profits. But in the end, who should (and will) lay claim to those billions of dollars? A U.S. company? The leaders of Ghana? The citizens? This moral-economic drama plays out in backroom deals that Boynton records in all their stunning and at times shameless candor. A-” —Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“PICK OF THE WEEK! If you want to know how the world works, as opposed to how we are told it works – or how we wish it might work – you need to see “Big Men,” a remarkable new investigative documentary about oil, money, Africa and America that comes with Brad Pitt’s name attached as executive producer but was directed by Rachel Boynton.” -Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com (read the full review here)

CRITICS PICK!   Dropping us into a perfect storm of avarice, this cool and incisive snapshot of global capitalism at work is as remarkable for its access as for its refusal to judge.” -Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times (Read the full review here)

The Dance of Reality

Dance of Reality

The Dance of Reality is the first film in 23 years made by writer/director Alejandro Jodorowsky, a genuine superstar of the international artistic counter-culture, best known for his cult classics El TopoThe Holy Mountain and Santa Sangre. His eagerly-awaited new film is a sensational, outrageous, surreal, hyper-imaginative magical realist dream autobiography of his difficult childhood growing up in a family of Ukrainian-Jewish immigrants in a small coastal town in Chile (Tocopilla, where the film was shot). His father (played by Jodorowsky’s son Brontis) is harsh and dominating, an idealistic communist who attempts to assassinate a plutocratic general; his big-bosomed, over-protective mother (Pamela Flores), sings all her lines opera-style, often nude. Jodorowsky himself appears as a spirit guide to his youthful self (Jeremias Herskovits). Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology and poetry, The Dance of Reality reflects Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a “dance” created by our own imaginations. An unforgettable and unique film.

Bioggraphical fantasy drama from Chile and France in Spanish with English subtitles.

“The result will no doubt polarize viewers, as has been the case with his other major works, but it will certainly go down amongst those who see it as one of the most unforgettable films of this or any other year in recent memory.”-Peter Sobczynski, RogerEbert.com  (read the full review here)
