James Toback In Person!


The Outsider
& Film Retrospective!

The Outsider, a feature-length documentary from first-time writer/director Nicholas Jarecki, is a film about film, specifically, the power of film to create, to move, and to endure. It follows one of America’s most obsessive and intriguing filmmakers, James Toback, writer/director of 11 movies including: Two Girls and a Guy, Black and White, The Gambler, Fingers, Bugsy, and the upcoming When Will I Be Loved, starring Neve Campbell. Filmed over an 8-month period, The Outsider follows Toback through all phases of the making of his new film (shooting, editing, scoring, and release). The movie develops through frank conversations with him about his obsessions (gambling, drinking, drugs, and sexual exploration) and how they manifest themselves in his films by interweaving clips from all of his movies. The film also contains candid, revealing conversations about film and life with Toback’s collaborators including: Woody Allen, Robert Downey, Jr., Mike Tyson, Harvey Keitel, Neve Campbell, Norman Mailer, Brooke Shields, Barry Levinson, Jim Brown, Robert Towne, Brett Ratner, Roger Ebert, Bridget Hall, Damon Dash, Woody Harrelson, Bijou Phillips, Jeff Berg, Dominic Chianese, and Power from Wu-Tang Clan. The result is a surprising and highly entertaining examination of an industry that is changing and a man struggling against great odds to define a place within it. George Bernard Shaw observed: “The reasonable man adapts himself to fit the world around him. The unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to fit himself. Therefore all progress is made by unreasonable men.” James Toback is an unreasonable man; as film lovers, we’re much the better for it.

Crossing Arizona

A hit at this year's Sundance Film Festival, CROSSING ARIZONA is an up-to-the-moment look at the hotly debated issues of illegal immigration and border security on the U.S./Mexico border. Heightened security along the Texas and California borders funnels an estimated 4,500 illegal migrants, most traveling on foot, into remote sectors of the Arizona desert on a daily basis. The perilous journey, which can take up to four days, has led to the deaths of thousands of migrants. The influx of migrants and rising death toll has elicited impassioned responses and complicated feelings about human rights, culture, class and national security. Through the eyes of frustrated ranchers, local activists, desperate migrants, and the Minutemen who've become darlings of the national media, CROSSING ARIZONA reveals the surprising political stances people take when immigration and border policy fails everyone. Directed by Joseph Mathew & Dan DeVivo For more info, check out crossingaz.com. Color. US. Running time: 96 mins. In English and Spanish with English and Spanish subtitles. Filmmakers IN PERSON after the 7:00 & 9:00 shows, Fri & Sat!. Showtimes: Nightly at 7:00 & 9:00. Additional Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday matinees at (2:30) and 4:45.

Sir! No Sir!

"Decades may have passed, but the recollections of many soldiers who refused to fight in the Vietnam War are still vivid in the powerful and eye-opening documentary. Director David Zeiger's film features urgent rock music and uses an impressive amount of archival footage to show just how widespread the GI movement was. The voices of the veterans alone, however, make this an important and poignant film that can speak to any generation." - M. McMurtrie, SF Chronicle. Directed by David Zeiger. US. 2005.

adam & steve

Inhabiting a post 9/11 New York, Adam & Steve follows the romantic trajectory of two people struggling to make love work in spite of overwhelming odds. Having met in the 80's after a disastrous one night stand, Adam (Craig Chester) & Steve (Malcolm Gets) don't recognize each other when they meet again fifteen years later. With the help of their best friends, formerly obese stand up comic Rhonda (Parker Posey), and straight guy ladies man Michael (Chris Kattan), our protagonists fall in love only to realize, a year into their relationship, that they met before and unwittingly changed the course of each other's lives that fatefull night in the 80's. Now the question is: can they accept this and incorporate it into their current understanding of each other? Or more importantly, can they hold hands on the street without being beaten up? Directed by Craig Chester With: Craig Chester, Malcolm Gets, Parker Posey, Chris Kattan, Julie Hagerty, Melinda Dillon. 2005. Runningtime 99 minutes. Showtimes: Nightly at 8:40.

American Gun

AMERICAN GUN is a powerful series of interwoven storylines that bring to light how the proliferation of guns in America dramatically affect and shape the every day lives of its citizens. The film opens at the start of another day in a Virginia gun store, where owner Carl (Donald Sutherland), continues to sidestep controversy while running the shop he loves. His newest employee is his granddaughter Mary Ann (Linda Cardellini), a college student pressured to spend a semester in the family business. Despite her misgivings, curiosity overcomes her as she is slowly seduced by the weapons she sells. Across the country in Oregon, Janet (Marcia Gay Harden) is suffering through a television interview marking the third anniversary of her older son’s high school shooting rampage and suicide. As a single mother, she worries for her younger son David (Christopher Marquette) who is now the same age his brother was when he committed the terrible acts. While dealing with his own rage and grief, David quietly falls for Tally (Nikki Reed), the new girl in town. Meanwhile, Frank, a middle-aged deputy, watches the interview intently; still haunted by vicious accusations that he could have prevented the tragedy. On Chicago's gritty west side, principal Carl (Forest Whitaker) struggles to keep his violent inner-city high school from self destructing. His wife Sara (Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon) desperately fears for the safety of their young son. When ace student Jay (Arlen Escarpeta) is caught hiding a handgun, both principal and student find themselves facing decisions they never wanted to make. Directed by Aric Avelino.

Game 6

As a New York playwright, Nicky Rogan (Michael Keaton) made his name in boulevard comedy, and now has ventured closer to home and written something he really cares about. Though he won’t admit it, he is desperate for another success. From the outset, things begin to go wrong. His daughter informs him that his wife wants a divorce. His mistress notifies him that his lead actor has a parasite in his brain and can’t remember his lines, and an old acquaintance regales him with tales of Steven Schwimmer, a new and powerful critic who is so poisonous, so destructive, that the New York theater community lives in terror. Although Nicky has grown up and lived his entire life in New York, he is a die-hard Red Sox fan and the film is set on October 25, 1986, the day of the most Shakespearian of sporting events, “Game 6” of the 1986 World Series. The Red Sox are poised to win. At the last minute, Nicky decides to skip his opening night in order to watch his beloved team. This could be it. If his “cursed” Red Sox can finally win the World Series, maybe Nicky can break his own downward spiral. Written by acclaimed writer Don DeLillo, “Game 6” is an intelligent, witty, unsettling tale of one man’s encounter with his demons, his passions and his infatuation with failure. Official Website. Directed by Michael Hoffman. Screenplay by Don Delillo With Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Ari Graynor, Bebe Neuwirth, Griffin Dunne & Catherine O’Hara. MPAA: Rated R. USA Runtime: 87 min. Showtimes: Nightly at 7:00 & 8:45. Additional Saturday, Sunday & Wednesday matinees at (2:00) & 4:30

The clever screenplay by Don Delillo really surprises
in a refreshing way. -- Leba Hertz, SF Chronicle.
