The Humbling

The Humbling

  • Jan 26, 2015 until Jan 29, 2015
  • Showtime: 7pm

    Based on the best-selling Phillip Roth novel, The Humbling stars Al Pacino as Simon Axler, a washed up thesbian losing his grip on reality. After swan diving into the orchestral pit, Axler starts a romance with a young actress, Pegeen (Greta Gerwig) that seems to pull him out of depression. But perhaps this is just another part Axler is playing?

    As much about the heights of youth as the vertigo of old age, Academy Award winning director Barry Levinson (Rain Man) brings life into this sharp and witty script. While Pacino’s performance stands out as the charismatic but wounded hero, he is also supported by a great ensemble cast that includes Dianne Wiest, Charles Grodin, and Kyra Sedgwick, as well as Greta Gerwig, who brings a youthful exuberance to Pegeen, Axler’s ex-lesbian new lover. 

    “Maybe the best thing Al Pacino has done has done this century.” – Lou Lumenick, New York Post.

    Citizenfour

  • Jan 30, 2015 until Feb 01, 2015
  • Showtime: Fri, Sat 9pm - Sun 3pm

    Several years into a film on post 9/11 surveillance, Pulitzer Prize co-winner and journalist Laura Poitras began receiving cryptic messages from ‘citizenfour’. Flying to Hong Kong to meet, the mystery source turns out to be the famous whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Citizenfour is unique in cinema history:  a real-life political thriller documenting world-changing current events as they happen.

    Featuring a series of tense encounters between the award-winning journalist and the modern day Deep Throat, this film won best documentary at the Gotham Independent Film Awards, 2014, and has been short-listed for the Academy Awards.

    “Bold, unblinking filmmaking – no less than a living document of a global scandal straight from the whistleblower. Alarming and essential – anyone with a phone should see it.” – Simon Crook, Empire
