Touchez pas au grisbi

Film - Feature | August 10 | 7-8:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Becker’s mood of existential fatalism and world-weary toughness prefigures the countless heist films to come; from Jean-Pierre Melville to Jules Dassin and Jean-Luc Godard, Quentin Tarantino to John Woo, filmmakers may be inspired by Grisbi, but have still rarely matched it.

A Lesson in Love

Film - Feature | August 10 | 7:30-9 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Bergman’s version of a Cary Grant comedy of remarriage can’t approach screwball but is rather oddball, and not just in its elliptical flashback format. The amorous adventures of a gynecologist make a queasy premise for laughs so it is fitting that (as usual) the women carry the day.
