What neither can predict are the superpowers that Ulysses (the squirrel) will acquire after the accident. What...   More >

The Man Without a Past

Film - Feature | July 15 | 7-8:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Aki Kaurismäki has an unsentimental soft spot for the working class, albeit well hidden behind artfully sardonic realism. More than the memorably long-faced antiheroes of The Match Factory Girl and Drifting Clouds, the hero of this film—call him M—has reason to be deadpan: drifting into a strange city, he is set upon by thugs who leave him for dead and render him amnesiac.

When targeting surgically, accuracy is sine qua non. Achieving this
is difficult as inserting a needle displaces the tissue and moves the
target. Intraoperative imaging provides limited guidance. Moreover,
the coming generation of surgical robots has a precision finer than

A talented yet vain couturier runs roughshod over workers, friends, and lovers in Becker’s vividly realist drama on Parisian haute couture, which makes a fascinating companion piece to Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread and counts among its admirers none other than Jean-Paul Gaultier.

Prison

Bergman’s first major work, Prison makes a strong case for the proclamation that opens it: “Human life is an inferno.” Gunnar Fischer’s hard-edged expressionist cinematography is ideally suited to the harsh subject matter.
