You and Me

Film - Feature | July 3 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

From its dazzling, disorienting opening montage of cash registers and consumer goods, with an offscreen singer-narrator warning in solemn sprechstimme that “you cannot get something for nothing,” it’s clear that You and Me is not your ordinary romantic fairy tale. Lang said he intended this comedy-melodrama of love, crime, and the retail trade to be “a picture that teaches something in an...   More >

The 400 Blows

Film - Feature | July 4 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

In the mountain village of Gagliano, in the impoverished Lucania region of south-central Italy, a proverb reflects the unchanging nature of the inhabitants’ isolation: even Christ stopped at Eboli, the town at the bottom of the bare and craggy hill. In 1935 Carlo Levi, the leftist writer, physician, and painter, was banished by the Fascist government to three years’ exile in Gagliano. His...   More >

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Drawn primarily from Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2, with additions from other plays and Holinshed’s Chronicles, Welles’s interpretation of the life and death of “this great hill of flesh” Sir John Falstaff is both acutely personal and faithful to the language and spirit of Shakespeare.

When three-time loser Eddie Taylor (Henry Fonda) is about to be released from prison, his lawyer assures the warden that Eddie will make good.
