Best of Cannes Jean-Luc Godard?s:  GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE 3/D
Multiple screenings Continue through December 21, 2014
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
In the words of JLG?
the idea is simple
a married woman and a single man meet
they love, they argue, fists fly
a dog strays between town and country
the seasons pass
the man and woman meet again
the dog finds itself between them
the former husband shatters everything
a second film begins
the same as the first
and not yet
from the human race we pass to metaphor
this ends in barking
and a baby?s cries

WARHOL's "Silver Screen/Silver Factory": LUPE
Thursday, December 4, 9:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
LUPE, shot in December 1965, based on a campy piece of Hollywood history--the 1944 death of actress Lupe Velez, who died with her head in a toilet after planning an elegant suicide. In spite of this premise, the film is a rather straightforward filming of an uncampy Edie Sedgwick more or less playing herself, talking with Billy Name and dining alone in an elegant apartment. The main references to the Velez suicide are the shots of Segwick with her head in a toilet which end each reel, and which seem to foreshadow Sedgwick?s death a few years later. -Callie Angel, MoMA

MORE MILK YVETTE is an unscripted camp "opera" about Lana Turner, whose daughter Cheryl stabbed Turner's boyfriend, Johnny Stompanato, to death during a family quarrel in 1958. In the film, Mario Montez, dressed in drag as Lana Turner, sings snatches of improvised arias, eats lunch with "Cheryl," (played by a young man), and tries on different sweaters, accompanied, incongruously, by the insistent harmonica playing of a Bob Dylan look-alike. -Callie Angel, MoMA
