Moonlight

2016, USA, 111 MINS, 14A

Dir: Barry Jenkins
Starring: Naomie Harris, Alex R. Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Duan Sanderson, Herman 'Caheei McGloun, Jaden Piner, Janelle Monáe, Mahershala Ali, Shariff Earp

MOONLIGHT is an astonishing testament to the power of empathy and love. 

A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.

Arrival

2016, USA, 116 MINS, PG

Dir: Denis Villeneuve
Starring: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Michael Stuhlbarg, Forest Whitaker

When 12 alien spacecraft land around the world, linguistics expert Dr. Louise Banks (Amy Adams) and theoretical physicist Ian Donnelly (Jeremy Renner) are recruited by the US military to obtain the answer to one question: "What do they want?" Arriving in Montana, working under the leadership of Colonel Weber (Forest Whitaker), Louise and Ian are only remotely aware that their lives and the future of humanity are about to become inextricably linked. As the unlikely pair collaborate to solve this extraterrestrial translation puzzle, 11 other teams around the world are attempting to do the same.

Certain to thrill mainstream moviegoers, cinephiles, sci-fi fans, and linguistics nerds alike, Arrival challenges the notion that technology improves our ability to communicate by focusing on the fundamentals. Villeneuve finds excitement in the details, crafting an atmosphere where dissecting the various components and interpretations of a sentence is as gripping as the first sight of aliens.

Aided by Bradford Young's arresting cinematography, Jóhann Jóhannsson's captivating score, and long-time collaborator Patrice Vermette's minimalist production design, Villeneuve shows masterful control over tone as he creates palpable tension that quietly builds to the film's powerful conclusion. At once beautiful and haunting, Arrival is an alien movie that is fundamentally human. - TIFF

The Autopsy of Jane Doe

2016, UK, 86 MINS, 14A

Dir: André Øvredal
Starring: Emile Hirsch, Brian Cox, Ophelia Lovibond

The much anticipated English-language debut by Norwegian director André Øvredal (Troll Hunter) is a riveting, chilling, and utterly original horror story. In small-town Virginia, police are called to a gruesome crime scene where a family has been massacred in their own house. In the basement, an even more disturbing discovery is made: the partially buried corpse of a nude woman. The cops take this unidentified victim to a small, family-run morgue, where they ask proprietor Tommy Tilden (Brian Cox) to perform an urgent forensic analysis in order to help determine what happened at the blood-stained house. Tommy's son Austen (Emile Hirsch) cancels a date with his girlfriend (Ophelia Lovibond) in order to help his father perform an autopsy, and the two Tildens set about their grisly examination in the morgue basement.

Hirsch and Cox bring an amusingly intimate familiarity to the father and son's idyllic but morbid livelihood, which slowly turns into a living nightmare. Grab the scalpel, turn on the tape recorder, and get ready to go deep into the inner cavities of a cadaver, where the mysteries are much more than skin deep.

B-Movie Bingo: The Running Man

1987, USA, 101 MINS, R

Dir: Paul Michael Glaser
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Conchita Alonso, Yaphet Kotto

Welcome to a brand new year! For our January edition of B-Movie Bingo we present to you 2017, as imagined in 1987's The Running Man.

At one point in The Running Man, Arnold Schwarzenegger grabs some random goon by the genitals, looks straight into his eyes with a snarky grin, twists, and says, “Give you a lift?” He then lifts said goon over his head and throws the poor guy over a platform to his death. And that’s about as sophisticated as this Stephen King (writing as Richard Bachman) adaptation gets, being about a televised gameshow of the future in which, to win their own freedom, convicted criminals face hunter-killers called “Stalkers” in an arena. The film by director Paul Michael Glaser (better known as Starsky from TV’s Starsky and Hutch) amounts to a cinematic gladiatorial exhibition—complete with a cast of body builders, boxers, and professional wrestlers—with touches of a cynical post-apocalyptic dystopia to decorate the scenery. At odds with itself about its own purpose, the movie condemns the exhibition of violence, and yet at every turn resolves to be the very thing it condemns.

Groundhog Day - Free for Apollo Members!

1993, USA, 102 MINS, PG

Dir: Harold Ramis
Starring: Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Andie Macdowell

In celebration of our two year anniversary, join us on Groundhog Day for a screening of GROUNDHOG DAY! Admission is FREE for Apollo Members. 

How would it feel to wake up to the same day every day? Would you crack up at the sheer tedium of it all? Cynically exploit others (they don't know they're trapped in a time warp) with what you learned about them the day before? Or use the situation to better yourself? That's the dilemma facing misanthropic TV weatherman Phil Connors (Murray) when he once more visits the small town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania - 'weather capital of the world' - to report on its annual Groundhog Day ceremony. What's so satisfying about Danny Rubin and Harold Ramis' script - besides the sheer plethora of gags - is the way it rigorously covers every last nuance of Connors' nightmarish predicament: he can drink himself legless without fear of the morning after, endlessly refine his chat-up lines, become an expert in 19th century French verse, but whatever he does he ends up back where he was on the dot of six. Ramis directs this surreal suburban fantasy with an admirably light touch, revelling in its absurd repetitions, surprising us with narrative ellipses, and allowing Murray ample space to indulge his special mix of sarcasm and smarm. But this is first and foremost a comedy of ideas, on which score it never falters. - TimeOut
