Double Feature: HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT, 2015, Cohen Media Group, 79 min. Dir. Kent Jones. In 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting - used to produce the legendary book Hitchcock/Truffaut - this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and immerses us in the world of the creator of PSYCHO, THE BIRDS and VERTIGO. Hitchcock’s incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today’s leading filmmakers, including Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader. “A film buff’s nirvana. ... A resourceful, illuminating and very welcome documentation both of filmmaking and the making of history.” - Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
U.S. Premiere of New 4K Restoration! SABOTEUR, 1942, Universal, 108 min. Dir. Alfred Hitchcock. Alfred Hitchcock transfers the successful formula of his British films to Hollywood by telling yet another story of a falsely accused man on the run. This time it’s Robert Cummings as Barry Kane, an aircraft worker who is blamed for an explosion at his factory. As Kane hunts down the real saboteurs, Hitchcock uses his familiar chase structure to justify slyly satirical musings on patriotism and its flipside, paranoid ideas that culminate in the wonderful climax set on top of the Statue of Liberty. Norman Lloyd co-stars as one of the most wickedly engaging villains in the Hitchcock oeuvre. Discussion between films with HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT director Kent Jones.
