Friday, January 24 – 7:30 PM FORD VS. REICHARDT
Double Feature: STAGECOACH, 1939, AGFA, 96 min. Dir. John Ford. A stagecoach full of involving characters, superbly drawn and played, travels through dangerous Indian territory. After a decade in movies, John Wayne became a star once and for all as the Ringo Kid, gallantly defending vulnerable shady lady Claire Trevor, while Thomas Mitchell’s drunken doctor won him an Oscar.
10th Anniversary! MEEK’S CUTOFF, 2010, Oscilloscope Laboratories, 104 min. Dir. Kelly Reichardt. Shot in the Academy ratio with stark, spare elegance, director Kelly Reichardt’s slow-burn tone poem following a group of lost pioneers in the barren desert of 1845 Oregon is enigmatic frontier cinema at its best. The stellar cast includes Michelle Williams as bonneted, tough-as-nails wagoner Emily Tetherow, Rod Rondeaux as the silently impassive Native man encountered and then captured by the group, and Bruce Greenwood as scruffy, McCabe-like blowhard Stephen Meek, whose disastrous trail misguiding is either plainly incompetent or purely malicious. With Zoe Kazan, Paul Dano, Shirley Henderson and Will Patton. “A bracingly original foray into territory that remains, in every sense, unsettled.” - A.O. Scott, The New York Times
