“Few directors get as deeply under the skin as Breillat, a longtime, reliably interesting provocateur who tests the limits of what the world thinks women should do and say and be... LAST SUMMER is complex, tricky, at times very uncomfortable and thoroughly engrossing. —#ManohlaDargis, NYT Critic’s Pick, @nytimes

The fearless 75-year-old French auteur Catherine Breillat’s LAST SUMMER — her first film in a decade — screens Fri-Sun, Jul 12-21. (Tickets at link in bio, or > bit.ly/Belcourt-LAST-SUMMER)

One night only! Thu, Jul 18 at 6:30pm + 9:15pm! Nashville’s premiere performances of director Gary Hustwit new generative documentary ENO at the Belcourt will be created live in real time by the filmmaker. These versions will never be seen again! And after both showtimes, Gary joins audiences for post-screening discussions — after the 6:30pm screening, @nprmusic critic and correspondent Ann Powers moderates the discussion; after the 9:15pm screening, music journalist and @BBC correspondent Bill DeMain moderates. (Tickets for this special evening are $30/$25 Belcourt members — via link in bio, or bit.ly/ENO-director-QAs)

ENO is the world’s first generative cinematic documentary and, like a musical performance that’s different every night, ENO creates a unique viewing experience for each audience. Utilizing a proprietary software system developed by Hustwit and digital artist Brendan Dawes, the film has millions of possible variations of scenes and footage drawn from Hustwit’s original interviews and Eno’s rich archive of hundreds of hours of never-before-seen footage and unreleased music. The result is a film that resonates with Eno’s own artistic practice, his methods of using technology to compose music, and his endless deep dive into the mercurial essence of creativity.

“Watching REVIVAL 69, you can’t help but compare it to today’s musical landscape and pine for a simpler time when musicians could play with anyone at any time. Public relations teams weren’t a thing then. And brand recognition and rock ’n’ roll had yet to meet.” —Dana Gee @thevancouversun

REVIVAL 69 this Mon, Jul 8 at 8pm + Tue, Jul 9 at 4:25pm, 8:45pm — a behind-the-scenes look at the 1969 Toronto Rock and Roll Revival festival — with the likes of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Little Richard, The Doors, Chuck Berry, Alice Cooper, and others. (Tickets at link in bio, or bit.ly/REVIVIAL-69)

“Capping an unusual trilogy, MAXXXINE is an intense woman-fights-back thriller. Mia Goth’s Maxine is what you’d get if the Robert De Niro and Jodie Foster of TAXI DRIVER were fused in the telepod from THE FLY.” —Kim Newman, Empire

Opening this Fri, Jun 28, from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker, JANET PLANET. Tickets here 🎟 > bit.ly/JANET-PLANET

In IndieWire, Esther Zuckerman writes: “Annie Baker‘s understated miracle of a directorial debut…is gloriously packed with the carefully observed details of the lives of its central characters, who are embodied with warmth and endearing strangeness by Ziegler, an incredible discovery, and the typically fantastic Nicholson, who gives one of her finest performances to date. It also marks Baker’s transition from heralded playwright into major cinematic voice.”

“...Vibrantly, defiantly off-putting stance and sidesplittingly sick sense of humor. It’s a triptych that at first seems slight, then gains meaning the longer you hold its three seemingly disconnected short films in juxtaposition and peer through the overlaps... This strange world calls for delicious off-kilter performances, and the cast — particularly [Emma] Stone, who’s proven her mettle in this regard, and [Jesse] Plemons — deliver. If you think you know what’s happening in a scene, just wait.” —Alissa Wilkinson, NYT Critic’s Pick @nytimes

Yorgos Lanthimos’ KINDS OF KINDNESS now playing — fresh from the 2024 Cannes Film Festival and featuring a stacked cast, including frequent collaborators Emma Stone and Willem Dafoe, as well as Margaret Qualley, Hong Chau, Jesse Plemons and more.
