"The cosmic rhymes these movies find within themselves and in concert with each other create a rare poetry…. The worse things appear, the more hopeful it is to watch a film that humbles us into realizing we may not understand the shape of our world as well as we might think. With his magnum opus, Kieślowski orchestrated three of them.” —David Ehrlich @indiewire

Repost from @katekillsit

The Belcourt has been our ride or die since our kids were itty bitty (like we had to pack a diaper bag itty bitty) and now they come with their friends, drive themselves and ask questions like; “So what does a membership get you anyway?”

Then there are rare and magical nights (like tonight) when stars and schedules align and the five of us are together again, (before 2 of them leave for college!) debating where the best seats are, sharing popcorn, and waiting for the show to start (but kinda secretly hoping it will never end.)

Thank you for 18 years (that went WAY too fast) We ❤️ you!! @belcourttheatre 🎥 🍿

PS. GO SEE FIRE OF LOVE!! 🌋 🧡

“Though ORNETTE: MADE IN AMERICA is hardly a straight-up biographical doc — its looping structure and three-legged-dog rhythms make it more like an Ornette composition than a conventional movie — it’s the place to go to unlock some of the most precious secrets of Ornette.” —Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

Protested and boycotted on initial release 30 years ago, Paul Verhoeven’s sleaze noir reinvigorated the erotic thriller on a global scale. And what then seemed a case of hero cops versus bisexual stereotypes has now done a 180-degree shift for the “Be Gay Do Crimes” era — presided over by the iconic Sharon Stone in a starmaking performance.
