IN THE CINÉMA CLUB OF…
Chloë Sevigny is one of American independent cinema’s most iconic figures, an Oscar-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actress known for her brilliant performances in the work of auteurs like Korine, Stillman, Assayas and Fincher while also maintaining parallel careers as a designer, model and filmmaker. Her third directorial short, White Echo, and Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die, in which she stars, both premiered at Cannes this year. The Dead Don’t Die opened in U.S. theaters June 14.
DEPECHE MODE: 101, David Dawkins, Chris Hegedus & D. A. Pennebaker, 1989
For fans and about the fans, in a perfect cocktail.
A VERY CURIOUS GIRL, Nelly Kaplan, 1969
Feminist call to arms. Punk as fuck. Perfectly described by writer-director Nelly Kaplan as about “a witch who doesn’t let herself be burned.”
RED-HEADED WOMAN, Jack Conway, 1932
A pre-code Jean Harlow unabashedly plowing through men, in dresses cut to kill by Adrian.
OVER THE EDGE, Jonathan Kaplan, USA, 1979
’70s Americana, teen suburban angst, all buttery. Sexiest pick-up scene cut to “You Really Got Me”.
THE MAGDALENE SISTERS, Peter Mullan, 2002
An unsentimental handling of a small portion of the atrocities the Catholic Church raged on Ireland.
