Preview Screenings this Thursday: Hit Man - one of the most anticipated comedies of the year

🇫🇷 September 22, 24 & 28

“BARDOT + GODARD = MOVIE GREATNESS!” — Time Out New York

Scenes from a marital breakdown between screenwriter (Michel Piccoli) and his wife (Brigitte Bardot), as both become enmeshed in the behind-the-camera struggles of a director (Fritz Lang) and producer (Jack Palance) as they film an adaptation of Homer’s The Odyssey.

Splendid, prophetic, visually ravishing… this pop-art masterpiece is still light years ahead of its time.

J. Hoberman

Contempt transports us back to another era: an early ’60s world in which the classicism of the past…is juxtaposed with the emptiness and ennui of modern culture.

Chicago Tribune

The miracle here is that for all its use of irony and self-reflexive devices, Contempt still ends up with a considerable emotional punch.
