New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

July 21 & 27

Part of the series B-Side Cinema: Five Overlooked Movies from Great Directors. Host Daniel Simpson will introduce the screening on Thursday July 27 @ 5:40pm.

Following the quiet sadness of The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation, Sofia Coppola took a hard left turn into opulence with her third feature. Ostensibly a biopic of the titular queen, Marie Antoinette explores the subject with an ironic twist, the film loaded with a modern energy bolstered by its New Wave-heavy soundtrack. Booed at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006, Marie Antoinette has endured as among the most creative and audacious historical biopics ever made.

With lyrical intelligence and scrappy wit, Coppola creates a luscious world to get lost in. It’s a pleasure.

Rolling Stone

A startlingly original and beautiful pop reverie that comes very close to being transcendent.
