ABOUT THE FILM

 

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends—Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.

Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin's original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

Sometimes we get the movies we want, sometimes we get the ones we need, and once in a great while we get one that we didn't know we wanted or needed, but that arrives by way of karmic necessity: a stinging rebuke, searing provocation and soothing balm all in one.

ABOUT THE FILM

 

Michèle seems indestructible. Head of a leading video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude to her love life as to business. Being attacked in her home by an unknown assailant changes Michèle's life forever. When she resolutely tracks the man down, they are both drawn into a curious and thrilling game—a game that may, at any moment, spiral out of control.

Sony Classics

[Isabelle] Huppert, a fearless actress (see The Piano Teacher), gives a performance that's a riveting mix of carnal and chilly—you can't take your eyes off her. There is outrage from critics who mistakenly believe that this is a film about a woman who enjoys sexual assault and might even deserve it, given her own complicity in rape-obsessed video games. But from its opening salvo to the shocking twist ending, Elle refuses to traffic in anything resembling misogynistic business as usual. [Director Paul] Verhoeven creates a bonfire of a movie that scrutinizes and satirizes the unholy alliance between sex and violence. The result is fiendishly funny and fiercely disturbing. Dig in.

—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

ABOUT THE FILM

 

Lucian Msamati (Luther, Game of Thrones, NT Live: The Comedy of Errors) plays Salieri in Peter Shaffer's iconic play, broadcast live from the National Theatre, and with live orchestral accompaniment by Southbank Sinfonia.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna, the music capital of the world—and he's determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius, court composer Antonio Salieri has the power to promote his talent or destroy his name. Seized by obsessive jealousy he begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God.

After winning multiple Olivier and Tony Awards when it had its premiere at the National Theatre in 1979, Amadeus was adapted into an Academy Award–winning film.

National Theatre Live

Amadeus is a stunning piece of theatre with two rich central roles. Following in the footsteps of Paul Scofield, Ian McKellen, David Suchet and Rupert Everett, Msamati is an excellent Salieri. He makes it clear that Salieri's attack on Mozart is a perpetuation of a war with a God by whom he feels personally betrayed. Above all, Msamati captures the contrast between the public and private Salieri. Outwardly, he is the most composed of all composers. Left alone, he beats himself in anguish, not least because he is the sole person in Vienna capable of appreciating Mozart's genius.

—, Michael Billington, The Guardian
