Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
THE MUMMY (1932)
Dir: Karl Freund
Boris Karloff gives one of his finest performances as the 3,000-year-old Egyptian who returns from the dead to reclaim reincarnated love Zita Johann, in cinematographer-turned-director Karl Freund’s marvelously atmospheric chiller - easily the best of many mummy films to come.
This retro homage to Italian giallo movies and '70s and '80s slasher flicks follows Duane Lewis, a New York fry cook driven mad by disco music. After he flips out and kills a woman in a club, Duane flees to Montreal - but he discovers that there's no getting away from the music that drives him insane, and before long he's on a grisly killing spree.
Adapted by Satyajit Ray from a story by his grandfather, this enchanting children’s fantasy was one of the director’s most successful films in India, spawning two more installments in the series. An aspiring singer and drummer team up and are granted three magical powers, which they use to bring harmony to two kingdoms on the brink of war. A light-hearted romp with some impressive, if simple, special effects and plenty of joyful music (all of it written by Ray). In Bengali with English subtitles.
