MCCABE & MRS. MILLER
1971, Warner Bros., 120 min, Dir: Robert Altman

Director Robert Altman spins fresh variations on archetypal themes and characters in a film that set the mood for 1970s revisionist Westerns. Memorable opening images of an unlikely hero riding toward town, accompanied by the music of Leonard Cohen, introduce this opium dream of a Western, starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie, with superb cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond.


35 mm!

NO SUBTITLES NECESSARY: LASZLO & VILMOS
2008, Cinema Libre Studio, 86 min, USA, Dir: James Chressanthis

The New Hollywood cinema of the 1970s owes much of its look to a pair of Hungarian film school refugees, Laszlo Kovacs and Vilmos Zsigmond. This documentary by fellow cinematographer Chressanthis is a loving tribute to these two lifelong friends and master craftsmen, with interviews from such colleagues as Peter Bogdanovich, Richard Donner and Dennis Hopper and clips from classic films shot by Kovacs and Zsigmond, including EASY RIDER, THE DEER HUNTER and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND.


Thanks to the Criterion Collection for the new 4K restoration of MCCABE & MRS. MILLER, made in cooperation with Warner Bros.
