MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN
2019, Warner Bros., 144 min, USA, Dir: Edward Norton

Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), a lonely private detective living with Tourette syndrome, ventures to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). Armed only with a few clues and the engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel unravels closely guarded secrets that hold the fate of New York in the balance. In a mystery that carries him from gin-soaked jazz clubs in Harlem to the hard-edged slums of Brooklyn and, finally, into the gilded halls of New York’s power brokers, Lionel contends with thugs, corruption and the most dangerous man in the city to honor his friend and save the woman who might be his own salvation.


35 mm!

PRIMAL FEAR
1996, Paramount, 129 min, USA, Dir: Gregory Hoblit

In this glossy legal thriller, a hot-shot lawyer (Richard Gere) chooses to defend a young man (Edward Norton, in his Oscar-nominated feature debut) accused of murdering an archbishop. But closer examination of the facts reveals dark secrets about the archbishop and the boy’s past. The top-flight supporting cast includes Laura Linney, John Mahoney, Alfre Woodard and Frances McDormand. “The plot is as good as crime procedurals get, but the movie is really better than its plot because of the three-dimensional characters.” - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
