BOYHOOD (R) 165 min, Drama.  Director: Richard Linklater; Stars: Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette& Ethan Hawke.  Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey. (c) Sundance Film Fest

TAMPOPO (1985) (NR) 114 min. Comedy. Director: Jûzô Itami, Japan.  Stars: Ken Watanabe, Tsutomu Yamazaki, Nobuko Miyamoto.  Itami described his off-beat comedy as a "ramen western… about people in a situation where sex and eating are not yet clearly separated."  Two truck drivers help a young widow improve her noodle restaurant in this wildly inventive film, whose plot meanders among stories and genres, with romance and bar brawls along the way. Japanese with English subtitles.  Bucknell Univ.

Winner of 7 Olivier Awards in 2013, including Best New Play. Christopher, fifteen years old, has an extraordinary brain – exceptional at math while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion of killing Mrs. Shears' dog Wellington, he records each fact about the event in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of the murder. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world. (For more information see <http://ntlive.nationaltheatre.org.uk/>) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is rated “suitable for 15+” by the British Board of Film Classification.  Admission:  Adults, $15; Seniors, $12; Special Student Pricing Applies

Cain’s torrid novel had been declared too hot for Hollywood’s Production Code Administration for a decade before Wilder willed the project past the censors—mainly by casting it as a morality tale. Stanwyck accepted the challenge of her nasty role, giving a knockout performance as the seductive murderess, and MacMurray broke from years of typecasting as an affable good guy to make insurance man Walter Neff one of the screen’s most cynical anti-heroes.  DCP 70th Anniversary Restoration -Presented by the Bucknell Arts Council during Arts.Everywhere Festival.  Free & Open to the Public..   (no reserved seating)

THE GIRL FROM CHIGAGO (1932) (NR) 70 min. Drama.  Director: Oscar Micheaux, U.S. Stars: Grace Smith, Carl Mahon, Eunice Brooks.  Pioneering black filmmaker Oscar Micheaux made 44 race films (made with mostly all-black casts for black audiences and screened in segregated theaters) between 1919 and 1948, working against stereotypes of African-Americans that pervaded mainstream cinema.

HALLELUJAH (1929) (NR) 109 min. Musical.  Director: King Vidor, U.S. Stars: Daniel L. Haynes, Nina Mae McKinney, William E. Fountaine.  This MGM musical was the first of its kind for a major Hollywood studio: shot on location in the South with an all-black cast. Its tale of a minister on the revival circuit, whose troubled past comes back to haunt him, may invite criticism for its stereotypes, but it was a labor of love for Vidor, who worked without salary and hired African-American advisers with his own money.   Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

HIGH SCHOOL II (1994) (NR) 220 min. Documentary.  Director: Frederick Wiseman, U.S.   Twenty-five years after his Vietnam-era portrait of a Philadelphia high school, America’s greatest documentarian focused on a successful alternative high school in New York’s Spanish Harlem.

Stahl, U.S.  Stars: Claudette Colbert, Ned Sparks, Louise Beavers.   Two widowed mothers - one white (Colbert), one black (Beavers) - decide to go into business together.

Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

IT FELT LIKE LOVE (2013) (NR) 82 min. Drama. Director: Eliza Hittman, U.S. Stars: Gina Piersanti, Giovanna Salimeni, Ronen Rubinstein.  Turning “the coming-of-age formula into a foreboding nightmare" (Indiewire), Hittman has proven herself a talent to watch, a new voice in American independent film distinctive for its unflinching honesty, refreshingly unsentimental tone and adept visualization of the furtive, longing world of adolescence. During a languid Brooklyn summer, 14-year-old Lila pursues her sexual awakening, her overt advances in pursuit of an older boy unmasking her inexperience, quiet desperation and vulnerability. Part of the BU Tuesday Evening Film/Media Studies Series.  $2 admission

Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

M (1931) (NR) 111 min. Thriller.  Director: Fritz Lang, Germany.  Stars: Peter Lorre, Gustav Grundgens, Theo Lingen.  Lang's story of a tormented man with a compulsion to kill little girls, who is pursued by both the city’s law enforcement and its criminal underworld, puts both a pathetic murderer and morality on trial.

Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT (PG-13) 97 min  -  Comedy | Drama | Romance.  Director: Woody Allen, Stars: Colin Firth, Antonia Clarke, Natasha Andrews.  A romantic comedy about an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle. Personal and professional complications ensue.

THE MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA (1929) (NR) 67 min. Documentary. Director: Dziga Vertov, U.S.S.R .  One of the most innovative and influential films of the silent era, Vertov’s masterpiece is startlingly modern, its groundbreaking style of rapid editing and incorporation of innumerable cinematic effects creating a brilliant and exhilarating dawn-to-dusk montage of the Russian metropolis.   Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

*MORE THAN HONEY  (2013) (NR) 91 min. Documentary.  Multiple languages with English subtitles. Director: Markus Imhoof Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof tackles the vexing issue of why bees are facing extinction.

Free & Open to the Public.

PLAYTIME (1967) (NR) 123 min. Comedy. Director: Jacques Tati, France. Stars: Jacques Tati, Barbara Dennek, Jacqueline Lecomte.  Tati thrust the endearingly clumsy, resolutely old-fashioned Monsieur Hulot into a bafflingly modernist Paris for this monumental achievement. With every inch of its super-wide frame crammed with inventiveness, Playtime is a gloriously choreographed, absurdist satire about confusion in the age of technology. In multiple languages with English subtitles.   Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

POLICEMAN (2011) (NR) 105 min. Thriller. Director: Nadav Lapid, Israel.  Stars: Yiftach Klein, Yaara Pelzig, Michael Mushonov.  Three years after the Village Voice named Policeman one of the five must-see films of the New York Film Festival, the film is finally receiving its U.S. release.  Considering an unwell body politic, Lapid’s narrative segues adventurously from a soon-to-be father and member of an elite anti-terrorist squad to a group of bourgeois youths decrying Israeli socio-economic disparities. When the film’s two simmering halves meet, Israel’s routine clash with the "Palestinian enemy" is replaced with a threat from revolutionaries who “represent a side of Israel foreign not only to Yaron, but to the paradigm of national cinema Lapid is confronting” (Mark Peranson).  Co-presented with Campus Jewish Life, with support from the Kalman Jewish Life and Learning Fund, and Hillel. Screening as part of Bucknell’s Israeli Film Series, running through November.  Hebrew with English subtitles.

Thriller.  Director: Tom Tykwer, Germany  Stars: Franka Potente, Moritz Bleibtreu, Herbert Knaup.   Lola runs not for her own life but for her boyfriend, who has lost a hundred thousand marks of drug money.

German with English subtitles.   Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

SHANGHAI EXPRESS (1932) (NR) 82 min. Espionage.  Director: Josef von Sternberg, U.S.  Stars: Marlene Dietrich, Clive Brook, Anna May Wong.  Political intrigue and sexual tension simmer in Sternberg’s fantasy of China, where a train crossing the war-torn country carries Shanghai Lily (Dietrich), fellow courtesan Hui Fei (Wong, the first Chinese American movie star) and Shanghai Lily’s old flame (Brook).   Bucknell Univ.

SPEEDY (1928) (NR) 86 min. Comedy. Director: Ted Wilde, U.S.  Stars: Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy, Bert Woodruff.

WRITTEN ON THE WIND (1956) (NR) 99 min. Melodrama.  Director: Douglas Sirk, U.S.   Stars: Robert Stack, Dorothy Malone, Rock Hudson, Lauren Bacall.   Sirk’s always elegant depiction of human despair and loneliness embraces the Hadleys, a family wracked by spiritual degradation. Stack, the oil-rich clan’s alcoholic son, and his best friend (the humbler, sensible Hudson) are both are in love with the radiant Bacall – to the chagrin of Malone, the other miserable Hadley in Sirk’s sublime melodrama.    Bucknell Univ.
