Slack Bay—Seaside Class Critique — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

Watch now on Filmatique!

The bourgeois Van Peteghem family are no strangers to the bliss of upper-class existence. Perched atop the cliffs of Normandy, the eccentric clan of relatives have congregated in their family villa, where they will spend the summer overlooking resplendent Slack Bay. The blithe luxury of their days is interrupted, however, when two local inspectors arrive at their manse, seeking information on a series of disappearances in the area. Mysteries mount as ever more tourists go missing, and internal tensions soon send the stately aristocrats into a frenzy.

Blending Belle Époque-era period details with contemporary class critique, and starring French cinema titans Juliette Binoche, Fabrice Luchini, and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, Slack Bay is striated along lines of pitch-black, absurdist farce. Bruno Dumont's follow-up to Lil' Quinquin premiered at Cannes, Karlovy Vary, Melbourne, Jerusalem, and Seville, where it won Best Actress and Best Film.

October: French Art House II — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

During the month of October Filmatique presents French Art House II, a collection of works by some of the finest filmmakers working in France.

Following his droll Normany-set murder mystery Li'l Quinquin, Bruno Dumont's Slack Bay once more mobilizes the formalism of the absurd to interrogate class difference amid a provincial French community. Diverging from her slapstick performance in Slack Bay, Juliette Binoche plays the role of a journalist investigating Parisian prostitution rings in Elles, a modern feminist tale by award-winning Polish filmmaker Malgoska Szumowska. Louis Garrel's sophmore feature and New York Times Critics' Pick A Faithful Man charts the evolution of a couple's shifting allegiances over the course of a decade. Both Martin Provost's Violette and Alain Resnais's You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet examine the creative process—the former through the eyes of Violette LeDuc, the protege of Simone de Beauvoir, the latter as a group of theater actors re-enact the play Eurydice.

September: Cinema Italiano! — Filmatique - Watch Great Films

During the month of September Filmatique presents Cinema Italiano!, a collection of works from some of the most exciting filmmakers working in Italian cinema.
Blending neo-realist aesthetics with the soaring rhetoric of Shakespeare, Paolo & Vittorio Taviani's Caesar Must Die is a riveting journey into a high-security prison in the Italian capital, where inmates are participating in a performance of Julius Caesar. Renowned Italian actress Valeria Golino's debut feature Miele (Honey) subtly navigates the topic of assisted suicide through the eyes of an activist who develops a friendship with one of her patients; Gianni Di Gregorio's second film The Salt of Life is a tender meditation on the way men see women, and vice versa, once men reach a certain age. Steeped in the mesmerizing cadences of human and non-human realms, Michelangelo Frammartino's Le Quattro Volte traces the passage of one man's soul through the elements, high in the mountains of Calabria.
Featuring works from celebrated auteurs alongside first and second films from new directors, Filmatique's Cinema Italiano! series offers a diverse panorama of contemporary Italian film.

In an exclusive essay for Filmatique, Guest Curator Alex Gootter explores notions of salvation, community, and friendship vis-à-vis Will Oldman's character Ike in New Jerusalem.

Will Oldham has served as a muse to a host of directors (Kelly Reichardt, Todd Rohal, Michael Blieden via Kanye West among them) whose modes of Americana embrace an appreciative but unvarnished empathy. His characters are acerbic even in their kindness: realistic but generally free of judgment on t

"Cool and calming as a summer sea breeze… In the humble Hawaiian bed-and-breakfast where much of August at Akiko's is set, a sign to guests offers the following instruction for when they depart: 'Leave no trace, just a presence.' In a sense, writer-director Christopher Makoto Yogi's beguiling whisper of a debut does much the same thing: A late-summer mood piece, sometimes literally meditative in pace and ambience, it's not heavy-imprint filmmaking, but its breezy, benevolent warmth stays with you after its immediate details begin to fade" - Guy Lodge, Rotterdam Review, Variety
