The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou - production design by Mark Friedberg

We are hosting a special 60th anniversary screening of On the Waterfront this Friday at the Bing Theater with special guest Eva Marie Saint. Get tickets here: http://bit.ly/OntheWaterfront

In the performance that would define his career, Marlon Brando plays Terry Malloy, a onetime prizefighter now resigned to backbreaking work as a longshoreman on docks ruled by a ruthless union boss (Lee J. Cobb) with mob ties.

Contributing to director Elia Kazan’s urban masterpiece are Karl Malden, who shines as a priest sympathetic to Malloy, and Eva Marie Saint, who earned a Supporting Actress Oscar for her indelible screen debut as the vulnerable sister of a fellow stevedore.

The film’s impact is intensified by Budd Schulberg’s Oscar-winning script, which features one of cinema’s most-loved speeches; Leonard Bernstein’s potent score, his only composed solely for film; and the Oscar-winning efforts of cinematographer Boris Kaufman and art director Richard Day.

Wes Anderson’s inspired cinema definitely stands on its own, but it also relates to the Hulot universe ànd Tati’s movie language. Especially the director himself talked about Tati’s cinema on several occasions.
Anderson on Tati: “He has a silhouette that you can make into a cartoon; just his walk is a great creation.”

Francois Truffaut directing Catherine Deneuve on the set of ‘Mississippi Mermaid’ in Grenoble, France, 1969.

I would just like to draw attention to the fact that the poster for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) totally apes the poster for The Breakfast Club (1985).

I think that deserves some recognition.

Paris: Jolly Film, 1967. Vintage black and white single weight borderless press photograph of director Jacques Tati on the office complex set of his epic 1967 film.
Here Tati appears in full regalia as Monsieur Hulot, standing amidst the construction of the vast office complex set that occupies the first half of the film. Hulot first came to the attention of the world during his beach vacation in “Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday” (1953), then reappeared in a modern French neighborhood in “Mon Oncle” (1958). The third feature finds him in the city, whose complexities unfold, revolve, deconstruct, and reconstruct before his eyes.
