    Martin Scorsese’s Film School – Nashville



    1975/Coloe/160mins/In English with English subtitles

    Director: Robert Altman

    Cast: Keith Carradine, Geraldine Chaplin, Karen Black


    This cornerstone of 1970s American moviemaking from Robert Altman is a panoramic view of the country’s political and cultural landscapes, set in the nation’s music capital. Nashville weaves the stories of twenty-four characters—from country star to wannabe to reporter to waitress—into a cinematic tapestry that is equal parts comedy, tragedy, and musical. Many members of the astonishing cast wrote their own songs and performed them live on location, which lends another layer to the film’s quirky authenticity. Altman’s ability to get to the heart of American life via its eccentric byways was never put to better use than in this grand, rollicking triumph, which barrels forward to an unforgettable conclusion.


    Date: Oct 27 (Tue)
    Time: 7:00 – 10:00pm
    Venue: 1/F Broadway Cinematheque
    Speaker: Born Law, Mr. Kelvin Lui

  • ' KICK-ASS '
    — Matthew Vaughn

    Kick-Ass is a comic book action movie and a teen comedy that delivers somecrazy outsize, cartoonlike violence of a Tarantino.Starting with a high school kid who dresses like a superhero and calls himself “Kick-Ass,” the movie’s world expands to the worlds of media, Internet and…organized crime! Yet however grand and fantastic individual elements may become, the personal relationships are grounded in recognizable reality. Though the events in “Kick-Ass” are extreme, we still recognize that his is our world – just a wild, funhouse version of it.


  • ' Memories of Murder '
    — Bong Joon-ho

    Based on the real-life story of Korea’s first recorded serial killer, Memories of Murder raises some troublesome questions about the nature of justice and the fallibility of investigative police methods before DNA testing. Told almost entirely from the point of view of the police, it is unusually candid about the false starts and utter chaos of this particular case. The film is a tense, old-school crime film with a dark edge that also works as a hilariously funny comedy in which a police officer and his bumbling colleagues arrest and abuse various suspects.



  • ' Inglorious Basterds '
    — Quentin Jerome Tarantino

    A Tarantino film resists categorization and Inglorious Basterds is definitely not your run of the mill WWII film. Structured as five chapters, the story evolves around three iconic characters: the Hero, the Nazi and the Girl. Big, bold and audacious, this Category III version shown here is the only version that does the film justice. Christopher Waltz gives a kick-ass performance as the sardonic and absurd Nazi, sweeping awards at Cannes, Oscar and BAFTA.



  • ' Milk '
    — Gus Van Sant

    With Milk, Van Sant weds a straightforward linear narrative and high-profile cast with a subject matter that has genuine resonance for him. Using the account of one of USA’s first openly gay public officials Harvey Milk, who was assassinated in 1978, Van Santinvests the gay rights movement with mythic grandeur. As Milk, Sean Penn has an uncanny physical resemblance from some angles; but themost striking is the spiritual transformation. Playing the man who ultimately killed Milk, Josh Brolin’s remarkable performance is a chilling study in weakness. Van Sant mixes archival footage with new footage and it’s fascinating to see San Francisco in the ’70s.


  • ' Soundless Wind Chime '
    — Kit Hung

    Nominated for the 2009 Berlin Film Festival Teddy Award, Soundless Wind Chime chronicles the story between Ricky, a Chinese, and Pascal, a Swiss. Like any other couple they struggle though good times and rough patches. Years after the relationship ended, Ricky goes to Switzerland and encounters Ueli who looks just like Pascal. As this new relationship grows, we also learn about what really happened to Pascal and Ricky….


  • ' 20, 30, 40 '
    — Sylvia Chang

    Three different women, at three different stages in their lives, allow their relationships to live out in Taipei – an aspiring pop star, a flighty air hostess and a flower shop owner. Sylvia Chang,has taken stories created by the three leads and created a film of refreshingly non-intertwining stories.Their conflicts vary, but touch on very basic, common themes: identity, belonging, the quest for companionship, and simply getting by in the mixed-up modern world. 



  • ' At the End of Daybreak '
    — Yuhang Ho

    Twenty three year old Tuck Chai drifts along in life, spending his days helping out in his mother’s shop and nights riding his motorcycle and shooting pool with friends. Nothing excites him much except for Ying, a wealthy teenager Tuck is secretly dating. When their relationship is discovered, lives of the two families are thrown into turmoil. Inspired by a tabloid crime story, At the End of Daybreak is a tale of class divides, tragic love and the loss of innocence. Wai Ying-hung shows great emotional depth as the well-meaning yet inadequate whiskey-loving single mother.


  • ' Water Drops on the Burning Rocks '
    — François Ozon

    Adapted from a play written by German auteur Fassbinder when he was 19 years old Ozon has kept to a theatrical structure, dividing the film into four acts. Two men and two women enter the claustrophobic apartment where all the action takes place, but the only way one of them will be able to leave is feet first. Ozon uses constraints of a single set as an opportunity for dexterous camera work. The décor is amazingly evocative down to the smallest detail. But the impromptu dance ensemble in the last act is definitely the highlight of this nasty, provocative comedy.


  • ' Three Monkeys '
    — Nuri Bilge Ceylan

    See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil – unfortunately that does not stop evilness from existing. Eyup’s boss killed a man in a car accident and pays him to be the scapegoat. While Eyup is in prison, his son gets into trouble and his wife becomes the politician’s mistress. How does Eyup family get broken, when the crime is not even committed by him? A dark drama with extraordinary visuals, Ceylan won the Best Director award at Cannes in 2008.
