North by Northwest @ Riverview; 7:00. The second showing in the Bernhard Herrmann series by Take-Up. Cary Grant is mixed-up in some kind of Hitchcockian thriller. We got a beautiful Eva Marie Saint, a crop-duster nearly taking Grant's head, and a finale finding our protagonist in a literal cliffhanger. It's one for the ages.
Greenhorns @ St Anthony; 7:00. Part of the Sustainability Film Series. This film examines the lives of more youthful farmers, hoping to entice a younger generation into a life of agriculture. Part of a new genre of hippie propaganda.
The Magic of Light @ Black Dog Cafe; 7:00. Last in the Film for the Arts series. Works by Caravaggio, Rothko and Magritte and examined, hoping to show how the artists see light through their art.
Citizen Kane @ Walker; 7:30. Orson Welles struts his stuff while taking down media mogul William Randolph Hearst. In an era where no one was making great films, this picture stood out as one of the best ever.
Burzynski's Cure for Cancer @ Casket Cinema; 7:30. A look at the pharmaceutical world, pitting the interests of drug manufacturers against selfless innovators.
And don't forget about two more films showing this week at the Minneapolis Jewish Film Festival:
|APRIL 5||No. 4 Street of Our Lady|
|APRIL 7||Auf Widersehen: 'Til We Meet Again|
