Helen, an aspiring art photographer, has wrecked her marriage and lost custody of her young son after a drunken driving arrest. At an art opening she strikes up a friendship with a dazzling couple. Ava Havilland adopts Helen with gusto, drawing her into a sparkling social life with her wealthy philanthropist husband, Swift. They begin to fill the aching absence in Helen’s life left by the loss of her son as Helen struggles not to return to the bottle. Then Helen meets Elliott, a kind, quiet accountant who offers loyalty and love with none of her newfound friends’ fireworks. As Helen increasingly falls under the Havillands’ influence and begins questioning her relationship with Elliot, Ava and Swift hold out the most seductive gift: their influence and help to regain custody of her son. Maynard’s propulsive storytelling sets the scene for a fierce and satisfying climax.

Indie raconteur and conversationalist par excellance Kevin Corrigan joins us to present one of his favorite films, Five Corners. Presciently cast (with Tim Robbins, John Turturro, and Jodie Foster) the film is a snapshot of a moment in New York, — 1964 in the Bronx, to be precise. What could be a slice of life film set amidst the youth-centricity that defined the civil rights movement era, Corners quickly takes a sharp turn towards the low-budget crime drama genre, unfolding in a frenzied 24-hour span.

 

Dir. Tony Bill, 1987, 35mm, 90 min

With marionette opening act!

 

She’s been hiding for years, but she hasn’t forgotten about you. Once an inspiration to adventurous kids across the globe, and once a staple of local weekend television (KTLA Channel 5, you old devil), Pippi Longstocking was the redhead on the move. She lived at Villa Villekulla with her horse and monkey — but she was a citizen of the world, deftly guiding the hands of her neighbors Tommy and Annika through the shining prism of a fearless childhood.

 

Spun from the brilliant mind of author Astrid Lindgren and immortalized onscreen by the eternally cute Inger Nilsson, Pippi continues to bring a kaleidoscope of joy to our collective heart, no matter what ages we might be. Once she’s with you, she’s with you always — and this ultra-rare 16mm presentation of PIPPI IN THE SOUTH SEAS (1970) gives Los Angeles a chance to relive the magic of this heart-soaring, nonconformist creation.

Jonathan Lethem presents “Bigger Than

New York Times best-selling author and MacArthur fellow Jonathan Lethem joins us to present Nicholas Ray’s Bigger Than Life. A family drama with a Hitchcockian streak, Bigger Than Life is an Eisenhower-era paranoia-laden CinemaScope masterpiece, based on a piece in the New Yorker authored by medical writer Berton Roueché. Careening between melodrama, sci-fi, and horror — Lethem calls the film “Douglas Sirk meets Oliver Sacks” — this poignant and precise vision of ‘50s American life and the fantasy/nightmare of the nuclear family plays like speculative fiction, with medical experiments acting as a harbinger for wild fears of fascism, state power, and class shame. Ray expertly teases out the precariousness inherent in the explicit conventionality of James Mason, Barbara Rush, and Walter Matthau’s characters — a school teacher, his wife, and his best friend, respectively. The group who, as Lethem notes, “rest uneasily on their bed of normality,” feel their quotidian lives violently upended in a Shining-esque trip down a post-WWII Americana rabbit hole.

 

The film will be followed by a conversation with Lethem.

An Evening With…Robert Kirkman

May 26, 2016, 7:30 PM - 12:00 AM

Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead comics series and the AMC series phenom that bears its name, joins us for the latest edition of the Film Independent at LACMA’s An Evening With… series, in which creators and actors discuss their influences and careers to date. The series has included writer/actress/producer Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project), TV series showrunner Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Arrow), comedian and actress Sarah Silverman, and the screenwriter and director James Toback. It’s an apt time for Kirkman to look back on his works so far, now that he’s making the move from basic cable to premium cable with his newest effort, Outcast, an adaptation of the 2014 series he invented for Image Comics with artist Paul Azaceta. As he did with Dead, Kirkman demystifies genre by making plot a real-life concern—that is to say, by following people who are by no means heroic and simply out to survive, but rather strive proudly to save the world. The notion, which comes from Richard Matheson’s novella I Am Legend, is still a radical idea in comics. But Kirkman has employed it from the beginning of his career, which started with the intense self-published superhero parody Battle Pope and extended to his Invincible, which was a meta-look at the lineage of the superhuman, taking as its center the scion of a beloved hero beginning his own career and the scrutiny under which he operates. This all led to The Walking Dead, the zombie opus which details the unraveling of society and the struggles of regular folks to keep their wits about them—and their brains in their heads. Kirkman will chat about the comics and series for which he’s best known, as well as other stories that examine the perquisites of heroism

Has it only been two years since quiet-craving new parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) Radner steeled themselves to battle with their noise-loving nextdoor neigh-bros of the Delta Psi Beta frat house, a squad of party boys led by the irrepressible Teddy (Zac Efron)? It has been, and with his follow-up to the hit 2014 frat vs. pram comedy, Nicholas Stoller has Mac and Kelly about to leave the neighborhood, with the imminent birth of their second child. They get a plea for help from, of all people, Teddy. A new group of invaders has drawn a line in the sand—the Kappa Kappa Nu Sorority, run by Shelby (Chloë Grace Moretz)—and the boys of Delta Psi Beta, now threatened, turn to their old victims for help in continuing the hilariously infantile struggle for supremacy of the block. Stoller is no stranger to extending storylines; he directed Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek, as well as The Five-Year Engagement; he’ll discuss his comedy of territorial imperative onstage following the screening.

Neighbors 2 Sorority Rising STILL

Free Screening, Weiner

May 16, 2016, 7:30 PM - 12:00 AM

Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

Website | Email | 323 857-6000

Co-presented by The New York Times Film Club

 

One of the most talked about films at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival was the documentary Weiner, by directors Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg. Kriegman and Steinberg start their film by catching New York congressman Anthony Weiner at his peak, a crusading liberal politician with the kind of media savvy and quick, coruscating wit that would make him a natural for higher office. His high-profile marriage to celebrated Hilary Clinton aide-de-camp Huma Abedin only burnishes his image. The filmmakers also happen to be aboard as Weiner’s image crashes loudly with the infamous sexual selfies that ruined his profile. The directors trail Weiner through his recovery attempt, his 2013 campaign for Mayor of New York City, which began as a likely slam-dunk for the candidate, as his legendary potential still offered him a possible return to prominence. That is, until his compulsions for chasing women outside his marriage surfaced—again! It’s a fascinating portrait of tenacity—or is it delusion—as Kriegman himself asks their beleaguered subject why he is still granting the directors access as his self-destructive behavior continues to detonate in ways that redefine self-immolation. Filmmakers Kriegman and Steinberg will be available for a Q&A after the screening.
