SECRET MEMBER SCREENING, Tuesday 3/28
KIZUMONOGATARI PARTS 1-2-3, April 11 & 12
“Intimate and otherworldly.” – Nick Newman, The Film Stage
“Bursting with joy, and it’s impossible not to get swept up in it.” – Jason Bailey, Flavorwire
“Back home, these kids might be considered betas by small-town jocks and snooty froshes. Contemporary Color turns them into next-gen Bowies.” – David Fear, Rolling Stone
“A brilliant show. A series of mesmerizing spectacles brought to life.” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire
“‘Contemporary Color’ is a gift to audiences everywhere, a spectacular kinetic pinwheel of a movie that whisks us away from big issues to celebrate an exceptional creative collaboration.” – Peter DeBruge, Variety
Come on down! We didn’t get as much snow as expected so we’ll be here showing THE LURE at 5:30, 7:30 & 9:30.
To honor International Women’s Day, the Brattle is offering free admission to women at all shows today, Wednesday, March 8. This includes the final screenings in part 1 of our yearlong tribute to women in cinema, The Women Who Built Hollywood, with screenings of BOMBSHELL (7:30) and MAN’S CASTLE (6:00), plus our late show of the all-female helmed horror anthology XX (9:30).
“A genre-defying film that blends elements of musicals, horror, romance, and fantasy into a contemporary fairy tale that celebrates the animalistic, the feminine, and the intimate intersections between the two.” – Katie Rife, AV Club
“Holding it all together is an exploration – always intriguing if not always coherent – of the myths and puzzles of female sexuality.” – A. O. Scott, New York Times
“If you’re only going to see one sexed-up, cannibal-mermaid disco musical this year, make sure it’s ‘The Lure.'” – Sean Burns, The ARTery
“Unsettling and oneiric, The Lure is a film of black humor, grungy debauchery, and ravishingly surreal eroticism done with an idiom that blends high camp with unexpected pathos.” – Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
