All That Jazz

  • Bob Fosse
  • 1979
  • USA
  • DCP
  • 104 minutes
Bob Fosse’s penultimate film is a self-portrait (with music and dance) of the artist at work, editing a film as he preps a Broadway musical, juggles girlfriends and ex-wives and a beloved daughter, and joyously self-destructs. Roy Scheider is absolutely perfect as Joe, the Fosse figure, and All That Jazz is a wonder—funny, harrowing, hallucinatory, touching, and 100 percent exhilarating.

Drums Along the Mohawk

  • John Ford
  • 1939
  • USA
  • DCP
  • 104 minutes
In 1939, the great John Ford made Stagecoach, Young Mr. Lincoln, and this Eastern Western, his first Technicolor film, set in New York’s Mohawk Valley on the eve of the American Revolution, with Henry Fonda and Claudette Colbert as a newly married couple facing up to the rigors of frontier life.

The King of Comedy

  • Martin Scorsese
  • 1983
  • USA
  • 109 minutes

Introduction by J. Hoberman on August 24

In Martin Scorsese’s iconic cringe comedy, Robert De Niro stars as Rupert Pupkin, a cheerful but deranged comic who aspires to get his big break on the late-night talk show hosted by Jerry Langford (Jerry Lewis).

Leave Her to Heaven

  • John M. Stahl
  • 1945
  • USA
  • 110 minutes

Cinematography by Leon Shamroy

Leon Shamroy’s Oscar-winning work on Leave Her to Heaven marks a historically inspired attempt at a kind-of squaring of the circle: shooting a gripping noir—with Gene Tierney as a murderously selfish femme fatale—in vibrantly beautiful Technicolor.

Two for the Road

  • Stanley Donen
  • 1967
  • USA
  • DCP
  • 111 minutes
Stanley Donen’s 1967 film from Frederic Raphael’s script follows a long-married couple (Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn) on a road trip through the south of France and a bittersweet journey through their past. This now classic film, with a score by Henry Mancini, has a tone unlike that of any other: comic, melancholy, and effervescent throughout.

Wild River

  • Elia Kazan
  • 1960
  • USA
  • DCP
  • 110 minutes
Montgomery Clift is a government worker who comes down from Washington to bring progress to the Tennessee Valley, Lee Remick is the young widow he falls in love with, and Jo Van Fleet is her grandmother, the old matriarch who won’t give up her plot of land. Elia Kazan made many remarkable films, but this Depression-era drama, shot in CinemaScope and vivid color, might be his greatest.
