Spring Dreams: The Cinema of Huang Ji & Yang Lina

Wang Bing

Wang Bing

November 17 to November 24
The films of Wang Bing look after those left behind by the much-publicized story of China’s 21st century prosperity—the migrant workers traveling to the big cities and the rural poor barely getting by—but they sternly discourage the touristic eye or casual, cheap “compassion.”
Darius Khondji

Darius Khondji

November 19 to November 26
Through the years Khondji has worked with talents that include David Fincher, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, Wong-Kar Wai, and James Gray, and while his work for each is as distinct as the worlds they create, he brings to every film a compositional genius and a peerless attention to minute qualities of atmosphere, gifts which allow him to pick and choose his collaborators.

Holidays at Metrograph

December 1 to December 8
With so many naughty and nice seasonal movies to choose from, we’ve made an annual tradition of showing the best, and this year we’ve heaped up plenty of seasonal goodies under our tree, from warm-and-cozy silver screen standards to modern masterworks—because chestnuts roasting on an open fire are nice, but there’s no substitute for the glow of the cinema screen.

In the Year of the Grifter

In the Year of the Grifter

December 14 to December 22
America and the world have gotten older but no wiser, and yesteryear’s snake oil salesmen and false prophets seeking actual profits give way to a new breed of fakers, art world hustlers like Anna Delvey and born-rich real estate swindlers who turn a long history of bankruptcies into a campaign for public office.
