Terence Davies

Terence Davies

March 29
One of the many remarkable things about the cinematic ravishments of Terence Davies is how they reconcile two seemingly disparate artistic tendencies—the intellectual, high modern tradition and the emotional, popular tradition—as if there was no contradiction inherent in this at all.
Buñuel in France

Buñuel in France

March 30 to April 6
After being exiled from his native Spain, a foray to Hollywood and New York, and proving himself within the confines of the Mexican film industry, cinema’s arch-dissident, Luis Buñuel, at last found full creative freedom in the country where he had had his first succès de scandale 35 years earlier: France.
Welcome to Metrograph:<br>A to Z

Welcome to Metrograph:
A to Z

April 1 to June 1
A year-long, alphabetically ordered series that offers films we consider must-sees. The only self-imposed restriction: one film per director.
The Singularity

The Singularity

April 1 to April 10
This program contemplates the ever-encroaching future moment when artificial superintelligence will overtake human intelligence—known as the coming Singularity—with films spanning ninety years of moving image history.
Universal in the '70s: Part Two

Universal in the '70s: Part Two

April 6 to May 1
In this visionary decade, Universal fostered young upstarts like George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, imported Miloš Forman for his U.S. debut, and gave a free hand to old pros like Hitchcock and Don Siegel (and his understudy Clint Eastwood).
Joan Tewkesbury

Joan Tewkesbury

April 8 to April 9
If only for having penned two of Robert Altman’s peak-period ‘70s masterworks— including the decade-defining Nashville—Joan Tewkesbury would have more than earned a place in film history.
Letterman: The Last Giant of Late Night

Letterman: The Last Giant of Late Night

April 10 to April 11
'Letterman: The Last Giant of Late Night' book signing with author Jason Zinoman on April 11. A David Letterman film series is an admittedly perverse idea since he rarely appeared in movies and did not like to act, even on his own talk shows. But he did make a few exceptions.
James Gray

James Gray

April 12 to April 15
James Gray is one of the foremost contemporary practitioners of the classically constructed narrative drama, an art that he is a passionate and articulate advocate for. Metrograph will host an evening with Gray discussing The Lost City of Z, showing in 35mm in a sneak preview, which provides a welcome pretext to revisit his extraordinary filmography.
Too Much and Not the Mood

Too Much and Not the Mood

April 13 to April 15
Too Much and Not the Mood is a collection of essays-meets-prose poetry, inspired by the women in my life, my family, and of course film—the movies that taught me how to see the stuff that’s off to the side or the patterns that build if watching movies becomes, in large part, a practice of paying attention, kind of.
Welcome to Metrograph: John Ford Edition

Welcome to Metrograph: John Ford Edition

April 15 to April 16
The rule for ‘Welcome to Metrograph’ title selection was no repeats of any director, which was all well and good until we got to John Ford, who cranked out stone-cold masterpieces like it was going out of style.
