Directed by Jean-Luc Godard (U.S. 1960) 90 min. 35 MM. With Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean Seberg, Daniel BoulangerGodard burst onto the film scene with this jazzy, free-form and sexy homage to the American film genres that inspired him. With its lack of polish, surplus of attitude, anything-goes crime narrative and effervescent young stars, Breathless helped launch the French New Wave and ensured cinema would never be the same. In French with English subtitles.

September 12 Run Lola Run (Germany) 81 mins.aka Lola Rennt (English subtitles)Directed by Tom TykwerWith Moritz Bleibtreu, Franka Potente, et al.Hugelypopular as an immensely entertaining escape into Berlin, this movie is stillplaying on the mainland after months of sell-out crowds. The plot is assimple as it gets: Lola (Potente) runs (without Nikes) to save herboyfriend's life. But hot new director Tykwer plays fast and free with thelinear drive, opening us up to the way the smallest incidents can alter ourdestinies. In other words, all is never quite as straight-ahead as it seems.Call it fate, fortune, luck, or simply the director's editorial choices, theplot of this film is, in every way, the real subject of our interest. True,everybody loves the punk attitude of Lola: she easily embodies the newEurope, wild and passionate, youthful and driven to get what she wants. Butthis is no study in Euro-symbolism, no way. Run Loa Runs is a clever andengaging movie that celebrates all possibilities. Just do it.
November 21 Twin Falls Idaho (USA) 110 mins.Directed by Michael PolishWith Michael Polish, Mark Polish, Michele Hicks, Jon Gries, PatrickBauchau, Garrett Morris, Lesley Ann Warren.Heard about these body doublesyet? Twin brothers Michael and Mark Polish direct and star in this filmabout the inescapable travails of Siamese twins, Blake and Francis Falls.Daring to answer the musical question, 'how do they do it?' the film hasthem eventually hiring a hooker named Penny. Unaccustomed as she is to, er,being watched, Penny passes on her work duty. But when one twin gets sick,Penny stays on to assist as nursemaid, all the while falling for the healthyguy/head. Naturally (?), themes as dependency, freedom, jealousy, andindividual agency emerge. The cinematography is lush and the psychologicalrealism is effective, but the Polish brothers themselves steal the show.Wrapping our own heads around how they pulled off the uni-spectacle in thefirst place is exciting enough. And any movie featuring a cameo performanceby Saturday night favourite, Garrett Morris (as a minister named Jesus),holds lots of promise. It's hard to know what the Polish boys could do next:a comic version of Dead Ringers? 041b061a72
