This Week

Continuing this week at the Cinematheque is the John Huston retrospective. I saw The Maltese Falcon last weekend (a film I've probably seen more than any other) and the print was good if not great. The experience of seeing the film in the theatre was well worth it. The other Huston films showing that I have seen and would recommend are: The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), Key Largo (1948), The Asphalt Jungle (1950), and The African Queen (1951). Others I'm interested in seeing are Beat the Devil (1954), Fat City (1972), and The Dead (1987), a James Joyce adaptation that was Huston's last film.

If you missed No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood, they are both playing at Cinecube. Also playing at Cinecube is Steve Buscemi's Interview (2007).
