The Trial

directed by Orson Welles in English starring Anthony Perkins, Jeanne Moreau, Romy Schneider (1962)

A gripping adaptation of Franz Kafka’s tale of Joseph K (Anthony Perkins in an outstanding performance), a man arrested for a crime that is never explained to him. Though his neighbors all scorn him, no one seems willing or able to help him, not even his mysterious defense attorney. Filmed in an abandoned train station in Paris, the strange setting perfectly captured the bizarre and nightmarish world of Kafka’s mythical totalitarian state.

Confidential Report aka Mr. Arkadin [35mm]

directed by Orson Welles in English starring Orson Welles, Peter van Eyck, Michael Redgrave (1955)

Welles’s Mr. Arkadin — the story of an elusive billionaire who hires an American smuggler to investigate his past, leading to a dizzying descent into a cold-war landscape of a Europe trying to erase its history — is a famously mercurial production existing in multiple different versions, thanks to Welles being banned from the editing room. We will screen the European cut of the film, entitled Confidential Report.

F for Fake [35mm]

directed by Orson Welles in English starring Orson Welles, Oja Kodar, Joseph Cotten (1973)

In Orson Welles’s free-form documentary F for Fake, the legendary filmmaker (and self-described charlatan) gleefully engages the central preoccupation of his career—the tenuous line between truth and illusion, art and lies.

Beginning with portraits of world-renowned art forger Elmyr de Hory and his equally devious biographer, Clifford Irving, Welles embarks on a dizzying cinematic journey that simultaneously exposes and revels in fakery and fakers of all stripes—not the least of whom is Welles himself.

Pandora and the Flying Dutchman [35mm]

directed by Albert Lewin in English starring James Mason, Ava Gardner (1952)

Ava Gardner plays a free-spirited singer who finds herself attracted to an enigmatic Dutch painter (James Mason), who arrives aboard a yacht that seems oddly devoid of a crew. As it turns out, he is the real Flying Dutchman of legend, cursed to sail the seven seas forever, until he finds one who will offer herself in sacrifice for him. Neither performer ever looked better, and this is arguably the best performance of Gardner’s career.

Georgy Girl [35mm]

directed by Silvio Narizzano in English starring Lynn Redgrave, James Mason, Alan Bates (1966)

Lynn Redgrave garnered international attention in her role as a girl named Georgy, who strives to capture some of the glamorous life of her swinging London roommate while also dodging the attention of her father’s wealthy employer (James Mason). The catchy title song was nominated for an Oscar and became a radio hit unto itself!
