Jan. 27: 3 pm Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; 9:10 pm Pale Rider

This week we are presenting two films and both will be shown in the same one day!

Sunday afternoon, at three o’clock, we resume our Harry Potter series with the fourth movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It’s the only film in the series directed by Mike Newell, the director of Four Weddings and a Funeral.

A young wizard finds himself competing in a dangerous tournament between rival schools of magic, but he is distracted by recurring nightmares.

Starting with a frightening gallery of skulls out of which emerges a menacing snake, the first shots of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire“, directed by Mike Newell, are already tainting the atmosphere with an unusually disturbing darkness. Yes even by Hogwarts’ standards, there’s something quite unsettling in the opening flashback.” Sed. Dine

At 9:10, we will present Clint Eastwood’s third western as a director and his first film to be shown in competition at the Cannes Film Festival. Pale Rider is a tribute from Clint Eastwood to one of his favourite movies, George Stevens’ Shane.

A mysterious preacher protects a humble prospector village from a greedy mining company trying to encroach on their land.

”Clint Eastwood has by now become an actor whose moods and silences are so well known that the slightest suggestion will do to convey an emotion. No actor is more aware of his own instruments, and Eastwood demonstrates that in “Pale Rider,” Clint Eastwood is the director, and having directed himself in nine previous films, he understands so well how he works on the screen that the movie has a resonance that probably was not even there in the screenplay. ”Roger Ebert

” “Pale Rider” is a Western with such an aura, such an attitude and such a stance over the Western myth that it’s almost a miracle it could flirt with self-consciousness while never sinning by it. Clint Eastwood might be the only director still capable of such miracles. ” Sed. Dine
