Top Gun (1986)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

Directed by Tony Scott
With Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Anthony Edwards, Val Kilmer, Meg Ryan, Tom Skerritt
Rated PG, 110 minutes, DCP

Tom Cruise emerged as a Hollywood superstar with his role as Maverick, a hotshot pilot sent to train at Top Gun, the Navy’s elite flight school. There, he earns the ire of his fellow pilots for his risky behavior, including the equally cocky Iceman (Val Kilmer), and falls for a by-the-book instructor (Kelly McGillis). An ode to testosterone-laden American exceptionalism, Top Gun became the top box office draw of 1986.

Bicycle Thieves (Ladri di biciclette)(1948)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

Hailed as one of the greatest movies ever made, the Academy Award®–winning Bicycle Thieves defined an era in cinema. In poverty-stricken postwar Rome, a man is on his first day of a new job that offers hope of salvation for his desperate family when his bicycle, which he needs for his work, is stolen. With his young son in tow, he sets off to track down the thief. Simple in construction and profoundly rich in human insight, Bicycle Thieves embodies the greatest strengths of the Italian neorealist movement: emotional clarity, social rectitude, and brutal honesty.

The first documentary to ever win the top award at the Berlin International Film Festival, Fire at Sea takes place in Lampedusa, a once peaceful Mediterranean island that has become a major entry point for African refugees into Europe. There we meet Samuele, a 12-year-old boy who lives simply, climbing rocks by the shore and playing with his slingshot.

La La Land<h4>New at the Browning</h4>

Similar to Michel Hazanavicius’ The Artist (2011), this musical reanimates and modernizes a genre of yesteryear Hollywood to self-examine Hollywood. Appropriating largely from outside Hollywood to do so, La La Land channels the work of French director Jacques Demy (see, e.g., The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) for La La Land’s story and The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967) for its score) with nods to mid-century evergreens like Singin' in the Rain (1952).

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone star as bottom-rung entertainers looking to make it big in Los Angeles, the former as an idealistic jazz pianist and the latter as a self-doubting actress and writer. They fall in and out of love while soft-shoeing on the sunlit streets of Los Angeles. As their careers begin to syncopate, the two dreamers reflect on the nature of aspirations, success, and contentment and give the film the gravitas required to be the awards-circuit leviathan it is.

The Exterminating Angel (El ángel exterminador) (1962)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

A group of high-society friends are invited to a mansion for dinner and inexplicably find themselves unable to leave in Luis Buñuel’s daring masterpiece The Exterminating Angel (El ángel exterminador). Made just one year after his international sensation Viridiana and regarded as the masterpiece of his Mexican period, this film returns to the director’s surrealist roots with moments full of eerie, comic absurdity coupled with a wicked takedown of the rituals and dependencies of the frivolous upper classes.

Weekend (1967)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

This scathing late-60s satire from Jean-Luc Godard is one of cinema’s great anarchic works. Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a bourgeois couple travel across the French countryside while civilization crashes and burns around them. Featuring a justly famous sequence in which the camera tracks along a seemingly endless traffic jam, and rich with historical and literary references, Weekend is a surreally funny and disturbing call for revolution, a depiction of society reverting to savagery, and—according to the credits—the end of cinema itself.

Black Girl (La noire de ... ) (1966)/Borom Sarret (1963)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

Ousmane Sembène, made his feature debut in 1966 with the brilliant and stirring Black Girl (La noire de ... ). Sembène transforms a deceptively simple plot—about a young Senegalese woman who moves to France to work for a wealthy white couple and finds that her life becomes a figurative and literal prison—into a complex, layered critique on the lingering colonialist mindset of a supposedly postcolonial world. Featuring a moving central performance by Mbissine Thérèse Diop, Black Girl is a harrowing human drama as well as a radical political statement—and one of the essential films of the '60s. Black Girl will be preceded by Sembène’s first film, Borom Sarret, a short piece focusing on the life of a cart driver in Dakar.

Pather Panchali (1955)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

With the release in 1955 of Satyajit Ray’s debut, Pather Panchali, an eloquent and important new cinematic voice made itself heard all over the world. A depiction of rural Bengali life in a style inspired by Italian neorealism, this naturalistic but poetic evocation of a number of years in the life of a family introduces us to both little Apu and, just as essentially, the women who will help shape him: his independent older sister, Durga; his harried mother, Sarbajaya, who, with her husband away, must hold the family together; and his kindly and mischievous elderly “auntie,” Indir—vivid, multifaceted characters all.

Aparajito (1956)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

Satyajit Ray had not planned to make a sequel to Pather Panchali, but after the film’s international success, he decided to continue Apu’s narrative. Aparajito picks up with Apu and his family having moved away from the country to live in the bustling holy city of Varanasi (then known as Benares). As Apu progresses from wide-eyed child to intellectually curious teenager, eventually studying in Kolkata, we witness his academic and moral education, as well as the growing complexity of his relationship with his mother. This tenderly expressive, often heart-wrenching film, which won three top prizes at the Venice Film Festival, including the Golden Lion, not only extends but also spiritually deepens the tale of Apu.

This extraordinary final chapter in Ray’s “Apu Trilogy” brings our protagonist’s journey full circle. Apu is now in his early 20s, out of college, and hoping to live as a writer. Alongside his professional ambitions, the film charts his romantic awakening, which occurs as the result of a most unlikely turn of events, and his eventual, fraught fatherhood. Featuring soon to be Ray regulars Soumitra Chatterjee and Sharmila Tagore in star-making performances, and demonstrating Ray’s ever more impressive skills as a crafter of pure cinematic imagery, Apur Sansar is a moving conclusion to this monumental trilogy.

He enlists the help of a possible eyewitness to the crime (Nancy Allen), who may be in danger herself, to uncover the truth. With its jolting stylistic flourishes, intricate plot, profoundly felt characterizations, and gritty evocation of early '80s Philadelphia, Blow Out is an American paranoia thriller unlike any other, as well as a devilish reflection on moviemaking.
