*****QUEER THURSDAYS*****

PHILADELPHIA

Drama

Jonathan Demme

US, 1993, 125′, English

When a man with HIV is fired by his law firm because of his condition, he hires a homophobic small time lawyer as the only willing advocate for a wrongful dismissal suit.

The first Hollywood big-budget, big-star film to tackle the issues of HIV/AIDS, and also homophobia, it signaled a shift in Hollywood films toward more realistic depictions of people in the LGBT community.

“An extremely well-made message picture about tolerance, justice and discrimination is pitched at mainstream audiences, befitting its position as the first major Hollywood film to directly tackle the disease.”
Todd McCarthy, Variety

“It’s less like a film by Demme than the best of Frank Capra. It is not just canny, corny and blatantly patriotic, but compassionate, compelling and emotionally devastating.”
Rita Kempley, Washington Post

“Tom Hanks is superb as a smart lawyer dying of AIDS who sues his former employers with the help of Denzel Washington, who matches Hanks’ work note for note.”
Eleanor O’Sullivan, Asbury Park Press

THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY

Adventure – Drama – Western

Sergio Leone

Italy, 1966, 178′, English | Italian | Spanish with English subtitles

“A bounty hunting scam joins two men in an uneasy alliance against a third in a race to find a fortune in gold buried in a remote cemetery.” – MUBI

“Tre män är var för sig på jakt efter 200.000 dollar som försvunnit från en militärtransport under inbördeskriget.” – Svensk Filmdatabas

“…THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY remains the high point of both Leone’s career and the spaghetti western in general.” – Michael Glover Smith, Cine-File

“A vast empty Western landscape. The camera pans across it. Then the shot slides onto a sunburned, desperate face. The long shot has become a closeup without a cut, revealing that the landscape was not empty but occupied by a desperado very close to us.” – Roger Ebert

DUEL

Action – Thriller

Steven Spielberg

US, 1971, 90′, English

A travelling salesman is out on the road minding his business. Somewhere in the Mojave desert a 40 ton truck appears, and for no good reason, starts terrorizing and stalking him.
A young Steven Spielberg set his mark with this minimalist action thriller of unrelenting suspense. Originally a TV movie, it proved so popular that it was expanded into cinematic release, and has since become a definite cult favorite.

“This simple premise — a killer truck stalks a driver — becomes the basis for an exceptionally fraught and well- made suspense film.”
Mick LaSalle, San Fransisco Chronicle

“A shoestring marvel.”
Kevin Maher, Times

“Simply a rivetingly murderous game of cat and mouse that keeps you on the edge of your seat.”
Tom Milne, Time Out

“Duel is a gripping, almost painfully suspenseful rocket ride of a movie; perhaps not Spielberg’s best work—that must almost certainly wait for the eighties and nineties—but surely one of the half-dozen best movies ever made for TV.”
Stephen King
