White losers rejoice: Fletch celebrates 25 years

Mostly noir

And mostly masterpieces, at the Museum of Fine Arts, June 2-13.
The definition of film noir has become elastic through the years. Of the five movies included in the MFA’s series “Rialto’s Best of British Film Noir” only two, strictly speaking, are noirs: Brighton Rock, Graham Greene & Terence Rattigan’s adaptation of Greene’s novel, and The Third Man, Greene’s most famous collaboration with the filmmaker Carol Reed.

Boston LGBT Film Festival 2010

Shades of gay
Not so long ago, your average gay film was a rom-com about sated protagonists searching for something more meaningful than empty hedonism. In this year’s Boston Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Film Festival, however, the focus has shifted from jaded promiscuity to the erotic tension of first, fumbling encounters.

Runaway talent

Heroine chic

Hollywood cashes in on girl power
One of the more satisfying moments in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) occurs when 13-year-old Hermione (Emma Watson) unloads a right hook that staggers the villainous Malfoy. “That felt good,” she says, pleased with herself. “Not good,” offers Ron (Rupert Grint). “Brilliant!”

Ray-Manzarek

Interview: Ray Manzarek of the Doors

The return of the Lizard King, sort of
It’s been nearly 40 years since the death of Jim Morrison, but the surviving members of the Doors, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and percussionist John Densmore have kept soldiering on, playing in various reformations of the ground-breaking band.  The meteoric rise of the band is chronicled in the new documentary, When You’re Strange.

Love is stronger than death at Jewishfilm.2010
They aren’t the most auspicious of couplings: an Arab and Jewish girl in Nazi-occupied Tunis in 1942; a butcher and his apprentice in Haredi Jerusalem; the survivor of a terrorist bombing and a stranger who might be a guardian angel.

Boston Turkish Film Festival 2010

In a scene in Çagan Irmak's IN DARKNESS (2009; April 3 at 3 pm), one of several provocative films in this year's Boston Turkish Film Festival at the Museum of Fine Arts, a woman explains to a TV interviewer that her political party is neither for Shari'a — extremist Islamic rule — nor for right-wing military coups.

Boston Underground Film Festival 2010

BUFF 2010 pays homage to cinematic fromage
The Boston Underground Film Festival has a knack for showing you things you've never seen before (not to mention things you can never un-see, such as the sentient penis jackhammering its way through sheetrock in last year's headlining Bad Biology ). BUFF 2010 proves no exception, starting with the exquisitely weird opening-night entry, LOVE EXPOSURE (2008; March 25 at 7 pm).
