    "The title of Never Look Away is deliciously ironic: This is one of the most mesmerizing, compulsively watchable films in theaters right now. "
    - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
    "Never Look Away makes an eloquent case for art as an expression of hope, a way of searching for meaning in chaos. "
    - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
    "Never Look Away is an often moving, thoughtful drama about the correlations between personal experience, politics and art. "
    - Demetrios Matheou, Screen International
    "Donnersmarck has crafted an unparalleled masterpiece, a three-plus hour epic that leaves you wanting more. "
    - Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
    "In a larger sense, the film is about the postwar generation of Germans desperate for a new direction, and when Henckel von Donnersmarck focuses on the artmaking, it’s powerful — a persuasive statement about the transformative power of representation. "
    - Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
    "The German Oscar nominee for best foreign-language film is a triumphant return form to filmmaker Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, a treatise on love and war and the limitless reach of art that, even when it trips up, is never less than exhilarating. "

    - Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
    "[A] masterful work of archival research. "
    - Nate Jones, New York Magazine/Vulture
    "Apollo 11 is foremost a tale of technology and humanity; It’s more about a country that needed a figurative lift, and got it with a literal one. "
    - Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post
    "Apollo 11 is a cool, meticulous, at times enthralling documentary that captures the Apollo 11 flight in its entirety through raw footage drawn from the NASA vaults. "
    - Owen Gleiberman, Variety
    "Much of the footage in Apollo 11 is, by virtue of both access and proper preservation, utterly breathtaking. "

Clash of the Titans (1981)

starts March 22

FREE SCREENING that is part of the Springfield Greene County Library “One Read Project”. Be sure to get there early and “dress like an Ancient Greek” for the photo booth! Admission is free.

Summary: The eschewing of modern optical effects techniques in favor of the classic stop-motion animation work of special effects legend Ray Harryhausen was a delightful highlight of this action adventure that attempted to give Greek mythology the Star Wars (1977) treatment. Harry Hamlin stars as Perseus, a mortal who, due to the interference of the mighty god Zeus (Laurence Olivier), finds himself in the city of Joppa, far away from his island home. There, he falls in love with Andromeda (Judi Bowker), an imprisoned princess. To free her, win her hand, and thus half of the kingdom, Perseus solves a riddle, but Joppa’s enraged ruler orders Andromeda fed to the Kraken, a towering sea monster that’s the last of the powerful Titans. In his quest to save Andromeda, Perseus must endure a series of trials with the help of the winged horse Pegasus and a friendly playwright, Ammon (Burgess Meredith). His ultimate goal is to secure the head of the grotesque Gorgon named Medusa and use it to turn the Kraken into stone, but dangers await, including the hideously deformed Calibos (Neil McCarthy).

Staff Picks: Y Tu Mamá También (2002)

starts March 29

Staff Picks Series
Every month a member of the Moxie staff picks a film that impacted their lives and we put it up on the big screen.
March’s pick was made by Derek Dunn.
“Cuarón’s loving portrait of rural Mexico is told through the viewpoints of two young men full of youthful abandon and a woman dealing with her own newly-realized mortality. This juxtaposition infuses the film with a unique perspective that brings to life the fleeting beauty of a country and culture too-often neglected by Western audiences. The film is full of rough edges, and that brash and unrefined approach make me love the final product even more.”
