Salome

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

8:00pm

“Here is one half of what has emerged from Al Pacino’s late-blooming obsession with Wilde’s tale of transgressive sexuality. This film records the play’s 2006 L.A. staging: hardly standard live-event fare, it’s closer to Mike Figgis or Michael Almereyda’s experiments in giving perilously archaic texts a scholarly redesign, shot by Miss Julie’s Benoît Delhomme in dynamic close-ups that capture the players thinking their way through Wilde’s tricky, arguably misogynist scenario. A pre-stardom Jessica Chastain makes Salome a tragically self-assured headhunter, punished for knowing exactly what she wants.” — Mike McCahill, The Guardian
Dir. Al Pacino, 2013, 81 min.
