Pulp: a Film About Life, Death &

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

7:30pm

“Moving, funny, sweet, eccentric — and the reaction from the audience, well, it’s the kind of thing that makes you feel like you are smiling with your heart. Two people who I spoke with were moved to tears. How many rock docs can you say that about?” — Richard Metzger, Dangerous Minds

Pulp, best known stateside for their deliriously infectious anthem “Common People”, are one of the quintessential Britpop bands, so distinctly carrying their Northern UK heritage on their sleeve that to know them is to become an honorary citizen of their hometown of Sheffield. Taking that to heart, co-director Florian Habicht teams up with highly charismatic Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker to produce both a concert film chronicling the band’s 2012 farewell Sheffield show, and a “family album” of Sheffield regulars: the Common People. Habicht gets these vox populists to wax fondly about what the town means to them, and how Pulp has woven itself into the very fabric of the town’s lasting culture. “Cocker’s knack for keeping it real, for drawing from regular experience and feeding back into it, is the film’s effortlessly realised QED. If you ever had your head invaded for days on end by Pulp’s ‘Common People’, prepare to have it reoccupied, this time with a portrait gallery for company. If you haven’t, there could hardly be a more irresistible invitation to join the party.” (New Zealand Int’l Film Festival)

Dir. Florian Habicht, 2014, DCP, 90 min.

SINGIN' IN THE RAIN

Aero Theatre

1328 Montana Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90403

7:30pm

On a short list of the greatest screen musicals ever made, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN began with legendary MGM producer Arthur Freed giving screenwriters Betty Comden and Adolph Green a stack of songs he'd written early in his career (with partner Nacio Herb Brown) - including "Broadway Melody," "You Are My Lucky Star" and the title song - with the simple request to weave a story around the numbers. What emerged was a sublime marriage of song and dance, innocence and nostalgia, heart-tugging romance and surreal comedy (especially in co-star Donald O'Connor's show-stopping "Make 'Em Laugh" routine). Co-director Kelly shines as silent-movie idol Don Lockwood, whose career (and leading lady, hilariously played by Jean Hagen) are imperiled by the coming of sound - until he hooks up with lovely ingenue Debbie Reynolds. The brilliant supporting cast includes Millard Mitchell, Douglas Fowley and the great Cyd Charisse, whose long-legged "Broadway Melody" ballet with Kelly nearly steals the show!
