Dartmouth Film Society Fall Series: 'The Return'
As The Hopkins Center celebrates 50 years of hosting the arts in Hanover this fall, the Dartmouth Film Society has assembled 20 films, vintage and contmeporary, with the common theme of past and present interweaving.
Rififi, blacklisted American director Jules Dassin's film noir masterpiece, is the story of four ex-cons who reunite for a last hurrah in Paris and features "one of the best heist sequences ever filmed." Korean movie director Hong Sang-soo's The Day He Arrives tells the comic story of a movie director who returns to a small town to visit an old friend, and over the course of three days, finds himself returning to the same bar, the same woman, and the same situations. Jonathan Demme's acclaimed documentary, Neil Young Journeys, follows the music legend to his childhood home to prepare for a concert at Toronto’s Massey Hall. This close-up view of the artist "is rich, rewarding and possibly one of the greatest concert films of all time."
The series kicks off Friday, September 21st. Personally, we are looking forward to revisiting Groundhog Day - yes, more Bill Murray!
