Week of film classics returns to the Ken March 10

See McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Reservoir Dogs, Princess Mononoke, and more

An opium-smoking madame (Julie Christie) propositions a small-time gambler (Warren Beatty) in McCabe and Mrs. Miller.
An opium-smoking madame (Julie Christie) propositions a small-time gambler (Warren Beatty) in McCabe and Mrs. Miller.

For those whose knowledge of Warren Beatty doesn’t extend much beyond last week’s unparalleled round of egg on Oscar’s face, it’s time to put in an appearance at Landmark’s Ken Cinema for their latest installment of Week of Film Classics.

Place

Landmark Ken

4061 Adams Avenue, San Diego

Starting this Friday and running through Thursday, March 16, the Ken dusts off seven tried and true titles for their early spring drop of vintage cinema. Jim Henson’s Labyrinth opens the week, to which I say, “Enough!” Give the puppet show a rest. Next time try dazzling Bowie fans with a presentation of Julien Temple’s seldom revived (and infinitely superior) Absolute Beginners.

Next up, Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke and Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet. That takes us through Monday. Now that the weekend is over and the kids are back in school, it’s time to get down to basics: Billy Wilder’s Double Indemnity, Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, and a 25th Anniversary restoration of Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs.

“See it on the big screen!” It’s a term that should apply to all film, but none moreso than Robert Altman’s rimy whorehouse western McCabe and Mrs. Miller, starring Warren Beatty as tatty gambler John McCabe and Julie Christie as his opium-scented partner in prostitution.

No matter if your home screen is 3K, 4K, or OK DOKE, the textured veneer of cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond’s exquisitely languorous frames gets lost on TV every time. On a television viewing, the final chase through the wintry woods is barely comprehensible; it looks like someone kicked the cord and the satellite reception went to snow. Trust me: this one is worth leaving the house for.

You’ll have four chances to see McCabe when it screens on March 16. Visit LandmarkTheatres.com for dates and times.

Comic Book Guy voice: Worst "Week of Film Classics" lineup ever.

March 8, 2017

You aren't kidding! Since when in PRINCESS MONONOKE a blanking classic??? And DOGS isn't a classic either! Cult movie, yes, NOT a classic.

March 14, 2017

I guess Seven Samurai might be alright though....

March 8, 2017

And "McCabe" is a fine film. At least there's no "Rocky Horror" or Tommy Wiseau crapola stinking things up.

March 9, 2017

All Im saying is that, they could have chosen much better films.

March 9, 2017

"McCabe and Mrs. Miller" and "Romeo and Juliet" are both gorgeous to look at and insanely romantic. I have always been too scared to go see "Reservoir Dogs." "Seven Samurai" is required viewing, but not more than once, in my opinion.

March 8, 2017

I'm with you. I got SS the first time.

March 9, 2017

The late great Vilmos Zsigmond (Deliverance) shot MCCABE.

March 14, 2017

Pasqualino De Santis was cinematographer on Romeo and Juliet. He also shot Death in Venice and The Damned (two of my faves).
