Sadie Benning became well-known in the early 1990s for making brilliant low-tech videos—urgent and moving confessionals documenting their own teenaged sensibility. For most of the current decade, they’ve concentrated on gallery-based projects, often using found photographic imagery as the base material for works that ultimately combine elements of sculpture and painting into a unique hybrid. For 2020, Benning returns to the Wex with a new work of striking scale and ambition. Making its world premiere, Pain Thing is a single…

$30 – $35

In La femme au couteau, a young man traumatized by his strict African upbringing returns home after a long stay in Europe. Once home, he has difficulty readjusting to the place where he grew up and experiences debilitating sexual inhibition, made manifest by recurring visions of a woman brandishing a huge knife.

From Cameroon, the allegorical Muna Moto follows a young couple—Ngando and Ndomé—who are in love but are prevented by Ndomé’s family from getting married because Ngando cannot afford the customary dowry. When Ndomé becomes pregnant, a marriage with Ngando’s older uncle, whose past three marriages failed to produce children, is quickly arranged. The film is a thinly veiled polemic on the dowry system, the country’s colonial past, and political corruption. (89 mins., 4K DCP)

From the 1930s onward, the home movie camera has played a part in many families’ lives, and Hollywood moviemakers are no exception. Over the years, the Academy Film Archive has received dozens of directors’ collections that have included home movies. Sometimes they’re like the ones you’d find in any family—records of weddings, birthday parties, and holidays. But in some cases, the filmmaker took their home movie camera with them to work, either on set or on location. The result is…

“Pop quiz, hotshot. There’s a bomb on a bus. Once the bus goes 50 miles an hour, the bomb is armed. If it drops below 50, it blows up. What do you do?” Dennis Hopper’s psychopathic Howard Payne sums up the entire plot of Speed to cop Keanu Reeves, impromptu bus driver Sandra Bullock, and the audience in one of the 1990s’ most pared-down, straight-ahead action-thrillers. Don’t ask, just see the Oscar-winner on the big screen in this new restoration!…

$5 – $9

When the Technicolor corporation shut down the dye-transfer printing line at its Hollywood laboratory in 1974, a large collection of film was in need of a home. The collection consisted of single reels of titles that Technicolor was release-printing for Hollywood studios. If prints were made after the initial release, the reference reel could be consulted to make sure the color palette of the new print matched the look of the original release. It was known within Technicolor as “the…

One of seven austere westerns starring Randolph Scott and directed by one-time Ohio State football player Budd Boetticher, Ride Lonesome is perhaps the bleakest of the bunch.

Little does Best know that he’s only bait for Brigade’s brother Frank (Lee Van Cleef), who’s greatly wronged the bounty hunter in the past.

In I’m No Angel she stars as sideshow singer Tira, who makes extra bank by helping rob male customers at her shows. She eventually works her way to New York, where she sets her sights on a rich mark with an uptight fiancée. Trying to break Tira’s hold on his friend, Cary Grant instead falls for the…
