“A richly shadowed story, all the more telling for its streaks of comic light.” –The New Yorker
As he travels to accept an honorary degree, Professor Isak Borg—masterfully played by veteran director and Bergman mentor Victor Sjöström—is forced to face his past, come to terms with his faults, and make peace with the inevitability of his approaching death. Bergman uses flashbacks and fantasies, dreams and nightmares to dramatize one man’s remarkable voyage of self-discovery. This richly humane masterpiece, full of iconic imagery, is a treasure from the golden age of art-house cinema and one of the films that catapulted Ingmar Bergman to international acclaim. (Sweden, 1957, 90m)
Studio 54 was the epicenter of 70s hedonism--a place that not only redefined the nightclub, but also came to symbolize an entire era. Its co-owners, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, two friends from Brooklyn, seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly preside over a new kind of New York society. Now, 39 years after the velvet rope was first slung across the club's hallowed threshold, a feature documentary tells the real story behind the greatest club of all time.
PG-13for brief strong language
