“One of the masters of early German cinema, G.W Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo). And perhaps none of his female stars shone brighter than Kansas native and onetime Ziegfeld girl Louise Brooks…, Sensationally modern, the film follows the downward spiral of the fiery, brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu, whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she comes in contact with. Daring and stylish, Pandora’s Box is one of silent cinema’s great masterworks and a testament to Brook’s dazzling individuality.” Criterion Collection.

“Alfred Hitchcock’s audaciously intricate melodrama concerns an acrophobic detective (James Stewart) who spurns the attentions of a fashion illustrator (Barbara Bel Geddes) to pursue his frustrated passion for a chilly, suicidal platinum-blond woman of mystery (Kim Novak)… Novak’s famous transformations, Stewart’s haunted fabrications, and Bel Geddes’s unrequited longing are all tethered to the whim of another master plotter, the detective’s long-lost friend (Tom Helmore), whose marital suspicions are the MacGuffin with which Hitchcock unfurls his own obsessions: the tragic difference between friendship and love, the seductive power of sex from suspense, danger, and death.” The New Yorker

The Smalls were a legendary Canadian musical phenomenon. After suddenly saying “Goodbye Forever” at the peak of their success they reformed for one last redemptive tour-closing the loop internally as bandmates, estranged friends, and with their long-adoring fans. From rekindled beginnings to a sold-out tour coast to coast, this film explores the journey of memory, age, and power of music to erase the years of player and fan alike.
