Coming to the Cocteau

We have a wild week of movies coming to the Jean Cocteau Cinema this weekend.  Something old, something new, something sick and twisted and depraved, and Shakespeare.

From the Bard and the Royal Shakespeare Company, we have HENRY IV, Part 1.  Prince Hal, Falstaff, great stuff.

Something new is THE DOUBLE, with Jesse Eisenberg:



Something old, the Jane Fonda/ Lee Marvin western comedy classic, CAT BALLOU.  A personal favorite.  Lee Marvin won his Oscar as Best Actor for his double role in the film, and Jane has seldom been lovelier (well, okay, maybe as Barbarella).  Stubby Kaye and Nat King Cole are on hand as well.  Rather than the trailer, here's a look at the scene where Lee Marvin arrives in town:



Our midnight movie (midnight begins at 11pm in Santa Fe) is John Water's notorious PINK FLAMINGOs.  With Divine.  (Not to be confused with Andy Devine).  And no, we will NOT offer special chocolate cupcakes for this one.  Or even pink flamingo cupcakes.

See you at the movies.

Prince Hal
Not sure what version of Henry IV you plan to show.

I really like the latest version with Tom Hiddleson (Loki) as Prince Hal, directed by Sam Rami. (The old BBC TV version with Robert Hardy [of Harry Potter and historian of longbows fame] is also good fun.)

(Hiddleson/Rami also did a very good verion of Henry V but it has to compete with Ser Lawrence and Ser Kenneth's versions - who directed Hiddleson in Thor.)

If only the BBC would provide the same armorer for Game of Thrones as it did for these films...

Often see a few touches from the Henry IV (1 & 2) and Henry V cycle in The Song of Ice and Fire...
