Something Cinematic 

When: Fri., Aug. 8 2014
YYou know those awesome montages of old movie clips shown during the Oscars? The guy who makes those is actually a serious and curious filmmaker. His name is Chuck Workman and he’s got a new documentary out which premieres tonight at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. What is Cinema? tackles what is obviously a very broad and complicated question. To answer it, Workman filmed interviews with some of the greatest living filmmakers (David Lynch among them) and intercut their responses with archival interviews with deceased directors (including Alfred Hitchcock and Robert Bresson) and spliced in a whole bunch of notable film clips. The film’s a must-watch for cinephiles. Tix are $9 for tonight’s showing at 5:15 and tomorrow’s screening at 9:15. (Sam Allard)
