The Austin Film Society Summer Free-For-All

June 16: Mother and Son
(D: Alexander Sokurov, 1997)

Sokurov, Andrei Tarkovsky's heir to the spiritual throne of Russia's poetic cinema, explores the final day of a dying mother and devoted son.

June 23: The Tall T
(D: Budd Boetticher, 1957)

Another one-of-a-kind Western from the Budd Boetticher/Randolph Scott team. A stagecoach is captured and held ransom by outlaws.

June 30: Two English Girls
(D: Francois Truffaut, 1972)

One of Truffaut's most underrated films, this painstakingly beautiful and heartbreaking tale of a ménage à trois was based on a novel by the same author who penned Jules and Jim.

July 7: The Edge of Eternity
(D: Don Siegel, 1959)

Deputy Sheriff Cornel Wilde tracks down killers to the heights and depths of the Grand Canyon.

July 14: My Name Is Julia Ross
(D: Joseph Lewis, 1945)

The sublime Nina Foch becomes the prisoner of a crazy family.

July 21: A Time to Live and a Time to Die
(D: Hou Hsaio-hsien, 1985)

This early masterpiece from Taiwan's most important director draws from the filmmaker's own childhood to form a powerful and deeply focused depiction of childhood and adolescence.

July 28: Some Came Running
(D: Vincente Minnelli, 1959)

Although famed for his musicals, Minnelli's melodramas were every bit as stylish and masterful. This tale of disillusionment in small town America features what is arguably the late Frank Sinatra's greatest performance ever.

Aug 4: Silences of the Palace
(D: Moufida Tiati, 1994)

This surprise hit of the 1994 Cannes Film Festival depicts the world of women who served in the palaces of Tunisia during the time of the beys, the country's last Kings.

Aug 11: Second Circle
(D: Aleksandr Sokhurov, 1990)

A man tries to come to terms with his father's death and deals with the mundane details of his burial in a society cut off from spiritual values.

Aug 18: It's Always Fair Weather
(D: Gene Kelly, 1955)

Kelly and Donen's follow-up to the mega-hit On the Town is actually the superior musical.

- Jerry Johnson
