THE FILM SOCIETY OF LINCOLN CENTER ANNOUNCED TODAY THE LINEUP FOR THE 14TH EDITION OF FILM COMMENT SELECTS

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today the lineup for the upcoming 14th edition of Film Comment magazine’s essential and eclectic feast of cinephilia, Film Comment Selects, taking place from February 17-27, 2014. The annual festival will present 22 discoveries and rediscoveries, 17 of them New York premieres, and nine without U.S. distribution, handpicked by the magazine’s editors after scouring the international festival circuit in 2013.

Film Comment magazine’s editor-in-chief, Gavin Smith said, “Every year the process of programming Film Comment Selects is an adventure, not that different in some ways from the editing of the magazine every two months. This year is particularly special for us because we’ve finally been able to bring in six films (all on 35mm!) from the early Seventies, the mid Eighties, and the early part of the last decade that we’ve dreamed of showing on the big screen for some time—and they’re every bit as thrilling as the films by new discoveries and familiar faces from all over the world that are our bread and butter—films that in eight cases will be coming back (but you want to see them before everyone else, right?) and nine others that won’t be (so this is your only chance to see them). We’re privileged to share these with our audience of art-film devotees, genre fanatics, open-minded cinephiles, and movie lovers of every stripe. And once again, we guarantee: there’s something for everyone.”

This year’s mind-melting lineup covers the entire cinematic spectrum from genre movies to art-house whatsits to long-unseen revivals and new films by Hong Sang-soo, whose Opening Night selection Our Sunhi, won the director’s prize in Locarno and is the 15th feature from the South Korean master, Bernardo Bertolucci, who returns with his first Italian-language feature in 32 years, Me and You, which will screen on Closing Night, and Together and Lilya 4-ever director Lukas Moodysson, back with an energetic rough and tumble story of three rebellious teenage girls who form a punk rock band in We are the Best! Another filmmaker to premiere new work is Lasse Hallström with The Hypnotist, an engrossing, chilly Nordic noir about a psychologist who uses hypnotism to help solve a horrific crime. This also marks a return for Hallström to his native tongue for the first time in 25 years.

Another highlight from this year’s lineup is the thrilling seven-episode television series Top of the Lake, directed by Jane Campion and Garth Davis. Mad Men’s Elizabeth Moss plays a detective who has returned to the bleak rural New Zealand town where she grew up in order to spend time with her dying mother, and is recruited by the local police officer (David Wenham) to investigate what is at the least a case of statutory rape. All seven episodes will screen back to back!

The series will also offer some classics, not to be missed on the big screen, including a “Healthcare Mayhem” Film Comment Double Feature that pairs up Blake Edwards’s The Carey Treatment, starring James Coburn and The Hospital, written by Paddy Chayevsky and starring George C. Scott and Diana Rigg; the rarely screened 1983 Raúl Ruiz masterpiece City of Pirates, a two-film focus on early works by Barbara director Christian Petzold consisting of Ghost and Wolfsburg, plus Jeremy Irons and Ben Kingsley in the 1983 film version of Pinter’s Betrayal.

Tickets will be on sale both at the box office and on www.FilmLinc.com to members on Tuesday, January 28 and to the general public on Thursday, January 30. Tickets are $13 for General Public, $9 for Student/Senior and $8 for Film Society Members. Take advantage of a Three film Package! $30 for General Public, $24 for Student/Senior and $21 for Members. Film Comment magazine subscribers will also be able to take advantage of a $10 ticket! The Film Comment Double Feature, included in the lineup, offers two films for the price of one – $13 for General Public, $9 for Student/Senior and $8 for Film Society Members!

All screenings will take place at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater, 165 West 65th Street (between Broadway and Amsterdam). Visit www.FilmLinc.com for additional information.
