BUDAPEST NOIR
2017, Menemsha Films, 95 min, Dir: Éva Gárdos

Budapest, 1936. The Hungarian prime minister returns from Nazi Germany in a coffin, his dream of making Hungary into a fascist state snuffed out - for now. Meanwhile crime reporter Zsigmond Gordon (Krisztián Kolovratnik), a cynic who thinks he has seen it all, stumbles upon an unusual killing in a seedy part of the city, the victim being a young woman with only a Jewish prayer book in her purse. An official stonewall blocks his investigation, provoking Gordon to solve the puzzle of her demise. With the help of Krisztina (Reka Tenki), a beautiful photographer who once broke his heart, Gordon pursues his own investigation into Budapest's dark underbelly - a world of pornography, boxers, brothels and Communist cells - all the way to the highest echelons of power.


TWO WEEKS IN ANOTHER TOWN
1962, Warner Bros. , 107 min, Dir: Vincente Minnelli

Kirk Douglas, Edward G. Robinson and Cyd Charisse star in this tale of a failing movie star who travels to a shoot in Rome to salvage his life and his career. Jack Andrus (Douglas) enjoyed a meteoric rise to stardom, but he now seems to be in an equally dramatic tailspin both personally and professionally after a bout of alcoholism, a bitter divorce and a stay in a mental hospital. Now, when he's asked to work on a film in Italy by director Maurice Kruger (Robinson), Andrus quickly accepts - without realizing how much this one film will change his life. Based on the novel by Irwin Shaw.
