LISZTOMANIA
1975, Warner Bros., 103 min, UK, Dir: Ken Russell

Director Ken Russell is at his outrageous, surreal best in this biopic of Franz Liszt (played by The Who’s Roger Daltrey), an aural, visual and sexual feast for all the senses. Thrill to the progressive-rock score by Rick Wakeman (of Yes), which somehow incorporates rock, Liszt and Wagner in all their majesty. Pop-culture references abound as Russell equates Liszt with the music superstars of the day - and don’t miss the giant penises!


IMAGINE
1972, Eagle Rock Entertainment, 68 min, USA, Dir: Steve Gebhardt, John Lennon, Yoko Ono

A window into the lives of two of the world’s most beloved artists, IMAGINE depicts John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s artistic processes as they compose the classic albums “Imagine” and “Fly” at their home in 1971. With a killer soundtrack and rare studio footage, this made-for-television gem is rarely screened in theaters, and its impressive surround sound offers a chance for Lennon and Ono fans to hear the music in a way that cannot be duplicated at home. Don’t just imagine this unique celebration of love, dreams and music - see it on the big screen!


SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL
1968, ABKCO Films, 110 min, UK, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Jean-Luc Godard’s SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL stands as one of the pivotal and, arguably, most controversial films of the legendary provocateur. The film alternates between reflections on contemporary politics and social issues of the late 1960s while providing an unprecedented view of The Rolling Stones’ creative process in the recording studio. Its infamous premiere at the 1968 London Film Festival was highlighted by Jean-Luc Godard physically assaulting the producer on stage. Witness the premiere of the pristine 4K restoration, presented in its original aspect ratio, as supervised by Tony Richmond, the film’s cinematographer.
