PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE
2002, Park Circus, 95 min, USA, Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson

Adam Sandler gives one of the strongest, most nuanced performances of his career in his Golden Globe-nominated portrayal of Barry, the lonely, rage-filled owner of a novelty plunger company courted by shy, fellow troubled soul Lena (Emily Watson). Both beautifully romantic and tensely thrilling, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE is a surreal fever dream following Barry and Lena’s whirlwind love story as they battle a wide array of threats to their relationship, ranging from a violent phone-sex hotline “supervisor” (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to their own temperaments. Anderson won the Best Director award at Cannes in 2002 for his highly inventive, aesthetically gorgeous portrait of innocent love contrasted against a world of corruption. Edited by Leslie Jones.


MOONLIGHT
2016, A24, 111 min, Dir: Barry Jenkins

Director Barry Jenkins’ Oscar-winning coming-of-age story is told in three chapters, with a trio of actors (Alex R. Hibbert, Ashton Sanders and Trevante Rhodes) playing central character Chiron, a boy from Miami’s crime-ridden Liberty City neighborhood who survives a gauntlet of bullying with the support of some unexpected allies. Costarring Mahershala Ali, Janelle Monáe and Naomie Harris. Edited by Joi McMillon with Nat Sanders. “Its story may be sprinkled with drug dealers and addicts. But its message is clear: The world is richer and deeper and more complex than we ever imagined, and even its most troubled characters - just like us - are looking for love.” - Stephen Galloway, The Hollywood Reporter.


Screening format: 35mm (PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE), DCP (MOONLIGHT)
