Tracking Shots: This Week in Film
The Incomparable Rose Hartman Quad Cinema Saturday to Sunday
It is a gorgeously shot, sharply edited portrait of photographer Hartman, who in the 1970s and 1980s haunted Studio 54. Hartman made a career of capturing fashion designers, models, musicians, and movie stars in half-guarded moments, somewhere between unaware and aping for the lens.
Angelika Film Center Monday to Tuesday
Twentieth century’s most awesome leader, a man whose history includes two world wars! But what happens when the story being told feels emotionally false and factually bogus? Churchill，a new drama starring the great Brian Cox, is so full of movie cliches that it，s sometimes hard not to giggle — and one should never laugh at the prime minister.
Handsome Devil Cinema Village Thursday to Friday
The Ireland of the teen film Handsome Devil is a place where young boys are encouraged to do only one thing: play rugby. If rugby isn，t your thing, or if you dig things that aren，t rugby-related, you’re immediately dismissed as gay. That，s unfortunately the case for the main character~ ginger-haired Ned. Indeed，it’s more like a coming of age film than a comedy.
