Citizenfour

After years researching her film about our increasingly surveillance nation, MacArthur Genius Fellowship and Pulitzer Prize recipient Laura Poitras began receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by U.S. intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. (U.S., 2014, 118m, DCP, Radius TWC)

Art and Craft

“Perversely satisfying… The art world deserves him.” –NY Times

Legendary art forger Mark Landis has mimicked the works of Picasso, the 15th-century masters and even Walt Disney. But he’s not in it for money: his delivery of his works is a kind of performance art, as he donates his pieces to museums around the country. When he dupes a tenacious amateur investigator, it seems that the show is approaching its finale. Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman’s hugely entertaining doc is as a cat-and-mouse art caper that delves into authenticity and obsession (U.S., 2014, 89m)

Keep on Keepin' On

From producer Quincy Jones and director Al Hicks comes this inspiring tribute to Clark “CT” Terry, a living legend whose career spans more than seven decades. Terry is one of jazz’s most prolific and beloved musicians: he counts Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, and Duke Ellington among his many admirers, and Dizzy Gillespie called him “the greatest jazz trumpet player on earth.” Hicks explores Terry’s personal approach to jazz, his dedication to teaching, and his friendship with a young blind piano player named Justin Kauflin. At 90 years old, and suffering from the debilitating effects of diabetes, Terry continues to share his wisdom with the next generation. When times get tough, he tells his students, just keep on keepin’ on. (U.S., 2014, 86m)

Listen Up Phillip

“I can’t think of a recent movie that stages with as much joy and wonder the sense of living a life that becomes the stuff of art.” –New Yorker
Alex Ross Perry’s complex, intimate, and highly idiosyncratic comedy follows the volatile Philip (Jason Schwartzman) as he awaits the publication of his sure-to-succeed second novel. He hates the city, his relationship with his photographer girlfriend Ashley (Elisabeth Moss) is crumbling and he doesn’t care to publicize his own work. But when Philip's idol Ike (Jonathan Pryce) offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, Philip finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject: himself. (U.S., 2014, 108m, DCP, Tribeca Film)
