Lisa Schaefer on why she chose The Thin Man as her staff select film.
The Thin Man plays Sunday, March 16 at 7:00pm.
A detective story with a sense of humor? A married couple who show their affection through witty banter? Booze gracing the screen in almost every scene? Sold! From the first time I ever saw The Thin Man, it has been one of my absolute favorite movies. I have yet to find another film that can top the amazingness of this film nor any screen couple who can outshine William Powell and Myrna Loy.

Loft Cinema General Manager Jason Denholm on why he chose Daisies as his staff select film.
“Daisies” is a film which is difficult to convey in words. The descriptions most commonly associated with reviews of the film – “new-wave”, “absurdist”, “anarchic”, “Surrealist”, “Dada”, “feminist”, “nihilistic” – are accurate but incomplete. “Daisies” is a collage where the whole adds up to more than the sum of its parts. The films impact is sensual, it is the brilliant succession of images, sounds, and colors - and their juxtapositions - rather than straight narration that conveys what is “Daisies” ostensible subject: avarice and lust. But this is where “Daisies” proves to be such a powerful film – it is sharp and concise without being didactic, and multiple readings of the film and its ‘meaning’ are not only possible, they are inevitable. Some of these are contradictory, and so much the better. It is a film to be experienced with the senses, let it wash over you, and don’t try to understand it too quickly.
Daisies plays on Sunday, February 23, 2014 at 7:00pm
