The Master, the sixth film from 42-year-old writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson, affirms his position as the foremost filmmaking talent of his generation. Fierce and ferociously funny, The Master is a great movie, the best of the year so far, and a new American classic.  Written, directed, acted, shot, edited and scored with a bracing vibrancy that restores your faith in film as an art form, The Master is nirvana for movie lovers. Anderson mixes sounds and images into a dark, dazzling music that is all his own.

As the fictional story of Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman, never finer), a 1950s cult leader who mentors disturbed World War II Navy vet Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix in the performance of his career), The Masterdoesn't flinch at taking on the business of religion. Scientology? You be the judge. No matter. It's the human element that bleeds onscreen. Acting doesn't get better or go deeper than the performances delivered by Hoffman and Phoenix.





         Rated R, 100 minutes

In a tasty financial thriller written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki, Richard Gere plays Robert Miller, an investment titan who is standing at the precipice (though no one knows it). Playing this luxe silver fox, Gere has never been more likable or alive on screen. His friendly dry charm works for the film in fascinating ways, since Robert, as we learn, is a world-class sleazebag.

He lies and sleeps around, he commits major financial fraud, he slinks away from a car accident that was all his fault - and the film makes no apologies for any of this behavior. Yet we're torn between wanting to see him pay for his transgressions and get away with them. That, as Hitchcock knew well, is the way a true thriller works.




      Rated PG-13, 99 minutes
Coming Soon                              

Samsara is a whole other type of movie experience, one where there is no dialogue, just a wordless melange of brilliant images from around the world with a pulsating musical score that takes you on a ride that's unlike anything you might imagine.

Filmed over four years in breathtaking 70 millimeter from the team that made the similar 1992 Baraka, Samsara- a Tibetan word for "the ever turning wheel of life" - glides over, under and around 25 countries as it casts its spell using time-lapse cinematography, slow motion and aerial views.

        Not Rated, 60 minutes                                                                      
Tuesday, October 16                              
6:30 pm  ~ Tickets $10

Filmed during four of six sold out performances in June 2012, Dear Pina, showcases Vermont's best choreography and presents Hannah Dennison's latest work, a dance/theater tribute to Pina Bausch, world-renowned German choreographer, who died in 2009.
The piece is staged at Shelburne Farms' vast, historic Breeding Barn which is defined by soaring clerestories and an expansive dirt floor matching the grand scale of Bausch's radical artistry.
An ensemble of thirty dancers give an evocative performance rooted in each person's authentic emotions. The work combines traditional ensemble choreography with character-driven theatrical scenes, to explore themes of human relationships colored by passion, inspiration, and loss.
This breathtaking one hour film, directed and edited by Lukas Huffman, features stunning cinematography by Daniel Cojanu and Seth Neary, providing a propulsive visual experience that breaks narrative boundaries and reminds audiences of the richness and depths in their own lives.
