Auteurs Gone Wild


At Anthology Film Archives in New York, David Phelps has curated a nifty new series called Auteurs Gone Wild which looks at the Crème de la crème of classic Hollywood’s best filmmakers and their most atypical works. Included are Hitchcock, Lubitsch, Chaplin, Cukor, Capra and a whole lot more.

As the title suggests, this series is sort of the fun house mirror version of vulgar cinema. We’re going to be providing coverage of the whole program, which runs from March 20th-30th. Please let us know if you check it out.
