“Cinephile catnip!” (Manohla Dargis, New York Times)
Our films are piquantly peripatetic this season, celebrating Ingrid Bergman’s 100th birthday, reflecting NCMA exhibitions on Elizabethan portraiture and Ansel Adams landscapes, transporting us to the North Carolina mountains of the early 20th century, and basking in the forbidden lust and corruption of midcentury Mexican noir.
