Two Great Debut Features! Orson Welles was only 25 when he directed the masterpiece CITIZEN KANE, in which he plays a ruthless man who built a newspaper publishing empire. In Paul Thomas Anderson’s thrilling debut HARD EIGHT, seasoned professional gambler Philip Baker Hall takes on a young homeless John C. Reilly as his protégé.

CITIZEN KANE
1941, Warner Bros., 119 min, USA, Dir: Orson Welles
Orson Welles was only 25 when he directed this masterpiece, and it remains one of the most phenomenal motion pictures ever made. Welles also stars as Charles Foster Kane, a ruthless man who built a newspaper publishing empire and a character supposedly modeled after the real-life William Randolph Hearst. Trailblazing in so many respects, from Gregg Toland’s complex camera and lighting to Bernard Herrmann’s score to one of the finest ensemble casts (including Joseph Cotten, Everett Sloane and Agnes Moorehead) ever assembled. With an Academy Award-winning script by Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz.

35 mm!
HARD EIGHT
1996, Paramount, 102 min, USA, Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson
Seasoned professional gambler Sydney (Philip Baker Hall) takes on a young homeless man (John C. Reilly) as his protégé after learning of his struggles to raise money for his mother’s burial. Enveloped by the pulpy world of Reno casinos, both men soon become involved in murder, prostitution and kidnapping — vices that are all the more ominous once it becomes clear Sydney is hiding a devastating secret. Paul Thomas Anderson’s thrilling debut feature contains wonderful supporting performances by Gwyneth Paltrow and Samuel L. Jackson and offers a fresh, original study of themes that later occur throughout the director’s body of work.

Screening formats: DCP (CITIZEN KANE), 35mm (HARD EIGHT)
