Brimming with action while incisively examining the nature of truth, Rashomon is perhaps the finest film ever made about the philosophy of justice. Through an ingenious use of camera and flashbacks, Kurosawa reveals the complexities of human nature as four people recount different versions of the same story: the murder of a man and the rape of his wife.

The magnetic tenor Vittorio Grigolo takes on the tortured poet and unwitting adventurer of the title of Offenbach’s operatic masterpiece, in the Met’s wild, kaleidoscopic production. Soprano Hibla Gerzmava faces the operatic hurdle of singing all three heroines—each an idealized embodiment of some aspect of Hoffmann’s desire. Thomas Hampson portrays the shadowy Four Villains, and Yves Abel conducts the sparkling score. 226 minutes.
Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me (2014)
New at the Browning
Sunday, February 1, 2015, 2:00 PM
Directed by James Keach
Rated PG, 105 minutes, DCP
In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour across America including 151 spectacular sold out shows over a triumphant year and a half. What made this tour extraordinary was that Campbell had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and was advised to hang up his guitar and prepare for the inevitable. Instead, he and his wife went public with his diagnosis and announced that he would set out on a “Goodbye Tour.” The film documents this amazing journey as he and his family attempt to navigate the wildly unpredictable nature of Campbell’s progressing disease.
