Friday, October 2, 2015:

Friday Night Free Film: Safety Not Guaranteed (2012): Anyone tired of predictable Hollywood blowhardism needs to check out Safety Not Guaranteed. This little gem of a movie keeps the viewer guessing from pretty much the first frame, and one becomes so engaged and excited to see what’s around the next corner or in the next scene. Safety Not Guaranteed is briskly directed by Colin Trevorrow, and features a quirky script by Derek Connolly that’s warm-hearted but never self-conscious–quite an achievement. The premise: Darius (the splendidly low-key Aubrey Plaza) is a young, disaffected, and probably underpaid intern at Seattle magazine who’s plucked, along with another intern, Arnau (Karan Soni), to accompany staff writer Jeff (Jake Johnson) on what could be a story of a lifetime, or a crackpot dead-end. What the three journalists find on the windblown Washington coast is a man, Kenneth (Mark Duplass), who’s convinced he’s cracked the secret to time travel and seeks a companion for the adventure. Kenneth is also convinced he’s being followed by government agents. Yet somehow this oddball-in-the-woods bonds with young Darius, with each being intrigued, yet not quite trusting, the other. The story arc is well paced and never predictable, and involves subplots with the romantic lives of both Arnau and Jeff. Cameos by Mary Lynn Rajskub as the brisk magazine editor and Kristen Bell as a mysterious character from Kenneth’s past only serve to add richness to Safety Not Guaranteed. Bonus: It’s refreshing to see a movie set in Seattle and environs that’s actually filmed there, and not in nearby Vancouver, B.C. The extras include a making-of featurette that’s inspiring to anyone who loves grassroots movies and moviemaking. –A.T. Hurley, Amazon Review. MPAA Rating: R. Run Time: 86 min.

Friday Night Free Films are held the first and third Friday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Laura Beer Community Room.

And our Monthly Science Fiction Film is shown the second Friday of each month.

Enjoy films on our big screen!

Friday Night Free Film: A Most Wanted Man (2014): The late Philip Seymour Hoffman gives his final screen performance in this taut yet labyrinthine adaptation of John le Carré’s 2008 spy novel. In the years immediately following 9/11, Gunter Bachmann (Hoffman) is a counterterrorist expert based in Hamburg who operates as a rogue agent, independently of the Grenzschutzgruppe 9 der Bundespolizei (GSG-9). He specializes in bringing down jihadists, and as the story opens, he begins to fixate on a Chechen immigrant named Issa Karpov (Grigoriy Dobrygin), newly arrived in town. Issa’s motivations are initially unknown, but he befriends an American social worker (Rachel McAdams) who grows convinced of his harmlessness and sets about persuading Gunter of the same. Meanwhile, Gunter becomes aware of a palpable and imminent threat to national security that involves future jihad activity, and devises an ingenious plan that he hopes will both extinguish the threat and provide amnesty for Issa. The Americans and the GSG-9, however, learn of Gunter’s plot and express both impatience and a general skepticism about the scheme’s effectiveness. A Most Wanted Man premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Run Time: 122 min. MPAA Rating: R.

Friday Night Free Films are shown the first and third Friday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Laura Beer Community Room. Enjoy films on our big screen. Refreshments offered. Doors open at 6:45 p.m.
