Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -October 10, 2015


 

 

Aubrey Reuben

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!

October 10, 2015

 
 
Three actors are in an Incomprehensible play for 65 minutes. They are a husband (Clive Owen), a wife (Kelly Reilly) and her friend (Eve Best), who sit on armchairs, couches and divans, sipping tea, pouring brandy and smoking cigarettes. The two women had lived together before, and Best comes to visit the married couple. Although, they are not known for their singing ability, they sing lines from popular songs badly. A revival of the Off-Broadway play seen in 1983 is now given a production on Broadway. Old Times, byHarold Pinter, at the American Airlines Theatre, is a bizarre play, which does not improve the reputation of three fine actors, directed by Douglas Hodge. The dialogue is unintelligible and excruciating, and to charge Broadway prices for this nonsense is appalling. Clive Own is best known as a film star in his debut on Broadway, and I am sure he will attract his fans to see this play.

 
When the curtain rises, the scene is a sleazy motel in the Mojave Desert. May (Nina Arianda) is sitting on a bed. Eddie (Sam Rockwell) is standing center stage, and The Old Man, who comments on the scene occasionally, (Gordon Joseph Weiss) is sitting on an armchair. Eddie has driven thousands of miles to get May, his former lover, back. Thus begins Fool For Love, by Sam Shepard, at the Samuel J. Friedman, on Broadway. In 1983, it appeared Off-Broadway. May and Eddie kiss passionately, and then she hits him in the groin, where he falls to the floor. He falls to the floor again, when a young man Martin (Tom Pelphrey) knocks him down, when he arrives for a date with May. Eddie remains lying on the floor. It is a convoluted story, which is ridiculous and unbelievable. It also has a plot of Eddie's unseen recent lover following him to burn his car. By the way, it must be mentioned that Rockwell shows tremendous skill with a lasso. In 75 minutes, the play is insufferable, and four fine actors are wasted under Daniel Aukin's direction.

 
Off-Broadway, Daddy Long Legs, music and lyrics by Paul Gordon, book by John Caird, at the Davenport Theatre, is a modest, two character musical, about a man (Paul Alexander Nolan), who sponsors the college education of an orphan (Megan McGinnis). The only requirement is that she writes to him each month, and not enquire who he is. The two singers have excellent voices, and the music and lyrics are pleasant. 

 
Clever Little Lies, by Joe DiPietro, at the Westside Theatre, opens on Monday, October 12. My comments will appear in my next week's column.

 
The press preview of Andrea del Sarto : The Renaissance Workshop in Action, October 7-January 10, 2016 at the Frick Collection, 1East 70th St, is a superb exhibition. The drawings display a wonderful technique and craftsmanship. Andrea del Sarto (1486-1530) used drawings in red and black chalk as part of his creative process, leading to magnificent paintings. The Frick Collection, in this marvelous exhibition, proves his genius. Do not miss it. 

 
We were invited to an exhibition Color Thru My Lens, by Marge Neu, at Swifty's, 1007 Lexington Ave. The color photographs were displayed in the small, back room of the restaurant. The photographs were colorful and impressive.

 
Rick's Cabaret, 50 West 33rd St, celebrated 20 years on Nasdaq, with a VIP reception, with  cocktails and delicious hors d'oeuvres. The cabaret girls also posed for photographs and performed. President/CEO of  RCI Hospitality Holdings, Inc. Eric Langan arrived from Texas to cut the cake. It was a delightful event

The 53rd New York Film Festival September 25-October 14
 continued its press screenings with Steve Jobs, by Danny Boyle, USA, 2015. It is in three parts, showing the launch of three different computers, of which two were failures and the last one was a success. The film also focuses on his relationship with the mother (Katherine Waterston) of his daughter (played at different ages by three separate actresses).  He was a driven personality, unlikable and arrogant, but played brilliantly by Michael Fassbender. Kate Winslet. Seth Rogen. Jeff Daniels and Michael Stuhlbarg have supporting roles, and all give excellent performances. It is certainly one of the best films in the festival. A Q & A with the cast and creative team followed the press screening.
 

 
Bridge of Spies, by Steven Spielberg, USA, 2015, is a terrific film about the 1962 prisoner exchange of Russian spy Rudolph Abel (Mark Rylance) for two Americans, one of whom was Francis Gary Powers, who was shot down in his U-2 reconnaissance plane. The Abel's lawyer James B. Donovan (Tom Hanks) arranged the swap. The film is a wonderful recreation of the fascinating story, that holds the viewer's attention from beginning to end. Hanks and Rylance give splendid performances. It is one of the highlights of the festival.

Brooklyn, by John Crowley, UK/Ireland/Canada, 2015, is a lovely, sentimental film, about a young Irish girl, Eilis (a luminous Saoirse Ronan), emigrating to the United States from Ireland. All the loneliness of an immigrant is shown in her face; but also her determination to succeed, working in a department store by day and studying bookkeeping at night at Brooklyn College. It is a superb performance. When her sister dies, she returns home, and meets a wealthy man (Domhnall Gleeson), who wants to marry her. However, she has already secretly married a sweet, kind, young man of Italian descent (Emory Cohen), and we have a romantic, happy ending. It is one of the best films of the festival, a pure delight. A Q & A with the cast and creative team followed the press screening.

 
A commercial film 45 Years, by Andrew Haigh, UK. 2015, is a marvelous portrait of a married couple (Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay), living in retirement in a small village in Norfolk, waiting to celebrate their 45 years of marriage. Suddenly, the husband receives a letter telling him the frozen body of a former girlfriend has been discovered on a Swiss mountain, where she disappeared 50 years ago, while they were on a holiday trip. This awakens tensions in the couple's marriage. The two actors give brilliant performances, and the film leaves a profound impression on the viewer. Every gesture, every movement, and every frustration between the married couple is expressed wonderfully. It is a magnificent film.

 
Another commercial film Trash, by Stephen Daldry, UK/Brazil/Germany, 2015, is a remarkable film, about three youngsters (Rickson Tevis, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein), working in a trash heap in Rio de Janeiro. When one finds a wallet, containing incriminating evidence against a corrupt politcian. they are pursued by brutal policemen. It is a riveting, exciting tale, and an indictment against political corruption, police brutality, horrible poverty and injustice. The three child actors scramble up walls, climb through windows, run on narrow ledges, and do a phenomenal job as actors. It is a marvelous film
