EVOLUTION OF A CRIMINAL
Director: 
Darius Clark Monroe
Country: 
USA
Year: 
2014

In EVOLUTION OF A CRIMINAL, filmmaker Darius Clark Monroe asks this very question—about himself. After seeing his mother and stepfather struggle to make ends meet while living outside of Houston, Texas, Monroe decided to help them by robbing a bank with two friends. In the film, Monroe interviews his family members, close friends and mentors who recount the stages of his transformation, going from a joyous childhood to the moment he realized the severity of his family’s financial problems, and how their struggles changed his outlook on society and his life as a whole.

Returning to his neighborhood several years after the crime, Monroe creates an incredibly intimate and personal journey of reflection and forgiveness while beautifully examining lower class struggles, the desperation of a teen under pressure, and the emotional impact that rippled in the aftermath of that day.

As part of our 100th Anniversary Celebration we are bringing back the concert video STOP MAKING SENSE. This film has a history with the Clinton; I've heard many stories of dancing in the aisles and other activities less legal that I won't mention here.

“Has there ever been a live concert film as vibrant or as brilliantly realised? I don’t think so.” – San Francisco Chronicle

“‘Stop Making Sense’ is close to perfection. – The New Yorker 

“Greatest concert movie ever…” - Rolling Stone

“This is a rock concert film that looks and sounds like no other.”  - The New York Times

Stop Making Sense
Director: 
Jonathan Demme
Country: 
USA
Year: 
1984
Runtime: 
88 minutes

35mm Print!!

J. Hailey writes:

David Byrne walks onto the stage and does a solo "Psycho Killer." Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz join him for two more songs. The crew is busy, still setting up. Then, three more musicians and two back-up singers join the band. Everybody sings, plays, harmonizes, dances, and runs. They change instruments and clothes. Bryne appears in the Big Suit. The backdrop is often black, but sometimes it displays words, images, or children's drawings. The band cooks for 18 songs, the lyrics are clear, the house rocks. In this concert film, the Talking Heads hardly talk, don't stop, and always make sense.

Special Admission

Friday--$9 in advance; $12 at the door; Sunday--$7 in advance; $10 at the door.
