THE TRIP TO ITALY (UK 2014; NR)
Tuesday Oct 14, Thursday Oct 16, Saturday Oct 18 @ 7:30PM; Sunday Oct 19 @ 1, 3:15PM.
Fresh from The Trip, bantering Brits Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon undertake another culinary odyssey, this time venturing far abroad to the rugged beauties of the Italian peninsula where they indulge in some truly exquisite-looking dinners and retrace the footsteps of Byron and Shelley; though Byron and Shelley never swapped snide career insults, impersonated Al Pacino, or riffed on scenes from The Godfather before oblivious Italian waitstaff. 108 min.
“Brydon and Coogan’s discourse over breakfast, lunch and dinner is captured with a casualness that makes the eavesdropping delicious”-LA Times.
“As funny as the first go-round, more beautiful to look at, and better conceived” – Hollywood Reporter.
Direction and screenplay: Michael Winterbottom
NOTE: CINEMA 320 WILL TAKE A ONE-WEEK BREAK, TUESDAY 10/21-SUNDAY 10/26. Carve those jack o’lanterns!

GORE VIDAL: THE UNITED STATES OF AMNESIA (USA 2014; NR)
A valedictory star turn by one of the wittiest and most provocative literary men America has ever produced, this devilishly watchable biography of Vidal plays against a backdrop of some of the most turbulent and controversial events in American history. You may be gored, but you will never be bored. “Heavily seasoned with epigrams worthy of Oscar Wilde, this entertaining documentary portrays Vidal as a pessimistic political prophet with streaks of paranoia and misanthropy, but a truth teller nonetheless”- NY Times. 83 min.
