Perfect for adventurous movie-goers and lovers of fine cinema, Scottsdale Cinematheque showcases new independent, foreign and art films that are not screened at other Valley theaters. New films are introduced each month, with multiple screenings on selected weekends, all with reserved seating. Curated by Scottsdale International Film Festival Director Amy Ettinger, the Cinematheque series also will include occasional guest appearances and live-video discussions with filmmakers, when available.
Based on the true story “Un assassin au-dessus de tout soupcon” by Yvan Stefanovitch, this is the chilling chronicle of notorious serial killer Alain Lamare (here renamed Franck Neuhart). In a truly mordant twist, while Lamare was terrorizing France in the winter of 1978–79, he was also an outstanding gendarme tasked with apprehending the killer. His victims were all young women, whom he stalked while trying to start a love affair with his pretty cleaning lady. Anger follows in the footsteps of Friedkin and Fincher in divesting all glamour from crime, instead showing the dead ends that vex the crime fighters and the dark souls that plague the criminals. The evocative period soundtrack includes Johnny Thunders and The Velvet Underground.
