Two For the Road (20th Century-Fox, 1967)

While on a road trip, an unhappy couple recall other trips taken over the years. Do the recollections help heal the broken marriage, or just fuel it falling further apart?  We will have to see.  Audrey Hepburn (My Fair Lady, Wait Until Dark) and Albert Finney (Tom Jones) star and Stanley Donen (Singin’ in the Rain, Charade) directed.  The wonderful music for the film was provided by Henry Mancini.  Color, 111 minutes.

In the Mood For Love (Paradise Films, 2000)

The crowning achievement of film auteur Kar-Wai Wong.  A kaleidoscope of colors and music fills this tale of two hallway-crossed lovers that form the deepest of connections over several years despite both being married to others.  Starring international superstars Tony Leung (Hard Boiled, Marvel’s Shang-Chi) and Maggie Cheung (Irma Vep, Heroic Trio), this film will make you fall in love at the movies. Often argued to be one of the best photographed films ever made, the cinematography by Christopher Doyle is something that must be seen on the big screen.  The Library of Congress presents this work in a beautiful, original, untouched 35mm print.
