Forget Sundance! The real hub for film buffs is Pierce College Puyallup.
Through March, Pierce will host a new film series highlighting the most critically acclaimed films of the 20th century. The Homage to Great Directors Film Series is hosted by professor Jamie Fitzgerald and guarantees you’ll see your favorites in a new light, and maybe see a few you’ve always wanted to see.
Free tickets are available in C210 in the College Center. All films will be shown in the new Arts and Allied Health Theater.
Refreshments will be provided.
• Noon, Jan. 26 – Psycho
This psychological thriller has become the most renowned horror film of all time. Hitchcock’s unique directing style draws the viewer into the plot, skillfully framing the emotion and intensity of every scene for optimum suspense. One thing is certain: this classic will chill to the bone.
• 5 p.m., Feb. 7 – Fargo
Experts of dark comedy, the Coen Brothers have produced many critically acclaimed films, among which “Fargo” is the most recognized. An excellent blend of mystery and intrigue, the film captivates its viewers with vibrant characters and subtle irony as the plot develops into an unforgettable sequence of events.
• Noon, Feb. 23 – The Killing
With skillful imagery that is both spontaneous and deliberate, Kubrick’s “The Killing” depicts an inventive take on the film noir genre. The film provides a lineup of characters both despicable and compelling as schemes develop and fall apart in a masterful plot of deceit.
• 5 p.m., March 9 – Citizen Kane
Often considered one of the greatest films of all time, “Citizen Kane” has established its place as a highly influential and remarkable work of art. Welles’ style leaves his audience in a constant state of anticipation, creating a heightened sense of awareness with his viewers.
