This is a free screening presented by Akron Film+Pixel. TABU is appearing on ten-best lists for this year, and this is an early chance to see it. Dinner and/or drinks at the Lockview (207 S. Main) afterward!
"A sweet, sustained swoon of a film that runs the gamut from deadpan social satire to guileless golden-age romance. On its own terms, the single most romantic thing I've seen in forever. Somehow both densely academic and dumbly sensual in its charms, 'Tabu' is singularly beguiling, and beguilingly singular. All that, and it features a Portuguese-language version of The Ronettes' 'Be My Baby' that will bring tears to your eyes."
Guy Lodge, IN CONTENTION
"Outstanding. An event. Has a range encompassing gentle melancholy, bittersweet melancholy and heart-breaking melancholy — but also lust and rage and mad, mad love."
David Hudson, THE DAILY
“Dryly absurd and deeply romantic… A living, breathing demonstration of cinephilia in action. For Mr. Gomes, a former film critic, the extinct styles and moods of classic cinema are not fodder for imitation or parody but more like communal dream material, to be mined for something new and mysterious."
Dennis Lim, THE NEW YORK TIMES
