The tragic fire that broke out at the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on April 15th destroying its iconic spire and reducing its ancient wooden roof to ash has sparked a wave of sympathy and emotion across the world.

The French cathedral, which dates back more than 850 years, will be rebuilt, “more beautiful than before” declared French President Emmanuel Macron. Reconstruction of Notre-Dame will take many years, and is going to be a huge collective effort.

DOUBLE FEATURE!

California Split
Robert Altman, US, 1974, 35mm, 108 min.
This freewheeling buddy picture finds Gould once again teaming up with American auteur Robert Altman, this time opposite George Segal. Gould and Segal are gamblers who don’t know when to stop. Ending up in Reno, they go for the big money, but it proves to be unfulfilling. Based on the real life gambling addiction of writer Joseph Walsh, California Split is Altman fully untethered, allowing the chemistry between the two leads to shine.

While 1969’s Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice is notable for its groundbreaking commentary on the self-help and free love movements of the hippie era, I Love My…Wife takes a decidedly more retrograde turn. With a wife he is no longer attracted to – along with a newborn and mother-in-law occupying his home – Richard Burrows (Elliott Gould) begins a series of affairs that threaten his marriage.

The first manned mission to Mars turns out to be a hoax in this tense conspiracy-filled thriller. When three unwitting astronauts are mysteriously relocated to a deserted military base moments before launch, they become embroiled in a high stakes game of public deception and media manipulation. Journalist Robert Caulfield (Elliott Gould) must uncover the truth before it ends his career or possibly his life. Capricorn One is perhaps one of the more underrated of the pantheon of conspiracy films that stormed theaters in the 1970s.
