Zentropa at the LACMA coming in February

Lars von Trier’s noir-soaked thriller casts postwar Germany as a Kafkaesque dreamscape haunted by “werewolves” (underground Nazi terrorists). Leopold Kessler, a young and idealistic American of German stock, returns to the old country and takes a civilian job as a sleeping-car conductor for the mysterious Zentropa railway company where he falls into the clutches of femme fatale Katharina Hartmann (feral Barbara Sukowa). A hypnotic blend of CinemaScope cinematography, rear projections and mixed color stocks, Zentropa (releases worldwide as Europa) finds von Trier at the peak of his powers as a movie-mad stylist. 1991/color & b&w/107 min./Scope | Scr: Lars von Trier, Niels Vørsel; dir: Lars von Trier; w/ Jean-Marc Barr, Barbara Sukowa, Udo Kier, Ernst-Hugo Järegård, Henning Jensen, Erik Mørk, Eddie Constantine, Max von Sydow. 7 for LACMA members $5 for Film Independent, LACMA Film Club, and New York Times Film Club members. Members of these groups will be required to show proof of membership when retrieving their tickets. Tickets available to members Thursday, February 19 at 5 pm | Tickets available to the public Thursday, February 26 at 5 pm
