'The Passion of Joan of Arc'

AT THE MOVIES / CRITICS' PICKS

November 06, 2008|KENNETH TURAN

With only a week left before the crush of fall films begins in earnest, this might be a good time to take a step back and immerse yourself in one of cinema's classics. Carl Dreyer's 1928 "The Passion of Joan of Arc," with Maria Falconetti in the title role in a rare screen appearance, is one of the acknowledged masterworks of the late silent period. See it one time only with a modern electronic score played live by Klive and Nigel Humberstone, collectively known as In the Nursery. This would also be a chance to discover the Cinefamily at the Silent Movie Theatre, a relatively new repertory organization that is doing some of the most varied and inventive programming in town. 8 p.m. Sun. Silent Movie Theatre, 611 N. Fairfax Ave. L.A. (323) 655-2510.
