New York City — Showtimes & Events

Sunday, May 8th: Editor’s Pick

2:00 at Museum of the Moving Image [Program & Tix]


MILDRED PIERCE
Todd Haynes | 2011 | US | 330min
“Mother’s Day Weekend”
2:00 at MOMI

“The mini-series is ultimately too plodding and leisurely for the novel’s poignantly hilarious shrug of an ending to resonate. This approach will likely win favor with audiences weened on Mad Men’s slow-simmer pacing and glossy surfaces that mask existential despair. But one can’t help but wish Haynes and Winslet had embraced the pulpy breathlessness of Cain’s potboiler, taken more risks, had a little more fun.”
Brynn White for Alt Screen
