Tattered Cover Film Series: Salesman

Denver FilmCenter/Colfax: Join the Tattered Cover Book Store, UCD’s College of Arts & Media, Colorado Public Radio, and the new Denver FilmCenter/Colfax (in the Lowenstein CulturePlex, next door to the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue) for an exploration of the world of classic movies, hosted by Colorado Public Radio film critic Howie Movshovitz at the Denver FilmCenter/Colfax. All programs begin at 2:00 pm. Admission is free, but tickets are required from the box office. Tickets are available one hour before screening. Parking is avilable in the parking lot off of Elizabeth or Columbine Streets.

This month we’ll see the 1968 David Maysles, Albert Maysles, and Charlotte Zwerin classic Salesman.

One of the great early examples of cinéma vérité, or what the Maysles brothers and others called “direct cinema.” What they do is observe, with as little effect on their subjects as possible. The result here is at times chilling and grim, as the film watches four unhappy men pushing Bibles and plenty of guilt on the devout and the naïve. (91 minutes)
