FANDOR January Highlights

FANDOR offers Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Conformist in January, which returns in a dazzling new restoration supervised by the director and cinematographer Vittorio Storaro.

FANDOR will also conclude Li’L Quinquin (2014) from director Bruno Dumont, a four-part miniseries with the strangest genre mix this side of Twin Peaks. There is a tale of adolescent boredom and mischievous antics over a summer vacation in rural Northern France. Then there is the deadpan comedy of eccentric village behavior. And there is also a perverse murder mystery involving a serial killer, the severed remains of his victims and dead farm animals. Leading the investigation is a tetchy old investigator with bushy eyebrows, a symphony of facial tics and the manner of a classic movie clown, equal parts brilliant and bumbling as he sifts through a body count that builds with each episode. Part 1: “The Human Beast,” Part 2: “The Heart of Evil,” and Part 3: “The Devil Incarnate,” are already available. The fourth part will become available on Jan. 2
