Cinematheque, Fall 2011: “Heartthrobs”

Elvis

Kirsten Dunst in Small Soldiers. Shu Qi in Three Times. Ryan O’Neal in Barry Lyndon. Ingrid Bergman in Notorious. Mati Diop in 35 Shots of Rum. Heath Ledger in 10 Things I Hate About You. Natalie Portman in Garden State. Gabrielle Union in anything. Jean-Paul Belmondo in Pierrot le Fou. Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation. Google “hottest ten performances in the history of cinema,” and this is what you’ll get. Many of us secretly (or not) retain lists like this one, except far more personal in nature. Lists featuring the names of actors/characters/performances that make our hearts beat double-, triple-, or fall time (that last variety if you’re into Stephen Baldwin). Inventories of those faces, asses, neckbones, voices, jawlines, haircuts, chests, smiles, bellies (and often some combination of these, in movement) that we’ve wanted to snapshot and paste permanently to our walls. Well, guess what? Our “Heartthrobs” theme is just for you. This is your chance to showcase the performances that make you want to take multiple cold showers. Don’t be embarrassed. So what if other people thought Nicole Kidman didn’t look rugged enough in Cold Mountain and Robert de Niro looked too much like a scrawny-ass psychopath in Taxi Driver? They got your goose all a-gander. Share it with the world. E-mail Jeff Heinzl at jmh173@pitt.edu or Veronica Fitzpatrick at vaf11@pitt.edu if you’re interested in presenting.
