When: Fri., July 17 2015

Welsh director Peter Greenaway originally set to out to become a painter before he started making films. As a result, his movies have a lush look to them and some scenes look like they could be paintings. The direct has made some controversial films during the course of his career and The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover certainly turned some heads when it came out in 1989. The film centers on a gangster (Michael Gambon) and his wife (Helen Mirren). When the gangster discovers his wife has been having an affair with a man who frequents his favorite restaurant, he flips out and finds a novel way to punish her. It nearly received an X-rating on account of the extreme sex and violence. It screens tonight at 7 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
