There's no concession stand; no coming attractions trailers. You won't be made to listen to cheesy pop music before the movie commences, nor is it likely you'll wind up next to a gaggle of teens who text and chatter straight through the entertainment. The only talking you'll hear at the Phoenix Art Museum's Film and Performance series will take place after the movie, in a discussion related to the picture you've just seen. The museum screens thought-provoking movies with themes related to its current exhibits.
Peter Greenaway's Rembrandt's J'Accuse is up next. Greenaway selected a single Rembrandt, The Night Watch, and uses it to reveal not only our "visual illiteracy," but also to expose the true story behind this famous depiction of 17th century Amsterdam.
