To Do Friday: To the Max

Max von Sydow

Max von Sydow

A weeks-long tribute to Max Von Sydow concludes at BAM with a screening of Never Say Never Again, the Bond flick in which the forbidding Swede faces off against an aging Sean Connery over a hijacked nuclear warhead; this good-bad slice of cheese may not exactly be The Seventh Seal, but last night’s von Sydow screening at BAM was the bad-bad Dune … Meanwhile, the Film Forum features the dark animated film Consuming Spirits, a dystopic story whose complicated animations took 15 years to complete. Director Chris Sullivan appears at the 6:30 screening tonight to explain just how this differs from your typical Pixar flick.

Never Say Never Again, BAM Rose Cinemas, 30 Lafayette Avenue (Brooklyn), tickets and information can be found at bam.org/film; Consuming Spirits features director Christopher Sullivan at 6:30pm screening, Film Forum, 209 West Houston Street, box office can be reached at (212) 727-8110.
