Lovers of “Marnie,” Alfred Hitchcock’s 1964 psychosexual pas de deux with Tippi Hedren that placed weirdly high on a recent BBC critics’ poll of the best movies ever, are in for a treat at this year’s Vienna fest. The quintessential Hitchcock blonde gets her very own tribute, titled Choreography of Desire, including screenings of that film, “The Birds” and her recently re-released film maudit “Roar,” co-starring her daughter Melanie Griffith.
The now-unspooling Viennale lineup also includes an ode to late filmmaker Manoel de Oliveira, who died this year at age 106, presented by fellow Portuguese auteur Pedro Costa.
Highlights of the feature film lineup include Sundance titles “Diary of a Teenage Girl,” “Dope,” “End of the Tour” and “Tangerine,” as well as other festival faves such as Alex Ross Perry’s “Queen of Earth” (opening next week in New York), Nanni Moretti’s Cannes competition title “Mia Madre,” and Cannes entries from Hou Hsiao-Hsien (“The Assassin”) and Corneliu Porumboiu (“Treasure”).
On the doc slate are Les Blank’s “A Poem Is a Naked Person,” Jem Cohen’s “Counting,” Joshua Oppenheimer’s “The Look of Silence,” Rodney Ascher’s “The Nightmare,” Crystal Moselle’s “The Wolfpack” and many more.
