I Still Wake Up Dreaming: Noir Redux – The Roxie
Extended by popular demand, fun old black and white movies with femmes, guns, and men who will always look better in vintage suits then you ever will. Nods to Johnny Cool, Nightmare, and 99 River Street.
Micmacs – Embarcadero
The director who made all college girls discover French style and cutesy looks, made the boringest war movie ever, don’t get me started on Alien 4 please, and Delicatessen, which – is it still “all that” to the Thirtysomething set? Anyway, this new one is about a homeless guy who meets funny characters. (See MiHi’s capsule review here.)
Ran – Embarcadero
in 1985, Akiro Kurasawa made the most expensive Japanese film ever. This is it – it has to do with epic battles and war lords and funny beards.
Best Worst Movie & Troll 2 – Lumiere
Troll 2 is apparently the worst film ever made (cough Alien 3 cough) and Best Worst Movie is a documentary about said movie. The filmmakers and actors will be in attendance this weekend!
Splice – Everywhere
