Agora – Clay
I screened this film for about 30 minutes, than opted out to watch the season 2 premiere of Teen Mom. You have to be in the mood for this historical fiction about a woman philosopher (Rachel Weisz – who else), her Christian slave boy (Max Minghella) and the fight between Pagans and Christians. Directed by Alejandro Amenábar.
The Lottery – Roxie
A documentary that sounds as interesting and in the tradition of The Wire season 4, in which we follow families hoping to enter their children in a school lottery, in hopes of giving them a better education.
Ghostbusters/1941 double feature – Castro (Friday only)
Tonight there’s Ghostbusters, undisputed best comedy of all time, and 1941, not as great but still has the comedic stylings of pair John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. (Have you read Bill Murray’s GQ interview yet? If not, do that now.)
Great Directors – Opera Plaza
Ego-views with directors Bernardo Bertolucci, David Lynch, Stephen Frears, Agnès Varda, Ken Loach, Liliana Cavani, Todd Haynes, Catherine Breillat, Richard Linklater and John Sayles.
