The Life and Times of Allen GinsbergThe Roxie
Watch a documentary on the man before you see James Franco play someone he studies in college.

Hausu (House)Red Vic
Some crazy Japanese-Spanish hybrid ghost story made in 1977, based on an eleven-year-old’s “musings”. Shudder.

Mesrine: Public Enemy #1Kabuki, Embarcadero
Catch the 2nd installment of the comforting dramatic biopic of Vincent Cassel as France’s premier prison escapist. In this one he’s fat!

The AmericanEverywhere
George Clooney looks dapper as an assassin. Again.

Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema
A neighborhood based three day event with shorts and documentaries. Friday has a Film Crawl on Cortland; Saturday they show them on top of Bernal Heights Park; Sunday’s events are at Precita Park. Family friendly!

Machete Everywhere
In between the far inferior Planet Terror and the far superior Death Proof was a trailer for Machete, featuring over-hyped sensation, Danny Trejo in a fake trailer for the Mexican Federale, Machete. Since Hollywood can’t make a single good film nowadays or have an original thought, they decided to tinker with the idea and make it a feature length – with Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Alba. But also Robert DeNiro Jeff Fahey and Steven Segal. I will be very drunk when I eventually watch this. (Andrew and I were NOT drunk when we watched it, keep an eye out for our review later today! — EB)

The Radiant ChildLumiere
Documentary about Jean Michel Basquiat, directed by the director of Billy Madison.

Get LowOpera Plaza
Robert Duvall wakes up and smells the smell of victory in a film that smells of Scarecrow tweaked to the likings of the new Americana trend, featuring Greats such as Sissy Spacek and Bill Murray. Rain liked it at SFIFF, see her writeup here.
