The Perfect Family – Kabuki
It’s a mediocre dramedy but it stars Kathleen Turner and that’s reason enough for me to see ANYTHING. I love that raspy voiced b, she can truly make sunshine from shit nuggets. Everyone see this.
Dark Shadows – Everywhere
If Tim Burton and Johnny Depp make a movie just know these three things: 1) It will allow Johnny Depp to act like a lunatic (Although, I’m pretty sure he couldn’t play a character with real human emotions again), 2) It will include an overwrought plot that makes no sense and includes lots of character actors and 3) Even with all that, it will be weirdly kinda boring. Dark Shadows, the tale of a 19th century (I think, I’m so bad with the different centuries) playboy turned vampire who is buried alive and excavated by a family of misfit weirdos in the 1970’s. See!? Rain agrees, here’s her review.
First Position – Embarcadero
A documentary about young ballerinas competing to win the Youth America Grand Prix, a competition’s that’s weirdly about ballet, and not car racing. Oh well, same worlds! It’s no Center Stage but if you like watching
emaciated little monsters out skinnying each other to win some goofy award passionate youngsters enjoying the beauty of movement, have at it!
Darling Companion – Embarcadero
Diane Keaton and Kevin Kline mug for the camera in this stupid dramedy that can’t even be redeemed by a cute-ass dog. THAT’S saying some, I fucking LOVE dogs! Rain saw it at SFIFF, here’s her review.
The Sound of My Voice – Embarcadero
Strange movie about a woman named Maggie who leads some sort of weird cult of personality, and this skeptical couple who tries to infiltrate it and then become part of the magical mystery machine. What’s going on here?! Is Maggie the real deal? Or just a crazy egomaniac?! If you’re down for a trippy film experience, get high as a kite (ON LIFE, DUH) and watch this.
