This Week In Film: Vampire Giggles, Larry Clark Is Back (Sort Of), And Spanking New Cronenberg

It’s Awards Season. Apparently. Which means we here at Reel Psyched are staying as far, far away from TV screens as is possible in this day and age, lest we’re tricked into watching the fashion police spew racist crap or pop stars we were 100 percent sure were dead until now jiggle impossibly across some seizure-inducing nightmare of a stage set. It’s all so demonic when you think about it, really. And all of this disturbing spectacle is in the name of… movies? Like, how?

This Week In Film: Drone Travelers, Cameraless Docs, Jarmusch & Friends Score Man Ray

It’s a great week for experimental weirdness. I’ve been on a kick since I saw Hard To Be A God a couple weeks back at Anthology, which definitely isn’t a movie for everyone.

Thankfully, things are a little more, uh, shall we say lubricated since it’s Friday. We suggest that, after you’ve had sufficient enough drinks at the bar you’ve been sitting at all day to forget who you are, you slither directly into a movie theater near you to rediscover your humanity.

Week In Film: Burroughs Bugs, Rogue Abortions, and Debauchery in ’70s Brazil

Man this week has been brutal. What with the snow and the slow-as-hell trains and the wind and the ice, how will we ever get through the magnified pain of daily existence from here until, like, May? An old-fashioned trip to the cinema, that’s how! There are a slew of great new films to see and some old ones screening this week too. Check out our picks for films this week below.

This Week In Film: The Stoner Detective, Javanese Vibes, And Exploding Heads

We’ve brought you a whole bunch of films that are a little more mind-blowing than you might be used to– apparently there are some seriously mystical vibes in the moving image stratosphere right now.
