Funny we were just talking about Alex Ross Perry. Videology just announced that it’s doing a free midnight screening of his new one, which won’t be in theaters until August 26. Queen of Earth, his follow-up to Listen Up Philip, uses that classic indie/mumblecore trope: some friends retreat to an isolated house (in this case it’s a beach house rather than the usual cabin in the woods) and conversation and mind games ensue.
Other than the fact that it pits Elisabeth Moss of Mad Men against Katherine Waterston of Inherent Vice, we don’t know much about the film, because we’re actually fans of ARP and don’t want to know anything going into it. (If you’re less spoiler-averse, our friends at Vulture did a little something on it).
Take note: the screening is first come, first serve. You can RSVP here, but it doesn’t guarantee entry.
It’s also worth noting that another B+B favorite, Fort Tilden (in theaters Aug. 14), will also have an advance screening at Videology, followed by a q&a with the writer/directors (Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers) and the stars (Bridey Elliot and Clare McNulty). That one is at 4 p.m. on Sunday, when all of Williamsburg will be living the plot of the film and trying to get to Fort Tilden, so entry might just be a breeze. RSVP here.
