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.

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.

Film This Week: Ice-Cold Club Kids, Xmas Horror, and Rare Glimpses of Vaudeville

Sup guys? Darkness reigns right now, so instead of pining away for the sun when it sets just two hours after freaking lunch, forget about it. Embrace the season of death by spending it far, far away from things that are a reminder you’re stuck on planet Earth till (real) death do y’all part. The best way to do that, in our opinion, is to get to a cinema theater.

Film This Week: Post-Apocalyptic Brooklyn, Cruising, and IRL Woody Allen

Hey guys, not sure if you’re aware but tomorrow is Thanksgiving, which means you’re either stuck with family, flying solo, or awkwardly tagging along with your significant other’s fam. Either way, it’s going to be hell. We really can’t emphasize enough how essential it is to get yourself to a movie theater this holiday weekend. No matter what awful scenario you’ve found yourself in, we’ve got a film for you.

Kurt Russell Rocks An Eyepatch, Tommy Wiseau IRL, Get Freaky With Danish Vampyrs

It’s that time of the week again, y’all. Here’s a list of a moving pictures we’re excited to see.


Escape From New York
This is early ’80s sci-fi action at its finest. It’s the year 1997 and New York City is a police state (sounds familiar), but rather than shipping criminals to Rikers Island, the island of Manhattan has been converted into a maximum security prison where violence reigns. The probably named Snake Plissken (played by a mostly shirtless Kurt Russell) is not only working to bring back eyepatches, but he’s also on a reconnaissance mission to save the President after Air Force One crashes in the middle of Manhattan. Friday September 26th and Saturday September 27th at 12:20 am, IFC Center; tickets, $14

J Franks Is At It Again, East German Westerns, And ’60s Afronauts

Check out the flicks we’re Reel Psyched to see this week.


Kink
Oh boy, get ready for this one: Franco combines his passion for porn and documentary as the producer of Kink– which takes us behind the scenes at Kink.com, “the Internet’s largest producer of BDSM content.” Apparently the film does a good deal of cheerleading for Kink.com, which is a relatively open and “normal” operation compared to the rest of the fetish industry. J Franks himself will be on site and ready for an audience Q+A  after Friday’s 9:55 pm screening. Friday August 22nd through Tuesday August 26 at IFC Center, 323 6th avenue; tickets, $14

42 Kooky, Kinky Films to See in Theaters While You Wait For Nymphomaniac


Part one of Lars Von Trier’s much ballyhooed NC-17 tour de force, Nymphomaniac (NSFW trailer above), will finally make its NYC debut at Nitehawk Cinema on March 28 (we’re going to assume “LaBeouf in the Buff” will be one of the special Nympho-themed cocktails). Yes, that’s a whole month from now, but there are plenty of ways to stimulate your appreciation for strange, sex-crazed cinema in the meantime.
