This week’s assortment of celluloid delights begins tonight with Liev Schreiber’s directorial debut and continues with the seminal David Lynch road movie, a foul-mouthed British political parody, a profile of a sexy French coed, and Martin Scorsese doing what he does best. Sit back and enjoy the ride, because this road’s gonna take you anywhere you want to go.
Can you handle all this heat? No, seriously, can you? Because it’s not just the weather that’s hot — the movies on offer this week are seriously steamy, from the downright uncomfortable (DELIVERANCE) to the height of young lust (Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN).
Our Thriller Thursdays selection is John Boorman’s DELIVERANCE, with its dueling banjos, menacing hillbillies and all.
This week on Sundance Channel, we’ve got cinematic portrayals of people at war — with their heroes, their bosses, their communities and themselves.
Last week we featured FIGHT CLUB and now Brad Pitt is engaged. What’s going to happen to Dustin Hoffman after we all watch TOOTSIE on Sunday? He needs some good news after they cancelled Luck, so fingers crossed! We’ve also got a Japanese horror classic, a French student prostitution romp and the indie dream combo of Bernal and Williams.
