What You Should See
It’s actually not very often that not even one big Hollywood movie opens in a weekend. That’s more of a once-a-year type of thing, maybe twice, but that’s what we’re getting this weekend: NO BIG HOLLYWOOD MOVIES.
That said, there are a bunch of new movies opening in this fine city, and, concordant with their lack of big Hollywood budgets or promotions, I don’t have a bad thing to say about any of them. I would absolutely recommend Lucky, Last Flag Flying, and Wexford Plaza, I would consider Radius and Suck it Up, and Another Wolfcop seems unlikely to disappoint anyone in its target audience.
Also, and this one falls just outside of the weekend’s releases but it felt worth mentioning, I wanted to draw special attention to A Better Man, a thought-provoking piece that I would really recommend seeing. It’ll be playing at Metro Cinema on Monday with the filmmaker in attendance and a Q&A following the screening.
Also also, for the love of god, go see Justice League! It needs your help! If people stop seeing it, it might not make $600 million! And believe it or not, that’s not enough money to turn a profit! It might not be very good, but it is pretty great — READ OUR REVIEW.
