While much of Austin is in depths of post Free Week depression, Max Dropout and I have addressed the crisis with the debut of a new (free) monthly film series at Beerland, The Church Of The Up All Night.
We’ll get things started this evening with “The Boy Who Cried Bitch” (1991, dir. Juan JosÃ© Campanella), according to MoiraKelly.net (seriously), “one of the most reprehensible films ever made….what are we to make of this gratuitous farrago involving two of the most unappealing characters ever to be featured in a movie? Pity? Sorrow? Fear? The one emotion it’s sure to incite in audiences is impatience for the actors to get that last dirty deed done so they can be liberated from the suffocating, grotesque atmosphere that has been created.”
I dunno about you, but I’d pay to see that. Luckily, we don’t have to.
Coming Feb. 8 – Rip Torn in “Payday”
