June preview

May 26, 2012

Here are some films we hope to bring you in June.

Sound of My Voice  June 1.  Another indie sci-fi film from Brit Marling (Another Earth). A journalist and his girlfriend go deep undercover to investigate a cult and a woman from the future...or is she?

Bernie  One of those films that marry documentary and fiction. Based on true events, Bernie tells the murder story of a small-town undertaker (Jack Black) and his (much) older cranky wife (Shirley MacLaine) using interviews from actual town members.

Headhunters  A big-time corporate headhunter with a shadow-career in art thieving becomes the hunted. Featuring your man Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones). Looking forward to this one.

Not the milk!

The Raid: Redemption  If you like bad-ass action flicks this one's for you. I'm not even gonna tell you about it. You just need to watch the trailer:
The Raid will probably only have a weekend run so keep an eye out for it.

Homebrewed Series  Every Wednesday in June we'll be showing a microbudget film from an up-and-coming American director. I believe most of these films are still in the film-festival circuit. This is a great way to see a cool film before anyone has even heard of it. A big thanks to Chris for selecting these films and Uprise Bakery for selecting companion beers (to be sampled with each screening). There will be a Q&A with the director after each film---in person or via the internet.

Ragtag Birthday Party  We're turning 14! Come celebrate with tasty treats and a free movie. Rumors tell of cookies + ice cream and the launch of a monthly True/False Film Fest retrospective series.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi  A documentary about an 85-year-old sushi master and his business in Tokyo.

The Deep Blue Sea  Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston (Loki) are having an affair in 50s London. Based on the 1952 play by Terence Rattigan.

Monsieur Lazhar  An Algerian immigrant talks his way into teaching at a Montréal elementary school, replacing a beloved teacher who's recently committed suicide.

Moonrise Kingdom  Another instant classic from Wes Anderson. Cross your fingers we get this. Go on, cross em!
