Just For Fun
School's out! 'Tis the season to shut off your brain, power through some mindless beach reading, and watch movies that don't ask too much of you. From the screwball comedies of Hollywood's golden age to R-rated, tongue-in-cheek reboots of old TV shows to anything starring Kid 'N Play, take an air conditioning break with any of these good-time flicks.
Staff Pick of the Day
Directed by Harmony Korine
This elliptical ensemble piece marks the directorial debut of indie bad boy Harmony Korine. Focusing on the teens of tornado-scarred Xenia, OH, Gummo is a hallucinatory barrage of images and scenarios with little in the way of traditional plot, and has been variously described as a surrealist joke, a visual poem, and a worm's-eye view of white-trash suffering.
