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 Dusan Makavejev
Dusan Makavejev's controversial 1974 feature is firmly rooted in the principles of psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich. In cinematic terms, this means bombarding the audience with an onset of imagery so visceral, disgusting and repellent that it "awakens" the viewer in a Brechtian manner by "short-circuiting" the audience's reactions. Although it has its admirers, Sweet Movie is something of an acquired taste. And that's putting it kindly. (Available on FilmStruck)
