April - Midnight Movie 101


El Topo
April 7
Arguably the seminal film in this genre, this surreal subversion of the Western features symbolism from Christianity and Eastern philosophy. A mysterious black-clad gunfighter wanders a mystical Western landscape encountering multiple bizarre characters. (Alejandro Jodorowsky, 1970, Mexico, 2:05, NR)

Eraserhead
April 14
The film that launched Lynch as a new talent also disturbed a generation of college students with a nightmare of male paranoia and mind-bending images. Henry Spencer tries to survive his industrial environment, his angry girlfriend, and the unbearable screams of his newly born mutant child. (David Lynch, 1977, USA, 1:29, NR) 
 
I Drink Your Blood
April 21
Inspired by a real-life rabies epidemic and the Manson murders, this Satanic psychedelic slasher would be considered early “grindhouse.” A group of hippies wreak havoc on a small town, and a young boy, whose grandfather and sister were attacked by them, decides to get even, with deadly results. (David Durston, 1970, USA, 1:23, R)
 
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
April 28
Belted, buckled, and booted! In this turbo-charged action film, three curvaceous go-go dancers in a cool sports car go on a desert crime spree. The women are led by Varla, a busty, nasty woman dressed entirely in black. Varla's lesbian moll Rosie and reluctant bimbo Billie come along for the ride. (Russ Meyer, 1965, USA, 1:23, R)

May - Comic-book movies NOT from DC/Marvel


Ghost World
May 5
Set during the summer after they graduate from high school, two ultra-hip friends, Enid and Becky fear drifting apart when Enid considers moving across the country to attend college. When Enid develops an attraction to offbeat Seymour and Becky sets her sights on Josh - on whom both girls have a crush - their friendship is forever changed. With a very young Scarlett Johansson. Is on almost every top-ten list. (Terry Zwigoff, 2001, USA, 1:51, R)
 
A History of Violence
May 12
Viggo Mortensen calls it the best movie he ever worked on. Tom Stall is living a happy and quiet life with his lawyer wife and their two children in the small town of Millbrook, Indiana, but one night their idyllic existence is shattered when Tom foils a vicious attempted robbery in his diner. Sensing danger, he takes action and saves his customers and friends in the self-defense killings of two-sought-after criminals. Heralded as a hero, Tom's life is changed overnight, attracting a national media circus, which forces him into the spotlight. Uncomfortable with his newfound celebrity, Tom tries to return to the normalcy of his ordinary life only to be confronted by a mysterious and threatening man who arrives in town believing Tom is the man who's wronged him in the past. As Tom and his family fight back against this case of mistaken identity and struggle to cope with their changed reality, they are forced to confront their relationships and the divisive issues which surface as a result. (David Cronenberg, 2005, USA, 1:36, R)
 
Tank Girl
May 19
This wild, futuristic action-fantasy is set in the year 2033 where drought and pollution have turned the Earth into a desert wasteland. The planet's water supply is controlled by a despotic company that is opposed by a few courageous rebels who regularly risk their lives to poach the precious fluid. But the parade of outrageous characters and punk aesthetics will make you forget  dystopia. And Iggy Pop in a perky cameo. (Rachel Talalay, 1995, USA, 1:44, R)
 
Scott Pilgrim vs the World
May 26
follows the eponymous slacker rocker on his colorful quest to defeat his dream girl's seven evil ex-boyfriends. Twenty-two-year-old Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) may not have a job, but rocking the bass for his band, Sex Bob-omb, is a tough job unto itself. When Scott locks eyes with Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), he knows she's the girl he wants to grow old with. But Ramona has some serious baggage; her supercharged exes rue the thought of her being with another man, and they'll crush any guy who gives her a second glance. Now, in order to win Ramona's heart, Scott will do battle with everyone from vegan-powered rock gods to sinister skateboarders, never losing sight of his gorgeous goal as he pummels his way to victory. Shaun of the Dead's Edgar Wright directs the film from a script he penned with Michael Bacall. Superhero veterans Chris Evans and Brandon Routh co-star in the action comedy as two of the seven ex-boyfriends. ( Edgar Wright, 2010, USA, 1:52, PG-13)
