Looking for something to watch this weekend? Already seen The Master 3 times? Will Noah takes a look at what’s playing at some of NYC’s finest rep houses this weekend.


Hey all you Brian DePalma fanboys and girls out there, tired of watching the sub-Skinemax trailer for Passion over and over again in giddy anticipation of its U.S. premiere at NYFF? Or maybe you’re a schmuck like me who thinks of him as that hack who made the first Mission: Impossible? Either way, go check out Carrie at the Nitehawk Cinema, playing at 12:15 AM Friday and Saturday nights!

A new DCP restoration of The Tin Drum, Volker Schlöndorff’s adaptation of Günter Grass’ classic novel, begins a weeklong run at Film Forum this Friday, which also marks the U.S. theatrical premiere of the film’s director’s cut. Make sure to catch it Friday at 7:20, when the Volkster himself will be introducing the film!

I don’t know if I’d actually call it a good movie, but Richard Kelly’s Southland Tales remains something of a must-see critical lightning rod six years after it was met with boos at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival. An indulgent mess to end all indulgent messes, Kelly’s film constitutes chapters four through six of a six-part saga (chapters onethrough three exist as comic books that I’d guess not even J. Hoberman—the curator of the series in which Tales is playing—has ever read). If you’re in the mood for altruistic porn stars, bizarre stunt casting, a musical number set to The Killers’ “All These Things That I’ve Done”, and lines of dialogue like “I’m a pimp, and pimps don’t commit suicide,” all set in a cartoonishly apocalyptic Los Angeles, make sure to make it to the Museum of the Moving Image Friday at 7:00 or Saturday at 3:30.
