There is one movie that keeps popping up on every critic’s list for 2012, and it isn’t Lincoln. Instead, it is the extremely bizarre-looking Holy Motors, a French film directed by Leos Carax and starring Denis Levant that appears to be about a day in the life of a very unusual businessman named Monsieur Oscar.

Right now, screenings are very limited, but we imagine that will change after Oscar nominations are announced on Thursday. Get ahead of the game and book your tickets now to see this crazy spectacle at Indiescreen Cinema. If you still aren’t convinced, is a cameo by the one and only Kylie Minogue enough to get you in the theater?

The lure of the festival isn’t […]
From the Newport Jazz Festival and Woodstock, to Live Aid and Lollapalooza, music festivals once held historical and cultural importance—before the dizzying array of acts, foodtrucks, and selfie-happy audiences took over. The Memphis Country Blues Festival, which first started in 1966, is not as well known as some contemporaries, but was equally significant. Though it had a […]
Yippee! It is AMAZING outside today, and I have to tell you that this weather couldn’t be better timed as far as I’m concerned. I’ve spent the last 36 hours and counting in that special place in hell known as the UPS customer experience, and have needlessly missed a day of work, endured an abysmal […]
