This follow up to Todd Solondz's brilliant debut WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE (1995) took ensemble melodramas to a new level by hilariously blending neo-sincerity with a darker than dark sense of humor. Sporting one of the best casts this side of Paul Thomas Anderson, Philip Seymour Hoffman's gloriously uncomfortable performance alone has stung audiences for the past fifteen years. Brace yourself for how well this film has aged and come see this magnus opus from an original 35mm print showcasing all of Solondz's misanthropic glory. Preceded by other polarizing film trailers by the auteur in question. UNRATED (NC-17). Running Time: 139min. 35mm Print courtesy of Focus Features.

no pain
Filmed on Ground Zero during the weeks after September 11th, 2001, Spike Lee's exploration of these "wolves of wall street" was perhaps a little too close for comfort. Criminally overlooked and underrated on all points, the powerhouse performances by every member of the ensemble cast, is reason enough for you to come on out to the greatest movie theatre in the USA. But Rodrigo Prieto's masterful widescreen cinematography (BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET) will literally take your breath away punctuating critics Roger Ebert & A.O. Scott's declaration of 25TH HOUR being one of the best films of the last decade. Preceded by other Spike Lee trailers. Rated R. Running Time: 135min. 35mm Print courtesy of Buena Vista Pictures.
