One thing I forgot to mention last week was that Southland Tales, the new film from Donnie Darko director Richard Kelly, opens this Wednesday in Manhattan. Perhaps best known for being booed at the Cannes Film Festival recently, the movie also has possibly the most bizarre cast assembled in some time, consisting of people like The Rock, Seann William Scott, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Justin Timberlake, Kevin Smith and Christopher Lambert.
While it’s supposed to be a disaster, it definitely looks like an interesting disaster. Richard Kelly has been compared to David Lynch and David Cronenberg on several occasions, and even when those two fuck up, they fuck up with style. The movie is opening at two rather random theaters: The AMC Loews on 19th Street and Broadway, and the one on 84th Street and Broadway. Tickets are available at Fandango.
