Hello Maplephiles,

The Little Projectionist and I went to see Toy Story 4 the other day. It was either this or see Spider-Man again. The movie he really wants to see is Good Boys which is out August 16th. I saw this movie at SXSW last March. It is the funniest movie I have seen since The Hangover.  It would be completely inappropriate for my son if this was 1985, but my son saw Something About Mary. The bar has been set.

Speaking of The Little Projectionist, he had his 13th birthday. The five of you who read this newsletter religiously know that I threatened to quit writing about him when he reached this age. My wife just compiled all the paragraphs from his entire life into one book as a gift for his birthday. One day when he has a son, and cares to read it, he will realize that payback is a bitch.

This week we are opening a movie called The Last. This is a small film that Ruth and I watched a few months back. We promised a small independent producer a week of screen time, and even though we wanted to play Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, we kept our word. The film starts a bit slow and then Rebecca Schull takes over the film. Schull is “one of those actors” you have seen in a bunch of things, but don’t know her. She is Oscar great even though she will never get nominated.

This week Secret Cinema: Old Hollywood is a good one. I mentioned it is similar to a Hitchcock movie, but Hitchcock did not direct it. However, the story was written by someone who also wrote the story for a Hitchcock movie. Kaelie Thompson is the host, the film is not rated, and runs about 2 hours.

 

Announcements from Ruth:
This weekend, come meet Filmmaker, Jeff Lipsky.  He will be hosting all shows of The Last on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  As an independent film distributor, Jeff was mentored by John Cassavetes for whom he distributed A Woman Under the Influence, The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, and Opening Night.

 

WARNING: Moment of Zen is highly inappropriate but very funny
