Film Series: Playtime

1967. France. Dir: Jacques Tati. With Tati, Rita Maiden. 124 min.


If visual complexity and laugh-out-loud comedy seem like oddly intriguing bedfellows, consider this symphony of simultaneous gags – a veritable Where’s Waldo book brought to life. Amidst sets so intricate and expensive that they bankrupted the obsessive Tati, his beloved character Monsieur Hulot navigates Paris in all its frightening modernity.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free

Film Series: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

1986. USA. Dir: John Hughes. With Matthew Broderick. 103 min.


Led by a charming Matthew Broderick, a trio of high school seniors borrow Daddy’s sports car and head to Chicago for an elaborate day of hooky. From its out-of-the-blue musical numbers to its tongue-in-cheek dialogue, Bueller will leave you yearning for the “good old” eighties you never actually knew.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / $5

“Concerts on Foss: now more than ever!”

It’s definitely not Kanye….but that’d be awesome, right?? Thanks to Yik Yak, that new thing that spreads weird rumors, many of us know that the line up is actually Chingy as headliner, Hall and Oates, and Big Sean. However, today I heard from a Spring Fling Committee member that the line-up is actually as follows:

THE JULIE RUIN (Kathleen Hanna + members of Le Tigre / Bikini Kill)

So maybe that’s right, since we know from previous years that the lineup is definitely complete once we have a hip hop headliner, an indie act, and some electronic music. But Yik Yak says otherwise and some senior says “we’re still negotiating with Modest Mouse.”

Will it be outside? I HOPE SO! But really, who knows at this point? It’s up to the admin, and even though last year I proclaimed that Spring Fling Will Be Outside [Forever] Even if Meteors Hit Foss, it was ultimately hyperbole and I have no idea (nor do Spring Fling Committee members).

SPRRRINGGGG FLIIINNGGGGG May 7, 1 PM (when the opening act, which will be decided during BATTLE OF THE BANDS AT ECLECTIC ON APRIL 24, goes on). Read past the jump to find out more about the artists.

Film Series: A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

2014. USA. Dir: Ana Lily Amirpour. With Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi. 99 min.


Welcome to Bad City, Iran. It has a lot going for it: drugs, prostitution, death, etc. It also has a girl who spends her nights skating and drinking the blood of its low-lifes. Easily the best black-and-white female-driven Persian-language vampire “Western” to date, Girl demonstrates plenty of style, pop-culture savvy, and biting social commentary.
