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.
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.

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 knowfrom 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.”
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.
