Wesleyan Fucking Film Series Calendar 2012, or “I Just Can’t Wait To Be Jeanine”

If you follow the Wesleyan Fucking Film Series on good old Friendster, there’s a good chance you’ve already caught a sneak peek of the pre-Spring Break calendar. It’s up! (Sort of.) And it’s exciting—there’s a Woody Allen pick (you know, it’s the one about New York), a Hitchcock (Notorious!), a Roman Polanski (Rosemary’s Baby, a creepy throwback if you’re digging Carnage) and Douglas Sirk’s remake of Imitation of Life (this film rules) and a collection of “black entertainers of the 1930s and 1940s” (image file is too small to make out much further detail) and—

Well, yeah:

Vague legal issues prevent us from posting the full poster as is, but click on for the list of movies. (And if you go to the WFFS’s Facebook page, you can squint really hard and almost make out the whole calendar without so much as setting foot in your Wesbox!) I’m pumped.

      Well, no—I waited for the go-ahead from a board member who assured me the full calendar wouldn’t be posted. The whole thing is all over Facebook anyway.
