  4. RBG

    May 24, 2018, 7:00 PM

    At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg 's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films. PG / 97 min.

  5. The Great Buddha+

    May 25, 2018, 7:00 PM

    Underlining the gap between the worlds of the have-nots and the elites by switching between black and white and glamorous colors, THE GREAT BUDDHA+ vividly illustrates a corrupted village in rural southern Taiwan with memorable style, heartfelt empathy, and whimsical humor. Security guard Pickle and his trash collector friend Belly Button kill time together in night shifts watching the American-educated boss's dash-cam recordings. Against the buddies’ will, something horrifying reveals. NR (Mature) / 102 min. In Minnan w/ subtitles. "...a mordant black comedy that’s a digital-era homage to “Rear Window.” Sporting an ingeniously cinematic concept that’s nimbly executed by writer-director Huang Hsin-yao and producer-DP Chung Mong-hong, this ballad of sad losers mixed with satire on parochial politics is convulsively funny yet uncompromisingly bleak, bridging art with entertainment. Arguably the best film to emerge from a year of exciting resurgence in Taiwan..." - Maggie Lee, Variety

  6. Basket Case

    May 25, 2018, 10:00 PM

    The Late Show, presented by the American Genre Film Archive. What's in the basket? The debut gutter-trash symphony from Frank Henenlotter (BRAIN DAMAGE, FRANKENHOOKER), stealthily filmed in the toilet bowls of Times Square and chock-full of demented fury. Hilarious, disgusting, and over-the-top in every way possible, this movie plays out like Herschell Gordon Lewis directing FREAKS on the set of TAXI DRIVER. A true homemade classick. Duane and his brother Belial are ex-siamese twins who arrive in New York with a purpose -- REVENGE! Against everyone! That's enough to propel any movie, but here the deal is even sweeter because Belial is a telepathic monstrosity who lives in a wicker basket. BASKET CASE features an incredibly grotesque monster puppet that will burn its essence on the surface of your brain until the day you die. It's also filled with real-life 42nd Street sleazers, stop-motion shocks and non-stop sicko fun. NR / 91 min.
