Cutting Room for September 5

I hate it when people talk during movies. But I love it when people play symphonic music live in the theater while I watch a movie! What luck, Alloy Orchestra is returning to Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater for a live musical performance accompanying Dziga Vertov’s 1929 experimental film, Man with a Movie Camera. Tickets are $12 for general admission, $10 for students and only $8 for members. The show is at 7 pm on Oct 4, which is great because I’m free that day. What? I have a social calendar. You don’t know my life.

I have a soft spot for kids in tough places who find a way out by finding their voice through creative writing. As such, my softie heart is pitter-pattering at the prospect of Erin Gruwell, the teacher known for her work with the Freedom Writers, coming to Aksarben Cinema on Oct 1 at 7 pm. Gruwell will screen the documentary Stories from an Undeclared War and hold a Q&A afterward, along with a book signing. For ticket info, head to aksarbencinema.com. If you hadn’t noticed, the world seems like an extra crappy place these days. It’s wonderful to spend some time thinking about and listening to something positive, as apparently that stuff is rare!

I shouldn’t include this because technically, this is TV news. Well, not really because it’s not TV, it’s HBO. Oh, and also, “True Detective” was more like an 8-hour movie than an ongoing drama. And then there’s the fact that the news at hand involves Justin Lin in discussion for to direct one more episodes of the show’s second season. So you know what, I’m calling this movie news, whether you like it or not!

We’ve already had Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, but apparently our need to see children fattened and eaten knows no bounds. The awesomely talented Neil Gaiman has penned an adaptation of the tale that comes out this fall, but now producer Juliet Blake has snapped up the rights to make a live-action adaptation. This is not because Blake or Gaiman in particular experiences enjoyment from watching kiddie cannibalism. Probably.
