Weekend Movie Haps

Following up on Daniel’s post, I’d like to call attention to a few movie events this weekend in Atlanta.

The major film event is the Atlanta Underground Film Festival, which runs from August 25-31. To be honest, I know very little about any of the participating films, but as a fan of experimental film, I’m hoping to attend 1-2 screenings this weekend.

Richard Kelly’s “director’s cut” of Donnie Darko will be playing this week at the Lefont Plaza Theater. I quite liked the original version. The cinematography is very good, and while some aspects of Kelly’s time-travel plot seemed strangely spiritualistic, the film’s images of Reagan-era apocalypse are intriguing and thought-provoking. I’ve heard mixed reviews of the director’s cut, but if you haven’t seen the film on the big screen, that experience alone might be worth it.

Finally, Taxi Driver is playing on a midnight-only screening at the Landmark Midtown 8 theater on Monroe Dr.
