This Independent Week

Cinema 21
616 N.W. 21st Ave.

“Last Days” 7, 9:15, Sat.-Sun. 2:15, 4:30
Chronicles the rise and fall of a grungy, mentally ill, super rockstar who becomes addicted to heroin and eventually kills himself. Groundbreaking.

2021 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.

“Layer Cake” 8:40
Classic gangster fare starring Michael Gambon (better known as beloved Albus Dumbledore in the “Harry Potter” series) as a ruthless drug kingpin, a role which will assuredly be overlooked in favor of his portrayal of Albus Dumbledore in the “Harry Potter” series.

“My Summer of Love” 5:20, 7
The story of two British 16-year-olds who discover love in an emotional whirlwind that will appeal to 16-year-olds about as much as taking summer school algebra.

Clinton St. Theater
2522 S.E. Clinton St.

“The Place Promised in Our Early Days” 7, Sat.-Sun. 5
This anime film from renowned director and animator Makoto Shinkai sounds animezing. See “War of the Worlds” first though, to cleanse your palate.

“Time Bandits” 9, Sat. 2
This film scared the living fuck out of me when I was a kid, and I feel I’ve never quite recovered. If you insist on bringing the fam, have a serious heart-to-heart with the little ones first, explaining that not all Supreme Beings/midgets are bad. I sure wish my dad had.

Hollywood Theater

Evidence of Palestine’s existence outside of The Bible and CNN.

“Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” 5:30, 8
Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two? Not Johnny Depp.
