This Independent Week

Cinema 21
616 N.W. 21st Ave.

“Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room” 7, 9:15p.m., Sat.-Sun. 2, 4:30p.m.
I know it’s good that movies like this are being made, and education on the greed and moral deficiency of multi-billionaire bigwigs is certainly something that Americans need to be aware of, but to what degree is the latest glut of anti-corporation, anti-American movies just getting swept under the rug of “entertainment?” I mean, who talks about Erin Brockovich anymore? Shit, now I’m bummed.

2021 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd.

“Sideways” 5p.m.
For those of you who didn’t get a chance to catch “Sideways” when it hit the mainstream theaters, now is your chance to see the film that one reviewer (me) hailed as being “a laugh-out-loud romp through the inner-chambers of a discarded pair of underwear with caked-on shit and semen residue. See it…now!”

“Hotel Rwanda” 9:30p.m.
What do you get when you mix “Hotel Rwanda” with John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Kevin Kline? “A Fish Called Rwanda!”

“House of Flying Daggers” 7:20p.m.
As Dorothy leaves to meet her date at a restaurant, Sophia states that he’s a jerk for not picking her up. The conversation sends Blanche, Rose and Sophia down memory lane as they reminisce about past jerks in their lives.

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

“The Girl From Monday” 7, 9p.m., Sat.-Sun. 5p.m.
This is some kind of sci-fi romantic comedy by indie great Hal Hartley, who’s movies I do NOT enjoy. So if you want an informed review that doesn’t include terms like “seeping anal fissure,” I’m afraid you’re going to have to look elsewhere.
