THE FANATIC
2019, Quiver Distribution, 87 min, USA, Dir: Fred Durst

On the grimy streets of Hollywood, a hyper, celebrity-obsessed man-child feels slighted by his favorite movie star at an autograph convention and embarks on an unhinged quest to get a response from the actor - leading to a home invasion and a VERY long night that changes both men irreparably. This is a violent, pitch-black satire of our culture's obsession with fame, and the social contract between celebrities and their fans in the social media age.


FACE/OFF
1997, Paramount, 138 min, USA, Dir: John Woo

A wild, dizzying thrill ride of a pulp epic that is probably the closest in spirit to Woo’s earlier Hong Kong thrillers. Federal agent John Travolta and psychotic master criminal Nicolas Cage exchange identities when a bizarre undercover operation to coax information out of Cage’s brother goes horribly wrong. Cat-and-mouse pyrotechnics mushroom as the beleaguered undercover man feverishly tries to recapture his nemesis - and his face. With Joan Allen and Gina Gershon. “A cinema of violent delirium so breathtaking it plays like visual poetry.” - Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times.


IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE
2016, Focus World, 104 min, Dir: Ti West

A mysterious drifter named Paul (Ethan Hawke) and his dog make their way toward Mexico, landing in the forgotten town of Denton. The once-popular mining town is now nearly abandoned, and controlled by a brash group of misfits led by Gilly (James Ransone), the troublemaking son of the town’s unforgiving marshal (John Travolta). As tensions rise, an inevitable act of violence starts a disastrous chain reaction that drags the town into the bloody crosshairs of revenge. With Taissa Farmiga and Karen Gillan.
