CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?
2018, Fox Searchlight, 106 min, USA, Dir: Marielle Heller

Melissa McCarthy stars in the adaptation of the memoir CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?, the true story of best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats) Lee Israel, who made her living in the 1970s and '80s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant). “It is a fiercely composed, historically informed, and richly textured film, as insightful regarding the particularities of the protagonist as it is on the artistic life - and on the life of its times.” - Richard Brody, The New Yorker.


THE LORDS OF SALEM
2012, Lionsgate, 101 min, USA/UK/Canada, Dir: Rob Zombie

A mysterious record from the Lords shows up at a Salem radio station, and DJ Heidi plays it thinking it's just an elaborate marketing scheme by a local band. Instead, the music on the records causes Heidi to have visions of a past trauma. When the Lords announce their first concert, the women of town are drawn to the hypnotic drone that evokes Salem's historic witchery.


THE INTERVIEW
2014, Columbia Pictures, 112 min, USA, Dir: Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen

In the year’s most notorious film, tabloid TV host Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) score an unusual coup when North Korean ruler Kim Jung-Un (Randall Park) agrees to do an interview for their show. But the CIA sees this as a golden opportunity to assassinate the reclusive dictator, and Skylark and Rapoport are soon in way over their heads as hapless secret agents. Like they did in PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, the Goldberg-Rogen-Franco axis of comedy delivers some outlandish action sequences along with the laughs.
