ifcThe old Waverly Theater in the West Village (best known for starting the whole cult of midnight showings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show) has finally been reincarnated as the brand spanking new IFC Center. IFC stands for The Independent Film Channel, a movie lovers favorite on US cable television. So, while the theater isn’t independent, the movies promise to be.

OUTFOXED Independently Distributed

smaller outfoxed What looks like a fascinating documentary on Rupert Murdoch’s FOX News channel, the leader in sensationalized biased reporting in America, is being independantly distributed. Sponsors of the video include MoveOn.Org an extremely wide reaching online grassroots political organization in the US.

You can watch a clip from OUTFOXED and find yourself OUTraged by their ridiculous tactics. I don’t get this channel and actually watch very little TV, so I was blown over when at the end of the preview they showed that the network’s slogan is that they provide “fair and unbiased” reporting. Watch the clip and you will be amazed that their claim is even legal.

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

priscilla_queen.jpgFor those at home next Saturday, they can enjoy this great movie at 22.57h on Ned. 3. It’s one of my all time favourites and I really want to get this one on DVD.

It’s a road-movie about three men, two gay transvestites and one transsexual, who bring their over-the-top performance show to the small haggard villages of the Australian bush. You’ll see brilliant performances by Guy Pearce (Memento, L.A. Confidential), Hugo Weaving (Matrix) and a surprising role for Terence Stamp (The Limey). Not only is this movie hilarious with very smart dialogues and great acting, but it also looks absolutely stunning with some great (disco) tunes. Enjoy this one!
