The Independent Film Festival of Boston’s Fall Focus series at the Brattle Continues with Karyn Kusama’s (Girl Fight, Jennifer’s Body) new film The Invitation a slow burn thriller with a lot of buzz; it recently won best film honors at the 48th Sitges Film Festival in Spain, which is prominent for its fantasy and horror programing.
The Independent Film Festival of Boston has added a new film series in the fall at the Brattle Theater. Sunday’s opening night documentary is Michael Moore’s Where To Invade Next. The word on the street from TIFF is that this is an amusing optimistic film, highlighting successful social policies from around the world that Americans should “capture” and make their own.
This week at Oberon Wolf 359’s production Song of a Convalescent Ayn Rand Giving Thanks to the Godhead (In the Lydian Mode) continues. An examination of art and pain, with song and drag, and well earned snarkiness about objectivism. Worth it for the “re enactment” of the “love scene” from The Fountainhead alone.
