Quick Update for Portland Film Fans

Cinema 21, currently showing the rather stupendous The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, will be running a five-week European Grindhouse Film Festival. These movies usually aren't my bag - although I'll freely admit I'm probably not watching all the right ones, I've been let down enough by them not being nearly as balls-out awesome as their passionate fanbase claims them to be, but there's something about unleashing 70s and 80s horror movies from Europe that has my interest piqued. Especially Torso, which features " an incredible soundtrack, stylish cinematography, a hacksaw, and non-stop nudity." They'll be showing them every Saturday, starting this Saturday - come join me for Torso on the 23rd and watch me try to stay awake after waking up for work at 4:40 that morning!
