2003 Classic Oldboy Plays Again This Weekend

oldboy movie poster MondoCelluloid is warning audiences to prepare to have their mind blown when Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy screens at The Art Theatre this weekend. Virtually hand-selected by Quentin Tarantino for American audiences, director Chan-wook Park’s Oldboy blew 2003 audiences away with its moments of almost gleefully extreme violence, pitch-dark comedy, a carefully structured story, and a shock ending that made everything that came before feel like child’s play.

Showgirls to play at the Art Theatre

showgirls-rena Sometimes even a Golden Raspberry “Razzie” Award winner for “Worst Picture of the Year” transcends to become a beloved cult classic.  For every unwatchable flop like 1987’s “Leonard Part 6” or 2002’s “Swept Away”, there’s a veritable gem like 1981’s “Mommie Dearest” or, most recently, 2007’s surprisingly entertaining—for reasons right and wrong—“I Know Who Killed Me.” The Mother of all Razzie Winners is, of course, 1995’s “Showgirls”, holding a record of 13 Razzie nominations and 7 “wins.”  Despite this, to date “Showgirls” is the highest grossing NC17 film of all time, has seen released in numerous DVD formats and editions (including a popular box set), and continues to pull in audiences at midnight screenings across the country.
