Buffalo '66

BUFFALO '66
Friday, June 28, 2013 // Midnite


“Gallo’s battle cry makes for a fiercely humorous slice of unreality that soars even when it’s crawling in the gutter and puking on itself.” – Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle

It’s been fifteen years since Vincent Gallo’s powerhouse feature filmmaking debut splashed across theater screens, and in 2013, it still retains every last bit of its amazingness through its
electric writing and direction, pitch-perfect casting and performances, a killer soundtrack and all-time cinematography by indie hero Lance Acord. A semi-autobiographical tragicomedy, Gallo plays an ex-con fresh out of the clink: alone, desperate, and in dire need of a restroom. When he kidnaps doe-eyed ballerina Christina Ricci, he may have finally found the perfect date to bring home to Mom and Pop — if only he can get that shifter car to work first. Part of what really makes this festival sensation so memorable are the mesmerizing flourishes (stand-out moments like a Ben Gazzara pantomime, and Ricci’s tap dance number), and a stellar supporting cast that includes Anjelica Huston, Kevin Corrigan, Jan-Michael Vincent and Mickey Rourke. Buffalo ’66 is a modern classic that spans time to remain moving, beautiful and the epitome of absolute cool.
Dir. Vincent Gallo, 1998, 35mm, 110 min.

Heavy Midnites One Year Anniversary Party feat. Heavenly Bodies at Cinefamily Los Angeles

Posted by phil blankenship, June 14, 2013 09:22am | Post a Comment

To celebrate my 1 year anniversary of programming midnite movies at Cinefamily, I'm screening my all-time favorite Canadian aerobics movie PLUS hosting my 35th birthday party after. Stop by TONIGHT!!

Watch the custom trailer for tonight's festivities:



HEAVY MIDNITES 1-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY (featuring HEAVENLY BODIES)
Friday, June 14, 2013 // 10:00pm

NOTE: A very special 10PM presentation by Heavy Midnights!

We love all things colorful, spastic and elastic, especially when they’re hardbodies in motion. Flashdance! Jazzercise! Cardiac arrest! We’re breaking out the big guns and kicking off our totally-not-bummer summer with the most transcendently ‘80s fun factory in Canadian film history — PLUS, a triumphant mega-party celebrating the 1-year anniversary of Heavy Midnites madness at no extra cost! Filled with wide smiles, spandexed bods and a driving pop soundtrack, Heavenly Bodies is the crown jewel in the short-lived aerobic-sploitation explosion: a non-stop, sweat-fueled mix of mesh, bump and grind. The story is an age-old classic: when Samantha and her small dancercise studio are threatened by the unscrupulous owner of a rival club, who will come out on top of their televised, winner-takes-all, dance-till-you-drop marathon workout? Grab your leotards & tights to find out — there’s bonus points for attending in your finest exercise gear!
Heavenly Bodies Dir. Lawrence Dane, 1984, 35mm, 90 min.
