i did look into the theater listings , if i remember corectly it was showing at only one theater here in chicago . i think its a very limited run , which would make sense , this thing is NOT for normal public consumption .

there is a thing called torrents , oh nevermind .

i did notice something on facebook that is going to be streamed live , i am guessing for free ?

here are the theater dates :

then there is the on demand option , which i believe is ten bucks ;

lastly the fb live thing link is here :

Saw the trailer for that and didn't laugh once. At least I am pretty sure I didn't laugh.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Loved it. Smiley is my new hero. Very good performance, a great film. Oldman's best performance since Nil By Mouth. Nice to see Kathy Burke on the big screen again, she is an actress of immense talent that stretches far beyond her performances with Harry Enfield and his sketch shows.
Code Unknown. Decent social biopic in my view revisited and better executed in both Hidden and The White Ribbon. Definitely part of the journey started with the glaciation trilogy combining to forming the germ of what was to become those two great films.
The White Ribbon. Absolutely brilliant. Taking the themes of isolation from the glaciation trilogy and applying them to the model of a small rural community. Lack of communication and repression tempered with biblical vengeance. An excellent film.
Talladega Nights. Awful.
Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. I fell asleep just as the monkeys escaped.

Loved every second. Never thought I'd enjoy a mockumentary again and this one just blew me away.

Super cool, super funny and creepy.

Makes me jealous that I didn't think of it first.

The Tim and Eric film was very good.

I had low expectations because most films made from most current television series are usually painfull.

Loved every second

I thought it had some good moments, but then kind of blew it, and descended into unfunny.

The Master: not quite great. But some great performances from the two leads.

The Hobbit looks great but is a kids' film.
"Ooh we're in trouble!" - someone you haven't seen in shot for 5 minutes rescues them.
"Ooh we're in trouble again !" - someone you haven't seen in shot for 10 minutes rescues them.
No good guys die.

Repeat.
