HUSBANDS (dir: John Cassavetes, PG-13) - Michelle says, "Forget THE HANGOVER: this Cassavetes classic features three men on the original bender. Being a product of early seventies postmodern film, though, its grittier, meaner, and truer to life in its thesis on gender and fidelity. Its cinema verite style traps us in drawn out scenes of ad-libbed, manic dialogue; in fact, the entire film is definitely too long. But that feeling of being stuck in a self-made middle-aged lifestyle punctuated by travel, work, inane conversation, sex, love, drink, friendship, and finally death is sort of its point. So Cassavetess achievement here, in challenging the audience with long, raucous scenes of public yelling, singing, and vomiting, is significant."

ZABRISKIE POINT (dir: Michelangelo Antonioni, R) - Bart says, "Depending on your viewpoint, you might consider Antonioni's American youth culture time capsule a pointless, self-indulgent trip to nowhere in which nothing happens. Or you could be like me and consider it a brilliant analysis of the eternal struggle between the restlessness of one generation and the status quo of the previous. At the time, it was rejected by fans of films like EASY RIDER and TWO-LANE BLACKTOP because its rebellious protagonists are as empty-headed as the adults they despise, but today its message seems more timeless than the simple rallying cries of those other counterculture road trip movies."
THE BALLAD OF CABLE HOGUE (dir: Sam Peckinpah, R)  Kurt says, "It takes dedication to watch a slow-moving western and thats what youll need for this adventure into dust and lust. Fueled by everything boring (land-rights, male-female relationships, prostitution, rattlesnakes) this movie is a lighter look at what the west is all about owning property. Ive made it sound awful, but its actually a nice change of pace and perspective that makes for a beautiful portrayal of life and morality. SENSUAL!"
