THE MATCH FACTORY GIRL (dir: Aki Kaurismäki, Not Rated) - Bart says, "You can't be in America and talk about the films of Aki Kaurismaki without mentioning his buddy Jim Jarmusch, whose films are similar in their deadpan grubbiness. However, unlike Jarmusch, who, with GHOST DOG and BROKEN FLOWERS, has recently flirted with more broadly appealing subject matter, Kaurismaki has stuck to his guns and continues almost exclusively to make movies about socially inept working class losers in Helsinki who fruitlessly turn to petty crime to improve their lousy lives. THE MATCH FACTORY GIRL is one of his first to gain an international reputation, and the best one you're likely to see anytime soon, since many of his most famous films (LENINGRAD COWBOYS GO AMERICA, for example) are not available domestically on DVD. Not as stylized and economic as his recent movies like MAN WITHOUT A PAST or LIGHTS IN THE DUSK, this one is seedy and realistic and inexplicably hilarious, considering how incredibly depressing the titular girl's life is."
THE ADVENTURES OF FORD FAIRLANE (dir: Renny Harlin, R) - Thom says, "In this life-changing epic, Andrew Dice Clay plays Ford Fairlane, 'Mr. Rock 'N Roll Detective.' Between scenes spewing love, comedy, incongruous references to Jimi Hendrix, and koalas hanged from ceiling fans, watch Ford hot on the case of some weird-looking chick who boned Bobby Black (played by Vince Neil of Mötley Crüe), super-dead ex-singer of The Black Plague. Watch Ford fight a weird S&M dude (Freddy Krueger actor Robert Englund) in the cabin of shock-jock Johnny Crunch(Gilbert Gottfried)'s boat The Mighty P-nis. Watch Ford wonder what the hell Julian Grendel (Wayne Newton) has to do with it, make fun of Lt. Amos (Ed O'Neill) for singing that stupid disco song, and chill with Don Cleveland (Morris Day! Of The Time!). Oh yeah, some kid who swears a lot and vaguely looks like Corey Feldman is searching for his long-last dad or whatever."
AFTER DARK, MY SWEET (dir: James Foley, R) – Greg says, "This is one of my three favorite movies. Why haven’t you seen it? It’s got swell performances from Jason Patric, Rachel Ward and a supremely sleazy Bruce Dern. It’s based on a book by pulp genius Jim Thompson and features all the taut dialogue you’d expect from a kidnapping caper gone wrong. It was shot on location in the delightfully seedy desert town of Indio, California in a manner so timeless that, if it wasn’t in color, you might expect John Garfield to do a walkthrough. Please don’t live another second of your life without seeing this neo-noir masterpiece."
