Our weekly look at what’s weird in theaters, on hot-off-the-presses DVDs, and on more distant horizons…
This is when the movies take the week off, ceding the field to the latest iteration of Star Wars. (Many repertory theaters even take this opportunity to close for renovations.) We should have more for you next week. The 2018 season kicks off in earnest in January at Sundance.
