Our weekly look at what’s weird in theaters, on hot-off-the-presses DVDs and Blu-rays (and hot off the server VODs), and on more distant horizons…

Trailers of new release movies are generally available at the official site links.


There There: Experimental film starring seven characters who are never seen together in the same shot. (Computer Chess) appears inspired by the pandemic, Zoom calls and Tik-Toks; critical response was muted. There There official site.


Flaming Ears (1991): A crazy Austrian underground lesbian film from the early 90s set in the distant post-apocalyptic future (2700, to be exact). No idea why Kino Lorber suddenly decided to dust off (and restore) this would-be cult film that didn’t make much of a splash on its original release, but we’re glad they did: it is supremely weird (as the trailer will attest). Playing in LA and NYC this week, with future dates in Seattle and San Francisco.  Flaming Ears official site.


This section will no longer be updated regularly. Instead, we direct you to our new “Repertory Cinemas Near You” page. We will continue to mention exceptional events in this space from time to time, however.

This week we added a new theater to the repertory cinema list, Seattle’s The Beacon. We’re not sure how long this venue has been open but we just noticed it, and it’s masthead still reads “a new movie theater in Columbia City.” Their taste looks excellent, as they’re showing Weekend on Friday (today!); Roar on Saturday (11/19); The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover on Wednesday (11/23); and they’re even screening Fantasy Mission Force (a movie we’ve never seen on a rep theater marquee before) a week from today (11/25). Let’s hope they’re a huge success!


Röckët Stähr’s Death of a Rockstar (2022): A psychedelic animated rock opera about a four-armed musician in a future dystopia where rock music is banned. The promotional material cites Yellow Submarine, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Tommy, and Jesus Christ Superstar as influences; looks like there might be a touch of The Apple in it, too. A new release debuting directly to free-streaming platforms. Watch Röckët Stähr’s Death of a Rockstar free on Tubi.


Join us tomorrow (November 19) at 10:15 PM for a Weird Watch Party of Modus Operandi (2009). This will be our first attempt to stream a movie via Discord, so be sure you have an account. (You do not necessarily need to download the Discord app—you should be fine using the browser option.) There may be technical hiccups. The link to join will drop here, on Facebook, and on Twitter around 9:55 PM.

Next week’s short Thanksgiving week will include Giles Edwards on the psychedelic rock musical Vide Noir (2022, based on Lord Huron’s 2018 album of the same name), while confronts Brazil’s Medusa (2022), about a gang of fanatically religious women who terrorize their community at night. Onward and weirdward!
