The Film Society of Lincoln Center

Cheap Thrills

The great pleasure of truly scary movies rests in the audience’s ability to digest and enjoy them, and then get as far away from them as possible once they leave the theater. (At least, that’s what I like best about scary movies, even if it does mean that I’ll spend large chucks of scary movie watching with my head tucked between my knees, simply as means of temporary reprieve.) Few types of films can be as invigorating and refreshing as a damn fine scary movie, so it’s fitting that the Film Society of Lincoln Center has just unveiled the lineup for their latest incarnation of the neatly-named “Scary Movies” screening series. The seventh in their annual series, the Film Society’s “Scary Movies” series is arriving just in time to capitalize on Halloween-themed thrills and chills. The series kicks off on Halloween night (October 31st, for those you who don’t celebrate any holidays, even the ones based on candy) and runs for a full week, winding down on November 7th, when its audience should be good and terrified until next year. This year’s lineup is packed with interesting premieres (U.S. and otherwise), very recognizable talent, and even a few revival screenings to keep classics-loving audience members very happy. The films of “Scary Movies 7” are also all very scary (with such a moniker, they better be), but surely, there has to be one that is the most scary of all.

If you’re a cinephile living in New York City, the wealth of movie-going options and special events open to you is simply staggering, but not many of them ring up at the bargain price of free. One of those rare, literally priceless events? The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Summer Talks Series. This year’s series kicked off on May 16th with a Before Midnight talk, featuring Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy, and Ethan Hawke all in conversation on the final film in their beloved trilogy. Last week, the society played host to Sofia Coppola as she chatted about this week’s new release, The Bling Ring. The rest of the summer’s series has long been set to include talks with the talent of such films as Museum Hours, Fruitvale Station, Crystal Fairy, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, and Drinking Buddies, but the society has now unveiled three additional talks, a trio of events that should tickle any movie lover living in Gotham. Fine, florid language aside, the Summer Talks will now include Only God Forgives director Nicholas Winding Refn, Prince Avalanche director David Gordon Green, and Passion director Brian De Palma, all chatting about their latest films in what should be some of the best cinema-serving events of the season. We’re already lined up for all three events as we type this (and, yes, we’ve included instructions for how to get tickets after the break, and no, it doesn’t include lining up now, dammit all).
