All you jiveass cornpone peckerwoods head down to the Way Out Club on Tuesday September 3rd for Super-8 Movie Madness featuring the Blaxploitation Triple Feature! The Blaxploitation film era has had an enormous impact on American cinema and culture and its influence can still be seen today. If you dig black culture, music, and lingo from the 70′s you’ll have a chance to take in a triple threat of urban cinema presented on Super-8 sound film projected on a big screen with condensed (average length: 17 minutes) versions of three iconic Blaxploitation classics: Pam Grier in Coffy, Richard Roundtree in Shaft, and Fred ‘The Hammer’ Williamson in That Man Bolt!
The non- Blaxploitation films we’re showing on September 3rd are: John Carpenter’s Dark Star, Gil Lamb in the comedy short Baby Makes Two, the sexy caveman spoof When Women Had Tails, Abbott and Costello in Midget Car Maniacs, »

Down and Out: Solanas’ Latest Lost in its Own Concept
For his latest film Upside Down, a French Canadian production from director Juan Diego Solanas, star crossed lovers are separated by not only bitterly enforced classist social mores, but the forces of gravity itself. A love story folded into high concept science fiction, Solanas attempts to create a brave new universe of diametrically opposed planes of existence, like if a bridge was built between Earth I and Earth II in Another Earth (2011) and humans reverted/continued to engage in savage tactics of colonization and segregation. Unfortunately, there’s absolutely no character development, tossing a poorly realized and mundane love story at us that’s furthered only by its nicely varnished visuals.
