Charlie Says – Q&A with Director Mary HarronMay 8, 2019
Biography / 2019 / 104 minutes
Having tackled the psychotic mind so brilliantly with American Psycho, director Mary Harron's latest effort Charlie Says manages to explore the well-tread territory of the Manson cult with fresh effectiveness. Giving her story a distinctly feminine perspective, Harron's film centers itself on a real-life grad student (Merritt Wever) who attempts to bring three of the incarcerated Manson women back to reality, and in doing so forces them to confront – via flashback – the horror of their actions as well as the abusive, manipulating monster behind them. Subjects such as gender politics and abuse of power give the 70s era proceedings a timely relevance, and Harron's cast – which features former Doctor Who Matt Smith bringing his full charisma to his portrayal of Manson – is uniformly excellent, imbuing some of history's most misunderstood and reviled figures with pathos and humanity. With Hannah Murray, Suki Waterhouse, Sosie Bacon, Chace Crawford and Annabeth Gish.

I Shot Andy Warhol – Featuring Introduction by Director Mary HarronMay 5, 2019
Drama / 1996 / 103 minutes
Valerie Solanas (Lili Taylor) is an aspiring writer who moves to New York City and supports herself with prostitution.

While a book publisher wants Valerie to write a sexually explicit novel, Valerie sets out to convince Warhol to produce her play "Up Your Ass." Based on on true story, the film follows Valerie's journey from ambitious author to obsessed, delusional assassin.
American Psycho – Featuring Introduction by Director Mary HarronMay 3, 2019
Thriller / 2000 / 102 minutes
Mary Harron's long-gestating American Psycho hit screens in 2000 to muted fanfare, but thanks to home video is now seen as one of the most notable, quotable cult films of the decade. Like the Bret Easton Ellis novel from which it is adapted, Harron's film is a pitch black skewering of 80s yuppie culture as told through the warped lens of a status hungry young bank investor (Christian Bale) with a penchant for business cards, pop music and murder. Bale proves his leading man meddle in a performance that vacillates magnificently between smarmy cool and unhinged mania, and with Harron's direction deftly balancing gut-busting laughs with gut-churning violence, the film lands in that sweet spot between comedy and horror that makes for a cult classic. Best of all, you will never hear the music of Huey Lewis and the News the same way again. With a star-laden supporting cast that features Willem Dafoe, Jared Leto, Reese Witherspoon, Samantha Mathis, Chloe Sevigny and Justin Theroux.
