Funny Pages at Angelika
This coming-of-age story — the latest from A24 — about an aspiring comic-book artist is less whimsical than it is refreshingly caustic — and funny.
Purple Noon at Film Forum
The O.G. adaptation of The Talented Mr. Ripley is a must-see with the same 60s coastal Italian-vacation energy. In French, starring a svelte and hunky Alain Delon.
Queen of Diamonds at Metrograph
Mostly plotless, this is a film of vibes — the soullessness of capitalism, the decaying mystique of the West — and astonishing cinematography — a burning palm tree, red nails over a deck of cards — that is paradoxically beautiful as it captures the ugliness of Las Vegas.
Play Misty For Me at Metrograph
Before she was Lucille Bluth, Jessica Walters played an unhinged girlfriend obsessed with Clint Eastwood. Think Fatal Attraction but in Monterey.
Emily the Criminal at Nitehawk
Watch Aubrey Plaza become a law-breaking citizen when she can't pay back her student loans.
