This week, there's only one movie sponsored by AB, since the 2005 student Film Festival will be taking place from April 7 to 10. This year's festival theme is "In My Shoes," focusing on diversity in America. I encourage you to attend these films if you are interested in learning more about the various races, ethnic backgrounds, orientations, and cultures in America. Also if you want to watch Mel Brooks and company make fart jokes around a campfire.
Wednesday, April 6
7:30, 10, 12:30
This movie, one of many Tim Burton?Johnny Depp collaborations, features Depp as Edward Wood, one of the worst movie directors of all time (anyone who's ever seen [ITAL]Plan 9 From Outer Space[ITAL] knows what I'm talking about.) I saw this movie when I was nine, with my parents, and thus probably didn't appreciate a lot of it, including Martin Landau's depiction of Bela Lugosi, Bill Murray as a striving transsexual, and Johnny Depp in drag. Today, I know better.
