With government surveillance in the news, IFC Films’ release of DIRTY WARS could not be more timely. The documentary follows investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill, author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Mercenary Army, as he traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in U.S. history.
Reason.com just posted Scahill’s reactions to unfolding events.
Devourer of media (and world famous Oscar co-host) James Franco wasn’t satisfied just reading a book about video games while listening to Daft Punk in the lobby of our Music Hall 3 theater in Beverly Hills. No, he needed more and jumped right into a screening of LEVIATHAN… which he LOVED.
“This is life. Man versus nature. Man’s machines. Man’s mastery of the planet. Man’s destruction of the planet. Man’s ushering in of the apocalypse. But it is also beautiful.”

While LEVIATHAN is no longer in L.A. theaters, we encourage you to add it to your Netflix queue.
THE GHASTLY LOVE OF JOHNNY director Paul Bunnell will be at the Playhouse 7 for the Friday (May 17) show, along with cinematographer Francisco Bulgarelli and actor Jed Rowen (“Sluggo”). And at the Music Hall 3 on Friday (May 17) will be actors Will Keenan (“Johnny X”) and Les Williams (“Chip”) and costume designer Kristina West. They’ll have free JOHNNY X comic books to give away at both screenings while supplies last.
Paul Bunnell’s 1950s throwback dials up the weirdness of the already surreal genre of sci-fi B movies with show-stopping musical numbers, over-the-top dialogue, and hilariously hokey special effects.
THE SECOND MEETING is about the first two encounters of former American pilot Dale Zelko and former Yugoslav missile officer Zoltan Dani. The first was on radar in 1999, when Dani shot down Zelko’s F-117A stealth attack plane – the only one ever downed in combat — during the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia. The second was 12 years later, during peacetime, when they decided to meet face to face as civilians and friends.
John Osborne, National Director, faculty, and teacher trainer for Project Welcome Home Troops, who is featured in the film, FREE THE MIND, will participate in Q&A’s after the 7:30 PM screenings Friday-Sunday, May 17-19, at the Music Hall 3 and after the 11 AM screenings Saturday, May 18 at the Playhouse 7 and Sunday, May 19 at the Monicas.
