Bend It Like Brooklyn

The BAMcinemaFest is going strong out in Brooklyn this week - it's where I saw the fan-fucking-tastic flick Nasty Baby the other day and tonight I'll be seeing Henry Gamble's Birthday Party, which is the latest from The Wise Kids director Stephen Cone. Here is my review of The Wise Kids -- that was a great smart empathetic movie about youth and religion and sexuality (for lack of a better word), and I'm seriously looking forward to see what he has up his sleeve this time. 

Tomorrow night I'll be seeing The Invitation, which is the latest movie from Karen Kusama, who directed Girlfight (which I still have never seen) but more importantly the terrific and woefully underrated Jennifer's Body. I don't say "more importantly" because I care more about the latter film but because The Invitation's another horror flick. Oh plus it stars (amongst others) Logan Marshall-Green & Michiel Huisman. Hello, you two. Neither of them are supposed to be there for the Q&A though... boo, you two.
