Lower East Side May 2-6

This just a quick pointer toward the Lower Eastside Film Festival that runs starting this week in New York.

This small festival may not program a vast selection of films, but what they program is choice. I’ve covered their selections many times over the last few years because they are always bringing special little films to New York.

This year I’ve actually seen all the films playing except the opening and closing films, which I going to review soon.

The new films I’ve seen before are: 


In addition to the new films they are also celebrating a few films on their 25th anniversary. All three changed cinema in their wake

CRUEL INTENTIONS is a teenage version of the oft filmed Les liaisons dangereuses by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos which tells the story of a love hate relationship that destroys themselves and the people they are seeking to manipulate

BUT I’M A CHEERLEADER is about a cheerleader who is sent to a conversion camp by her parents who think she is gay and she ends up being converted.

AMERICAN MOVIE is the classic look at one man's attempt to make a film and having it go badly

If you can I suggest you check the website for a schedule and but tickets and go.
