Re: “Unfriended: a sly horror movie for the social-media minefield that is modern life

Jason does not lie. UNFRIENDED is well worth your time. Ideally you'd watch it at home on your computer with people Skyping in. I loved BLAIR WITCH (and still do) partly because of the way I saw it: handed to me as a bootleg tape without a word of warning months before its release.

EX MACHINA opens next Friday in Nashville.

Re: “#NaFF15: How to Do the Nashville Film Festival in Just Five Movies

You might have seen the short "Krisha," which played before at NaFF. This is the expanded feature, which won a major prize at SXSW last month.

MERU is indeed a hot ticket — the folks who saw it at True/False went weak in the knees. Ditto (T)ERROR, which I believe is playing again this afternoon.

CUB is reviewed in the cover-story preview. Our writer Noel Murray wasn't blown away, but maybe it's one of those YMMV items like THE LADIES OF THE HOUSE where affection for the genre might make it a lot more fun Here's the CUB trailer, which is pretty exciting:

Make sure you're not bringing knives to a gunfight with Adam Ross.

Re: “Why Barbara Stanwyck's tough-ahead-of-their-time women seem so fresh and startling today

Thanks, Joel. I've never seen THE BARBARA STANWYCK SHOW, but I spent countless afternoons as a kid watching reruns of THE BIG VALLEY. For a long time I couldn't look at Stanwyck without hearing her snarl, "Show me some of Tom Barkley's guts!"

Re: “Why Barbara Stanwyck's tough-ahead-of-their-time women seem so fresh and startling today

@Barbara: Thanks for pointing out THE FURIES. That's an amazing movie, and I feel pretty certain that's the Anthony Mann title Craig's referring to. I'd love to see it on the big screen too (although Criterion's DVD set is terrific).

It's worth pointing out that the double bills run $12 ($9 for members), and you can't pay a reduced admission to catch just one of the movies — something my family learned the hard way when we all went to see DOUBLE INDEMNITY last weekend. I can't really complain, though, when the double bills are this good. The BABY FACE/NIGHT NURSE and REMEMBER THE NIGHT/THERE'S ALWAYS TOMORROW bills are something you'll probably never get to see again here on the big screen.
