MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A longtime backup singer to some famous rock acts is scheduled to perform Friday night in Minneapolis. Merry Clayton, star of the documentary “Twenty Feet From Stardom,” will perform at a screening […]
Forget about the forecast. No, seriously. Pretend you didn’t just hear Mike Augustyniak toss out the possibility that parts of Minnesota could see up to a foot of snow later this week.
Think you’re going to catch a fallow period for moviegoing on the eve of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival next month? Think again.
The Oscars are next Sunday, so if you haven’t caught some of the worthy contenders like Lincoln, Zero Dark Thirty or Amour, there’s still a little bit of time. (And if you haven’t seen the also nominated Les Miserables, count yourself lucky.)
You’ve gotta love a week where a double bill of gutsy noir competes for attention with two fests’ worth of Nordic cinema and also screenings of Mike Leigh’s uncharacteristic period piece.
Attention enthusiasts of all things Nordic and those of Scandinavian blood: a blizzard of movies is making its way from Europe to the St. Anthony Main Theatre.
The Super Bowl is on ice, and the Oscars are still awhile away. Short of watching the Grammys next Sunday evening, you should have plenty of time to examine the wealth of movie options out there this week.
“Brief Encounters” is a documentary on the life and work of a contemporary American photographer who constructs images – massive, immaculate, indie-movie-scale images – that balance beauty with sadness through a perspective of resounding stillness.
The B movies are starting to push out some of the underperforming Oscar contenders from area multiplexes. Maybe it’s time to start looking elsewhere for your movie fixes.
First off, I love January, February and March. Every boilerplate-looking B-movie offers the chance to be delightfully surprised. Second, broaden your scope to explore some of this week’s indie and repertory choices.
The weekly “best bets” column took a few weeks off during the thick of the holiday season, but there are still plenty of cinematic presents under the Twin Cities tree.

If you’d like to catch something a little bit less in high public demand but still more than worth your time and extra effort, here are some of the best screening options for the next seven days.
If you’d like to avoid the crush of families itching to spend some time away from each other at the multiplex, there are a few more offbeat screening options this week you might want to consider. Here are some of the best screening options for the next seven days.
Dinner and a movie? How about the Food & Wine Film Festival (Oct. 25-28).
Film arts are flourishing in the Twin Cities attested to by a vibrant community that has supported its evolution over the years.
The weather’s been beastly hot for the last few days. Whether or not it stays that way through the rest of July, there are plenty of options at the Twin Cities’ rep and art houses to keep you indoors and out of the sun.
That Hollywood’s usual Jujyfruit summer offerings this year have been subpar is no secret. Though the season kicked off with the hit The Avengers, almost every big release since has underperformed or just tanked flat out.
A film festival celebrating the work of Minnesota high school students will be held Friday in Minneapolis.
The second to last night of MSPIFF bites … in a post-apocalyptic vampire kinda way.
The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival is winding down, but some of the biggest titles are still in play, at least so far as exposure on the international festival circuit goes. For instance, “My Joy.”
To be blunt, I’m not sure Catherine Breillat cares what I think about her movies. In fact, I’m sure she cares about what I don’t think about her movies. Actually, I suspect she thinks I don’t think at all.
