I’ve been informed that many if not all of the screenings of “12 Years a Slave” at the Uptown Theatre were sold out this weekend, so I guess the first thing that should be on your movie checklist for the coming week would be that, if you weren’t among the lucky ones to snag a ticket.

“The Butler” scored a #1 berth in its debut week in theaters, which means the summer movie season is more or less officially over. In that vein, there’s a bunch of serious (and seriously humorous) screening options around town this week.
When one door closes, another opens, so they say. Wit that in mind, the Walker Art Center is offering free gallery admission for the next few weeks while they complete a construction project.
You know how it goes when you get back from vacation … you have twice as much on your plate as you did when you left. The maxim holds true for movies as well.
“The Act of Killing” is perhaps one of the most assaultive and abrasive documentaries on the nature of violence ever made. Few films attempt anything so reckless and edifying. It is a queasy, unforgettable achievement.
