Pink Floyd – The Wall
Naro Night Owls Show Friday, February 10th at 11pm!

In this visual riff on Pink Floyd’s album “The Wall,” successful but drugged-out musician Pink (Bob Geldof) is looking back on his isolated childhood from the confines of a Los Angeles hotel room. Through a swirl of flashbacks and chemical-induced hallucinations, Pink recalls his lonely upbringing, during which he built a symbolic wall to the world as he coped with the death of his father (James Laurenson) and the overbearing ways of his mother (Christine Hargreaves). An iconic cult classic in high-def and Dolby Surround-Sound! (R, 1h 39m)
Ticket are $11 for adults, $9 for late-show veterans (that is, seniors over 65!)

The world is a mysterious place when seen through the eyes of an animal. EO, a grey donkey with melancholic eyes, meets good and bad people on his life’s path, experiences joy and pain, endures the wheel of fortune randomly turn his luck into disaster and his despair into unexpected bliss. But not even for a moment does he lose his innocence. (in Polish with subtitles, 1h 28m)
“EO is a thrillingly imaginative piece of filmmaking: a strange, haunting epic about a donkey that couldn’t feel more of our moment.” – John Powers, NPR
“EO is an astonishment and so too is this wild, boldly expressionistic movie that conveys the life of its largely silent protagonist with a bare minimum of dialogue.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
96% critics consensus on Rotten Tomatoes!
Based on the best-selling novel by Miriam Toews, Women Talking follows a group of women in an isolated religious colony as they struggle to reconcile their faith with a series of sexual assaults committed by the colony’s men. (PG-13, 1h 44m)
“Immaculately made, intellectually adventurous and politically incisive…” – Todd McCarthy, Deadline Hollywood Daily
“Much has been said about the year’s best films not attracting the audiences they deserve. Women Talking is not what one would call a crowd-pleaser, but it is an extraordinary piece of work that is well worth your time. ” – Leonard Maltin, leonardmaltin.com
“Women Talking compels you to think about their plight, but it also invites you to enjoy their company.” A.O. Scott, New York Times
A reclusive English teacher suffering from severe obesity attempts to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter for one last chance at redemption. Directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Brandon Fraser. (R, 1h 57m)
“Fraser delivers the best work of his career” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
“Brendan Fraser is on the march to Oscar. That’s how astonishing he is as a morbidly obese recluse in this deeply moving character study. Accusations that wearing a fatsuit diminishes his tour de force performances are nonsense. This is essential viewing.” – Peter Travers, ABC News

The Movie: With its quirky characters and clever, quotable dialogue, Clerks is the ultimate clarion call for slackers everywhere to unite and, uh, do something we guess? Dante (Brian O’Halloran) is called in to cover a shift at his New Jersey convenience store on his day off. His friend Randal (Jeff Anderson) helps him pass the time, neglecting his video-store customers next door to hang out in the Quick Stop. The uneventful day is disrupted by news that one of Dante’s ex-girlfriends has died. After attending her memorial service, Dante muses over staying with current girlfriend Veronica (Marilyn Ghigliotti) or reuniting with ex Caitlin (Lisa Spoonhauer).
