You can now rent your own private AMC movie theater for up to 20 people with rates starting at $99 and increasing to $349 depending on the movie, theater location and other add-ons. It's part of the chain's effort to stay afloat during the pandemic

#AFIFEST #ShadowintheCloud starts off as a pretty good, enclosed space thriller, with #ChloeGraceMoretz as a mysterious woman on a WWII flight over the Pacific. But there's SOMETHING ON BOARD, and halfway through the whole enterprise jumps the gremlin. Purposely ridiculous? Maybe

So far, the #AFIFEST gem is, like at other #filmfestivals, #MichelFranco's #neworder. It's a take no prisoners (metaphorically; prisoners are actually taken in the movie) Mexican class war bloodbath, as scabrous and unforgiving as a hopelessly unfair society can be. Exhilarating.

From the animation studio that brought us #SecretofKells and #TheBreadwinner, #Wolfwalkers is a stirring, gorgeous 2-D allegory of resistance, allyship & sheer forest magic set in 17th Century occupied Ireland. Another #AFIFEST goodie, this folkloric feast is coming to #AppleTV+.

Minimal-dialogue child abduction #horror/thriller #TheBoyBehindtheDoor @AFIFEST is a true triumph of cinematic language over not a whole lot of substance. #KristinBauervanStraten is an unusually chilling villain and yes, the whole thing's a total nail-biter.

#AFIFEST #TragicJungle starts out as a young-woman-in-peril thriller on the Colonial Belize-Mexico border, then slowly, mesmerizingly mutates into something much weirder, woke and psychosexual, a rain forest take on Yucatan's Xtabay myth by way of #TreasureoftheSierraMadre.

#Belushi, seen @AFIFEST, is about what you'd expect. Rare recordings by the late comedian, fond/appalled remembrances by his famous & not friends, cautions against ego and overindulgence balanced with praise of his singular genius. Fun clips, overarching sadness, few new insights

Now that parts of New York have gotten permission to reopen cinemas, the onus is on Hollywood to debut new movies. Industry experts, however, are still skeptical that studios will find it profitable enough to release big-budget films during the pandemic
