BULLHEAD
July 24, 7:30 PM

BULLHEAD netted an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Film. Its chilling narrative tells the story of underworld activity in the European beef market through the eyes of one of its enforcers. Mattias Schoenarts is unforgettable in the role of the tough but damaged man dependent on illegal hormones. Drafthouse Films founder Tim League in person to introduce. More info and tickets >>

THE KILLING OF A CHINESE BOOKIE

FOUR LIONS
July 26, 8 PM

FOUR LIONS is one of the best true film satires in years. It takes a look at the inner workings of a London terrorist cell as they prepare for a suicide bombing spree. By turns hilarious and moving, FOUR LIONS was an auspicious debut for Drafthouse Films as a releasing orgaization. Drafthouse Films founder Tim League in person to introduce. More info and tickets >>

WAKE IN FRIGHT
July 28, 7 PM

WAKE IN FRIGHT, rediscovered a few short years ago after being given up as lost, is one of the finest Australian movies ever made. It is the story of a young teacher on holiday who is waylaid in a remote town in the outback where men make beasts of themselves. Soon he makes a beast of himself. With Donald Pleasance in one of the best roles of his career. More info and tickets >>

THE ACT OF KILLING 
(at Alamo Drafthouse Village)

July 31, 7 PM

One of the most shocking, imaginative, and moving documentaries we have ever seen. The filmmakers have challenged three unrepentant former Indonesian death squad leaders to tell their stories on film in whichever genre they choose. These brutal, banal, old men express themselves in self-justifying gangster and musical scenarios that are as weird as they are infuriating. Like no other film ever made. A terrifying education. More info and tickets >>
