Creepy Communities

This week's theme sounds silly but the film selection is full of intrigue, murder, and deals with prevalent issues of race relations, teen suicide, and sexism in America. If you missed "Get Out," the breakout film debut from Jordan Peele, you can catch it this week along with Sofia Coppola’s 1999 film debut "The Virgin Suicides." "Hot Fuzz" and "The Stepford Wives" rounds out the week reminding us all that a white picket fence does not a safe community make.


Hot Fuzz

A quintessential city cop is transferred to a sleepy town and stuck with a dimwitted partner. When fatal accidents begin to occur, the unlikely duo work to unearth the mystery behind the deaths. (2007)

This week’s lineup features films spanning 18 years of Anderson’s career, “Bottle Rocket,” “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,” and “The Grant Budapest Hotel.”
