At the Arthouse

Non-multiplex flick picks this week




The Cinematheque's Cleveland Cult Film Festival 3 continues with Chan-wook Park's 2003 masterpiece about a guy who's locked in a hotel room for 15 years. After he's released, with no explanation for his imprisonment, he turns on his "revenge" switch. Then the fun begins. Hollywood is remaking it and will most likely fuck it up. So see the original now. It's one of the best movies of the new millennium, well worth catching on the big screen. At the Cinematheque. At 9:50 p.m. Friday, March 30, and 9:20 p.m. Saturday, March 31. — Michael Gallucci
