Last Chance Arts This Weekend

Written by

What to do this weekend? Well, you could do the usual, whatever that is – studying on
leibovitz a Saturday night, going to 1020, or the ever-fulfilling Carman parties. But there are some things that you can only do this weekend, because they’re soon shuffling off this mortal coil. To wit:

-Films closing Thursday include, at the AMC Loews 84th Street, the martial-arts epic Curse of the Golden Flower; at the Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, the pedophilia-in-academia heartwarmer The History Boys; and also at the Lincoln Plaza, the distinctively titled Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, which had one of the most bizarre trailers Bwog has ever seen. (Warning: trailer contains intimations of violence and Dustin Hoffman attempting some sort of pan-European accent). Hurry, because by Friday, these films will be replaced by the likes of The Hitcher.

-Closing this Sunday will be the Annie Leibovitz exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. Leibovitz is responsible for some of the most recognizable celebrity images of the past few decades, including Demi Moore naked and pregnant on the cover of Vanity Fair and a pre-Hollywood Squares Whoopi Goldberg emerging from a bathtub of milk. The exhibit covers her magazine photography as well as personal shots of herself and her partner, On Photography author Susan Sontag. Annie, if you’re reading this: want to shoot a cover for The Blue and White?

    NO MAN CAN CALL HIMSELF A PERFUMER UNLESS HE HAS PROVED HIS WORTH

    HISTORY BOYS is far-and-away the best movie of 2006. It's such a shame that the play closed... New York could use the hotness of that cast (Richard Griffiths excluded).

    EACH PERFUME CONTAINS THREE CHORDS, TWELVE NOTES IN ALL

    ONE CAN ONLY CREATE A TRULY ORIGINAL PERFUME BY ADDING ONE ESSENCE THAT WILL BRING OUT

    A PERFUME OF SUCH POWER THAT EVERY PERSON ON EARTH BELIEVED THAT THEY WERE IN PARADISE

  7. let's be honest  

    "The History Boys" was flat-out terrible. There's more to adapting a play for the screen than merely shooting static, dull, poorly paced scenes with clearly inexperienced actors. There's only one pedophilia-themed movie this year that succeeded, and that was "Notes on a Scandal" - perhaps because it didn't pretend that child molestation is a cute character quirk that goes along with genius.
