Bwog’s Guide to the Weekend

Written by

As if you needed a reason to get out of Morningside Heights and into one of the greatest cities in the world. Nevertheless, Bwog offers a few.

Joshua Bell and Jeremy Denk

Thursday: 8pm – $28-$94 – Stern/Perelman Theatre at Carnegie Hall – Bwog’s heartthrobbingest interview ever will perform alongside another whippersnapper of the classical music scene. Works by Tartini, Prokofiev, Dvorak, and Grieg.

Dawn of Japanese Animation

Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 7pm Thurs, 7pm Fri, 5pm & 7:30pm Sat – $4.50 for students – Japan Society – Combining anime and vintage status, this festival should be unbearably hip. Each night will feature a block of antiquated manga shorts organized around a theme like “Horror and Comedy” and “Propaganda.”

Eddie Izzard

Thursday through February 23: 10:30 – $40 – Union Square Theater – He’s funny stuff! And so pretty! And so British!

The Films of Louis Malle: “Atlantic City”

Friday, Saturday, Sunday – $10.75 – IFC Center – If the past week of New Jersey promotions on Bwog have you excited, but not quite excited enough to actually leave Manhattan, check out this classic about the Garden State’s sin shed.

Film Comment Selects

Thursday through February 28 – $7 for students – Film Society of Lincoln Center at Walter Reade Theatre – The supposed international best of movies from the past year will include zombies (George Romero’s Diary of the Dead), “a Belgian Spinal Tap” (Ex Drummer), and kookier still, 19th century French aristocrats (The Duchess of Langeais).

Documentary Fortnight 2008

All weekend through March 3 – $12 for students – MoMA – For the serious-minded moviegoer, here’s a series largely about the environment, with a few films examining war, memory, and gender thrown in for good measure.

Yelle w/ Kap10Kurt, Pash(ly), and DJ Lauren Flax

Tuesday – $15 – Knitting Factory – Okay, so this isn’t a weekend event at all, but this spandexcellent French dance music would be a welcome break about midweek. If you must stay in, at least watch this positively aerobic video.
