TONIGHT! Friday, February 10 I “They Eat Scum” + “Goodbye 42nd Street”  Nick Zedd’s infamous Super 8 movie that inspired the Cinema of Transgression movement, “They Eat Scum” showcases the film movement’s intent to shock the viewer into reconsidering society’s structures. As Zedd himself put it: “If it’s not transgressive, it’s not underground. It has to be threatening the status quo by doing something surprising, not just imitating what’s been done before.”  Filled with surrealist imagery, B-movie aesthetics, and comedic absurdity, “They Eat Scum” illustrates the re-evaluation of amateur aesthetics that was the hallmark of No Wave Cinema. Screens with “Goodbye 42nd Street,” a profile of the diverse nature of 42nd street in 1986, this film contrasts this iconic street with surrealist scenes.  Capturing this iconic neighborhood just before its transformation during the Giuliani era, “Goodbye 42nd Street” is an artistic remnant of a bygone Manhattan.

Hot Tickets: New York

Here are this week’s Hot Tickets in the New York area. Check back every Friday at noon, EST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

TONIGHT! Friday, January 27 I Pizza Man  Julie and Alice are at their wits end. Everything has gone wrong. Julie has lost her job. Alice’s lover has gone back to his wife. They are frustrated with no outlet. What would a guy do? They decide to rape the pizza delivery guy. Will they find any satisfaction and power in their lives?  Do any of us?

TONIGHT! Friday, January 27 I Stranger Than Paradise  Jarmusch’s second feature-length film, “Stanger Than Paradise” would launch both Jarmusch and No Wave Cinema into the international spotlight when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and won the Caméra d’Or prize. Following a self-styled New York hipster who is paid a surprise visit by his pretty 16-year-old Hungarian cousin, “Stranger than Paradise” examines the duo’s initial hostility and indifference that transitions into a strange affection between two exiles. Continuing on to win the Golden Leopard at the 1984 Locarno International Film Festival, the Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, and National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Picture “Stranger than Paradise” captures not only the spirit of New York City in the 1980s but also the talent and vision of a burgeoning American cinematic voice.
