50 Years of Monty Python
Oct 4-6
Aero Theatre 1328 Montana Avenue,
Santa Monica, CA 90403

Drawing on the genius of its members (including Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Eric Idle, to name only the proverbial few), the movies came at intervals every several years, even after the original, legendary television series went off the air in 1973. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Monty Python, here is a smattering of the very cream of the frothy crop, including the outrageous MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL and MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE, along with such Python-related features as A FISH CALLED WANDA, ERIK THE VIKING and FIERCE CREATURES.

First Love
Starts Oct 4
Select Theaters

It's the newest movie from Takashi Miike that's made it stateside, so weird WTF Japan fun.
"When a duplicitous scheme by the low-level yakuza, Kase (Shota Sometani) goes hilariously wrong, a terminally ill boxer, Leo (Masataka Kubota), and a disturbed drug addicted call girl, Monica (Sakurako Konishi), find themselves innocently caught in the crosshairs of two warring gangs. Over the course of the increasingly ludicrous night, the two fall passionately in love, while the hail of bullets and blood fall quietly in the background."
