Bleak Week: Full Schedule Is Up

As we stated earlier in the week, we're just fans of Bleak Week. An assortment of movies most foul, but not in gross-outs or depravity, though some are; these ones stain your soul. These stay with and haunt you.
 

'Bleak Week: Cinema of Despair - Year 3'
Sat. Jun 1 - Fri. Jun 7, 2024
Aero Theatre, Egyptian Theatre and Los Feliz 3
 
What's so crazy about this one is that so many directors are coming to show off their utterly depressing work. And, it's really all crammed into one week.
 
In-person guests include: Jerry Schatzberg, Al Pacino, Kenneth Lonergan, Lynne Ramsay, Charlie Kaufman, Lynne Littman, Elliott Gould, Michael Rooker, Allen Hughes, Bernard Rose, Karyn Kusama, Steve De Jarnatt, Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi and Don Hertzfeldt
 
We've only already seen a handful or heard of them and they all just are on a different level, definitely not a fun one. These are ones to cry at or contemplate.
 
We're giving you a heads up, because we can see some of these selling out (some already have) and because, once again, we love the concept.

We say go deeper and have tissues packs with the Bleak Week logo on them. 
 
Maybe a showing of The End of Evangelion, we're not seeing much Japanese love. And, boy, do they know how to communicate messed-up sadness.

Go through the full schedule above.
