FILM CLUB: Fight Club Screening@Boa 8/14

Posted by Omar / August 10, 2006

Still feeling sad about The Parc closing? Not only do I feel sad about it, I’m practically seeped in Kafkaesque guilt. Why didn’t I go see Broken Flowers again like I said I would? Would it have killed me to see The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada? It got decent reviews, why didn’t I give it a chance?

Look, we can’t stop change from coming, and like mature adults we have to move on and adapt. And this is why I am starting a nice wholesome underground film club.

Films deserve a culture of their own. If we just let them remain commodities of big studios and their ‘boutique’ indie branches, filling up chain megaplexes then can we really be surprised when films like “Little Man” play in multiple screens across our lovely city?

Someone has to fight back, damnit. Dare I to dream of a space where we can watch great cool movies, and then congregate and discuss subtext, meaning, signs, signifiers and the overall hotness/coolness of the leads? You betcha. Say hello to FILM CLUB 2.0 (since I already had 1.0 in my apartment with a few friends a month ago).

The time - every Monday night starting at 8:30pm. The place - Boa Taverne Modern at 5301 St. Laurent. The movies are free. There might be some popcorn available. Drinks…that you'll have to pay for: what the fuck do you expect? A miracle?

Our first screening this Monday August 14, 2006 will be Fight Club by David Fincher. Starring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter and Meatloaf (best cast ever). Bring yourself, your imaginary friend, hell, bring along your bitch-tits. (Despite Mel’s unfortunate anti-Semitic remarks, I got to thank him for introducing me to the term ‘sugartits’.)

Why Fight Club? Aside from kicking off our Film Club with another film about a secretive club, it’s a perfect August film. It’s a sweaty, angry, fever dream of a film concerned with the construction of masculine identity in our post-modern consumerist world, and therefore it is completely feminist. If you disagree with this claim, come out and see the film and we’ll duke it out using quotations from Derrida and Sontag.

Week to week, we will show films that are strange, cultish, off the beaten track or just friggin’ good. And if you want to get involved, we’ll take requests. Show us that crazy film you’ve always wanted to watch and discuss in a public space, be it Tommy Boy or The Wrong Guy or Celine and Julie Go Boating, we don’t discriminate. Sure we’re snobs, but we’re tolerant snobs…sometimes.

Check this space for weekly postings on the films to come, and if you’re a film distributor or head of a major studio then…ha ha, we were only kidding. Pretend, you know, make believe…. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Nice! The first Monday I have off, I'm there. Which will probably be in October, but still. Derrida was a poseur.
