This Weekend: MoMA Screening Undistributed Gothams Nominees

I have one last emphatic exhortation left in me at the end of this sluggish week at Reeler HQ, and I've been saving it for the best cause I know: As noted here a while ago, the 2006 IFP Gotham Awards nominations reflect a strenuous binge of starfucking not seen since around these parts since, well, last year. But tucked down the list where Hollywood won't find them are five nominees in a new category, Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You, and to the starfuckers' eternal credit, all five have been booked into MoMA for weekend screenings.

I would rank three of these titles -- In Between Days (above), Wristcutters: A Love Story and Choking Man -- among the best, most imaginative films I've seen this year. I haven't viewed Colma: The Musical and The Great Happiness Space, but based on the good taste of they who programmed the first three, I'll assume they're worth a look. At any rate, do your part and support these movies lest someone sell their respective tables at the awards show to Warner Bros. You won't regret it.
