Showtimes a few days before?

Movie theaters seem to only post show times on their websites for Friday-Thursday on Friday which makes it difficult to make advance plans for Friday night. Is there some other website/service that posts the times earlier? (I vaguely remember finding some site that did that, but I can't find it now). Also, why do theaters do things this way?

English Subtitles for "Moscow I love you."

There is a film series of short films called "cities of love." The most common one is "New York, I love you." and "Paris, j t'aime" which are all over the place. However, my friend said "Moskva, ya lyublyu tebya!" (Moscow, I love you) is really good, but I can't find the English subtitles. I already have the movie, I just need the subtitles file. (Though hints on finding the movie with subtitles is also appreciated!) Any ideas where to look? This movie seems to be really obscure!

What are some movies based on longform journalism stories?

What are some movies based on longform journalism stories? So far I'm coming up with Bernie (Midnight in the Garden of East Texas in Texas Monthly), 21 (Hacking Los Vegas in Wired), and Into Thin Air (Into Thin Air in Outside) but there must be more! (I think Into the Wild was a book first and not an article, but I could be wrong.) Both names of movies and links to the articles that inspired them would be most helpful.

Help me identify southern state politician from a movie

Many years ago I recall watching a movie, where this southern state politician (supposedly based on a true character) was pulling dirty tricks during his campaign. IIRC, he for example accused his competitor of being a "humanist", along with several other carefully chosen praise words which, to his uneducated voters, sounded like insults. Does anyone know which movie I am referring to, or who this politician was?

Seeking movies to help me think about clothes.

I want to learn about the cultural significance of clothing, as well as how clothes are made, but I want my process to be fun. What do you think are the best popular Hollywood-style movies, in which the characters discuss what clothes mean to them? What about movies in which the characters are involved with the sewing or designing of clothing? Do garments play a major part in the plot of any movies? Any suggestions for movies that have helped you to think about clothes would be most appreciated.

Analysis of a line from Shakespeare's Coriolanus

You know how sometimes when you watch (or read) a Shakespeare play, you come across a something which makes you go "Holy crap, that's one of the greatest pieces of English I've ever heard, but I'm not quite sure what it means". This happens especially often for me because I'm not a native English speaker. Well, I just watched the movie adaptation of Coriolanus a few weeks ago and I need one of the lines explained to me.

How much are tickets for AFI Fest?

I've never been to a film festival, but I'm really curious about AFI Fest since I'm taking steps to move to Los Angeles in the next five years and I don't really travel (so I can't go to bigger, similar festivals like TIFF or NYFF). How much do the tickets cost? Do you have to buy a different ticket for each screening? I'm curious how much money I should budget if I want to attend.

A good friend of a friend completed production of an independent film earlier this year. They've submitted it to festivals and are just waiting to hear back now.

How to buy the rights to a crappy movie?

My friend is a fan of really crappy 80s and 90s movies. I want to buy him the rights to some piece of %$&^ film. Of course, I'd prefer it had some star quality (could just be John Belushi's brother or something). How much would something like this cost? How would I go about doing it? I don't suppose that there's an ebay style auction site where you could do something like that?

Fashion documentaries that simulate people watching?

I love the aesthetic of the pictures that Bill Cunningham takes for the New York Times or that Scott Schuman takes for The Sartorialist. I often wish their pictures moved. Are there any good documentaries or other videos that essentially allow you to stare at interestingly-dressed people in urban environs and just watch what they do?

What are your favorite books, movies, and essays about food?

I am putting together a syllabus for a college composition course. I chose "food" as the theme for this semester. I would like to include examples of different kinds of writing about food, ranging from essays to fiction to poetry, as well as some movies. What are your suggestions? I'm open to anything, as long as it has food in it!
