Sunday, 9/10

Shortbus - 9 pm - Ryerson

Definitely not a film for everyone. A brutally frank comedy/drama about young 20-somethings trying to figure out their relationships in New York. The film is earmarked for NC-17 before the credits really get going, with its explicit sex. But after the credits, the film's shock value either goes away or we forget about it and instead become involved in the characters lives and decisions.

Black Sheep - Midnight - Ryerson

There are 40 million sheep in New Zealand. And they're pissed off. Broadly played comedy/horror mixture for the most part delivers. It's never scary, but certainly throws in the blood. There is something just funny/wrong about seeing sheep attack humans with a thirst for blood. Also throw in the dynamic that if you are bit, you will become a were-sheep and you have a film that save for some slow stretches early, is an definite for any midnight program.
