"Climax, with its hallucinatory, often horrific images, its relentless, bass-heavy music and its vertiginous camera movements, assaults the senses and scrambles the brain."—A.O. Scott, NYTimes
In the mid 90's, 20 urban dancers join together for a three-day rehearsal in a closed-down boarding school located at the heart of a forest to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl. Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And it's soon impossible for them to resist to their neurosises and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rhythm of the music. While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell.

Becky Something, the brilliant and brash frontwoman for the '90s rock band Something She, is foul-mouthed, nihilistic, and incredibly talented. Mother of one, bandmate to two, and friend to none, Becky is at the height of her career and the top of the party game — with only one direction to go. Drawing from examples of experiential filmmaking by the likes of John Cassavetes and Paul Thomas Anderson, filmmaker Alex Ross Perry whips his characters and sequences into a frenzy of substance abuse and personal combustion as we follow Becky through backstage antics and hostile recording sessions. Supported by a slew of perfectly cast recognizable faces—including Ashley Benson, Cara Delevingne, Amber Heard, Virginia Madsen, Dan Stevens, and Eric Stoltz—Elisabeth Moss is a tour de force as Becky, the eye of this hurricane, tearing everything she cares about apart until all that is left is to rebuild.

An unconventional work in every way, Godfrey Reggio’s Koyaanisqatsi was nevertheless a sensation when it was released in 1983. This first work of The Qatsi Trilogy wordlessly surveys the rapidly changing environments of the Northern Hemisphere, in an astonishing collage created by the director, cinematographer Ron Fricke, and composer Philip Glass. It shuttles viewers from one jaw-dropping vision to the next, moving from images of untouched nature to others depicting human beings’ increasing dependence on technology Koyaanisqatsi’s heterodox methods (including hypnotic time-lapse photography) make it a look at our world from a truly unique angle.
