Monday Scenester Pick: Killer Whales at Frank's / Final Friday Preview, Vol. I: Andrew Jilka's "God Willing" at Invisible Hand

Readers, if you're like us, you spent part of your Thanksgiving holiday at the multiplex puzzling over the  philosophical (3D) conundrums of Ang Lee's Life of Pi and marveling at Tony Kushner's intricate, inspiring, and witty script for Spielberg's Lincoln.  But in the back of your mind you were thinking: I'd rather be at Frank's with some scenester cinephiles watching a killer whale munch on some sons-a-bitches!  Well, tonight's your night, as Frank's Monday Movie offers up 1977's Orca: the Killer Whale.   For Chip's money, this film features Ennio Morricone's very best score.  Yes, better than The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.


Another Final Friday is approaching and we haven't spotted as many "important" events as we'd like.  But the must-see event we've noticed so far will take place (no surprise) at Invisible Hand over in the Warehouse Arts District. 

Here's a bit of the synopsis of Andrew Jilka's "God Willing":

"Teasing out “nuances to situations that seem trivial or fleeting,” Jilka crosscuts and juxtaposes the frozen frame of a syndicated game show or full-contact sporting event with a mother tranquilly breastfeeding or a father embracing his child, face contorted. The series is striking — voyeurism alongside television, brutality next to affection."

You had us at "voyeurism."
