A non-linear, live-action anime about a Buddhist hobo trapped inside a video game where his only chance to win is by reversing his karma. Yet, the harder he tries to be a hero, the darker his path becomes. Stumbling between a strip club, an asylum, and prison -- the clumsy pilgrimage only leads him further away from sanity and Enlightenment.  But with the guidance of a monk inside a dumpster and a demon inside his head, the Buddhist hobo learns to cheat his way to the last level! -JMG

This intriguing and thought provoking experimental documentary crawls over, under and inside the leftover 'dead zones' of the California road and freeway system, finding an eclectic mix of people who inhabit, explore, and re-purpose these liminal spaces, sometimes uncovering a world to call their own.  Urban planners, artists and engineers reflect on the sociological considerations about the built environment, including interviews with KALW'S Roman Mars (host of the popular architecture and design podcast "99 Percent Invisible") and John Law (co-founder of Burning Man and the Cacophony Society). -CM

Following 1995's Clueless, Hollywood made hundreds of movies exploring the teenage psyche. Most were set in the drama-rich landscape of high school, complete with jocks, cheerleaders, freaks, geeks, and countless sub cliques in between.  Narrated by cult teen star Fairuza Balk, this stylish film takes us into the soul of the teen movie, as seen through the eyes of 200 modern coming-of-age classics, exploring themes of alienation, loss of self, and scouring the often amusing myriad of emotional tempests that dominate the teenage years.   -CM

Way out West there was this fella... fella I wanna tell you about. Fella by the name of Jeff Lebowski. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. Mr. Lebowski, he called himself “The Dude.”

This year's party takes place at the newly reopened Grand Theater on Mission Street and features a costume contest, beach bonfire trampoline and volleyball action, mini bowling, some nihilists, and white russians while the Coen Brothers' classic plays all night in the screening room.

In the tradition of other snowbound shockers like The Thing and The Shining, Black Mountain Side is a calculating and claustrophobic work that casts a spell of quiet madness over its characters. A team of researchers uncovers a stone structure engraved with indecipherable archaic writing. Soon a violent illness starts to work its way through the crew. Beautifully shot against British Columbia's ominous Monashee Mountains, Szostakiwsky's sharp script is harrowing in its depiction of the emotional collapse of these increasingly isolated men of science who are determined to explain the unexplainable or die trying.

JT LeRoy was a teen prostitute, addicted to heroin and infected with HIV, when a therapist encouraged him to write his life story. Buoyed by a cadre of celebrities, he published three critically acclaimed books, including Sarah and The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things. But as his fame skyrocketed, the shocking truth emerged: JT was not what he seemed. What followed was a downfall as bewildering as it was tragic. Drawn into LeRoy’s inner circle before the truth came to light, filmmaker Marjorie Sturm was misled like many others. Through intimate interviews with many close to the tarnished figure, Sturm attempts to untangle what really happened, and in the process explores how his deception called into question not only the value of LeRoy’s writing absent authenticity, but our culture’s complicity with the author’s seductive cult of personality. ?Chris Metzler
