Mon.-Thur. Oct. 20-23: Memphis (dir. Tim Sutton - 2014 - 82m)
A strange singer with god given talent drifts through the mythic city of Memphis under its canopy of ancient oak trees, shattered windows, and burning spirituality. Surrounded by lovers, legends, hustlers, preachers, and a wolfpack of kids, the unstable performer avoids the recording studio and is driven to learn his own form of self-discovery. Shown in fragments, his journey drags him from love and happiness right to the edge of another dimension. Featuring an explosive performance and score from singular recording artist-cum-wizard (and former ABQ local) Willis Earl Beal, MEMPHIS is a film steeped in folklore, music, surrealism, and the abstract search for glory. Salon article on why movies like this matter.
