I believe the title of this entry tells you everything you need to know about the variety of films screening in Austin this week. In addition, there seem to be more free-admission films than usual this week, so if you're worried about scraping up money for your taxes, you can still see some good movies around town.
- Austin filmmaker Kyle Henry's film Room, which screened at Sundance and Cannes last year, will be playing all week long at Alamo on South Lamar. This week's Austin Chronicle includes an interview with Henry and actress Cyndi Williams.
- That quirky documentary about Texas sex-toy laws, Dildo Diaries, is getting a short run at Alamo Village, from Friday-Sunday 4/7-9. It's not only a fun movie, it's a good reminder of how insane the Texas Lege can be.
- All I know about Breakin' and Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo is that the sequel title has spawned more silly parody titles than any other film I can think of, including Highlander 2: The Quickening. If you're a fan of these movies, Alamo Downtown is showing them on Saturday 4/8 with actor Michael "Shrimp" Chambers and producer David Zito both making appearances.
