You’ve got one chance yet, Saturday at 12:30 PM, to see the Gene Siskel Film Center’s program of rare shorts from the L.A. Rebellion, the black filmmaking movement that emerged from UCLA in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. The program kicks off a series of 12 retrospective screenings through June; check out our long review here. We also have recommended reviews of From Up on Poppy Hill, the latest animation from Japan’s Studio Ghibli; Gimme the Loot, an indie comedy about two taggers hoping to spraypaint the giant apple at Citi Field; Reality, the latest from Gomorrah director Matteo Garrone; and Warrendale, a 1967 cinema verite documentary about emotionally disturbed children.
