The Next Best Thing to Actually Getting Laid on Valentine's Day
Passion, schmassion. Cinefamily's idea of romance on Valentine's Day is hosting the "100 Most Outrageous Fucks!," which just may be as disturbing as last October's Halloween show, "100 Most Outrageous Kills." But don't expect any Joe Eszterhastype sleaze here. Mostly forgoing the usual Hollywood fare, head cinefile Hadrian Belove and the rest of the movie house's programmers will screen and dissect bizarre, over-the-top love scenes from more obscure flicks, no doubt involving a lot of symbolism and foreign dialogue. Though they're tight-lipped about the list of movies to be screened, you may look forward to watching Jeremy Irons and Juliette Binoche going at it like high school wrestlers in 1992's Damage, the late, great Louis Malle's penultimate film, about a British politician who has an affair with his son's fiance. And may we suggest the South Park creators' Team America: You just can't top scatological sex between two puppets. Cinefamily, 611 N. Fairfax Ave., Hlywd.; Tues., Feb. 14, 10:30 p.m.; $12. (323) 655-2510.
