Burying the Ex

Directed by Joe Dante
With Anton Yelchin, Ashley Greene, Alexandra Daddario
2014, 89min, DCP

 

A horror movie nerd (Yelchin) finds himself living one out when his controlling, recently deceased ex-girlfriend (Greene) returns from the grave, hell-bent on holding him to his promise of undying love. Dante’s ode to old-school B horror—packed with knowing cinephile nods to everything from Val Lewton movies to vintage fan magazines—deftly balances gags and gross-outs for a satisfyingly satirical zom-com.

 
Modern Romance

Directed by Albert Brooks
With Albert Brooks, Kathryn Harrold, Bruno Kirby
1981, 93min, 35mm

 

Albert Brooks perfected his deadpan, psychologically acute comedic style in this tragicomic dissection of love and heartbreak. He gives an unflinching performance as a commitment-phobic film editor who, after breaking up with his girlfriend (Harrold), descends into a spiral of self-doubt and jealousy. In addition to Dante, the film had another high-profile admirer in none other than Stanley Kubrick.

“Neurosis as a fine art: of all the films of Albert Brooks, this is my favorite. Albert plays an obsessive, insecure film editor who can’t decide whether to break up with perplexing girlfriend Kathryn Harrold or stay together, so he does both, constantly. Full of cringe worthy, perfectly observed laugh-out-loud moments. Has great support from Bruno Kirby, James L. Brooks, George Kennedy, and... Meadowlark Lemon.” —Joe Dante
