The Weeknd — Echoes of Silence

The best trilogy since ‘Lord of the Rings.’ At least in the field of eerie, Canadian R&B.


Hip Hop/Rap

Matt Carney
Two leering, damaged R&B mixtapes in and I was nearly certain that provocative Toronto collective The Weeknd (the brainchild of remarkable singer Abel Tesfaye) had exhausted its scuzzy-production-and-luxurious pop-voice-singing-about-banging-groupies shtick.

Greetin’ Keaton

Four-time Academy Award nominee Diane Keaton is headed to the Civic Center.

Well, la-di-dah, la-di-dah: Oscar-winning actress Diane Keaton — star of such classics as Annie Hall, The Godfather trilogy and Reds — is coming to Oklahoma City. Next month, she’ll serve as the keynote speaker at Integris Health’s 26th annual Women’s Health Forum.

According to a press release, Keaton “will reveal how to be fearless.” (My educated-guess answer: Have millions of dollars to fall back on.)

The event is free, but reservations are required, at 951-2277, and you know this will fill up fast. Her speech is slated for 5 p.m. Sept. 9 at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker. —Rod Lott

Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory

The truth hurts.


Documentary

Rod Lott
I can't believe — just. cannot. believe. — that Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory lost the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature this past spring. And to a football movie, no less! It's another case of the jocks running ragged over the outcasts, except these outcasts were able to effect something few docs achieve: change.

Headhunters

Oslo can you go? To the depths of man’s darkest and deadliest desires, per this fun foreign crime thriller.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Compared to the continent of Europe, the rate of death by guns in America is six times higher. You wouldn’t know it based on the current wave of crime films from that half of the globe. Arguably kicked off by the worldwide success of Sweden’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, the movies generally are ballsier and bloodier and, therefore, better.

The Dark Knight Rises

Christopher Nolan directs a fitting send-off to his Batman trilogy.


Action

Phil Bacharach
Due to the twisted savagery of a young man in a Colorado movie theater, The Dark Knight Rises will forever be a footnote in American history. Hopefully, that horrific massacre will not influence perceptions of this epic conclusion to writer-director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.

Dollar for the Dead

Once upon a time on TNT.


Western

Rod Lott
Perhaps to horn in on the expected Django Unchained action, Warner Archive has dug into its vaults to give a spaghetti Western a second helping of viewers. It found a unlikely offering in Dollar for the Dead, a 1988, made-for-cable effort starring Emilio Estevez. You could look at it like a Young Guns spin-off if you wish.

The Thompsons

More ‘True Blood,’ less ‘Twilight,’ thankfully.


Horror

Rod Lott
One need not have seen 2006’s The Hamiltons before seeing its new sequel, The Thompsons. Heck, one need not even have heard of it, as I suspect many haven't.

The Collection

Gotta catch ’em all!


Horror

Rod Lott
What began as an intended Saw prequel has spawned a franchise of its own, now that 2009’s The Collector has begat The Collection. I hope in my heart of hearts that The Collection begets a third chapter — The Collective, perhaps?
