The East

For an indie thriller with as much intelligence as intrigue, just head to ‘The East.’ No compass needed.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Across her three films as an actress/writer/producer (2011’s Another Earth, 2012’s Sound of My Voice and now The East), Brit Marling has explored the subjects of cults, symbols, duplicates, identity and family. Remarkably, despite these recurring themes and a tonal similarity, each experience seems anew.

Olympus Has Fallen

And it can't get up!


Action

Rod Lott
As Aaron Eckhart grows angry and Morgan Freeman pulls strings from the sidelines, a possibly crazy but altogether decent man dishes out some superheroic justice to save the city. The result is an excellent movie, arguably the best of the year.

Pride 2014 Block Party, Arts Festival and Parade


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

The last year has been one for the LGBTQ record books: Our state’s ban on same-sex marriage was deemed unconstitutional (pending appeal), three same-sex couples were issued licenses through the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes in November and The Boom’s Gospel Brunch still hasn’t been shut down by local officials. So get your tushes out to OKC Pride’s 2014 events, beginning with a Block Party 7 p.m. Friday and concluding with the 2014 Pride Parade 6 p.m. Sunday. It all goes down on, er, at the NW 39th Street Enclave around 39th Street and Pennsylvania Ave. Admission is free. Visit okcpride.org.
