Searching for Sugar Man

A true story that's truly sweet.


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
This is a golden age of documentaries, and I don’t mean the propagandistic variety via Michael Moore or 2016: Obama’s America. Given the pervasive timidity and lack of imagination in Hollywood today, film buffs are well advised to take stock of documentaries, where the most gripping stories are being told.

‘Plan’ on it

RiffTrax offers a second chance to see them eviscerate a shlock sci-fi classic.

Plan one: Any self-respecting fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 should go see the RiffTrax gang do its thing tomorrow night to Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. Not for nothing has the 1959 sci-fi turkey starring Bela Lugosi and Bela Lugosi’s chiropractor been dubbed the “worst movie ever made.”

The 7:30 p.m. Thursday showing isn’t live, but it was four years ago, and if you didn’t see it then, trust me: It was hilarious.

Or don’t trust me and see it yourself. That’s what I’m urging you to do, anyway, and you may do so at either AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial, or Tinseltown USA, 6001 N. Martin Luther King.

Best in Show

Award-worthy comedy struts onto Blu-ray.


Comedy

Rod Lott
My favorite of Christopher Guest's mockumentaries is easily 2000’s Best in Show. While I think it helps to be a theater nerd to appreciate 1996’s Waiting for Guffman in full or a folk nut to opt for 2003’s A Mighty Wind, “must love dogs” is no requirement here. Love man’s best friend or hate him, the humor in Best in Show is less inside-baseball than its brothers.
