THIS MARCH, ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE AND BIRTH.MOVIES.DEATH. ARE ON THE CASE

Crime doesn’t pay… unless you’re a movie studio, in which case movies about crime are perennially profitable! Especially when they’re good, and it turns out that some of the best movies ever made happen to be about crime and criminals. This month we’re turning our attention to some of our favorite crime movies, including MEMENTO, DIRTY HARRY and CLUE. We also have an interview with the director of a film that I believe will soon be seen as a new crime classic, CHEAP THRILLS. But we’re not just getting down into the dirty side of life; this issue of BIRTH.MOVIES.DEATH. also contains an impassioned defense of BRING IT ON. If loving that cheerleading movie is a crime, send us all to the slammer.

By the way, we’re also very excited this month about Wes Anderson’s new film, THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL. We haven’t seen it yet, but there are certain filmmakers who compel you to buy a ticket opening night no matter what, and Wes is one of those. How do you celebrate a new film in the micro-genre of ‘hotel movies?’ Maybe a cross-country road trip visiting some of the best and most interesting hotels seen on screen, from SOME LIKE IT HOT to GHOSTBUSTERS to FARGO.

I feel like in honor of CLUE this intro should have four endings, but the limits of print allow only one. Maybe we’ll have more at the site -- visit us here to find out.
