    Ghost in the Shell 2 (Innocence) (2004)

    I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but if you had anything remotely nice to say about the ScarJo adaptation of Ghost in the Shell (which I refuse to call anything other than “White Savior Complex”), we probably aren’t going to be friends. Alamo Mueller is doing everyone and their mom a favor screening the sequel to the cult classic original anime film that forces us to confront the moral quandary of forcing humanoid beings to do our dirty work, then dispose of them when they become obsolete to their human makers. If that sounds familiar, it’s because the trope has been done and redone in almost every form of popular media, and it all started with a Japanese animation from 1995. – Cy White Read a full review of Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence.

    Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! (1990)

    One of my stances – there are many – is that there should be no boring movies, ever. You can say a lot about Pedro Almodóvar’s controversial romance, which features Antonio Banderas as a lovesick kidnapper freshly released from his inpatient psychiatric stay and Victoria Abril as his film star object of affection, but you can never say it’s boring. Bold colors, a thought-provoking gender dynamic, and a BDSM miasma fogging up the lens: As his follow-up to Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Almodóvar chose a real queer-ass straight movie to make. Catch this Queer Film Theory 101 screening for June, or forever wonder what might have been. – James Scott
