I don’t know about you, but I love messed-up movies. Descriptions like “perverse” and “psycho-noir” will draw me into a theater faster than a teenage girl will for a movie about vampires or pirates. And lucky me, this coming Tuesday, January 11th at 7pm, the Belcourt and Arthouse Films are presenting a free screening of Kalamity, a film directed by James Hausler.
This film is about a guy named Billy who is heartbroken over his ex-girlfriend. He then decides to go home to seek the advice and comfort of his childhood friends, only to discover that his best friend from back home, Stanley, has lost his nut. He’s “unstable, mysterious, and withdrawn from those around him” and the farther Billy digs into his friend’s world things get even more terrifying.
Like I said, this is a free screening, but you’re going to need a voucher to get in. All you have to do is go to the Belcourt’s box office to get one, but the fine folks who are putting on the film will be hanging around the streets handing them out, and lots will be left in local stores across Nashville, so keep your eyes out.
