Here's the e-mail I sent to the Nickelodeon, the art theatre of the Columbia Film Society, and the only local outlet for foreign and independent cinema:
Heading: Why Aren't You Showing "The Aristocrats"?
The one movie everyone is talking about -- the one great cause celebre of the season, the one movie I was totally expecting the Nickelodeon to screen because no one else will ... and what do I get instead? The usual pile of feel-good international piffle.
I wish sometimes the screening committee would stopped being so damned multi-cultural and start showing movies that are significant, and not merely foreign.
