A hilarious – and hilariously creepy – treat for film-lovers, director Adam Rifkin’s Director’s Cut comes to The Frida May 10 – 17!

Written by Rifkin and acclaimed comedian/magician Penn Jillette, Director’s Cut is an insane cinematic sleight of hand trick that gets weirder and more hilarious as it goes on, and as the audience realizes what’s happening with the movie itself. A brilliant ‘meta movie’ conceived by and starring Jillette, Director’s Cut is a mind bending, genre-defying movie-within-a-movie mash-up that’s part narrative thriller, part docu-mental-case. Anchored by a fantastic lead performance by Missi Pyle (Galaxy Quest, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Director’s Cut is an indie masterpiece that is full of surprises, and one of those films that is best experienced the least you know about it…

“An extraordinarily clever – yet wickedly accessible – exercise in runaway metafiction … – Kim Newman, Screen International

“A hilarious mix of production observation, movie-making incompetence, and unhinged self-implication into an art that always needs outsider input to renew itself.” – Anton Bitel, Sight and Sound
