“Could very well be the punchiest piece of concept art to ever hit the silver screen, a shock-dose of German existential cinema you can ride.” - Ed Gonzalez, Slant
Friday, April 7 & Saturday, April 8 | If you watch RUN LOLA RUN and you aren’t having fun (or seriously considering dying your hair electric red), you’re doing it wrong. Tom Tykwer - who later went on to collaborate with the Wachowskis on CLOUD ATLAS - delivers a contagious techno punk beat and a hero to root for. When small-time criminal Manni fumbles the ball on a payment delivery to his boss, he is given twenty minutes to come up with the money. When he calls his girlfriend Lola, she quite literally springs into action, sprinting through the streets of Berlin to help Mannie before he - or his boss - do something dangerous. Tykwer crafts a stylized omnibus, resetting the clock at every “choose your own adventure” solution that Lola selects, illustrating how even the smallest decision can lead to the most devastating consequences. Kinetic, clever, and best on the big screen, RUN LOLA RUN takes off and doesn’t stop until the credits roll.

All In A Day's Work: There isn’t much we can collectively count on, but we do know that tonight the sun will set, tomorrow it will rise, and no matter how you slice it, there are twenty four hours in a day. In All in a Day’s Work, a soul is altered from one minute to the next, life hinges on the ticking of the clock, and the passage of time takes on an entirely new significance for the audience.
