Filmmaker Garrone’s utterly nutty Tale of Tales intrigues
It was with great interest that we here at The Pulse welcomed the news of a new independent film theater moving into the former location of the Southside's Enzo's/Grocery Bar on West Main Street.
The promise of being able to see films that not only don't get the multiplex treatment (and to be fair to Carmike Cinemas, they have done a good job of bringing some classic films back to the big screen over in East Ridge), but films that would liklely never ever make RedBox or Netlflix, will be satisfied.
Which is why we are intrigued with this Friday's offering of Matteo Garrone's utterly nutty Tale of Tales, described as “one of the most bizarre and gorgeous films you're likely to see this year.”
From the bitter quest of the Queen of Longtrellis, to two mysterious sisters who provoke the passion of a king, to the King of Highhills obsessed with a giant Flea, these tales are inspired by the fairytales by Giambattista Basile.
Intrigued? We certainly are. Find out for yourself this Friday at 8:30 p.m. and Cine-Rama (100 W. Main St.). We can't wait to see what's next.
