"This first, magnificent, outpouring of the sporadic genius of cinema’s equivalent to JD Salinger, Terrence Malick, still seems terrifically modern…. BADLANDS is as psychologically precise as it is splendidly visually observant. But it also exudes a timeless, mythical and tragic quality which is all the more remarkable for the languorous ease with which its story unfolds.” —Wally Hammond, #TimeOut

It would be a bracing, haunting work even if it weren’t so timely.” — #BenKenigsberg @nytimes

Just announced — and on sale! Queer Qlassics* in July! (Tickets at link in bio, or

Our inaugural Queer Qlassics series, long ago in 2019, focused on primary-source documents of the history of the LGBTQ community. For this, our second installment, we have focused on transformational narratives — the process of coming to know oneself, the resolve to live on one’s own terms in a hostile environment, taking the pressures of the world and emerging a diamond, and the ways that something once rejected can become something treasured (and vice versa).
