Non-multiplex flick picks this week

Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope

Super Size Me smartass Morgan Spurlock's latest documentary takes on the costumed geeks at the world's largest annual comic-book convention in San Diego. It's an easy target, no doubt, but Spurlock is too busy being fascinated by the various Yodas, Supermans, and Gandalfs walking around the place to mock them. He also talks to famous fans like Seth Rogen, Seth Green, and Kevin Smith, who come off way more tolerable than any of those celebrity assholes you see sitting courtside at basketball games. Cinematheque. At 9:50 p.m. Friday, July 6, and 7 p.m. Saturday, July 7. – Michael Gallucci


Melt Bar & Grilled's Late Shift series continues with Sam Raimi's noir thriller starring a pre-Schindler Liam Neeson. Cedar Lee Theatre. At midnight Saturday, July 7.

God Bless America

The Hunter

Willem Dafoe plays a mercenary who heads into the jungle to track down a soon-to-be-extinct tiger. That whole jungle thing didn't really work out for him in Platoon, so he'd better watch out. Cinematheque. At 7:45 p.m. Thursday, July 5.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi

Some old guy dreams about sushi. He also makes it and talks about it in this documentary. Cinematheque. At 5:15 p.m. Saturday, July 7.
