From Xavier Dolan to Matteo Garrone, Here’s What You Should Be Seeing in the City This Weekend

David Lynch once said, "In film, life-and-death struggles make you sit up, lean forward a little bit. They amplify things happening, in smaller ways, in all of us. These things show up in relationships. They show up in struggles and bring them to a critical point."  And that’s the joy with seeing a movie, we’re allowed to fall into another world that both allows us to escape but also informs our own hidden desires.  And this week, if you’re looking for an emotional or psychological trip into the world of another, there are plenty of great movies to dive into around the city. From Xavier Dolan’s beautiful and brutal debut feature J’ai tué ma mère (I Killed My Mother) to Andrzej Zulawski’s bone-chilling Possession, here’s what you should be seeing around the city this weekend
