Movie spotlight: Flotilla of arrivals
- March 15, 2013 - 3:54 PM
A flotilla of films arrive in port Friday without press previews. Boy band Mindless Behavior move up from opening for Justin Bieber and Janet Jackson to star in their own concert film. Whether the fab four (Princeton, Prodigy, Ray Ray and Roc Royal) will be trivia answers or superstars next year is anyone’s guess. But this week they’re up on the big screen in wide release with “Mindless Behavior: All Around the World” (G). At Minneapolis’ St. Anthony Main theater, there’s a trio of rarely seen Italian classics. Playing in rotation are Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1954 medley of international murder “The Vanquished,” Francesco Rosi’s 1970 battlefield drama “Many Wars Ago,” and Luchino Visconti’s 1974 “Conversation Piece,” starring Burt Lancaster as a lonely art professor adapting to decadent new neighbors, all in subtitled Italian. For the schedule and tickets, visit www.mspfilmsociety.org. And on the home front, there’s “Profile of a Killer” (unrated), a locally shot indie about the hunt for a serial murderer (Regal Brooklyn Center 20).
