“THE ULTIMATE ACHIEVEMENT IN TAE KWON DO ANTI-SANITY!
The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song “Against the Ninja,” Mark (Taekwondo master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world’s smelliest underbelly. It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the “stupid cocaine”…and the entire MIAMI CONNECTION!!!” Playing Friday thru Thursday in Austin and Friday and Saturday in Seattle. Click here for The Alamo, and click here for The Grand Illusion.

“The World’s Greatest Sinner is a 1962 mega-underground film written, directed and starring the cult legend Timothy Carey. The self-financed film tells the story of an average man, Clarence Hilliard, who quits his day job as an insurance salesman and forms a rock band. Finding that he can whip crowds into a frenzy with his wildly unhinged rockabilly performances, Clarence takes advantage of the attention by turning his fan base into a political party and eventually a religious cult based on the premise that every man is a god. Ironically, Clarence finances the cult by seducing elderly widows out of their life savings . The more powerful Clarence becomes, the more ego-maniacal and detached from reality he grows, eventually insisting upon being called God with a capital “G” and having his followers worship him as such. Soon he personally challenges the God of the Bible to prove that Clarence himself is not the true Almighty. God obliges him. The World’s Greatest Sinner has never had an official release, though it has aired on the Turner Classic Movies basic cable channel. Martin Scorsese is one of the film’s supporters, and has selected it in the past as one of his favorite rock and roll films of all time. The film features a score composed by a young pre-Mothers of Invention Frank Zappa. This film established Carey as an important figure in independent film. Q&A with Timothy’s son Romeo Carey and The Timothy Carey Experience blogger Marisa Young following the 35mm film!” FRIDAY NIGHT ONLY! Click here for more.
