The Connection is a 1961 feature film by the noted American experimental filmmaker Shirley Clarke. The film was Clarke’s first feature; she had made several short films over the previous decade. Eight drug addicts are waiting for their connection in a New York apartment belonging to Leach. Jim Dunn, a budding filmmaker, has agreed to pay for the fix if the addicts will allow him to film the connection scene. After the men get their shots, they talk Dunn into trying heroin in order to understand the subject “first hand.” He becomes ill and while sleeping, Leach takes an overdose that puts him into a coma. Dunn recovers, with the aid of the connection, and writes off the film as a failure. (7:30PM)

David Cronenberg's "Cosmopolis" is a welcome return to style, complemented with fine performances from an ensemble class. Unfortunately, the film is nowhere near as compelling as its seemingly heady themes and examinations would suggest.

Initially armed with the tremendous title Rabbit Horror 3D (tell me you wouldn't run out to see that immediately), this surreal, fantasy/horror blends elements from a number of children's films such as Alice in Wonderland and The Little Mermaid, but its final product is decidedly NOT for children...
