specialscreenings After Life JJJJJ fAntAsy DrAmA rAteD nr In Brief: A thoroughly fascinating movie about the bureaucratic process of what happens after we die. The film’s basic idea of the dead having to choose one single memory to take with them into eternity is conceptually fanciful and rather (deliberately) mundane in execution. This latter aspect causes part of the movie to become a little pokey, but the overall experience of the film is unique. Classic World Cinema by Courtyard Gallery will present After Life at 8 p.m. Friday, July 27 at Phil Mechanic Studios, 109 Roberts St., River Arts District, upstairs in the Railroad Library).

the BLAck Pit of Dr. m (misterios De ULtrAtUmBA) JJJJ horror rAteD nr In Brief: An atmospheric — and typically over-the-top — little chiller from Mexico about the director of an insane asylum and his attempts to go beyond the grave. Made by the major Mexican horror director of the era, Fernando Méndez, the film is much stronger on creepy images than it is on logic. The Thursday Horror Picture Show will screen The Black Pit of Dr. M. Thursday, July 26 at 8 p.m. in the Cinema Lounge of The Carolina Asheville and will be hosted by Xpress movie critics Ken Hanke and Justin Souther.

LAw of Desire JJJJJ comeDy-DrAmA-thriLLer rAteD nc-17 In Brief: A flamboyant gay filmmaker — trying to get over a lost love — takes up with a dangerously possessive and unstable young man, who will do anything to keep his hold on the filmmaker. Pedro Almodovar’s first U.S. hit is an unabashedly personal, deeply disturbing, but sometimes very funny work that holds back no excess — which is how it got that NC-17 rating. The Asheville Film Society will screen Law of Desire Tuesday, July 31 at 8 p.m. in the Cinema Lounge of The Carolina Asheville and will be hosted by Xpress movie critics Ken Hanke and Justin Souther.
