Now Playing: X marks the spot for SHE’S SO LOVELY this Valentine’s Day
This Valentine’s week, celebrate early with John and Nick Cassavetes’ dark and unconventional take on love tonight, or late with Saturday’s sexy romp through Sydney’s red light district in X. Or if you’re not into the whole Hallmark holiday thing at all, may we suggest Tommy Lee Jones in a modern western instead? Or a nice Stephen King film? In all cases, we’ve got you covered.
Every week, watch a different award winning film from festivals around the globe. A series of contemporary hits and timeless masterpieces.
Fans of John Cassavetes won’t want to miss what’s probably the last new material we’ll ever have from the late writer and director. Released eight years after his death and directed by his son Nick, SHE’S SO LOVELY stars Robin Wright Penn, Sean Penn and John Travolta as something of a bizarre and violent love triangle.
SHE’S SO LOVELY, this week on OFFICIAL SELECTION, Wednesday at 8P

The Creed family thought they found their dream home in a nice, quiet community – oh, except for the weird pet cemetery in the back that brings animals back to life. Trouble is, when they do come back, they’re not quite the same. What happens if you bury a human there? Nobody’s ever tried it, but when the Creed’s son dies, somebody just might get more than they bargained for.

ROBERT REDFORD PRESENTS
An insightful introduction into a diverse array of thought provoking films brought to you by the man who made it all possible… Mr. Robert Redford presents…
A long, personal journey of redemption based on true events. Tommy Lee Jones stars as Sheriff Pete Perkins, a Texas lawman who suspects that US border patrolman Mike Norton may have shot and killed a Mexican cowboy named Melquiades Estrada, then buried him to hide the evidence. Perkins forces Norton to ride with him to re-bury the body in Estrada’s home town in Mexico, a journey more difficult than either of them had predicted.
THE THREE BURIALS OF MELQUIADES ESTRADA, this week on ROBERT REDFORD PRESENTS, Saturday at 8P
A night of uncut, uncensored, boundary-pushing fare sure to earn its TV-MA.
A high class call girl needs to make it through one more night on the job before calling it quits, while her young protege needs to make it through her first. If cop movies have taught us anything, it’s that the retiring veteran and rookie combination means all hell’s about to break loose. This film’s got action galore, of all kinds. We can promise you one thing: you won’t be bored.
