Three part murder

March 26-April ?: Red Riding Trilogy @ Real Art Ways, Hartford

We don't have a lot of time to run out and see every movie that comes along - we only see the really bleak, nasty ones. Oh, and Avatar - Jackie Scenic loved that shit. But usually it's a strict diet of grim indie drama or elitist indie comedy.

The Red Riding Trilogy falls into the former category. The trilogy comprises three films based on four novels by David Peace, a fictionalized account of the Yorkshire Ripper killings and their investigation. Each part has a different director and is named for a different year - 1974, 1980 and 1983. Part 1 (1974) will run March 26 through April 1, with the subsequent installments soon to follow. The trailer, which we aren't allowed to embed, promises a dismal journey - our favorite kind - which has us all excited, especially when we consider that viewing all three parts will be a major multi-week commitment. We're in.

We're a bit late to the party here in Hartford - New Haven's Criterion Cinemas is already playing 1980.
