Well, don’t worry. The New Beverly has a film festival that’s right up your alley. Curated by Brick director Riann Johnson, the “Festival of Fakery” begins tonight with a double feature of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) and Johnson’s own upcoming film The Brothers Bloom.
Other films being screened include: a double feature of David Mamet’s House of Games (1987) and The Spanish Prisoner (1997); a double bill of The Sting (1973) and The Man Who Would Be King (1975); a double dose of Orson Welles’ F for Fake (1974) with Fellini’s 8 1/2 (1963); and a double whammy of Preston Sturges’ The Lady Eve (1941) and Terry Giliam’s The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1988).
Now get back to pretending to do whatever you were pretending to be doing.
