THURSDAY, 9.20: The 92nd Street Y presents an essential reading: Edwidge Danticat and Zakes Mda. $10 tickets for under-35s are a true innovation and it’s great to see them expanding their audience. Thursday’s a perfect day to discover the Y if you’ve never been. Downtown, Levi Asher and his hooligan beatnik chums take over the Bowery Poetry Club. Can you dig that Happy Hour, man? I’m already deciding what to wear. 6:30pm, $6.
SATURDAY, 9.22: I usually consider it worth a trip to the Low Countries to view artistic masterworks, but in this case, the Upper East Side is much more convenient as the Met presents “The Age of Rembrandt.”
SUNDAY, 9.23: At Anthology Film Archives, “Loosely adapted from DON QUIXOTE and largely inspired by Robert Bresson’s LANCELOT DU LAC and Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s BLISSFULLY YOURS, QUIXOTIC is a captivating celebration of landscape, a wry rumination on the theme of idealism and a daring exercise in cinematic minimalism. In Albert Serra’s version of Cervantes’ chivalrous comedy, the elderly knight and his companion Sancho pass the time bathing, bickering and bumming aroundÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Yet Serra punctuates the proceedings with sublime moments of grace, wonder and tenderness.” Ã¢â‚¬â€œJason Anderson, EYE WEEKLY” 2006, 110 minutes, 35mm. In Catalan with English subtitles. U.S. Theatrical Premiere Run!
