With only one new indie release limping into the area this weekend, look to the air for some highly personal — and extremely daring — filmmaking.

  • Hell’s Angels.‘ From the legendary Howard Hughes comes a legendarily expensive war picture that takes place most notably in the air, with real people risking life and limb. With Jean Harlow. This special, one-time only presentation of a 35mm, fully-restored print will be followed by a performance by Matt Tolentino and the Singapore Slingers (7 piece variant).  Highly recommended. (The Texas Theatre)
  • Kill Your Darlings.’ A wan drama about the writers who would become the leaders of the Beat Generation a decade later. With Daniel Radcliffe, Dane DeHaan, Michael C. Hall, Ben Foster, Elizabeth Olsen, Jack Huston. Reviewed here. Not recommended. (Angelika Dallas, Angelika Plano)

Opening in wide release across the Metroplex:

  • The Best Man Holiday.’ A sequel to 1999’s ‘The Best Man.’ College friends reunite; expect sexy talk, laughter, tears, and so forth.  Help yourself. With Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan, Morris Chesnut, and Harold Perrineau; written and directed by Malcolm Lee. Not previewed
