“The Interview” Scores Manhattan: Lincoln Center Film Society Schedules Two Shows a Day


I really like Kent Jones, but really: the Film Society of Lincoln Center has just announced they will be the home for “The Interview.” They’re going to show it once in the morning at 10:45am and again at night 11:30pm. Do they think this is Kurosawa? Or a film from a suppressed regime? This is Seth Rogen. There are dick jokes. And ‘bro’ jokes. And toilet humor galore. And yes, the dictator of North Korea is assassinated while Katy Perry’s “Firework” is playing. Well, it’s good money for Lincoln Center. Go for it, kids!
