EverOut is The Mercury's new website devoted to things to do in Portland and across the Pacific Northwest. It has all the same things you're used to seeing from Mercury EverOut, just in a new spot!
Since Governor Kate Brown has announced new temporary restrictions for five Oregon counties (including Multnomah County), not to mention the rainy forecast ostensibly in store for the rest of the season, we recommend hunkering down for some good old-fashioned movie-watching this weekend. See our picks below, from Branded to Kill (with live commentary from Jim Jarmusch) to the Portland protest-centered documentary Tipping Point. We've also included some options for private and limited-capacity screenings, but with COVID cases on a serious incline, please be extra cautious (wear a mask, keep your distance from others, stay home if you're feeling sick) if you do go that route.
LOCALLY STREAMING: NEW & NOTEWORTHY
Branded to Kill
Seijun Suzuki's stylized and nihilistic 1967 film featuring much bizarreness and mind-bending musical numbers. It's been cited as a major inspiration for directors like John Woo, Chan-wook Park, and Quentin Tarantino, and Jim Jarmusch (who will provide live commentary during this screening).
