Our five-day mashed potato binge is on the horizon—how to pass the time? How about by watching acclaimed indie films not yet picked up for distribution—that’s how cutting edge we are—at MoMA, part of a series called “Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You!” Our personal favorite, Afterschool, advertises itself as “a haunting portrait of a student at an elite New England prep school who, preoccupied with surfing the Internet for pornographic and violent imagery, inadvertently videotapes the fatal drug overdose of the school’s popular ‘It’ girls.” Oh, boy.
