What kind of world did Connie live in? It’s still out there, and I’m very pleased that Richard Brody posted where I always knew it belonged. Freaky doesn’t reach for any arch commentary beyond the suggestion that, hey, Freaky Friday the 13th is a pretty funny idea. I can’t honestly tell you more than that about it.

Stars: | Zappa’s emotional remove is a running theme throughout the documentary. Drama, Romance, War. Leon Niemczyk, 180 min 106 min Henryk Borowski, 110 min They also feature a starry lineup of performers: Lisa Davina Phillip as a widowed mail carrier pursuing the aged Jangle with lustful riffs and a trio of backup dancers; the ever-energized Key as a charlatan salesman making a high-spirited musical pitch to prospective buyers (in a tribute to The Wiz, Gustafson and his employers are all clad in emerald green); and a vocally luminous Anika Noni Rose as Journey’s mother, who vows to make peace with her own father in “Make It Work,” a churning choral anthem and the film’s best song, written by John Legend. Tabloid life of a physicist; his work, his love life and his quest for the meaning beyond. $0.12M, 104 min They unite to hunt down the killer, who’s taken Millie’s body and turned her into a seductress who seems to be aiming to kill the school’s jocks—many of whom, the film suggests, probably deserve it anyway.
