See this film series: "Schlock Around the Clock" at the Brattle

As the distinctions between good and bad movies blurs, the Brattle Theatre's Schlock Around the Clock series might be the last arbiter of quality. But are they serious about including Team America: World Police (2004; midnight) as schlock? Trey Parker and Matt Stone's obscene, brutal, and hilarious parody of action films and the world at large looms like auteur genius over the so-called respectable crap on the screen these days. As for Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (Part IV) (1984; 8 pm) and its sequel Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI (1986; 10 pm), these are genuine schlock that we can embrace with unapologetic glee, especially given the  date.

Friday, April 13 @ the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge| $9.75; $7.75 students; $6.75 seniors; festival pass $65; $50 students, seniors |
