In the early days of Alamo, I was the only programmer and the theater programming was a direct reflection of my personal tastes. As we’ve grown, we’ve added other voices with diverse perspectives and the programming has definitely matured. But my own personal recommendations are driven by my love of the strange, the unexpected, the delightfully weird. My favorite feeling in the world, and really the reason I got into this business in the first place, is when you walk out of a cinema with goosebumps, having seen something fresh, original and often out-of-this world.
Below is a list of films that gave me goosebumps over the years: the films of Bong Joon Ho; the transcendent documentary we distributed at Drafthouse Films, The Act of Killing and many others. Enjoy!
