Unless you have kids or can never get enough of the Rocky Horror Picture Show (playing at Central Cinema), there's not a whole lot going on this weekend, film-wise.

You could spend it going to the multiplex to catch likely Oscar noms, but I'd recommend you get yourself to Scarecrow or On 15th Video and check out Fishing With John.

I became aware of this screen gem only last weekend, but I'm ready to spend the rest of my life watching it.  Basically, Jim Jarmusch regular John Lurie goes fishing in exotic locales with exotic co-stars in delightfully bizarre half-hour episodes. Ice fishing with Willem Dafoe and hunting for giant squid with Dennis Hopper?  Yes please.
