As election season spins up in earnest, the guys get into the spirit of the season with a new documentary. Boys State explores what happens when over a thousand bright high school boys from Texas get together to form their own two-party government: is it more Frank Capra or more Lord of the Flies? Also on the docket is the next installment in the “Summer of Darkness” film noir marathon, featuring the first major noir to be directed by a woman, the great Ida Lupino.
