We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Race Out and Rent (or Buy)



Fast & Furious? Miss March? Dragonball: Evolution? These are the "major" DVD releases for the week. Forgive my absence of enthusiasm. ---

That doesn't mean there's nothing great out there. You've just got to dig a little deeper, and consider stuff that may not be on the menu at the Redbox. If you're looking to laugh yourself silly and familiarize yourself with the latest work by one of America's finest and most deeply disturbed animators, try the new short films collection Bill Plympton's Dog Days. The 113-minute compilation covers Plympton's work from 2004-2008, including the "dog trilogy" (Oscar nominee Guard Dog; Guide Dog; and Hot Dog). Also on the typically whacked-out bill: Shuteye Hotel; The Fan and the Flower; and Santa: The Fascist Years.

Get just a taste of Plympton madness here. Then race out and rent (or buy).
