(2002) dir Steven Shainberg w/Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Spader, Jeremy Davies [111 min; 35mm]
In this iconic indie film, Maggie Gyllenhaal stars as a secretary who finds herself attracted to her demanding new boss and is willing to do literally anything to secure his love for her. Way before 50 Shades of Grey, the sexy, playful, and darkly funny SECRETARY pushed the bounds of what could be considered romantic on screen.

It’s that time of the year again when people start buying candy and jewelry and putting up pictures of cherubs everywhere. As much as we love celebrating love, we feel that sometimes there’s too narrow a definition applied around Valentine’s Day. Here with the antidote is our latest REEL WEIRD BRATTLE late night series. From David Cronenberg’s transgressive masterpiece CRASH to the bizarre obsessions of THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES to the alternative affections of SECRETARY, we present a series of weird and wonderful films that are all, no matter how strangely, driven by passion.
