8:00 p.m., C3 Theater
For nearly forty years, Wolfgang Beltracchi conned the international art world, selling forged paintings by 20th-century masters and creating the biggest art scandal of our time with the sale of fourteen forgeries for $45,000,000. This film tells the story of his success and his eventual arrest and conviction. It begs the question, how are virtues and vices defined in the art industry?

Late Night Talk: Saints, Sinners, and the In-Between

Rocky IV (1985)

At the January Late Night, we asked what guilty-pleasure movie you would like to see for our "Virtues and Vices" theme this month. The votes have been tallied and the people have spoken. In the wake of Apollo Creed’s untimely death in the ring, Rocky Balboa comes out of retirement for a revenge match against the superhuman Russian champ, Ivan Drago. Watch the Italian Stallion take on his formidable opponent and Communism itself in this Cold War epic—complete with robots and not one but two training montages. Bask in the shame.
