TGIF betches! I set off for the magical land of queso and breakfast tacos tonight-- yep! Going to Austin for SXSW. But not without a little Friday In Theaters to set you off right. It just wouldn't be right to depart without a mild rant about the "John Carter" marketing campaign! Yes, this weekend the questionable Civil War/Sci-Fi "John Carter" muscles its way into theaters, as well as Elizabeth Olsen spooky movie "Silent House," and funny attractive people with problems rom-com "Friends with Kids."

The documentary “The Ballad Of Genesis & Lady Jaye” hits theaters in New York in limited release this weekend. It’s an utterly fascinating and bizarre (sometimes queasy) look at identity and pandrogny (review later this week) that happens to center around seminal experimental music figure Genesis P-Orridge, of atonal, industrial noisemakers Throbbing Gristle, who went on to form the still-experimental, but more palatable Psychic TV.

Love can devour, enrapture, overtake and consume you, and while those are usually sentiments left to emotional descriptions of a relationship, the forthcoming documentary "The Ballad Of Genesis And Lady Jaye" finds the passion between a couple going to bizarre and oddly touching physical realms.
