There's plenty else going on this week: Saturday noon brings the 2013 installment of the Massacre, the popular 24-hour horror marathon, at the swell Patio Theater. And we've got new reviews of: A.C.O.D., a romantic comedy about adult children of divorce, starring Adam Scott, Jane Lynch, and Catherine O'Hara; Captain Phillips, with Tom Hanks as the real-life captain of the Maersk Alabama, taken by Somali pirates in April 2009; Ghost Anthology: A History of Argentine Experimental Film, which surveys the last 40 years of the country's avant-garde; The Summit, a documentary about mountain climbers overtaken by tragedy; We Are What We Are, a U.S. remake of the 2010 Mexican feature about a family of cannibals; and When Comedy Went to School, which revisits the heyday of the Catskills as a mecca for comedians.
