Welcome to August where the men are sweaty, the women are glistening, and everyone has stockpiles of industrial grade antiperspirant. Leaving the safety of the air conditioning is a surefire way to get a nose full of olfactory awfulness and is not recommended. Fear not, IFC is here for you. Not only do we have a great line up of independent films and awesome original programming to keep you company on the couch, but each night this week around 8 p.m. ET we are showing a sneak peek of “Whisker Wars.”
Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:
If you loved the dark world of “Black Swan,” be sure to check out director Darren Aronofsky’s equally twisted earlier work, “Requiem for a Dream.” It airs tonight at 10:45 p.m. ET.
In case you missed it, watch the infamous colonic commercial starring Richard Marx when an encore showing of “Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings” airs at 7 p.m. ET. Then, catch the season finale of “Young, Broke & Beautiful” at 7:30 p.m. ET when Broke- Ass Stuart hits Detroit.
The true story behind the murders that many crime scholars believe to be the most perplexing series of unsolved crimes in modern history comes to life on the screen in David Fincher’s “Zodiac”. It airs at 8 p.m. ET.
Bearding is a sport and at 11 p.m. ET, “Whisker Wars” will prove it. The Thom Beers’ production is the ultimate facial hair face off and offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of competitive facial hair growing.
Spend Saturday in suburbia when Ang Lee’s searing portrait of marriage and family, “The Ice Storm,” airs at 3:30 p.m. ET. Set on Thanksgiving weekend of 1973, “The Ice Storm” looks into the lives of a wealthy Connecticut family who are calm and civil on the outside, but whose lives are quietly falling into chaos.
It’s a “Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings” marathon! Beginning at 1 p.m. ET/12 CT, catch all the ads that Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal made for local businesses for this season of their show, including this one:
