What to watch this week on IFC:


Get your tongue pierced and shoulder tap for some beer to get you in the spirit of “Thirteen,” Catherine Hardwicke’s tale of teen rebellion and parental nightmares airs at 8 p.m. ET.


If you are a fan of “Black Swan” you must see director Darren Aronofsky’s “Requiem for a Dream” at 10 p.m. ET. The dark, twisted film stars Jared Leto, Marlon Wayans, and Jennifer Connelly as impoverished heroin addicts living in Coney Island. It goes down hill from there.


Get over Hump Day with a double helping of horror. We’re showing “Alien” — one of the scariest movies ever — back-to-back with “Evil Dead 2.” The fun and frights start at 8 p.m. ET


Stay up late to watch Bernardo Bertolucci’s “The Dreamers,” which airs at 1 a.m. ET. Adapted from the novel “The Holy Innocents: A Romance” by Gilbert Adair, the highly-charged film follows American student Matthew (Michael Pitt) on an erotic journey of discovery after he meets twins Isabelle (Eva Green) and her twin brother, Theo (Louis Garrel).


The Whitest Kids U’Know bring you another chapter in their epic film “The Civil War on Drugs” tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET. Buy some Jizzle, while you’re watching.


Start your day with the Breakfast of Champions: Two hour-long scoops of The Three Stooges beginning at 10 a.m. ET. Suck it, Wheaties!


Before his new film “Tree of Life” comes out, watch director Terrence Malick’s “The New World” at 5 p.m. ET. Malick’s story opens at the dawn of the 17th century, just prior to the colonization of the United States — when the North American population consisted of an interconnected series of native tribes. In April 1607, three maritime vessels approach the unfamiliar continent, with 103 sailors on board, including John Smith (Colin Farrell). Pocahantas awaits.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
