What to Watch on IFC: March 5 – 11


Posted by on

Welcome to March! Don’t know about you, but we’re heading to SXSW soon, which means we’ll be talking about nothing but movies, music, and breakfast tacos, so you know, same old, same old. Don’t we’re not leaving for another week and in the mean time we have a lot of great movies to fill the hours while March comes in like a lion.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


Guillermo Del Toro’s lush and fantastical “Pan’s Labyrinth” starts at 8 p.m. ET. This haunting fantasy of a fairytale set in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War details the strange journeys of an imaginative young girl who may be the mythical princess of an underground kingdom. If you haven’t seen it, you haven’t really been living. Watch and learn young padawan.


Sophia Coppola’s “Marie Antoinette” starts at 8. You know what that means, right? Tune in, serve up some cake and dance to Siouxsie & the Banshees in period costume. And go:


“Lucky Number Slevin” is a thriller that twists and turns its way through an underworld of crime and revenge. Josh Hartnett plays an innocent man visiting a friend in New York City becomes embroiled in a dangerous series of events after being mistaken for the very man he has come to the city to see. Tune in at 8:05 p.m. ET to find out whodunnit.


In “Hard Candy” a 14-year-old girl (Ellen Page) organizes an elaborate plot to punish a fashion photographer (Patrick Wilson) she accuses of pedophilia and earns a spot on our list of ten horror movies for women and the men who love (being scared by) them. The fun and frights starts at 8 p.m. ET.


It’s Portlandia day! We’re showing every episode of season two of Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s hit sketch comedy as we lead up to the season finale at 10 p.m. ET. Plus, stay tuned for a special sneak peek at Comedy Bang! Bang!, which is coming soon to IFC.

It’s Saturday night in “Sin City” when we air back-to-back showings of Robert Rodriguez’s and Frank Miller’s graphic novel turned film noir. Lawmen, prostitutes (Devon Aoki, Alexis Bledel), a hulking thug and other sordid characters run amok in a crime-ridden metropolis. It starts at 8 and/or 10:30 p.m. ET.


Get your American history fix the old fashioned way when we show Terrence Malick’s “The New World” followed by Daniel Day Lewis in “The Last of the Mohicans.” If your school teacher didn’t tell you this was an option, you can sue, or, you know, just watch the movies when they start at 3:30 p.m. ET.

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.
