What to watch on IFC: “Domino” tonight at 10:15 p.m. ET

Director Tony Scott (best known for “Top Gun” and “True Romance”) always had a knack for the sensational and in “Domino” he cranks it all the way up. The fractured, feverish visual style he mastered in 2004′s “Man on Fire” breathes a frenetic energy into the true-crime tale of Domino Harvey, played by Keira Knightley. Domino was one of those girls who had it all and then threw it away to become a bounty hunter. Okay, so there aren’t that many girls like that, but that’s why they made a movie out of her life and not your boring one. Domino was the daughter of actor Laurence Harvey and model model Pauline Stone, who later got married to Hard Rock Cafe co-founder Peter Morton and thus really rich. Domino didn’t really have to work, but she dabbled as a Ford model until she realized her true calling: Being a bounty hunter.

In the movie version, Domino becomes an even crazier collage than her real life with Richard Kelly (“Donnie Darko”) drafting the screenplay. In the pulp version of her life, Domino teams up with her seedy yet charismatic colleagues, Ed Moseby (Mickey Rourke) and Choco (Edgar Ramirez), and soon became entangled in a botched robbery planned by their bail bondsman employer, Claremont Williams III (Delroy Lindo). It’s a mess made een more unsightly and more difficult to clean up because they have a reality TV crew watching their every move. Making the movie even more fun, the reality TV crew is played by two “Beverly Hills 90210″ alums Ian Ziering (a.k.a Steve) and Brian Austin Green (David Silver). The real Domino Harvey died at the age of 35 from an accidental drug overdose just a few months before the film’s release

Watch the trailer and you’ll know that you want to tune in tonight at 10:15 p.m. ET. Heck, you’ll want to tune in at 8p.m. ET when we show John Carpenter’s “Escape From L.A.” starring Kurt Russell:

Final Countdown

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

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.
