Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Gooooooood morning, Vietnam. Wherever you are, it will be a good evening, because we’re showing “Apocalypse Now” at 8/7c. Martin Sheen stars in Francis Ford Coppola’s telling of Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness.” Marlon Brando makes a memorable appearance as renegade colonel Kurtz. If you haven’t seen it yet, what’s wrong with you? Don’t you like nice things?

Tuesday

Does it ever feel like your life is a television show? Well for one man it turns out to be true. Jim Carrey stars in “The Truman Show,” where it turns out that everything in his life is arranged for him, captured on hidden cameras and broadcast internationally. Tune in at 8/7c to watch him being watched by others. It’s very meta, you’ll love it.

Wednesday

Feeling sluggish, lethargic and far too comfortable in your chair? It’s time for your daily dose of Eli Roth. Tune in tonight at 8/7c for “Hostel II” when he’ll scare you right out of your seat. Nothing like watching three American women abroad become pawns in a grisly game designed to entertain privileged deviants to get your heart racing.

Thursday

Looking for something for you and the cat to watch? A George Clooney double feature is fun for the whole family! It starts at 8/7c with “The Perfect Storm,” based on Sebastian Junger’s novel, where Clooney stars as a fishing boat captain who goes 9 rounds with Mother Nature. Then sit tight because we’re showing “O Brother Where Art Thou” at 10:45 p.m. ET. Clooney stars as an escaped con in the Coen Brothers ebullient musical.

“O Brother Where Art Thou”

Friday

A brand new episode of “Out There” airs tonight at 10/9c. After botching his oral presentation for history class, Chad decides to make a movie instead. With Chris’ help/interference, the project becomes increasingly off-topic and out of control, leading to a disaster of near-biblical proportions.

Saturday

Strap on your roller skates and spend Saturday night with “Boogie Nights” at 8/7c or 11:15/10:15c or both. Mark Wahlberg stars as Dirk Diggler an up-and-coming porn star with a unique asset in Paul Thomas Andersons’ sordid tale of the 1970s porn industry. Burt Reynolds stars as a producer who guides Diggler to early success, before greed and egotism lead to his downfall in the ’80s.

Sunday

Watch “Braveheart” at 7:15 p.m. ET and practice screaming “They’ll never take our freedom!!!” until your roommate threatens to William Wallace you. Mel Gibson stars as the Scotsman William Wallace, who becomes rightfully enraged by the killing of his wife, and ends up leading a revolt against the tyrannical English king (Patrick McGoohan) in the 13th century.

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

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.
