The Oak Cliff Film Festival is still young (this is it’s fifth year), but it treats audiences to dozens of older films (among them works by Brian DePalma and Terrence Malick), as well as newer ones, including a short documentary with the shocking title When AIDS Was Funny, that features joking press conferences during the Regan Era when AIDS was mocked. It’s a true film lover’s potpourri.
