So here I sit, awake too early, with an icepack strapped to my jaw (see below), waiting for the anti- inflammatories to kick in. What to do but note a few cool upcoming film screenings?
This Friday at the Vancity Theatre there is a late night (10:30 pm) screening of Ginger Snaps, which is a must-see if you've missed it; it's certainly the best Canadian werewolf movie I've seen.
I have not seen the latest Alamo Drafthouse cult-movie "find," The Visitor, but the cast alone is an eyebrow-raiser: John Huston, Glenn Ford, Lance Henriksen, Joanne Nail (of Switchblade Sisters fame), Sam Peckinpah, Shelley Winters... what? Yes, folks, I would see any film where there is a chance Sam Peckinpah might interact with Shelley Winters. Trailer and description here. Also upcoming: the new Edward Burtynsky/ Jennifer Baichwal collaboration Watermark, and the compelling-sounding Canadian drama Enemy. You can see one or the other double-billed with The Visitor depending which day you go on...
