I just read an invigorating article on punctuation rules. With that in mind, you might see some drastic changes to this blog in the near future...
•The Magic Flute @ Heights; 7:15 (Opera in the Cinema). Mozart finally makes it to the silver screen.
•Carancho @ Trylon; 7:00 & 9:00 (Trylon Premiere Tuesdays). This film from Argentine director Pablo Trapero was entered in the Un Certain Regard portion of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. Here's an excerpt of a review posted on Mubi after a showing at the 2010 TIFF:
Trapped in the video-smoothed moral squalor, the film has the inevitability of a noir—a genre touchstone its starkly action-filled conclusion reinforces—but none of that genre’s uncertainly. What is certain is the ugly locality of the film, not quite immersed in the society or humanity of its setting but at the very least realistically curtailed, if not ensnared, by the honestly exaggerated fatal bleakness of Buenos Aires’ menacing night-world.
•Dirty Work @ Trylon; 7:00 (sold out) & 8:30. This documentary looks at community supported agriculture.
•Skol: The Documentary @ Heights; 8:00 (Free Screening). Minnesota sports fans are gluttons for punishment, so this doc should be a huge hit. Relive the failures of the Viking's most recent season through the eyes of their fans- oh wait, didn't we already do that in real time last fall?
•Battle Queen Conquers Tokyo @ Bell Museum; 7:00 (Sustainability Film Series). I know the title sounds like an awesome 50's b-movie, but this documentary actually captures Japan's love affair with bugs.
•Unforgiven @ Riverview; 7:00 (Eastwood & Wayne Western Series). Clint Eastwood goes back to the wild west in this 1992 Best Picture winner.
