UK | Dir: Peter Strickland

Tue. Oct 9, 9:30 pm, Granville 1

Both an homage to Italian horror films and a psychological thriller reminiscent of Polanski, Peter Strickland’s (Katalin Varga) entertaining work has a mild English sound technician (Toby Jones) working on a horror film in a run-down Italian movie studio when things start getting weird "An idiosyncratic, impeccably crafted mindbender… Playful and provocative…"—Screen

Two Jacks

TWO JACKS

USA | Dir: Bernard Rose

Related Links: Official Website | Trailer

Thu. Oct 4, 3:45 pm, Granville 2

Fuelled by idealism and egotism, director Jack Hussar (Danny Huston) blows through 90s Hollywood, bedding starlets and butting heads. Twenty years later, his son (Jack Huston) faces the unenviable challenge of following in his footsteps. Bernard Rose’s inspired Tolstoy adaptation is a "piquant addition to the tradition of Hollywood eulogising its monstres sacré."—Sight & Sound

Stupendous! After toiling on his masterpiece The Thief and the Cobbler for 28 years, top British animator Richard Williams—famous for Who Framed Roger Rabbit—saw it wrested from his control and savagely recut. Pairing unreleased scenes from Williams’ virtuoso fairytale with horror stories of creativity falling prey to commerce, Kevin Schreck takes us inside "the greatest animated film never made."

Room 237

ROOM 237

USA | Dir: Rodney Ascher

Sun. Oct 7, 9:45 pm, Granville 2
Thu. Oct 11, 4:00 pm, Granville 2

Perhaps no film in Sundance gained the kind of impassioned following that Rodney Ascher’s Room 237 managed… Built on the arguments of a wide swathe of thinkers, writers and maybe a few crackpots about their working theories of meanings in Kubrick’s The Shining, Ascher’s project becomes a giddy funhouse of possibilities, an Overlook Hotel of cinema readings.—Film Comment
