NOW IN THEATERS...
One of the worst July 4 movie weekends of all time if you look at the major releases. Go small, or see Edge of Tomorrow if you haven't already. Or again.
* Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist, a new documentary about the rise and fall of an Italian bicycle racer.
* Snowpiercer, a mad futuristic vision from Bong Joon-ho. One of the best films of the summer, and one of the best would-be blockbusters of the year.
The NW Film Center will be kicking off their summer-long animation festival with Akira and Grave of the Fireflies as their first two choices.
Also, some folks will be getting A Hard Day's Night in revival thanks to the new Blu-ray release. Portland is one of those places.
WATCH IT AT HOME:
* Hearts and Minds, a newly remastered version of Peter Davis' innovative Vietnam War documentary. It now seems chillingly prescient.
* Judex, Georges Franju's pulpy homage to cliffhanger cinema is a surprising precursor to Archer Coe!
Current Soundtrack: Kele Okereke, Candy Flip
