The Black Dog Newsletter: “I Want You to Want Me Edition!”
So as you’ve probably heard, we’re in the middle (hopefully near the end) of a global pandemic! On a smaller scale that means that we won’t be getting much in the line of new Hollywood movies for a while. But RJ and myself have put our noggins together and have been scouring the film world for cool, interesting films to fill that void. Recently we’ve acquired new films from:
The Dardenne Brothers (2 films!)
And more are on the way! Every week (or so). So do yourself (and us) a favour and pop in and try some of these on for size! You just might be pleasantly surprised.
American Dharma – Latest Errol Morris doc as he turns his critical lens on political scumbag, Steve Bannon.
Bacurau – Strange, but amazing sounding film set in a small town in Brazil where strange things are happening. RJ assures me that I will love this film. I hope you do as well. Has Udo Kier in it so I’m sold.
In the Fog – Intense, slow burning and haunting are words that can be used to describe this WWII film from Russia. Sign me up!
Unknown Girl – Latest intense film from the Dardenne Brothers (The Son, The Child) finds a teenager dying after being ignored at a doctor’s office. (at Commercial, soon to Cambie)
Zombi Child – Cool looking French film finds a girl telling a family secret about…well my guess it may involve zombies! (at Commercial, soon to Cambie)
(today and tomorrow!)
Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye
Come and See – Blu Ray
Ride Your Wave
Survive the Night
Jack Ryan Season 2
His Dark Materials
And we lost a couple of screen legends over the weekend, Olivia de Havilland (she was 104! And in Gone with the Wind!) and a Black Dog favourite, John Saxon (Enter the Dragon, Black Christmas). Here’s a photo of me with John Saxon and Kier-la (former Black Dogger and creator of Cinemuerte Film Fest) from way back in 2003. He was a very nice gentleman.
That’s it for this week, folks. Stay out of the punishing sun, drink plenty of fluids, have fun and keep watching!
