Black Dog Newsletter July 4 – 10 “No Cars For You Edition!”


This Sunday on the Drive it’s Car Free Day. Please don’t drive your car to Car Free Day. Also 1st Avenue between Clark and Nanaimo is closed for a while so please don’t drive on that street. Maybe just don’t drive, period. Lots of good, tasty treats for you this week!

New Releases!


Another Wolfcop – Aahwoooo! Its another wolfcop! Alcoholic werewolf cop Lou Garou must stop the evil plans of an evil mastermind who plans on opening up a brewery. Wait, that doesn’t sound very evil.


Beirut – How do you like you middle eastern political thrillers? With a side of Hamm? Jon Hamm that is! Pretty good flick. Sad to see how that nice city was destroyed.


Beyond the Hills – Excellent serious drama from Christan Mungiu, (4 Months 3 Weeks 2 Days, Graduation), about two women who grew up in the same orphanage in Romania. Their relationship gets, shall we say, complicated.


Double Lover – Fine tight little French thriller from Francois Ozon (Swimming Pool, Young and Beautiful) that finds a young woman falling for her psychoanalyst but is he who he appears to be? Maybe. Maybe not.

MV5BYzViOTBmMGUtODBlMi00YzYzLThiM2MtOGFlMzZkNWU4NDRjXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyODE0MDY3NzY@._V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_Flower – Black comedy about a sexually curious young woman who forms an unusual, one might say unorthodox, relationship with her step brother. Your guess is as good as mine!


Graduation – Excellent serious drama from Christan Mungiu, (4 Months 3 Weeks 2 Days, Beyond the Hills) about a father and daughter living in Transylvania (yes it’s a real place). She wants to go away for school but an attack jeopardizes her future. It’s up to her dad to sort things out.


Journey’s End – Heavy WWI war drama about some guys unraveling in a trench in France as the war draws to a close. Trench warfare is not for me, that’s for sure.


Tag – Nutbar flick from Sion Sono (Cold Fish, Suicide Club) finds a school girl’s life descending into chaos as everyone around her keeps meeting gruesome fates. I’d like a taste of this piece of crazy candy!


A Quiet Place – Intense quiet horror film about life in the post-apocalyptic future where monsters with great hearing will kill you if you make any kind of sound. Pretty high on my list of films to watch!

Coming Soon!

Dark Crimes
Isle of Dogs
The Expanse Season 3
Sneaky Pete Season 1
The Tunnel Season 3
You Were Never Really Here
Escape Plan 2

That’s it for this week, my lovelies. Make the best of the nice weather during the day and pop into the stores for your nighttime summer film wants and needs.
