DRESS WITH WES

kane

This Hallowe'en, Dress With Wes!
On Friday October 31st we're screening The Grand Budapest Hotel at 9pm, and we invite and encourage you to come dressed as your favourite character from a Wes Anderson film. Looking like Symour Cassel should be reward enough, but in case you need more initiative, did we mention there'd be PRIZES?

CYNICISM IS MY WHISKY, AND I'D HAD A FEW

bonnie

"Bruce McCulloch was my Jack Kerouac, my The Doors. I can't be sure if I adopted Brucio's view of the world's weird woe before I had my own opinion of it, my own experience in it--the same way the pop punk of the time introduced tweens to anger before they actually felt angry--or whether he just described it to me ahead of time, so I'd know it when I saw it."

REARVIEW: SILENCE OF THE LAMBS

kane

"While in film it is not uncommon for a woman to be mistreated at the hands of a man, not often does another woman come to her rescue. Clarice, we will later discover in conversation with Lecter, is haunted by the screaming of lambs that she could not save from death as a child and this impotence in the face of innocent slaughter has become her raison díetre."READ MORE


REVIEW: OF BONE AND THUNDER

kane

"This is simply one of the best fantasy books I have ever read. Alternatively humorous, dark, and saddening, Chris Evans' new novel is an exercise in the futility of warfare and the desperation of those involved in it."READ MORE


REVIEW:
THE MINIATURIST

kane

"Itís sometimes said that genre fiction resolves and literary fiction resonates. Such is the case here, where the story of 18-year-old Nella Oortman, whoís just begun a new life in the city of Amsterdam after marrying merchant trader Johannes Brandt, winds its way toward an ending that is far more thematically satisfying than a piece of genre fiction usually is. On the flip side, however, its plot resolution is . . . well, a bit light, as knots are left untied and questions left unanswered. But the novelís conclusion is intentional and not a flaw in the design." READ MORE
