Friday, Sept. 15

3 pm - Seraphim Falls - Elgin
Old fashioned western of a man (Pierce Brosnon) being chased by another (Liam Neeson) through the wilds and only slowly do we understand the motivation for the chase. Film is shot in a beautiful location and Bronson does a good job with limited dialogue at showing his character's struggle to survive even though he has demons from the past. But the film pace is very slow and as a result, butts start shifting in the seats.

6 pm - When the Levees Break - Ryerson
Spike Lee's documentary on New Orleans before/after Katrina is told in four parts. Powerful documentatry that does show both sides although it's definitely slanted as it should be. This has already been shown on HBO.
