Antichrist

CJSF volunteer Hayley Gauvin reviews Lars Von Trier's controversial and provocative film Antichrist at this year's Vancouver Film Festival...

 There is little to no room for fence sitting when it comes to this movie. Antichrist has left audiences at Cannes, Toronto, New York, and now Vancouver at the opposite poles of outrage and elation. The film is very controversial, very graphic, and not for the faint of heart.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

CJSF volunteer Mike Hoff reviews Terry Gilliam's newest film at the 28th annual Vancouver International Film Festival....

“The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus” is Terry Gilliam’s tour de force of the imagination: creatively limitless, fantastically obscure, overwhelmingly preposterous, yet visually delightful. Both humourous and profound, the riveting storyline kidnaps us and holds us hostage until the end-credits roll.

The DOXA Documentary Film Festival: 10 Days 75 Films

Scott Wood's reviews of the DOXA Documentary Film Festival continue...

Necrobusiness

Director: Fredrik von Krusenstjerna and Richard Solarz, Sweden, 2008, 90 minutes

Wednesday May 27 | 7:00PM | Vancity Theatre

Necrobusiness is about the seamy side of the undertaking business. Now you might expect a Dateline style, serious take on the subject. Instead the director finds himself an earnest but streetwise investigative journalist, Monika Sieradzka, to track down these nefarious gents.

Vancouver Jewish Film Festival Mini-Fest

A line-up forms on Arbutus Street, near 16th Avenue, snakes past the Ridge Theatre, and rounds the curb. A smattering of languages is heard throughout the line, including Hebrew, English, Spanish, Russian, and Polish. The crowd is in line to see ‘Beau Jest’, the play-turned-film from writer-director James Sherman.
