Reel Forecast: 7th Montreal International Black Film Festival, For a Few Dollars More, Citizen Kane

Posted by Andrés / September 23, 2011

20110923_reelforecast.jpg(Film screening suggestions for the week of September 23-29) The pop explosion that has hit Montréal is not limited to bands, but extends itself to art and children's events, plays, and movies! Curated by Kier-La Janisse, who runs Blue Sunshine, FilmPop brings the festival to big screens across the city. Screenings of note in the coming week include the Saturday Morning Cartoon Rock Party, a showcase with free admission that is a compilation of 60s to 70s cartoon intros and music. PJ Harvey: Let England Shake is an album-length music video, in which the artist approached a war photographer to shoot videos for each song. Check out all the programming on the Pop Montreal website. (more info)

Beginning the fall film festival season is the 7th Montreal International Black Film Festival. Its goal is to highlight black directors, actors and writers, and to screen films (from comedies to dramas to documentaries) that will share black stories from around the world. Films of note include The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975, a Swedish documentary about the movement filmed during its peak. Skin deals with themes of belonging, in which a white family fights for their black daughter to be classified white so she can continue going to school in their neighbourhood. Its the kind of classification nightmare that exists in places like South Africa. And speaking of issues of belonging, the NFB will be screening documentaries about the difficulties experienced by black children who are also albino. This and more all week. (more info)

My last two recommendations for the week are cinema classics. The first, Citizen Kane, is considered by many to be THE cinema classic. Directed and starring Orson Welles, this fictional film was in fact an indictment of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, and ignited a battle of wills between both men. Apart from its behind-the-scenes drama, the film is recognized as introducing some stylistic and storytelling innovations to cinema. This is playing at Banque Scotia and a few other Cineplex theaters on Sunday at 1pm for a measly $5 (not much more than the cost of a rental). If you like your classics bloody and misogynistic, check out For a Few Dollars More at Theatre Rialto. Starring Clint Eastwood, this is the second in The Man Without a Name trilogy of spaghetti Westerns. The cost is $15, but this includes a 30-minute live rendition of Ennio Morriconne's score as well as hors d'oeuvres. In true Rialto style, those who attend are encouraged to bring their finest Western attire to the screening. (more info)

When thinking about graphs, it is recommended to hold off until a craze is fully formed prior to deciding to enter a industry. A graph or chart may look quite encouraging however if a signaling bar or possibly a candle is not fully shut, you can not be sure that the buy and sell you are looking for will turn into an excellent position. Commit the maximum amount of time as you have when composing the wedding vows. Remember you need your soon-to-be husband or wife to know exactly how much they imply to you personally. Also, do not use outside the house resources when producing your vows--you want to make sure the phrases are the things you feel, not what someone does. nike air max 90
