Reel Forecast: The Calm Before the FNC, F.W. Murnau's Sunrise, Gilbert Grape & Hard Core Logo

Posted by Andrés / October 8, 2011

20111007_reelforecast.jpg(Film screening suggestions for the week of October 7-13) The Festival du Nouveau Cinema starts next Thursday and will literally take over every film venue in the city. As if the city is gearing up for this event, independent film screenings are few and far between in the coming week. Nevertheless, there are still some fine choices, and it gives everyone some time to figure out what they want to watch when FNC hits.

The Cine Club Film Society snuck in quite unawares this year with a slew of great monthly programming. Interestingly they've opted for a relatively new arts centre as the venue for their films: the Crowley Arts Center, right around the corner from Vendome metro across from the site of the new hospital megaplex. On Sunday, F.W. Murnau's Sunrise will be accompanied on piano by Simon Sloutsker. This is regarded as one of the finest (and last) silent films made, and is the first American production by the German director (best known for his vampire flick, Nosferatu). (more info)

On Tuesday, choose from two free screenings. One is the documentary, You Never Bike Alone, screening at McGill University and organized by Cinema Politica. Taking place in Vancouver, the doc documents the rising popularity of critical mass bike rides. (more info) Your other option is to head over to the Montréal North Cultural Center to watch a young Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp (women can swoon now) in the Lasse Hallstrom film, What's Eating Gilbert Grape. Depp plays a small town young adult who is finding the task of taking care of his special needs brother and overweight restrictive and overwhelming. Note: The screening advertising is in French, but they don't mention whether it will be English with French subtitles or dubbed. The screening is at 7pm. For address, check below.

At this year's FNC, the sequel to Bruce MacDonald's cult classic, Hard Core Logo, will premiere. If you have yet to watch this mockumentary on the Vancouver punk scene, head over to the Cinémathèque québécoise on Wednesday for a screening of the original. (more info)
