Movies to check out this week

Categories:

The Portland International Film Festival continues at the NW Film Center this week. I haven't seen as many this year as I'd like to, but the ones I have seen have been good. Recommendations (be sure to check nwfilm.org for an updated schedule):

Bluebeard
France
dir: Catherine Breillat
(6pm Thurs, 6pm Fri, and 3pm Sun)

Catherine Breillat is brilliant but a little wacky. Her films aren't for everyone, but if you like her previous work (Sex Is Comedy, The Last Mistress, among others), Bluebeard will be a treat. It's a retelling of the bloody fairy tale about a wealthy ogre of a man whose new brides keep disappearing.

A rare opportunity

Categories:

As of this writing, on Feb. 16, you have the opportunity to see two of the greatest films of all time, The Third Man, which I gushed about yesterday, and Casablanca, nothing less than my favorite movie of all time, and a perfect companion piece to the other.

Casablanca is at the Living Room Theaters right now, and in HD, yet.

Wolfman and Third Man, poles apart

Categories:

Two films are currently showing on Portland screens, and I will review one of them.

Not Wolfman.  This film was screened only for The Oregonian, and we were not invited.  This happens several times a year.  And Shawn Levy is not to blame, nor is the paper.  Shawn didn't like the film much, and neither did anyone else as far as I can see.  Studios will occasionally not screen films for critics, always a bad sign, but selective screenings mystify me.  Why not let us all see the film?
