This week all roads lead to the Ken Cinema

Can't get tickets for Comic-Con? Lucky you! Instead of being taken at the Con, drop in on the double feature of double-crosses opening Friday at Landmark's Ken Cinema.

Godard in 35mm? You should have already purchased tickets. A double feature of Godard and Melville in 35mm? There should be a line of lawn chairs loaded with guys and gals wearing fedoras and dangling Gitanes snaking around the corner in anticipation of Friday's 1:50pm showing of Le Petit Soldat and Un Flic.

Fortunately the Ken didn't throw away its antique booth equipment and both lovingly restored films will screen in 35mm.

How many more times is this town likely to experience 35mm revivals? I beg that you encourage this type of behavior by catching this combo before it skips town.

As for the big Con, I've never had the energy to write a piece on San Diego's annual tribute to everything that's wrong with contemporary cinema. This piece by Danny Baldwin at Critic Speak comes close to echoing my deep-seated disapproval.

Click to open my review of the Melville. You emo Twi-hards enjoy the Smurfs, and Wolverines, and all the Cosplay. Frankly, I was surprised to hear that he was still touring in his one-man show.

I'm envious, so should more movie addicts....(sigh) I live near a city that should try harder to do right by the movie starved fans. The Dallas Film Society is currently trying to kill our enthusiasm for more adventurous cinema revivals. Their recent slate for the month in the "Cinemark Classic Series" is "Back to the Future" on the 14th & 17th, "Animal House" on the 21st & 24th, "American Graffiti" (don't have a brain aneurysm, Marks it's the only Lucas film on their schedule) on the 28th and 31st, "Ghostbusters" on the 4th & 7th of August, and lastly for the pantheon of cinema of ye forgotten lore, "Dirty Dancing" on the 11th & 14th. Bleak stuff considering you can rent any one of those and watch it at home (sans 40 foot screen, big sound and audience reactions). To set you off on your near fatal stroke, I should mention that they're BIG into Speilberg, so much so they dedicated their four movies of June to him.

Maybe we don't have it so bad in San Diego after all. Ironically, the only great film you mention is "AmGraf."

I want you to tear it all down.
