Halifax film screening picks — Dec 28-Jan 3

28 Dec
December 28, 2015

Update Tuesday December 29—Just saw Joy and I am pleasantly surprised to report that it is a genuinely inventive, smart and thoughtfully crafted film. All the more surprising after the garbage that was American Hustle. Adding it forthwith to my list of recommendations below.

It seemed like it took forever to get here, but the best-reviewed film of 2015, Todd Haynes’ masterpiece Carol, is finally in Halifax theatres. Don’t miss it as I’m sure it won’t be around for very long—it is only playing at Cineplex Park Lane, at the moment.

Speaking of Park Lane, the late night screening there this weekend is James Cameron’s 1986 Aliens, the second film in a franchise that seems to roll on relentlessly despite having never bettered this instalment.

Here are my Halifax area screening picks for this week:

  • Tuesday (Dec 28) — Carol, Cineplex Park Lane, 12:45pm,‎ ‎4pm,‎ ‎7:15pm &‎ ‎10:10pm, ‎regular pricing discounted Tuesday, film continues through Thursday (at least). John Crowley, UK/USA, 2015, 118 minutes.
    Joy, Cineplex multiplexes everywhere, various times, ‎regular pricing discounted Tuesday, film continues through Thursday (at least). David O. Russell, USA, 2015, 125 minutes.
    — Brooklyn, Cineplex Oxford, 1pm, 3:50pm, 6:45pm & 9:40pm, ‎regular pricing discounted Tuesday, film continues through Thursday (at least). John Crowley, Ireland/UK/Canada, 2015, 112 minutes.
