Blink and you'll miss them at the ARC cinema

The National Film and Sound Archive’s Arc Cinema has announced they’re running a special catch up season of movies that didn’t make big screen release in Canberra this year.

Our 2010-11 summer derby of some of the films that didn’t make it to Canberra’s cinema screens – or were gone before you knew they were here – begins with the ultimate Hollywood insider documentary, I’m Still Here: director-actor Casey Affleck’s looks at the mid-life crisis of fellow actor, and brother-in-law, Joquin Phoenix. Highlights in December also include the new detour into the erotic thriller genre by the acclaimed Canadian-Armenian auteur Atom Egoyan and Please Give: the underrated comedy of New York moral angst from Nicole Holofcener (Lovely and Amazing) – one of a great slate of new films from leading US indie woman directors coming in wake of Katherine Bigelow’s success with Hurt Locker.

Highlights over the summer will include new films by Lukas Moodysson, from veteran masters Carlos Saura and James Ivory, and the Bollywood sleeper Peepi (Live).

i would have loved to see ‘the Agora’ but with the closing of Electric Shadows there is no true alternative cinema in Canberra anymore.
