Here is a sneak peak at the fast approaching Victoria Film Festival.

Want a sweet lovely film? Look no further than The Stag, a light Irish comedy about a gentle soul forced to attend his own stag party. Directed by writer John Butler it treks familiar ground but does it better than anything coming from the mainstream.

I love Francois Ozon films, they’re cheeky, satirical and quite diverse. He moves from playful to disturbing to quirky with barely a missed beat. Think 8 Women featuring every great French actress, In the House (VFF 2013), and Swimming Pool with Charlotte Rampling. If you’re looking for a body of work to explore take his on. His latest Young & Beautiful is hot and explores one of his favorite topics, human sexuality.

Around town: Kill Your Darlings at The Vic Theatre. It’s Daniel Radcliffe all grown up in a 1944 murder that draws together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.
