INDEPENDENT FILMS – Kathy Kay

Not to miss is a new film De Palma, about Brian de Palma

There is a great, mixed bag of indie films coming to Victoria for the summer: Mia Madre, Meddler, Viva and so much more. Even though days are long and sunny, it still seems like the cool of the theatre in the summer is a ritual begun in childhood.

I caught Love & Friendship at the Seattle Film Festival and thought it was positively delightful. Based on a Jane Austen book, it’s elegant, witty and so much fun. It will be having a run at both Cinecenta and The Vic.

Also not to miss is a new film De Palma, about Brian de Palma. De Palma was at a seminal moment in film history along with Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, the “young guns” of their day. De Palma pushed boundaries with Carrie, Dressed to Kill and Scarface. This entertaining documentary provides an insider’s view to the man’s way of thinking and his stylish, lavish films – it’s not to be missed.
