Wacky comic week of films


This week our filmhouse is taking on a rather comic like theme with these screenings

A History of Violence, a 2005 American crime thriller film directed by David Cronenberg, and written by Josh Olson, based on the graphic novel of the same name by John Wagner and Vince Locke. The film features Viggo Mortensen as the owner of a diner who is thrust into the spotlight after killing two robbers in self-defense.

Watchmen, is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” which is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues  is murdered, the masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. Along with Dr. Manhattan, Nite Owl II & Silk Spectre II, they all set out to prevent their own destruction, but in doing so discover a deeper and far more diabolical plot

Kickass, this year’s blockbuster where Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a super-hero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so.

Sin City, a film that explores the dark and miserable town Basin City and tells the story of three different people, all caught up in the violent corruption of the city
