February 29, 2012 - "The Celebration" (1998)

Because of a shipping issue, our screening of "The Celebration" will take place Feb. 29 instead of its originally scheduled date.

Read about the film in the original blog post.

Review of last week's film, "The Tree of LIfe" (3.5 stars)
Steven says: Oddly compelling and visually stunning, this film throws a lot at you. A simple story line is elevated to allegory. We see depictions of nature and grace and how they coexist in life, from creation to present day. Grandiose at times, the film speaks to certain audience members more than others. I particularly enjoyed the cinematography and imagery within confines of the 1950s story line. I polled the audience for ratings, and they ranged from 2 to 5+ on a scale of 1 to 5.
