Playing catch up from last week (still), here are looks at two great Canadian films (Rhymes for Young Ghouls and Three Night Stand), a great documentary (12 O'Clock Boys), and a pair of middling romantic dramadeys (At Middleton and Brightest Star).
We talk with 12 O'Clock Boys director Lotfy Nathan about being an outsider chronicling inner city dirt bike riding culture in Baltimore, interacting with his subjects, and what it’s like to get a police summons for filming illegal behaviour.
