Interview: Alicia Fletcher

We talk to Alicia Fletcher, film archivist and programmer for the Silent Sundays series of silent films at The Revue, who this Sunday will screen comedies from silent film heavyweights Buster Keaton, Fatty Arbuckle, and Charlie Chaplin. We talk about her work as an archivist, the importance of music in silent films today and during initial release, and a bit about the diverging careers and films of Arbuckle and Keaton.

Hellaware Review

Michael M. Bilandic’s slyly hilarious hipster piss take Hellaware (screening for free at the Revue Cinema in Toronto as part of the Refocus series this Wednesday) comes as the latest film in an interesting year full of films about fucked up visions of the “American Dream," only the more genuine perceived backwoods rubes are the victims of a hipster fraud from the big city.

Interview: Dion Conflict

Dork Shelf talks to all nigh B-movie maven and host of Shock and Awe (happening at Toronto's Revue Cinema this Friday at 11:30pm) Dion Conflict about this year’s selections, the work that goes into the festival, his love for Shock and Awe crowds, spaghetti westerns, sex flicks being on the cutting edge of technology, being duped into seeing Mac and Me a second time in theatres, programming shorts between the features, how the mystery feature stays under wraps (with a slight tease for this year), and finding the right times to run certain movies that might not have gone over as well a year or two prior.
