Whitewash is an ambitious, if decidedly problematic debut Canadian feature that’s arriving in theatres at the perfect time.
With films coming to home video two days this week (Tuesday and Friday) here's part one of our look at the latest releases including Beasts of the Southern Wild, Killer Joe, Total Recall, Premium Rush, and Arbitrage.
It certainly can't be recommended for everybody, but for keen viewers familiar with a stomach for pitch black humour and a cast of irredeemable characters, William Friedkin and Tracy Letts' Killer Joe might be one of the best movies of the year.
Enter for a chance to win one of ten pairs of tickets to see an advance screening of Killer Joe in Toronto or Vancouver on Thursday, August 9th at 10:00pm.
On top of making back a gargantuan, near quarter of a billion dollar budget, John Carter isn't exactly the easiest sell in the world even by mega-blockbuster standards. It's extremely literate to the point where it just might alienate audiences looking for average escapist fare.
