Tale of Tales, screening as part of the European Union Film Festival
The European Union Film Festival, always a highlight of the year's filmgoing calendar, opens Friday with Joost van Ginkel's The Paradise Suite, which Bill Stamets calls "a medley of interpersonal crises [that] widens into a moving vista of modern Europe." Check out our 16-film roundup of the festival, which runs all through March. Also this week, Fred Camper has the lowdown on the Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival, with four installations and nine shorts programs screening through the weekend at Defibrillator Gallery. And check out our new issue for capsule reviews of: London Has Fallen, an action flick about terrorists swinging England like a pendulum; The Wave, billed as the first Norwegian disaster flick; and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, starring Tina Fey as an American journalist in Kabul.
