The Wright Stuff Strikes Back in Toronto TONIGHT!
Not only has Edgar Wright directed the greatest love-letter to Toronto ever penned (not to mention to comics, video games and HK action - see Shelagh and Todd's review) he has given the city itself fantastic opportunities to immerse itself in celluloid classics through his terrific film series THE WRIGHT STUFF. Last year during production of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, he screened a dozen of his favorite films including the severely underrated Philip Kaufman masterpiece The Wanderers, Busby Berkely's Dames and David Cronenberg's The Brood to name a few.
Now back in town for the press tour of Scott Pilgrim, he's wrangled up a new series of faves and he's screening them this weekend at the Toronto Underground Cinema, along with a double bill of his already classic comedies Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.
Here's the skinny:
7:00pm Shaun of the Dead (Edgar Wright, 2004)
9:30pm Hot Fuzz (Edgar Wright, 2004)
7:00pm Flash Gordon (Mike Hodges, 1980)
9:30pm Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (Ngai Kai Lam, 1991)
7:00pm Ferris Bueller's Day Off (John Hughes, 1986)
9:30pm Rushmore (Wes Anderson, 1998)
Tickets are $8 for singles, $14 for double bills and there's a limited supply of passes to see the whole shebang for only $25!
It is all going down at the Toronto Underground Cinema @ 186 Spadina Avenue.
