A sly, slinky creeper set in an imaginary Iranian underworld, Amirpour’s debut feature blends elements of Lynchian neo-noir and spaghetti Western, but the film’s pointed, contemporary gender politics are very much its own. (Variety)

  • Mar 29 @ 1pm
  • Apr 1 @ 9:15pm

A quick-paced, glamourous espionage thriller, North By Northwest involves the tongue-in-cheek odyssey of a light-hearted and complacent Manhattan advertising executive who suddenly finds himself caught up in an unexplainable series of events and subterfuge. It all comes literally to a head on the Presidential faces of Mount Rushmore.

Battlefield Earth

Director: Roger Christian
USA 2000, 118 min
  • Apr 1 @ 7pm

Turkey Shoot again honours this fan favourite, considered one of the worst movies ever made. John Travolta battled for years to get L. Ron Hubbard's sci-fi novel made into a film. $79 million later, we have Travolta in comic book villain mode on stilts, Kelly Preston’s tongue, shaggy cavemen piloting spaceships, and Forest Whitaker as the Cowardly Lion with dreadlocks. Shot in Montreal in 1999, this gem is the most expensive movie made in Canada. And it has mucus guns! Ugh!

Featuring Live Comedic Commentary from Turkey Shoot's venerable host - Dave!
