The year's first shoo-in for an Oscars Best Picture nomination (and perhaps Christopher Nolan's first Best Director nod) is here as Dunkirk takes over the city. This meditative triptych from Warner Bros. won't just be hitting Regal Cinemas, AMC Theatres & Flix Stadium 10 this weekend. Add indie screens at North Park Theatre and Dipson Theatres Eastern Hills for a complete blanketing of the area. Nolan fever is in full tilt.
Because of this development, there are only two other small-scale releases to note. Regal Transit is bringing the Sam Elliott-starrer THE HERO to town while Dipson Amherst will be carrying the Sally Hawkins-starrer Maudie.
"[Bless Their Little Hearts] forms, with Killer of Sheep, a landmark diptych about work as the crucible of the American character either in its abundance or its absence."
- Jim Ridley, Village Voice

Rebellion. See the film next Thursday evening at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, following our show of Killer of Sheep by Charles Burnett on Tuesday night.
