The much-anticipated Crazy Rich Asians adaptation hit theaters this week with a wonderful showing for Asian-American representation in a Hollywood backed film. Its bread and butter may be its rom/com trappings, but there's a nice bit of commentary on internal racism and parental pressures as well. See it at Dipson Theatres Amherst, AMC Theatres (both Maple Ridge and the newly opened Market Arcade), Regal Cinemas, and Flix Stadium 10.
As for the indie scene: • Acclaimed documentary McQueen Movie about fashion icon Alexander McQueen comes to Dipson Eastern Hills • North Park Theatre has a two-day showing of both ALWAYS AT THE CARLYLE and THE NIGHT IS SHORT, WALK ON GIRL. See their Wed/Thurs schedule for details.
"In his feature debut, Viktor Jakovleski has achieved that rare feat for a documentary and created a film culled from reality that makes you question whether you're still in your theater seat." - Arlin Golden, Film Inquiry
