FANTASIA: The Last Week-End!

What great movies I have seen so far! The last one I saw was Ryuzo and the Seven Henchmen . This is a Japanese comedy about seven ex-yakuza gangsters going back into business after retirement! It is hilarious!

For example one of the "killers" was known for the way he killed the enemy from the toilet. We see him hiding in a Port-o-let and then striking as his target sits for a crap. It is subtle and mad with the most unusual twists, a signature of many movies presented at FANTASIA.

There are still great films to be seen. The Golden Cane Warrior an Shinjuku Swan, a Manga movie, The Editor, a creepy "giallo" style thriller are playing today.

Tomorrow, August 1rst,  the day starts with Snow Girl and the Dark Crystal a luscious epic of Good fighting Evil from China. Later ASIEL NORTON will present his latest movie starring DAVID ARQUETTE Orion, a film that evokes a Mad Max type of end-of-the-world scenario.

August 2nd Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet will put a big smile on your face!

There are soooo many great choices and extra screenings to some of the most popular films of the festival. Finally on Monday August 3rd there is a screening of Marshland, a neo-noir thriller that won many awards in Europe recently!
