Despite car destruction and Canadian terrorism, Toronto After Dark carries on, as does the further adventures of World War II – this time carried on the backs of tanks and Brad Pitt. John Carpenter’s biggest film (in terms of budget) is on tap in the 1984 Project with Starman: starring brother Shamus, Jeff Bridges and a career performance from Karen Allen. In this episode we have everything from Alamo tanks and a literal fog of war, to super heated crowbars, records of pure gold, women peeing, 26 short films, Hitchcockian suspense, Jim Broadbent clones and Steven McHattie taking charge. And to think next week, is Birdman… how much more exciting can the cinema experience be than right now?
