Review is being reposted as part of our Whistler Film Festival coverage.] Now that Don LaFontaine is narrating trailers for the big guy in heaven, I would like to nominate actor Stephen McHattie as the logical successor to the phrase, “In a World, where…” Bruce McDonald’s latest film takes the...

WFF Review: Who Is KK Downey?

[Review is graciously provided by Dr. Nathan care of our friends at Quiet Earth.] Who is KK Downey? Careful, that might be a trick question.

WFF Review: Surveillance

[Review is graciously provided by Bob Doto care of our friends at Quiet Earth.] Every five minutes while watching Surveillance, my appreciation of the film shifted. My first thought after having seen roughly 15-20 super low-budget shorts over the course of a weekend, was “Oh. This is a ‘real movie’ with a budget.” Then I thought “But, it’s kind of got a...

WFF Review: Carts of Darkness

[Film was originally reviewed in April 2008. Review is being reposted as part of our Whistler Film Festival coverage.] Westcoasters may complain about the weather but ask anyone who has lived in Vancouver for any significant amount of time and they’re likely to agree that moving is out of the question.
