Appreciating a Recent Movie at Zinema 2

I forget how lucky we are to have the locally operated Zinema, especially on its $5 days. Last night I saw Colossal, a movie starring and co-produced by Anne Hathaway. (Spoilers)

I’ve seen nearly every Godzilla movie, so the idea that every morning, when Gloria (Hathaway) is hung over, a Kaiju Monster attacks Seoul seemed interesting — a metaphor for the unintended consequences of alcoholism, I figured. Pretty straightforward, low-brain energy attempt to be deep, but with Kaiju!

The opening scene shows Gloria’s boyfriend throwing her out, telling her he can’t be with her when she’s out of control like this. It’s designed to communicate to the audience: Gloria’s addiction is the problem.

Made in Minnesota Thriller “Four Boxes” Coming to Zinema 2 for World Theatrical Debut

Four Boxes, a made-in-Minnesota thriller described as Rear Window on the Internet” and starring Justin Kirk (Showtime’s Weeds), will make its World Theatrical Premiere in Duluth at the Zinema 2 Theater May 21 to 27, 2010.

Written, produced and directed by Minneapolis filmmaking husband-and-wife team Wyatt McDill and Megan Huber, Four Boxes had its World Premiere at last year’s South-by-Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas. The film will tour nationally in the Fall to coincide with a Halloween release of the DVD, but Duluth will be the first place in America – outside of a festival – to get a peek at the film variously described as “The Blair Witch Project meets YouTube,” and “The Sex, Lies and Videotape of our time.” Visit fourboxesthemovie.com to see the trailer and find out more!
