This weekend’s KIDS SESSION at The Flicks 1 features the screening of THE INCREDIBLES on our big screens, this Saturday and Sunday at 10am. Reservations are advised.

Once one of the world’s top masked crime fighters, Bob Parr–known to all as “Mr. Incredible”–fought evil and saved lives on a daily basis.

But now fifteen years later, Bob and his wife–a famous superhero in her own right–have adopted civilian identities and retreated to the suburbs to live normal lives with their three kids. Now he’s a clock-punching insurance claims adjuster fighting boredom and a bulging waistline. Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top-secret assignment.

14:00 INCEPTION (2010) @ The Flicks 1+2+3
 
event pic

Visionary filmmaker Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Dark Knight) writes and directs this psychological sci-fi action film about a thief who possesses the power to enter into the dreams of others.

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) doesn't steal things, he steals ideas. By projecting himself deep into the subconscious of his targets, he can glean information that even the best computer hackers can't get to. In the world of corporate espionage, Cobb is the ultimate weapon. But even weapons have their weakness, and when Cobb loses everything, he's forced to embark on one final mission in a desperate quest for redemption.

This time, Cobb won't be harvesting an idea, but sowing one. Should he and his team of specialists succeed, they will have discovered a new frontier in the art of psychic espionage.

They've planned everything to perfection, and they have all the tools to get the job done. Their mission is complicated, however, by the sudden appearance of a malevolent foe that seems to know exactly what they're up to, and precisely how to stop them.

16:00 Pumping Iron (1976) @ Meta House
 

It's hard to imagine that, before he became a multi-million dollar movie star and the “Governator of California”, Arnold Schwarzenegger started his film career with PUMPING IRON (1976, 85 min). Basically a documentary about the world of bodybuilding, it focuses on Arnold’s last effort at attaining the Mr. Olympia for the sixth time in a row, before officially retiring from the "best sport" and heading off to Hollywood. Its in-your-face images of the bodybuilding subculture's well-oiled narcissism both startled and fascinated viewers, making for an unlikely box office hit.

16:30 BEGIN AGAIN (new) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together.

Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own.

Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.

18:30 WALING ON SUNSHINE (new) @ The Flicks 1+2+3
 
event pic

Set to the music of popular hit songs from the 1980s, this film takes place in a beautiful coastal village, present day Italy.

After a whirlwind romance, Maddie is preparing to marry gorgeous Italian Raf, and has invited her sister Taylor to the wedding. Unbeknownst to Maddie, however, Raf is Taylor’s ex-holiday flame, and the love of her life…

With its “Mamma Mia”-esque setup and pop playlist of ’80s hits, this jukebox musical offers bubble-gum fun in the sun. – VARIETY

Sexy, not smutty, and resisting the temptation to be anything other than a family-friendly romp, Walking on Sunshine is such a feelgood pre-holiday tonic it should be available on the NHS. – BIRMINGHAM MAIL

Like the best karaoke turns, it’s cheesy, rough around the edges and doesn’t take itself at all seriously. I think that’s what makes it so endearing. – DAILY STAR

20:15 LAND HO! (new) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

A pair of 60-something ex-brothers-in-law sets off on a road trip through Iceland, hoping to reclaim their youth.

Their picaresque adventures, from trendy Reykjavík to rugged outback, are a throwback to classic bawdy road comedies as well as a candid exploration of aging, loneliness, and friendship.

[An] engaging, low-key character study. – CHICAGO READER

As a performance showcase it’s intriguing simply because Eenhoorn and Nelson barely belong to the same species, so different are they in demeanor. – CHICACO TRIBUNE

“Land Ho!” is an indie oddball of a movie that wanders about with two seniors looking to squeeze a bit more out of life. The squeezing is gentle but affirming, just like the film. – DETROIT NEWS

“Land Ho!” is a high-spirited and life-affirming film about drinking life down to the last drop. “Don’t get that Sunday afternoon attitude,” Mitch admonishes Colin near the end of the trip. “It ain’t over with yet.” – MADISON MOVIE

Land Ho! delights because it isn’t trying to make too much of itself. It’s simply a fun movie about two guys who will admit they’re getting older, but are damn sure not getting old. – SALT LAKE TRIBUNE

20:30 David Lynch's BLUE VELVET (1986) @ The Flicks 3
 
event pic

Director David Lynch crafted this hallucinogenic mystery-thriller that probes beneath the cheerful surface of suburban America to discover sadomasochistic violence, corruption, drug abuse, crime and perversion.

Kyle Maclachlan stars as Jeffrey Beaumont, a square-jawed young man who returns to his picture-perfect small town when his father suffers a stroke. Walking through a field near his home, Jeff discovers a severed human ear, which he immediately brings to the police.

Their disinterest sparks Jeff’s curiosity, and he is soon drawn into a dangerous drama that’s being played out by a lounge singer, Dorothy Vallens (Isabella Rossellini) and the ether-addicted Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper).

The sociopathic Booth has kidnapped Dorothy’s young son and is using the child as a bargaining chip to repeatedly beat, humiliate and rape Dorothy. Though he’s drawn to the virginal, wholesome Sandy Williams (Laura Dern), Jeff is also aroused by Dorothy and in trying to aid her, he discovers his dark side.

As the film nears its conclusion, our hero learns that many more indivduals are tacitly involved with Frank, including a suave, lip-synching singer, Ben (Dean Stockwell), who is minding the kidnapped boy.

Director Lynch explored many similar themes of the “disease” lying just under the surface of the small town, all-American faade in his later television series Twin Peaks (1990-91).

20:30 THE KILLING FIELDS (1984) @ The Flicks 2
 
event pic

Sydney Schanberg is a New York Times journalist covering the civil war in Cambodia. Together with local representative Dith Pran, they cover some of the tragedy and madness of the war, in Phnom Penh.

When the American forces leave, Dith Pran sends his family with them, but stays behind himself to help Schanberg cover the event. As an American, Schanberg won't have any trouble leaving the country, but the situation is different for Pran; he's a local, and the Khmer Rouge are moving in.

The Killing Fields is a suspenseful and exhilarating experience, a journey through an apocalyptic landscape that features one shocking image after another. Watch, and you'll see why the film is so acclaimed and a must-see for everybody in Cambodia; locals as visitors.

"Hello Sally!" by Em Riem @ The Plantation
 
event pic

Hello Sally! is an exclusive and new collection of 17 abstract paintings. These result from a long academic journey within the traditional Cambodian art of painting. In this exhibition, Em Riem is now extending his talent to the world of abstract, while still glorifying his culture and knowledge in his own and unique way.

Hello Sally! will be Em Riem’s 3rd exhibition at The Plantation. He was indeed the very first artist to exhibit at the Lotus Pond Gallery early 2012 and participated later to the collective exhibition ”40 masks - 40 artists”. Paintings are available for sale.

Originally from Kandal province, Em Riem is a Cambodian 43 years-old artist who graduated from the Royal University of Fine Arts of Phnom Penh and the Higher National School of Decorative Arts of Paris, France. Em Riem’s art includes a wide range of materials and inspirations: from rattan designed sofas to abstract aluminium sculptures, painted portraits of Khmer Rouge’s victims or eclectic acrylic paintings of the countryside. Em Riem is also one of the most famous male fashion models in Cambodia, with a unique creative and personal style.

exhibition
"Inverted Sewer" by Meas Sokhorn @ Java Café & Gallery
 
event pic

After a quiet period of almost two years, Meas Sokhorn will exhibit a new series of paintings. Working on a background of alarming-red, Meas depicts figures on motorbikes, in cars and walking along the roads of Phnom Penh. The figures are not grounded to any fixed perspective and seem to be detached from the background—creating a loose and chaotic composition. It gives the impression that one could shake the canvas and the characters would float around and settle in new positions. But the artistic narrative unfolds in the details.

In the corner of one canvas are the words in English “LANE OWNER,” while horns emerge from the faces of pedestrians, a steering wheel and policeman caps. In another, a Chivas logo covers the road that cars drive over. The passengers carry bottles of alcohol and firearms. While another painting refers to the political rallies of the Cambodian General election of 2013.

Although the literal representation is largely traffic and alcohol, a secondary and subversive theme of class conflict and exploitation of power pervades the body of work. When discussing these themes with Meas, he refers to the congested roads of Phnom Penh as a “moving slum.” A metaphor that refers to the seeming lack of order and infrastructure despite the fact that there are rules and laws in place to govern the interactions. He says that the whole system is broken and no one is taking responsibility.

When asked why, as an artist, do you present this theme in your work, Meas replied that he has observed and been subjected to this growing problem and felt compelled to respond, “This is all I can do—I have my brush.” The stop-sign red background of the paintings serve as a warning of danger. A warning that he hopes will stimulate conversation and hopefully serve as a call to action.
