Next Screening Fri July 2: MIC MACS

Directed by Jean-Pierret Jeunet (Amelie) David Stratton says: "It's got a very good plot, a strong plot, a sort of almost Frank Capra like story about the underdogs who take over the big arms dealers and overcome them. It's stuff with visual invention. It's got so many great visual ideas.
"I'm one of the few people that have admired Jeunet's films from a distance but found them hard to access emotionally. And this is full of his idiosyncratic visuals, crazy characters - literally outsiders in the Parisian community. But there was real joy in this film, and fun. It is constantly entertaining, narratively more cohesive than many of his films, and naively politically palatable."
Margaret loved it and called it "cheeky".

A terrific night was had at Gerringong Town Hall on Sat June 4 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Picks and Flicks.
The full hall really enjoyed the rollicking road flic, Bran Nue Dae (Going Home Never Felt so Good!).
Champage and chocolate cake followed and local coffee roaster John Svinos donated his time and machine to serve some of his award winning Daily Grind coffe - thanks for your time and terrific brew John. (Buy some Daily Grind at the Gerringong Deli!)
PICKS AND FLICKS SHOWS FILMS ON THE FIRST FRIDAY OF EACH MONTH FROM 7.30PM
