2015 Favorites Return

With awards season finally behind us (for a few weeks at least), some of the best films of the past year have been returning for short engagements at area theatres. Johnnie To’s Office played one night at the Uptown a couple of weeks ago and features this weekend at the Issaquah International Film Festival. Guy Maddin’s The Forbidden Room, one of our favorite films of the year, a nesting doll of lunacy that ranks as possibly Maddin’s funniest and weirdest film, is back on Monday at the SIFF Uptown. Laurie Anderson’s heartbreaking memory film on life, death and a beloved pet Heart of a Dog plays Tuesday only at the Grand Cinema in Tacoma. And on Wednesday, Scarecrow Video’s Screening Room presents Alex Garland’s Ex Machina, starring freshly minted Oscar winner Alicia Vikander as a scheming robot built by Oscar Isaac.
