Featured Film:

Jackie Chan at the SIFF Film Center

Apparently the first weekend SIFF played Police Story and Police Story 2 they were hits, because they’ve brought them back for another three days this weekend. With much of the calendar cleared this week for the Oscars (you can catch up with various nominees at a bunch of places around town), there isn’t a whole lot else of note out there. But the Chans are phenomenal, especially the first one, hands down his best film as a director. Catch them while you can. I reviewed them at the Notebook, and Ryan reviewed them here.
