Chinese Portraits and Ghosts at the Beacon

This weekend is Lunar New Year, but because of the coronavirus outbreak in China, two of the week’s biggest releases were cancelled at the last minute. We hope to see detective Chinatown 3 and Dante Lam’s The Rescue sometime soon, but in the meantime, the Beacon has got us covered for our Lunar New Year needs. Saturday night, they’re playing Ching Siu-tung and Tsui Hark’s seminal 1987 fantasy wuxia A Chinese Ghost Story, with Leslie Cheung and Joey Wong. It’s a story from Strange Tales from a Chinese Studio, done in the style of Evil Dead 2. And Friday through Sunday, they have the local premiere of Wang Xiaoshuai’s fascinating experimental documentary Chinese Portrait. Also at the Beacon this week, our friends at the Suspense is Killing Us podcast are presenting Brian de Palma’s Blow Out Tuesday night.
