"THE CORRIDOR" SCREENS WEDNESDAY
If you pay for a ticket to Wednesday night's screening of THE CORRIDOR, you will get to see two things: (1) a quality film made in the depths of the Nova Scotian wilderness, and (2) a very nervous Glen Matthews wandering around looking for free alcohol.
Watching myself on the big screen is certainly not one of my strong suits. That being said, I am literally dying to see this film (in retrospect, not literally). I put a lot into this film, and I have a strong belief in the story we told- I'm excited more than anything to get a chance to share it- especially with my peers in Halifax.
The Coast did a story on THE CORRIDOR's scribe, Josh MacDonald (who also wrote FAITH, FRAUD & MINIMUM WAGE in the festival), in it, a mini-review of THE CORRIDOR by Sean Flinn...
"The majority rules and sets your sanity level in a sense," says MacDonald.
Perhaps this is particularly true of male relationships. Is there an undercurrent of competition---the potential violation of principles, privacy and character, if not outright perpetration of violence---to all male groups, no matter how gentle and jovial they seem on the surface? The Corridor leads viewers to a confrontation with that question through careful pacing, claustrophobic scenes (the snowy exterior, the set-built interior), tension expertly built and released and some fine acting by the ensemble.
I've heard through the vine-o-grapes that tickets for the screening are soon going to be sold out, so pick 'em up! Wednesday, September 22nd, 7:00pm at Empire Theatres Park Lane on Spring Garden Road. To order online, visit http://atlantic.bside.com/
