I Spy with my little eye another week of great film at The Civic
Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster. Spy (rated 14A) turns the spy genre on its head by pushing aside the suave Bondesque convention for an unlikely woman of action, portrayed by McCarthy in top form. The summer’s best comedy with a 95% certified Fresh Rotten Tomatoes rating.
Oscar nominated Best foreign film Timbuktu finally finds it’s way to the Nelson screen, after many attempts, Thursday, July 2nd. Not far from the ancient Malian city of Timbuktu, now ruled by the religious fundamentalists, proud cattle herder Kidane (Ibrahim Ahmed aka Pino) lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife Satima (Toulou Kiki), his daughter Toya (Layla Walet Mohamed), and Issan (Mehdi Ag Mohamed), their twelve-year-old shepherd. In town, the people suffer, powerless, from the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists determined to control their faith. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. The women have become shadows but resist with dignity. Every day, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. Kidane and his family are being spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu. But their destiny changes abruptly in this stunningly rendered film from a master of world cinema. If you have yet to experience the quality of our Thursday night films, come and see this amazing film rated a staggering 99% Fresh Certification.
