The S.F. Silent Film Festival Returns

By Chris Narloch

The 23rd San Francisco Silent Film Festival returns for 2018 to the beautiful Castro Theatre, this May 30–June 3 for five incredible days of classic cinema, with masterpieces from the silent film era set to glorious live music.

Exclusive screenings include Greta Garbo’s first starring role in the rare 1924 Swedish film “The Saga of Gosta Berling,” the great Buster Keaton as a weakling-turned-prizefighter in the 1926 boxing comedy “Battling Butler,” plus directorial efforts by such masters of the silent era as Carl Dreyer, Yasujiro Ozu, Ernst Lubitsch, and Paul Leni.

See A Movie This Weekend!

By Chris Narloch
There is something for every taste playing at local movie theaters this weekend, including “The Rock” on a rampage, pandas in the wild, and a tribute to computer gamers and gaming.

If you haven’t seen it, “A Quiet Place” is the must-see horror hit that made more than $50 million its first weekend in the U.S. alone -- the best opening ever for a horror movie that isn’t a remake or a sequel.

Believe it or not, there are other movies currently playing in theaters as well, although you wouldn’t know it, given the enormous hype around those two blockbusters. Read on for my latest film reviews.

With the 90th Academy Awards airing on ABC this Sunday evening, March 4, now is the perfect time to put the spotlight on a trio of Oscar-caliber films that were recently released on DVD (or will be available for home viewing very shortly).

Sacramento’s hometown hit “Lady Bird,” which is nominated in five categories at this year’s Oscars, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray this coming Tuesday, the same day that “Faces Places,” one of my other favorite Oscar-nominated films from 2017, comes home on DVD.
