Bridge on the River Kwai

by Moe - 0 Comment(s)

If you took my recommendation and saw Ben Hur at the theatres back in November when it was re released in digital, you know how amazing these epics look on the big sceen.

So try not to miss The Bridge on the River Kwai which is playing at Crowfoot and Scotia Centre on Wed Jan 11 at 7:00. Winner of 7 Academy Awards in 1957 including Best Actor- Alex Guiness, Best Director- David Lean, Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing, Best Musical Score, Best Writing, and of course you couldn't win all of these and not win Best Picture.

This is on every 'best list' you can imagine (including my own) and has been for over 50 years. It is a magnificent movie- self sacrifice, madness, obsession, heroism. Oh man I love this movie and although I have seen it 40 plus times (that's another list of mine it is on- movies I have seen more than 25 times!) I have not yet seen it on the big screen. I know what I am doing on Wed the 11th.
