The Top! Few guys made it!

 

Is there anything as seemingly futile as making a great Canadian movie that hardly anyone has seen, thanks to criminally lousy distribution? How about writing a comprehensive history and analysis of one of those films? But Jonathan Ball, film academic (and author of Uptown's own Haiku Horoscopes), takes the shot anyway and scores with his insightful book on John Paizs's 1985 made-in-Winnipeg classic Crime Wave. The book launch accompanies a free screening of Crime Wave at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28, at Cinematheque with both Ball and Paizs in attendance, with bonus screenings of Paizs's great short films The Obsession of Billy Botski and Springtime in Greenland.

Nothing rotten in the state of Denmark

 

First came AMC's The Killing. Then came FX's The Bridge. It seems American TV producers have developed quite a taste for Danish television series that can be acquired and remade for U.S. audiences. Next up is Those Who Kill, a popular Danish cop drama that has been reworked by A&E and will debut on Monday, March 3, at 9 p.m. (right after the second-season première of Bates Motel). The U.S. version stars Chlo´ Sevigny (right) as a homicide detective who specializes in serial-killer cases and who, coincidentally, has a stepfather who is suspected of being a serial killer. James D'Arcy co-stars as a forensic psychologist who offers his expertise to her investigative efforts.

Seasons greetings

 

The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre will unveil its 2014-15 season Friday, Feb. 28, kicking off a string of announcements by local companies in coming weeks outlining what Winnipeggers will be seeing on our stages starting next fall. The only title we can be sure of being announced by RMTC artistic director Steven Schipper is a classic from the pen of No´l Coward (right), who has already been chosen as the subject of the 2015 Master Playwright Festival next January.

Young revs up for second book

 

He took his anti-oilsands message across Canada, and now iconic rocker Neil Young is busy penning a book... about cars. Young, an lifelong automobile enthusiast, will follow up the 2012 memoir Waging Heavy Peace with a yet-to-be-titled volume on the cars he's owned and the stories that go with them, to be released in the fall. Rest assured, the environmental repercussion of classic cars isn't lost on Young; a statement from publisher Blue Rider Press says Young will "also discuss his dedication to clean energy and his recent awareness of the environmental impact the emissions of his past cars had on the environment."
