Among the films opening on July 7 we begin with Spider-Man: Homecoming, which receives an enthusiastic review, followed by: the WWII romantic thriller The Exception, with Christopher Plummer and Eddie Marsan; The Journey, a drama about a key moment meant to end the Irish Troubles, with Timothy Spall and Colm Meaney (both at the Living Room); The Little Hours, a comedy based on a story in the Decameron, with Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and John C. Reilly, at the Cinema 21; the start of a David Lynch retrospective at the NWFC, with Eraserhead and a program of shorts, plus Jacques Tati’s M. Hulot’s Holiday, which influenced Lynch; the excellent documentary 24 Hour Comic, which covers a comic book marathon in which eight artists each create a book in in day, sitting in a popular comic book shop; and a revival of Kansas City Confidential, a quintessential film noir (both at the Kiggins in Vancouver).
