"Whatever your favorite side to the limitlessly faceted David Bowie, this magnificently mind-bending film serves it up in a 140-minute career-spanning opus that races by in a snap of the fingers. It’s almost as extraordinary as the man himself.” —@PhildeSemlyen #TimeOut

“You really must see [Lena] Dunham’s film, which is her best yet… CATHERINE CALLED BIRDY is so good, so raucous and wild and wise and witty, that it not only makes me eager to write in alliterative adjectives, but to reconsider my views on everything else she’s made in recent years. It’s wonderful.” —katerbland @indiewire

CATHERINE CALLED BIRDY — #LenaDunham’s playful adaptation of Karen Cushman’s bestselling novel — opens this Fri, Sep 23 at the Belcourt (showtimes + tickets at link in bio, or bit.ly/CATHERINE-CALLED-BIRDY).

"PEARL isn’t just great; it retroactively makes its predecessor great, too. It’s a handsome and sad horror drama, with scenes and shots and performances that will make you wonder if you’re supposed to laugh, cry or shriek. Until you realize that the best part of this film is that you are absolutely supposed to do all three. And you probably will.” —@williambibbiani @thwrap

PEARL opens this Fri, Sep 16 at the Belcourt — and if you haven't seen X, we've added it on as a bonus feature immediately after Fri-Sat's 9pm PEARL screenings (no extra ticket needed). Showtimes and tickets at link in bio, or bit.ly/Belcourt-PEARL.

“Navigating the influx of adrenaline and oxytocin surging through these young women, all three actors are exquisite…. Corraling coming-of-age cliches into a pen and locking the gate, Haapasalo’s addition to the young adult canon is remarkably fresh, queer and a lovable account of adolescence.” —@em_maskell @lwlies
