Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
THE LAST DAYS
LOS ÚLTIMOS DÍAS
Dir: David Pastor, Àlex Pastor
As in their 2009 film CARRIERS, writer-directors David and Àlex Pastor drop viewers into a desperate, plague-stricken world. Here the epidemic is a fatal form of agoraphobia, and as what’s left of humanity hunkers down inside buildings, computer programmer Marc (Quim Gutiérrez) attempts to reach girlfriend Julia (Marta Etura) through the subways and tunnels of Barcelona. With award-winning Spanish star José Coronado. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Julián (Álex González) and his best friend are members of a neo-Nazi group led by the fanatical Solís (Javier Bardem). While training in a gym, Julián finds a more benevolent mentor in ex-boxer Carlomonte (Carlos Bardem, who wrote the novel on which the film was based), as well as a new girlfriend, Alyssa (Judith Diakhate). Under their influence, Julián tries to begin a new life - but Solis and his gang have other plans. In Spanish with English subtitles.

Equally funny and frightening, TRICK ‘R TREAT captures the spirit of Halloween through four intertwined stories set on the same block. Horny virgins, homicidal school principals, crotchety old men, nosy kids, and a sack-hooded hellraiser named Sam rub shoulders on All Hallows Eve, occasionally running afoul of the night’s traditions. This loving homage to such anthologies as TALES FROM THE CRYPT boasts superb production values and a solid cast including Anna Paquin, Brian Cox and Dylan Baker.
