Double Feature with ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE (3:45, 9:15)

SNOWPIERCER (2013) dir Bong Joon-ho w/Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Ko Asung, John Hurt, Ed Harris [126 min; DCP]
Swinton’s turn as the Margaret-Thatcher-esque enforcer on a post-apocalyptic, ever-circling train from hell is the perfect foil for Chris Evans understated rebel in Bong Joon-ho’s remarkable sci-fi film.

“There’s a righteous savagery to this movie that’s almost but not quite obscured by the lushness of its imagined world.” – Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

“[It] seems to have been sent back to us from some distant alternate future where grandiose summer action movies can also be lovingly crafted, thematically ambitious works of art.” – Dana Stevens, Slate

“Planetary destruction and human extinction happen a half-dozen times every summer. It’s rarely this refreshing, though.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times
