EVENT: The 93rd Academy Awards
It’s Hollywood’s big night, though this year’s event will be paired more than ever. It was an unusual year for movie fans as almost all theaters across the country were closed due to the pandemic. The Bay Area PIXAR team has an Oscar or two in the animation categories. Go PIXAR.
FILM: THE FATHER
“The Father” may be the first dementia film that hits my core. Terrifying and uncomfortable, he’s showing Anthony Hopkins at his disturbing, unraveling best. At first glance, a simple, uncomfortably familiar tale about the heart-wrenching mental decline of a beloved parent in this first feature film by French playwright Florian Zeller plays so cleverly with the perspective that it is impossible to maintain any kind of emotional distance.
Oscar-nominated Anthony Hopkins is brilliant as the waning father (Anthony) who becomes more disobedient and his dementia deepens as the story progresses. This is one of the best movie screenings of the year. See the trailer here. The movie is now being streamed.

MUSIC FILM: SPEAKERS
Saturday 9 p.m.
Run, run, run to the drive-in this Saturday to see a special STOP MAKING SENSE demonstration. Local live bands will also perform at the event, which is being produced by Roxie Theater & Fast Times. Jonathan Demme’s groundbreaking Talking Heads film, considered by many the greatest concert film of all time, filmed in three live shows in LA in 1980, is acoustically exuberant and visually stunning. Who can forget David Byrne’s oversized suit or his dance with a floor lamp? The music film shows the hits “Psycho Killer”, “Burning Down the House”, “Bring me to the river” and much more. Watch the movie Saturday at 9 p.m. and ride in style in your vehicle around Fort Mason. San Francisco.
MUST SEE TV: THE NEVER
The year is 1896. Victorian London is shaken by a supernatural event that has given certain people – mostly women – abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing. But regardless of its particular “twists”, everyone belonging to this new subclass is in great danger. It’s up to the mysterious widow Amalia True (Laura Donnelly) and the brilliant young inventor Penance Adair (Ann Skelly) to guard and protect these gifted “orphans”. To do this, they must face the brutal forces determined to destroy their species.
