Comic Book Movies @ GOMA
I didn't know about it until just this morning, but GOMA Cinematheque has been running a comic-book-movies program for most of January! The selection of movies is amazing, and the program runs until March so there is still plenty of opportunity to see a cool film.
The program features the usual Hollywood suspects - Sin City, Iron Man, Watchmen - but also Asian classics like Akira and Ghost in the Shell, and far more obscure works like L'Ultimo Terrestre and The Storm Riders. New Zealand's Footrot Flats gets a screening (I remember watching that when I was a kid!) and so does Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, which I've been really keen to see!
