  • Every weeknight at midnight - the CBC late movie. This is what hipped me to the Paramount package, the Universal Monsters, the Thin Man movies, and the films of Truffaut and Cassavetes. I got a crash course in film history at a very young age (fourteen) and I am grateful to whoever the anonymous employee was who made the curating decisions back then.

  • 飢えた侵略者(Les affames)【2017/カナダ】

    日本ではNetflixで配信となったカナダ製ゾンビ映画。原題の Les affames はフランス語で「空腹」や「飢え」の意。実に淡々としたゾンビ映画でアートピクチャー風。ケベック州の森林地帯を舞台に、男と女と幼い少女、二人の老婦と女、老人と少年、この3組8人がゾンビから逃れる道中に出会い、次々に襲われていくという単純なストーリーだが、登場人物にはヒーローも悪役もおらず、いたって普通の人々。役者も文芸映画に出てくるような人たちなのでリアリティがある。この映画のキモは「静寂」で、セリフやBGMを極力排し、風や虫の鳴き声といった情景音のみが聞こえる静けさの中、落ち葉や枝を踏む音、そしてゾンビの叫び声がビクっとするような恐怖を生み出す。

    登場するゾンビは腐乱状態のメイクが施されず〝ちょっと薄汚れた〟程度なので、近寄ったり話したりしてみないと判別できない。これもちょっと怖い。一応〝走るゾンビ〟なのだが、ボォ~とつっ立っているシーンも多く、こいつらが、椅子やガラクタを積み上げた塔のようなものに集まっている場面は何とも不思議な雰囲気。その謎解きもないまま終わるのだが、まぁ、移民問題やら現代文明への考察があるのだろう。よくわかりましぇ~ん!主人公グループは田舎から都会を目指して逃げるが生き残るのは一人。そして、都会から逃げてきたと思われる男と出会うのだが、もう逃げる場所はないのだろう。 淡々と逃げ、淡々と襲われる人間たちの姿にはどこか諦観が漂い、「まぁいいか、ゾンビに噛まれても…」という気分になる。

  • On Sunday, dozens of physically distanced Saint John residents gathered at the King’s Square cenotaph to pay their respects to those who fought and those who died in the Battle of Britain 80 years ago.

    “It’s hard to imagine it’s that long ago,” says master of ceremonies, Bev Harrison. “But the relevance of turning the tide of a war to save democracy occurred as a result of the bravery of those airmen.”

    The Battle of Britain was an aerial battle waged from July to October of 1940 and saw a small group of fighter pilots against a larger German Air Force. Among those fighters were more than 100 Canadians took part.

    “We had, serving in the Royal Air Force, at the time of the Battle of Britain there was actually 22 New Brunswickers, that I am aware of,” says Saint John historian, Harold E Wright. “Eight were fighter pilots, and of those eight, five of them were killed.”

    For some at the service, the anniversary hits close to home.

    Glendon Hamilton’s uncle, Flight Lieutenant Harry Raymond Hamilton, was killed in the Battle of Britain.

    “All the history has come out because my grandparents and father would not talk about it and what all the men did was actually amazing,” says Hamilton. “So it’s very well that they did what they did for us that are here now.”

    And it was nearly a decade ago that Michael Lewis learned of his own family connection to the battle. Pilot Officer Alec Albert Gray Trueman was his grandfather’s first cousin.

    “He joined in 1938, presumably to find some kind of adventure,” says Lewis. “We don’t really know what drove him to do that, and he ended up flying in the Battle of Britain as a fighter pilot – unfortunately, he was killed after less than a week.”

    Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of invited guests was restricted, and wreaths were already put in place. Additionally, there was also no parade or reception. However, a flypast of four helicopters from CFB Gagetown graced the ceremony – preserving the spirit of respect and remembrance.

    Meanwhile, Canada’s Veterans Affairs Minister Lawrence MacAuley and Minister of National Defence Harjit Sajjan released a joint statement on Sunday saying, in part, “we must always remember the sacrifices of those who step forward in the service of Canada and honour them for the commitment to the values we hold dear.”

  • An underwater search team has found the body of one of two 17-year-old boys who went missing when their boat capsized off Prince Edward Island last week.

    An RCMP spokesman says searchers recovered the body of Ethan Reilly at about 5:30 p.m. on Sunday.

    Sgt. Neil Logan says they made the discovery near Fox Island – the same area they’d been searching for several days.

    He says the team is still searching for a second boy, identified as Alex Hutchinson, who disappeared when the boat overturned on Wednesday.

    The Maritime Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Halifax, which was initially handling the case, has said three people were in the boat when it capsized near Northport, on the western end of P.E.I.

    The centre has said one boy made it back to shore, while a massive search involving military aircraft and coast guard vessels began for the other two.

    This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 20, 2020.
