Seasonal Special Happenings

Wild at Heart

When: Thu., May 8 2014

Reputedly the “weirdest” and “most entertaining” of the Chinese action-comedy actor-director superstar Stephen Chow’s oeuvre, the 2013 romp Journey to the West centers on rival demon hunters. They’re vying for similar romantic conquests and trying to save a village from pig demons and fish demons and dragon demons and all sorts of demons. With hyper-realistic special effects, barnyard makeup, and all your favorite Chinese screwball hi-jinx, this one’s a must see for the Asian cinema junkies out there and lovers of 16th century Chinese folklore, out from which this instant classic has sprung. It screens this evening at 6:45 and tomorrow at 9:20 p.m. at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Allard)
