For Dinner and a Doc next Saturday, which is February 13th, we will be screening Lost in La Mancha by Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe, a film that follows Terry Gilliam during his first attempt to make The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. It provides interesting insight into Gilliam as a director, and it also draws some nice parallels between the story of Don Quxote and the film making process.
For those who are interested in a little more information, there is the official trailer, an interview with the directors by Rebecca Murray, and a review of the film by Stephanie Zacharek at Salon.com.
The soup that night will be Butternut Squash Soup with Brown Butter, which is a Thomas Keller creation with a few modifications.
As usual, the event will be at my place, 130 Dublin Street, Guelph, and all are welcome, though please email or leave a comment to let me know that you will be coming. We will eat at about 5:30 and begin the film at about 6:00.
Also, here are some of the upcoming films we will be showing:
