The Killing of a Chinese Bookie this Sunday.

If you fancy a movie this weekend come out to the Alamo Ritz on Sunday, where I will be presenting one of my all time favorite films: THE KILLING OF A CHINESE BOOKIE. I’m this week’s guest as part of their great Cinema Club series where local Austin film community members present a favorite classic film. For me BOOKIE is an incredibly moving look at the artist in a harsh world, told through the story of a small-time club owner with a gambling problem. Brilliant performances and pitch perfect structure combine to make this a truly powerful film.

Hope to see you there!
