The Canned In Film Festival: Day Two

Day Two: 20 March 2020

Oliver! (U) 1968 Just the most fabulous of all British musicals, with Lionel Bart’s lyrics capturing the spirit of Dickens and London. Plus, this is a time when no one should be asking for “More”. Amazon

Shanghai Noon (12) 2000 Ridiculously entertaining combo of Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson and the rather unique marital arts comedy western. Honestly, it’s much more fun than it has any right to be, and Chan is lovely in it. Netflix

Sideways (15) 2005 Sparkling wine comedy about two old friends on a trip through wine country in California, with superbly downbeat performances from Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church delivering perfectly on the laughs and the tears in Alexander Payne’s Oscar-winning screenplay. Google Play, Amazon Prime.
