In Carl Bessai’s spoof 1974 Canuxploitation pic, "Frank Lo Zito" stars as Detective Franky New Guinea. "Mans Asbornder" is his intense new partner, Detective Reverend Grizzly Night-Bear, and "Lester Holloway" is Vancouver’s, uh, Bad City’s corrupt new mayor, Dominic Kincaid. In other words, Bessai is throwing self-parody on top of parody; a Royale with cheese if you will. Served best with cold beer!

Are 4 wheels better than 2? Director Fredrik Gertten (Big Boys Gone Bananas!*) investigates the daily drama of traffic worldwide and the bicycle as a tool for change. Travelling from São Paulo, Los Angeles and Toronto, where cyclists fight daily for their right to the road, to Copenhagen, where forty percent of the population commutes by bike, Gertten meets activists and thinkers who are working for revolutionary changes. Bikes vs Cars is an intimate and powerful look at how to move away from car-centric models and toward livable cities.
