The Houston Film Critics Society will be hosting a double feature of two James Gandolfini comedies, "In the Loop" from 2009 and "Enough Said," the 2013 film that features the actor's final lead role. "Enough Said" will see release in Houston on Friday, September 27, at the Alamo Drafthouse Vintage Park location on Wednesday, September 25 starting at 7:30pm.
This gives individuals a chance to not only see a new film early, but also help out the HFCS as well as HFCS T-shirts will be sold at the event. The organization is currently raising money for its annual Houston Film Critics Awards show which covers the best (and worst) in film for the year. The awards show will again be held at The Museum of Fine Arts on Saturday, January 14, 2014 and will begin at 4pm.
The HFCS is a non-profit, unincorporated, and voluntary organization that unites critics from print, broadcast, and internet outlets that reside in the Greater Houston metropolitan area and that also meet its membership criteria. Purposes for the organization include:
- Encouraging the publication and broadcasting of critical commentary on film and cooperation among those regularly engaged in film criticism in the region.
- Increasing public awareness and appreciation for cinematic excellence.
- Recognizing extraordinary accomplishment in film through the selection of annual recipients of Houston Film Critics Awards and publicizing of those awards.
- Honoring both current and former distinguished members of the Association and their contributions to the Association's mission.
All of this information can be found on the organization's web site, which is currently under construction.
