Twister

twisterStarring future Academy Award winner Helen Hunt, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman mesmerizes! I haven't seen this film in a long time, I wonder how the CGI tornadoes and the flying cow hold up? (at Maine Mall Cinema; also May 19)

About The Director

Jan DeBont was a Dutch director of photography (DP) with a long and prolific career in Europe and in America who parlayed his work on two huge action blockbusters in a row (Die Hard and The Hunt for Red October) into a brief feature directing career. He had a huge hit with his debut Speed in 1994, followed by Twister, Speed 2, a misbegotten remake of The Haunting, and finally the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider sequel The Cradle Of Life. Based on his IMDb profile he may be retired.
