morbane
Hey, I am listing the movies I'd like to see in this year's Film Festival. If you're keen (and "you" means any local reader), let me know.

Friday 27 July.
Caesar Must Die. 6:30pm, Paramount. See alternate time below. A documentary that verges on drama - literally - and deals with stagings of Shakespeare in prison.

Saturday 28 July.
Farewell, My Queen. 3:45pm, Embassy. See alternate time below. The fall of Marie Antoinette from the perspective of lesser courtiers; shot at Versailles.
CRAZY HORSE. 6:00pm, Penthouse. See alternate time below. Backstage at a prestigious Paris nightclub, covering rehearsals. More technical than titillating, apparently.

Sunday 29 July.
The Flight of the Airship Norge over the Arctic Ocean. 4:00pm, Soundings Theatre. I have booked this one already. Archival silent film of a daring journey, accompanied by piano.
In Darkness. 7:00pm, Penthouse. See alternate time below. World War II film set in Lvov, Poland. Should be depressing/fascinating/clear-eyed?

Monday 30 July.
In Darkness. 8:30pm, Penthouse. See alternate time above. World War II film set in Lvov, Poland. Should be depressing/fascinating/clear-eyed?
CRAZY HORSE. 8:45pm, Embassy. See alternate time above. Backstage at a prestigious Paris nightclub, covering rehearsals. More technical than titillating, apparently.

Tuesday 31 July.
The Cabin in the Woods. 4:15pm, Embassy. Will have to book on the day - and arrange to leave work early. Joss Whedon horror-subversion. Those who see it at the screening on Friday prior, please don't spoil me…
Farewell, My Queen. 6:15pm, Penthouse. See alternate time above. The fall of Marie Antoinette from the perspective of lesser courtiers; shot at Versailles.

Wednesday 8 August
Grandma Lo-fi: The Basement Tapes of Sigrídur Níelsdóttir. 12:15pm, City Gallery. (AKA Sara-will-have-to-wrangle-a-really-long-lunch-break.) Portrait of a "legendary little old lady of Icelandic music". Sounds fun.

There are also some films/sessions that I'd really like to see, but cannot, due to schedule conflicts. They are The Minister, Platige Image, Where Do We Go Now?, and Shock Head Soul. If you go to see them, please let me know how they were!
