Little Joe is screening at the Seattle International Film Festival on Saturday, June 6 at SIFF Cinema at 7:15 pm and SIFF was kind enough to give us several pairs of tickets to readers. If you want to go, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org before 9am on Friday morning with "Little Joe" in the subject line. Dallesandro is expected to attend this screening along with director Nicole Haeusser.
Three of Nam's (Steven Cheung) friends have recently committed suicide, but that’s okay, since he can still see them now that they’re dead. In fact, Nam spends all his time either seeing dead people around his apartment building or trying to get the attention of the beautiful girl next door.
To me, the most inspiring homily was that though it can seem hopeless to try and attack an industry with such vast wealth and power, we did in fact succeed against the tobacco companies in many respects. Great point.
I was originally apprehensive about The Hurt Locker as I tend to avoid all things involving war (in order to also avoid emotional overload), but I am a Kathryn Bigelow fan, and boy howdy does that lady know how to make a film.
Sounds Like Teen Spirit is an irresistibly fun SIFF entry we weren't able to tell you about before all the Seattle screenings had happened.
Cloud 9 has a point: your grandparents (possibly) still have a libido. The film is about an elderly woman who rediscovers her sex drive and falls for a seventy-six year old man, who is not her husband of more than thirty years.
Ball Don't Lie screens Monday, June 1 at the Kirkland Performance Center at 9:30 pm and will be released theatrically on Friday, June 5 in limited release. He Got Game can be found in any video store.
Downloading Nancy is well-acted, especially with Maria Bello’s Nancy, who wonders aloud if anyone will care if someone emotionally dead really is physically, but the film is so over-the-top that you wonder who could enjoy sitting through this film. This film marks the most uncomfortable 100 minutes of SIFF yet.
The movie is so fast-paced that it never gets boring (that is, spending too much time dwelling on the characters) but has enough plot twists to keep you guessing what will happen next.
