My IFFB plan of attack for this evening...
THE TROLL HUNTER @Brattle
THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM @Somerville
I originally had THE TRIP, the UK restaurant reviewer road trip comedy, as my first movie of the evening, but I'm betting that that arrives at the Kendall soon enough, so I'm gonna give the indie flick from a new director some love instead and see GREEN.
That 9:30 slot has been a tough one to call. I've been flip-flopping on it in my head repeatedly for the past week. SUBMARINE has been a festival darling and really does give off a promising twisted RUSHMORE vibe. The theater-hopping (Brattle to Somerville) x timing (17 minutes if everything runs on time, and nothing does, plus Q&A) logistics are tricky, but I'm right this minute planning on...
TROLL HUNTER! For several reasons. First, TROLLS! Second, the opportunity to see it with a good crowd in a theater. Third, the filmmakers will be present for Q&A. And fourth, TROLLS!
CATACLYSM, well, it looks deep fried and heavy on the inappropriate (I couldn't find a trailer for it online so check out the IFFB write-up). What's not to like there? =)
Here's what the festival planners are pushing today at the Somerville and Brattle theaters.
Looking ahead to the weekend (movies in parens are maybes)...
(SHORTS 5: DOCS 2 @Somerville)
HOW TO DIE IN OREGON @Somerville
SHORTS 1: NARRATIVES 1 @Somerville
THE FUTURE @Brattle
STAKE LAND @Somerville
(CRIME AFTER CRIME @Brattle)
BOBBY FISCHER AGAINST THE WORLD @Somerville
13 ASSASSINS @Brattle
If you're at all interested in checking out a film, you should give the schedule a look and not depend solely on my wonky tastes. Get your ticket/s and get in touch if you wanna meet up for a flick or compare notes between flicks. Also, feel free to talk me into something I haven't got listed above! =)
If you make it to a movie in Davis over the weekend you can mixx in visits to Somerville open studios...
And if you hit the Brattle on Sunday you can take a break between movies at the Mayfair in Harvard Square!
Keep on keepin on~
