SIFF 2010

The 36th Seattle International Film Festival concluded a record-breaking year on Sunday June 13th, in spite of the downturn in summer movie-going nationwide, with the announcement of juried SIFF 2010 …
When the last day of SIFF arrives, it is a cross between a mad scramble to use up vouchers and see as many films as possible (in the past, I've seen up to four movies on the last day), or relaxing, ca…
The marathon is coming to an end. When I call SIFF an endurance sport, I'm only half-kidding. Seriously. At three-and-a-half weeks long, the festival goes on forever... long enough for me to fall into…
Stephin Merritt of the alt-pop band The Magnetic Fields is one of those musical characters that you either love, or you have simply never heard of him. I adore Magnetic Fields, so I was thrilled to he…
Whoah. I knew it would all catch up to me. After taking a week off from work (i.e. My Real Job) to go to SIFF last week, I was out late Friday night for a couple of movies, then left early on Saturday…

The hot Friday night ticket was the recent Sundance winner (Grand Jury Prize-Narrative) Winter's Bone, so I decided to catch the film right before it, since I was right there in the 'hood. The Owls (…
After my first-night fiasco of standing in sludgy ticket lines and losing tickets (dang!!!), I vowed to go straight home and sort out at least *some* of my schedule, ordering a bunch of my "for sure" …
