SIFF...

And, we met up with Gordon and Tessa last night and got the first round of tickets for The Seattle International Film Festival.

Our first picks:
--The Secret Festival Tickets to 4 movies. You don't know what they'll be. You sign an oath not to tell anyone who isn't a Secret Festival member what you saw. Sometimes these are incredible movies that you can't see anywhere else...sometimes, a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend "just happens" to have access to a movie that otherwise is inaccessible....or a sneak world premiere, or something classic and hard to find. Usually totally worth the money and time spent.
--Animatrix. I think this will sell out quickly, especially with Matrix Reloaded opening 5/15.
--Bubba Ho-tep Who doesn't want to see Bruce Campbell as an aging Elvis?

I'm sure there'll be more. There's a documentary about Kurt Vonnegut, lots of Hong-Kong Action Movies, and the usual assortment of Italian/French coming of age movies...

Re: Animatrix
Oh believe me, I'm going to be at the box office early on Sunday to try for that showing. I've downloaded the 4 segments they've put up on the website and they are incredible!

I'd love to see Bubba too but midnight showings... oy! A bitch on the metro *heh*
