The annual Philadelphia Film Festival is underway. I have tickets to see eight movies between now and next Saturday!
- Super Size Me: Could be very biased or very informative or both.
- Everyday People: A day in the life of a failing Jewish-owned Brooklyn diner.
- The Cordon: Drama about 1997’s anti-Milosevic demonstrations.
- The Story of the Weeping Camel: A baby camel is rejected by its mother; a nomadic Mongolian family attempts to save it. The tears are welling up already.
- Orwell Rolls in his Grave: Documentary about big corporate media.
- The City That Shoves You Back: Six short films about the best and worst of Philly.
- The Kite: A love story set on the Israeli-Lebanese border.
- Hair High: Bill Plympton’s animated gothic-high-school comedy. Matt Groening and Don Hertzfeldt are involved. Yaaaaay!
