SIFF is for lovers

Posted by on May 4 at 11:33 AM

I would like to state for the record that it is b-a-d-a-s-s of the Seattle International Film Festival to open this year’s festival with a film by the localesque Miranda July. I haven’t always been convinced by MJ’s work in the past, but I believe she has interesting ideas and is full of really impressive energy and ambition. The one conversation I ever had with her, in the green room of the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, left me convinced that she was on the verge of utter brilliance. I’m excited to see the movie, but in the meantime, I’m happy to visit her blog.
