Shotgun Stories was pretty amazing. It definitely had that david gordon green vibe going on. On the downside, the showing was sparsely attended (it plays again on Weds at 4:30). On the plus side, the writer/director had a great low-key Q&A afterwards. Apparently this one doesn't have distribution yet. I say go see it.
I second the recommendation for Parting Shot. Unfortunately, there was only one SIFF screening, so here's hoping it returns to Seattle post-fest. Le Besco is great, and so is her young co-star, Steven De Almeida. I'm certain I've seen him before, but I can't place where. The IMDb lists Parting Shot as his only credit, but I know that isn't correct...
Whoops, I forgot the "A" in A Parting Shot. Then again, the French titleóPas Douceómeans "not tender," "not gentle," or something like that.
