SIFF SIFF 2007: Sat Highlights
posted by June 9 at 9:34 AMon
Dude, I just saw Sharkwater, and one thing Jen Graves neglected to mention is that its director and rather puny, adorable primary subject has an abiding aversion to clothes.
This is Rob Stewart “free diving,” a technique that relies on the intake of a single solitary breath and, conveniently enough, requires no cumbersome equipment. Just a Speedo.
Anyway, sharks are dying! Don’t eat shark fin soup! Sharkwater plays again Sunday at 11 am. The puny adorable one should be inattendance.
Now for today’s picks.
SATURDAY JUNE 9
Egyptian, 11 am. In his guise as a Lacanian intellectual, Slavoj Zizek can be a bit of a hack. But below this sinister exterior lurks a genius film critic. Watch A Pervert’s Guide to Cinema and learn.
Harvard Exit, 1:30 pm. Lindy West was horrified by Soldiers of Conscience, a fascinating look at the psychological training for modern warfare.
Late afternoon. Take a break, unless you like idealistic anticolonialism movies from the ’70s.
Egyptian, 7 pm. The Boss of It All: the movie that plunged Lars von Trier into a deep and debilitating depression. It’s funny!
Harvard Exit, 9:15 pm. Charles recommends Northern Light.
Neptune, midnight. SXSW horror favorite The Signal.
