LOTTE REINIGER Made silhouette-style animated films in the 1920s.
Live musical accompaniment to silent films! Musical duo Miles and Karina provide the musical backdrop to The Sound of Silents series at SIFF Cinema. The next screening is a Sunday program of Lotte Reiniger’s short silhouette style animated films from the 1920s—they're impressive and intricately designed. The third film in the series is our Stranger Suggests event for Tuesday—read more about it here.
Kelly O, aka Kelly "Riverdance" O'Neil, is going to buy the biggest slab of corned beef she can afford from Market House Corned Beef on Howell Street (next the Re-Bar). She's going to cook it, eat it, and raise a glass of Bushmills to all the O'Neil's (even the ones with two L's). Slàinte, motherfuckers!
GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL Peculiar.
The big movie event this weekend is the release of Wes Anderson’s newest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. It's playing at two multiplexes, but Guild 45th in Wallingford is probably the most charming place to see it. Say what you will about his visual aesthetic—some think he's too indulgent, or that his movies are too precious—but he's a talented director creating work that is uniquely his own and he has a peculiar cinematic DNA that I love to experience.
Danielle Henderson is going to eat a plate of bacon at Mecca, then get stoned and go to the top of the Space Needle for the first time.
Kyle Fleck is thinking about eating some steak frites at that Red Cow place that just opened up near his house.
Paul Constant is going to make a boiled dinner with corned beef and potatoes and cabbage and the works! Then he's going to read a lot of books. "I'm planning on finishing The Snowden Files by Luke Harding, but I haven't planned what else I'm going to dive into."
