SIFF 2007: Saturday Highlights

posted by on June 16 at 8:44 AM

What to see on the second-to-last day of the festival? The Stranger’s recommendations for every damn slot in America’s biggest film festival continue below and at

(SIFF has also just announced new shows for the excellent doc For the Bible Tells Me So and the mediocre local rom com Outsourced. SIFF Notes has been updated accordingly.)


Pacific Place, 11 am. Everybody loves Sons, a Norwegian film about an overzealous anti-pedophile.

SIFF Cinema, 1:30 pm. The last film in the Swashbuckler Saturdays series is Scaramouche. La France, avant la révolution! Starring lots of swords.

Egyptian, 4 pm. Josh warned you off Children of the War yesterday (but Lindy liked it!), and the Queen Latifah-narrated Arctic Tale is really too big for a film festival, so I’m going to steer you to Delirious, the Steve Buscemi vehicle about celebrity.

Egyptian, 7 pm. Assuming you missed out on tickets for the gala, why not stay for another round of Buscemi in Interview (which he also directed, from a scenario by murdered Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh)? Bradley Steinbacher liked it.

Egyptian, 9:30 pm. Stick it out at the Egyptian for the freaky kid horror film Joshua, which Andrew Wright adored. (Do not confuse with Kyle, which annoyingly plays in the same slot.)

Neptune, midnight. The replacement midnighter is End of the Line (on the SIFF Notes grid but not the Seattle Times guide; don’t be confused), which is a Canadian horror film set on a subway. Excellent.

Khadak is one of the best films that has played - and it plays again at LC at 1:30. It's slow and will be sleep-inducing for some, but it's so amazing I'm heading there for a second viewing. This is another one that's gotten lost in the shuffle. Meanwhile, crap like Outsourced is getting a third viewing? Don't embarrass us, siff.

That's an awfully harsh positive review for Interview.
