SIFF 2008: Day 10 Recommendations

posted by on May 31 at 7:50 AM

A pretty solid day, I’d say.

In the morning slot, I’ve been hearing only good things about the Swedish vampire flick Let the Right One In (11 am at the Uptown). If you’re already seen it, try the weird but wonderful Ploy (11 am at Pacific Place), or the high-school doc American Teen (11 am at the Egyptian).

Next, it’s all about the Oscar-nominated Katyn (1:30 pm at the Egyptian).

In the late afternoon slot, we like the local burlesque doc A Wink and a Smile (4 pm at the Egyptian). (Word has it that my review of this play is the source of the nom-de-va-va-voom Waxie Moon. Perfect, because I pretty much despise neo-burlesque.)

Next up is your chance to see Werner Herzog’s Encounters at the End of the World (7 pm at Uptown) ahead of its brief stint at the Varsity in July.

The following slot is a little tough—you might consider getting dinner. We haven’t seen TBS (Nothing to Lose) (9:30 pm at Pacific Place), though, and it’s getting some decent reviews. It’s a fear-mongering Dutch thriller about an escapee from a psychiatric hospital meant to rehabilitate criminals.

And the midnight tonight is Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone (Egyptian). You probably already know whether you’re interested or not.


Also: Anybody want to buy a Platinum Pass to the rest of the festival? Tika (contact her directly at tikab1[at]gmail) is selling two for $400 each.

I HIGHLY recommend 'Let The Right One In'! I went in to it not knowing really what to expect...just that it was about vampires. In the end, I was hugely surprised by how good this movie is! Go see it!!!!!

Seconded on Let the Right One In, one of the better films at SIFF so far.
