Jar City is on my top list, and Brick Lane was a great movie that grows even more after you've seen it.

Otto sounds fun, nothing like a midnite upbeat zombie movie to put life in perspective.

The Great Buck Howard looks very fun - but it should be in theaters later if you miss it.

Oh, and La France ... just barely escaped getting 1 out of 5 from five people I know - I gave it a 2 for a few scenes that kept me and others from walking out part way thru the movie.

Captain Abu Raed - is that coming back? It's a 5 out of 5 for a bunch of people I know.

Saturday has The Drummer, Half-Life (editor and co-producer at screening), Late Bloomers, Timecrimes and ... MIDNITE is Sukiyaki Western Django! way to end the day!

Captain Abu Raed doesn't have U.S. distribution at present, but it seems like a natural for Seattle's only film distributor, Typecast Films, which specializes in films from and about the Arab world. You might try emailing them at and let them know you'd like to see it in theaters.
