If It’s Friday, It Must Be Seattle
We’ve been in Seattle for about a day and a half so far. I’ve seen 2 movies, attended a filmmaker dinner, dropped by the Gay La, and enjoyed an evening of tribute to a game Sissy Spacek, hosted by Richard Corliss… all in between Twitter fighting over whether “Film Critics” are assholes, heroes, or something in between. Not much news going on out there. Disney still believes in windows… kinda. Prometheus kicks ass, no matter how much nitpicking.
Seattle is wet and a bit cool and gray… which is still lovely, in a northwestern kinda way.
I do love it up here. It’s a sane and loving festival. Terrific fest staff. Tremendous host hotel. And great restaurants. Add Billy Friedkin, some K Fried C, and mix.
