Next month I'm attending the 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival, which has a lineup this year of over 200 films. Earlier today I RSVP'd for the ten movies I'm attending:
Sunday, June 20
The Tillman Story (dir: Amir Bar-Lev) - 1:30pm
Lebanon (dir: Samuel Moaz) - 4:30pm
Ain't in It for My Health: A Film About Levon Helm (dir: Jacob Hatley) - 7:00pm
Monday, June 21
Tiny Furniture (dir: Lena Dunham) - 10:00pm
Due to a scheduling overlap with the CALI Conference for Law School Computing in New Jersey, I'm only attending the first five days of the festival. This means I'll miss several other movies I'd hope to catch, including "Centurion" (dir: Neil Marshall), "Four Lions" (dir: Christopher Morris), "Freakonomics" (dir: Heidi Ewing, Alex Gibney, Seth Gordon, Rachel Grady, Eugene Jarecki, Morgan Spurlock), "Kings of Pastry" (dir: Chris Hegedus, D.A. Pennebaker), "Monsters" (dir: Gareth Edwards) and the 25th anniversary screening of "Pee Wee's Big Adventure." In addition, my pass won't get me into the opening night screening of Lisa Cholodenko's "The Kids Are All Right." Since that would've cost me about $350 more, I'm okay with that. I'll happily wait a few weeks and see it for $12.
