Cinequest Day 2

So, everyone like the sheep movie? Not, according to Alejandro Adams, and we’ll be interested to hear protests and outrage from other than PETA activists, thanks.

Today, we have an array of 16 films, which, if nimbly arranged can provide four to five movies in a day’s watching. I thought I saw everything this year, but today I only saw one of them (the indifferent if pretty Camembert Rose, which was a little too square for me; and naturally the translations don’t carry the flavor of the original Hungarian, in which I am absolutely fluent in every way, isn’t everyone?). However I did an interview on the premiering (at 7pm at the California Theatre) Silicon Valley documentary The Real Revolutionaries (read the interview here).

A strong lineup to start the day off. I like looking for Charlie Cockey’s picks because he’s been around the block.
Now: 1pm we’ve got Road to Sangam: pretty good Indian fictional film about the hauling of Gandhi’s ashes. 1:30 at Camera 12 is Cooking History, recommended by Cockey his own self; a study of how armies march on their stomachs. 2:15 is Bank Robbery from Estonia, also a Cockey pick.

Another highlight would seem to be Green Waters (above; 4-5:30) one of the faves of the Metro staff–an elliptical Argentine comedy of paranoia. Or you could just take in 3 solid hours of shorts at the Camera 3 in two installments. Everyone will tell you it’s as hard to make a bad movie as it is to make a good one (to say nothing about the hardness of watching a bad one). But it’s harder to make a short movie bad.

So, also, an advance word on a CreatTV reception Sat night, Feb 27, 6:30-8:30; CreaTV’s studios in downtown SJ, a chance for local filmmakers to hobnob without the music blasting. The catch is that it’s limited to 75 people and you need to RSVP to by Friday, February 26 at 12 noon.

Visine is available at the Wallgreen’s at the corner of S. First and Santa Clara. As always, we recommend Cinebar on San Fernando as a refuge from too much networking; there, there are no people who will comment about your incipient alcoholism when you’re soothing your jet-lagged nerves with a beer at 3pm.

Out of towners, you want to see something cool? Check out the view from the 7th floor of the Martin Luther King library, 150 E. San Fernando at 4th. A quick elevator ride up: very supervillain/hero/last scene confrontation.  We’re quite proud of our library, actually.

There is a certain quantity of time in which the bank will take payments every now and then. If you are also deep in the hole, they may commonly demand that you pay the actual payment completely. However, i am not saying that they will have any sort of payments at all. Should you and the standard bank can find a way to work anything out, the foreclosure practice may end.
