    San Francisco International Film Festival 55: 'Abramovic,' 'Neighboring Sounds,' and Kenneth Branagh

    Kind of a light Festival day: viewed a DVD that I loved, saw a new movie onscreen that was a first feature and reminded me why we go to film festivals, went to a cocktail party that didn’t feel like one, and attended Kenneth Branagh’s tribute for the Founder’s Directing Award. First up, the DVD: ...

    SFIFF 55: Judy Davis, 'Women with Cows,' "The Giants,' Rissient on Hawks

    I have viewed myself into a corner; there’s practically nothing playing this afternoon that I haven’t already seen.

    55th San Francisco International Film Festival: from Fest Guilt and Porn to Rory Kennedy's 'Ethel'

    I’m not particularly fond of the phrase “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans,” (even if it’s attributed to Woody Allen). But I’m being reminded of it daily. A couple of days ago, I felt guilty that I was watching a James Bond marathon instead of attending the afternoon honoring...

    SFIFF: tUnE-yArDs Live Score For Buster Keaton & Fatty Arbuckle Films Did Not Disappoint

    One of the most anticipated annual events at the San Francisco International Film Festival is the live score performances held each year. While it would be hard to top last year’s Tindersticks live performance of their own Claire Denis scores, this year’s pairing of tUnE-yArDs (led by Me...
