June 1st, 2019 - Rounding up the Usual Suspects
Steve's Livejournal

This morning our friends "K" and "M" arrived at our house and gave "J" to the Egyptian to see We Art the Radical Monarchs. J and I had already seen it, way back at a May 6 press screening, but we thought it would be great for M, so J took them to see it. J said that both M and K liked it quite a bit.

After the film, they returned here, and I went to the Egyptian for As the Earth Turns, one of two 1938 films of that title. This silent film was found in the home of the late film-maker by his family, and restored locally, with a new original score. A family member and the composer of the score appeared at the screening for a question-and-answer session. The film was good, in spite of some rudimentary special effects.

Next up, J joined me at the Egyptian (in a nick of time) for the SIFF Centerpiece Gala film Late Night. It's a good comedy, with a solid dramatic side, in spite of a false note near the end.

I proceeded to the DAR Rainier Chapter House for the gala party, and J stayed at the Egyptian for the Australian comedy Swinging Safari. She said it got a lot of laughs from the audience, but it was a bit too lowbrow for her tastes.

Meanwhile, "T" had an evening with one of his favorite visitors, "L".

J and I arrived home pretty late, and talked with L for a while before wishing her a safe drive home.
