June 9th, 2019 - Rounding up the Usual Suspects
Steve's Livejournal

SIFF's capsule summary: "Seattle's most exclusive film club. See movies that no other audience (anywhere!) can watch."
SIFF link: Secret Festival #4

The whole point of the Secret Festival is that people who see them sign a pledge not to discuss the films with anyone except others who have signed the pledge. So I'm not telling what film showed.

10 Outstanding Although I'm not allowed to reveal what the film was, I can say whether I liked it. And I loved it. In my opinion, it's second only to The Woman Who Loves Giraffes as the best film in the festival. If I can find it to watch again, I'll probably watch it several more times.

Overall, I rate the film outstanding, my highest rating. This is the first year in a while that I've awarded even one "10" rating, let alone two.

Languages: Secret.

Rating: Secret.

Screening: 11 am, SIFF Cinema at the Egyptian.
Audience: mostly full, 575 seats (450 main, 125 balcony).

Snacks: none.

Ads and announcements:

  • SIFF 2019 trailer — I only recognize a few of the films featured in this one, so far.
  • Thank you, volunteers — Time for applause.
  • in-person announcement — Beth Barrett first announced the Golden Space Needle awards, then introduced the film.
  • Guess the cinematic dish clip — This series of guess-the-film clips are pretty good, but they could use more of them to be less repetitious.

Mostly notes to myselfCollapse )
