second-last day of SIFF press screenings - Rounding up the Usual Suspects
Steve's Livejournal
second-last day of SIFF press screenings

This morning, "J" and I were back to usual on getting going on time, and traffic was no more miserable than usual, so we arrived at the usual parking lot with time to spare. I even had time to go back to the car after realizing I had forgotten my SIFF pass, so I didn't have to bother the press screening gatekeepers with a request to wave me in without it. (They know me, but I prefer not to ask people to bend rules for me.)

The 10 am film, Rush Hour, was 79 minutes of nicely photographed scenes of three families who spend too much of their lives commuting. I dozed through quite a bit of the film, and even the portions I was awake for struck me as more than I needed to see on the topic.

The noon film, Little Tito and the Aliens, had a very charming title character, and most of the audience enjoyed the film in spite of its cheesiness.

The 2 pm film, Girls Always Happy, was frequently funny, but too often cringe-worthy. There was a good 90-minute film hiding in the film's 117 minutes, the too-long version was what we saw on screen.
