I can hardly complain, but this is a little too much to handle. Spring is traditionally the worst movie season. Um...
Every Monday in April, Take-Up Productions is presenting" Sweet Escapism: Screwball Comedies of the Great Depression" at Pepito's Parkway Theater. The renovation at the theater is progressing, and so far the change in ownership has been very impressive indeed.
The Walker Art Center continues to churn out premieres and international film series at a terrific clip. Tuesday I was witness to an hour and a half of passionate ranting by Errol Morris following a preview screening of Standard Operating Procedure. More on that later.
Wednesdays in April and May, the United Artists 90th Anniversary Film Festival is being hosted by the Landmark in Edina. Classics, on the big screen, every week.
And today, of course, is the start of the 26th Annual Minneapolis/St. Paul International Film Festival. I list my hopefuls here, and Colin Covert sets the appropriate mood here.
Oh, right. There are also seven new releases I'm interested in seeing in the next two weeks. Impossible, you say? Well, you're usually right.
For these reasons and more, I'm going to Las Vegas this afternoon.
