Greetings Cinematic Revolutionaries:
Here is the best of what LA has to offer to those who take cinema seriously. Many great films this week! I recommend you run out to Weerasethakul's excellent Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives before it leaves this Thursday! Then it is required that you see the Nouvelle Vague's second best musical, next to A Woman Is A Woman, Umbrellas Of Cherbourg. Seeing this film in full color and sound is the only way! And also check out Secret Sunshine, the film is yet another one of South Korea's fine film exports.

Also, I'm interested in meeting LA Cinephile filmmakers and theorists. Please throw an email!
