Cinema 16:9:

Opening Friday March 25 - Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. All Philadelphia cinephiles should try and make it over to cinema 16:9 to see this film. I didn't even think it would play in Philly and this may be the only opportunity for a while to see it. Go!

Also, the cinefest schedule is up and it doesn't look great. On first glance, nothing pops out a me. I will have to look at it more closely and hope there are some diamonds in the rough. I will post something in a few days with the films worth seeing. We should have some coverage of the festival from a variety of the writers here on the blog, so stay tuned!

  1. This might be the best list of upcoming films so far. I'm astounded 16:9 is playing Uncle Boonmee and that I've been waiting for it forever and now it's only right around the corner from my house. Great. Also, I'll probably be there for Jules and Jim at BMFI, and possibly to the Ritz for Heartbeats.
