Austin Film Festival Diary – Day 4: A Moment of Silence

By  · Published on October 31st, 2006

Last night I had the privilege of attending the Barbecue the festival puts on that’s notorious for its great food and free-flowing beer/wine/spirits (a common theme, no?). It’s one the few outdoor events, and it was nice to get outside before soldiering through day four indoors with panels and films.

So far I’ve been fairly lucky in the panels and films I’ve chosen. I should point out that I’ve been noted as giving “good reviews” for movies. The reason for this? Because I go to movies I’m interested in seeing, so it gives me a natural bias of at least digging the subject matter. However, much like the Mexican presidential election of 2000, I’ve proven I’m not an infallible oligarchy shadow-government run by a single party (or a sunshiny movie reviewer). You will see what I mean by my write-ups of the movies of the evening:

A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints

and

Snoop Dogg’s Hood of Horror (review coming soon!)
