San Francisco this weekend

I think I'm heading up to San Francisco this weekend with some friends for Ashley's birthday. I'll be missing the first two days of the Santa Barbara Film Fest, which has been a highlight of every year I've been here. But they show most of the movies more than once, so I should be able to catch everything I want to see when it comes back around later in the week.

In any case, I've already looked over the schedule for the first few days and I didn't notice many films I'm dying to see. I'm worried that the roster isn't as good this year as it has been in years past. But it's awfully hard to judge from a single paragraph description. One sort of has to take one's chances and trust in the fact that the films have been consistently great.

But a weekend in SF should be a blast. We're staying here. We don't have much of a plan yet, but Ashley's never let that stop her before.

    Tale of Two Sisters and Old Boy have garnered a lot of positive press. Old Boy cleaned up at the Korean Critics Choice awards. Some folks were disappointed that it wasn’t the foreign language Oscar nominee for South Korea. Dark Water also has an asian connection despite being made by an American company and directed by a Brazilian.
    It looks like a pretty good line up, even if some of the movies seem a year too late. The SB Film Fest has certainly been growing in notoreity over the last few years.

    Thanks for the comments Matt. The SF trip may not happen now, so I’ll have more time for movies. Look for full reports next week. Is there anything else you’d recommend?
