The Deliverator – Wannabee

So open minded, my thoughts fell out…

And so it begins…

We un-officially kicked the festival off Saturday with a showing of Star Wars: Revenge of the Siff at Cinerama. I enjoyed it MUCH MUCH more than the first two. I still don’t think George Lucas can write dialogue or love scenes worth squat, but this was a real return to form for him. So much so that it makes me wonder what went wrong with the first two.

Today is my first official day of SIFF. I will be seeing a film called “The Lizard” at Neptune. The Lizard is an Iranian commedy about a thief who dresses as a mullah to escape imprisonment. It caused quite a stir in Iran until the authorities shut it down. I am really looking forward to seeing this one. I think a culture is most illuminated when you can see how it satarizes itself, so this should be a revealing experience.
