Total geek-out for me this week, and it feels GREAT!! The Fantastic Fest started yesterday at the Alamo Drafthouse, and the first night was a blast. I quickly made some new friends, but also ran into old ones. In a lovely twist of fate, I saw a fabulous film, a psychological thriller written and directed by Simon Rumsley. Simon's flight from London was delayed so he didn't make it in time for the introduction, but was present for the Q & A. We chatted at the Film Opening party later, and it dawned on me why he looked so familiar - he's good friends with Thoma and the rest of the crew from Ovie Productions, who presented Darkon at this year's SXSW!
Reviews and observations of films to come...
