IFFB 2010: Monday, What to Watch

The Russian 1950s-period musical Hipsters (screened at IFFB yesterday) was awesome. All those stylized shots of the colors, the dancing, the beautiful people – it was amazing. Great story and great characters with an ending that is oddly satisfying despite it not wrapping up the story.

Sure, it’s a weeknight – but there’s still plenty good stuff to see at the Independent Film Festival of Boston.

I’m trying to choose between Searching for Elliot Smith (another musician documentary, this one about Smith and the suspicious circumstances surrounding his suicide) and Tiny Furniture a somewhat autobiographical film that stars the director, her mom, and her sister all playing themselves or some version of themselves. Perhaps an interesting film experiment? (*Note: Both directors will be in attendance.)

I’ll definitely be catching The Good, The Bad, The Weird by the same director that did my favorite horror film, A Tale of Two Sisters. It will also be playing at the Kendall Theater next week, so if you’re catching it then instead, I also recommend Shorts 2: Docs which is playing opposite it at the festival. Snake Fever and Keep Dancing have great subjects.
