There is a certain hypnotic power in David Lowery’s films. Ain’t Them Bodies Saints is a post-modern Western, a form of near-magical realism, so vivid and detailed and intense as to seem dreamlike.
We’ve had some really nice interest in the project. It sounds nice now, but that might change later on when they say, “You know what? It’s not for us.” I like to keep expectations low. That way you don’t get your hopes up. And that way they can’t come crashing down.
Catch two of Rooftop Alum David Lowery’s acclaimed films for one week only at reRun Gastropub and Theater, starting tonight.
It’s been a heck of a week. I received so many kind words from so many strangers – about my film, sure – but none so kind as those about my mustache.
I rounded out my Sundance trip with two days packed with screenings and one day of typically miserable winter air travel. I’ll spare you the sad details of my flight problems, and start with some observations:
My reflections on Sundance hotel room cable movie watching, my friend Todd Rohal’s hilarious film The Catechism Cataclysm and whether or not the party will, in fact, be cool.
My film Pioneer premiered last night. As you can see from the pictures, I was, in fact, there. Any suspense over whether or not I would gain admittance to my own screening can now be laid to rest.
My short film Pioneer premieres this coming Friday night, and as of yet I have no tickets for the any of the screenings. Follow along, here at the Rooftop Films blog, as I set out to see my own film at Sundance!
