I totally fell asleep for this so had to finish it in the morning. Not exactly great festival protocol but good thing it's my festival and I do what I want!
I'm glad I saw the second half of this with fresh eyes rather than half-asleep because it's pretty good! O Bannon and Shusett definitely took a page from Ira Levin and the lead is basically Roy Scheider in Jaws but the ending reveal is pretty awesome and Jack Albertson as Dobbs the funeral owner is really great. I do kind of wish the whole film wasn't smeared with fog but maybe it's just the transfer?
Anyway, I liked this quite a bit and am super glad to have seen it. Now the next time I see the trailer at the Alamo I can share the same smug grin as everyone else and nod along like "oh, yeah, this is a good one."
And now it's time for my favorite new tradition at DVRfest. This being Saturday, I've refreshed my stack of unwatched criterions and have my dice at the ready. I've got 3d8 movies ranging from spine number 17 to 888 and that's including Che and World on a Wire. How many will I get through? Which ones will I see? Let's roll the dice and find out...
