Featured Film:

The 2018 Seattle International Film Festival

SIFF kicks off its 2018 edition this week and we’ll have full coverage here throughout the next three and a half weeks of the festival. I’ve got a brief preview of some of the films we’re looking forward to over this first week, including Paul Schrader’s First Reformed, documentaries on Freaks & Geeks, MIA, and John McEnroe (that’s three separate films, though now I’m imagining a Fast, Cheap & Out of Control-style doc about the three of them all together and that would be really cool), and archival presentations of classics by Derek Jarman (Edward II) and Kenji Mizoguchi (Sansho the Bailiff). The latter would be my suggestion if you could only see one festival film this week. Or this festival. Or probably if you could only see one film on screen in Seattle this entire year.
