The Loft Film Fest kicks off tonight with a party on the Loft Patio at 6 p.m. followed by a screening of Lars von Trier's Melancholia at 7:30. I'm thinking Tyrannosaur, showing tomorrow night, looks pretty tasty, although it would mean missing Donny Darko on that awesome big screen downstairs, with an appearance by director Richard Kelly. I'm pretty sure that Gibson has his heart set on seeing Being Elmo on Tuesday night.
And that's just a tiny bit of the offerings you get to choose from over the next week as Peggy and the gang bring in some of the year's best movies that you won't see anywhere else. If you don't go see something this weekend, there's probably something wrong with you.
