Tentative IFFB plans

Bolted work a little bit earlier than I probably should have at 5pm, took the 70A to Watertown Square, the 71 to Harvard, then the Red Line to the Somerville Theater at about 6:15. Wound up waiting in line for an hour to try and get tickets for Lonesome Jim, only to get turned away, even though it's a 900-seat theater. Ah, well, great Red Sox on NESN.

So, here's what I'm thinking for the weekend:

FRIDAY 6:30pm - SOMERVILLE 2 - Stolen - How many real-life art thefts do you really hear about? Sounds like a neat documentary.
FRIDAY 9:00pm - SOMERVILLE 2 - Childstar - Of the movies I'm planning on seeing, probably the one most likely to get a release. Still, the Chlotrudis people are cool, and it's got a nice cast.
FRIDAY 11:00PM - SOMERVILLE 5 - White Skin with "Herbie" - Creepy French movie. It's a bummer that I won't be able to hit all the "after dark" movies.

SATURDAY 12:15pm - SOMERVILLE 3 - Casting About with "Are You the Favorite Person of Anybody?" - Kind of inside baseball, but the casting process is one of the most important parts of making a movie I don't understand.
SATURDAY 3:00pm - BRATTLE - After Innocence - Documentary on those who have been exonerated by DNA evidence.
SATURDAY 7:30pm - SOMERVILLE 5 - The Hole Story with "Samuel Demango" - Looks like it might be in the vein of Incident at Loch Ness.
SATURDAY 12:00am - BRATTLE - Dead Birds with "The Netherbeast of Berm-Tech Industries, Inc." - Civil war horror being favorably compared with stuff from Japan? Nifty.

SUNDAY 3:30pm - SOMERVILLE 4 - The Future of Food with "Magda" - I'm kind of more interested in the animated short than the alarmist documenatry.
SUNDAY 5:45pm - COOLIDGE - Filmic Achievement - Odd, there's a short playing with the Friday and Saturday showings but not this one, apparently.
SUNDAY 9:00pm - SOMERVILLE 3 - Blackballed with "Spam-ku" - Paintball has to be at least as funny as dodgeball, right?

Obviously, if I can't get out of work in time for Stolen on Friday, a lot could get rearranged. There are a few spots on Friday and Saturday where I wish I could fit another movie in, but I figure it'll give me eating time. There's a couple I know will play the Brattle soon (The Girl From Monday and Kings and Queen). I'd really like to be able to get to Mysterious Skin and Spew, but I can't figure out how ot make it work.
