Miami International Film Festival - almost over!!!

It's not actually almost over; you've got about a week left to see some films. I was flipping through the book, and here are some you might want to see, or not.

For all you indie motherfuckers and intellectual-ish hipsters, Michel Gondry is one of three directors of Tokyo, a creepy movie about the Japanese city. Showing at the Lincoln Road theater on Sunday at 9:15 p.m.

Malcolm Mclaren directed Shallow, which displays people about to have sex set to his own music. Great date flick, if you're horny. Showing on Wed. at 9, Miami Beach Cinematheque on Espanola.

Both charming and beautiful Natalie Portman and the ever frightening Demi Moore (Benjamin Button?) directed shorts that will be shown on Thurs. (Tower Theater at 6:30) and Fri. (Regal on Lincoln Road at 6:45).

On Fri. and Sat. at the Tower Theater, Faces and Shadows, John Cassavetes movies, will be screened.

Shit you missed:
In 8, believe it or not, eight directors have composed a film addressing the UN's Millennium Development goals to halve world poverty by 2015 (good luck!). Directors include Abderrahamne Sissako, Gael Garcia Bernal, Gaspar Noe, Mira Nair, Jame Campion, Gus Van Sant, Jan Kounen and Wim Wenders.

Berlin Calling looks incredibly not interesting, but it got a bunch of press. It's about a DJ and his nagging girlfriend. He does too many drugs and ends up in the mental hospital. It's like a weekend at White Room.

Did you know Malcolm Mclaren managed the Sex Pistols and the New York Dolls? He also had a crazy album in the 80's called Duck Rock. Coincidentally, I played his merengue track from that album while you were hanging out with me at Shake.

...and he also procreated with Vivienne Westwood. I didn't know you played one of his tracks on Thurs. Why're you so good Casoman?
