Best of SIFF

They should have thought of this years ago. The Seattle International Film Festival is over and gone, but for those of us who just couldn't find the time to see all the films we wanted, the SIFF Cinema is running a program of the "Best of SIFF" this weekend. Most exciting to me is having another chance to see The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle, Sunday at 8:30. "Dizzle" is the first feature film by local film maker David Russo, using animation and time-lapse cinematography to tell a wild tale about druggie janitors, clandestine market research, and addictive cookies that cause men to give birth to small, blue creatures. It got some excellent reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, and is not scheduled to play in Seattle again anytime soon. I haven't seen it or ANY of the other films in the lineup, so I have no idea what makes them the best, but like so many of the movies at SIFF, it's worth taking a chance. The full schedule is here.
