“After being named the best movie theater in the Twin Cities by City Pages, the Trylon Microcinema has announced its summer program with many films that should be seen on its screen.
“I might be biased since this 50-seat theater has been home to our Sound Unseen monthly screenings for over a year and a half, but for others in the Twin Cities who enjoy going to the movies, it has become a second home. The theater is equipped with dual 35mm projectors, has some of the best projection and sound I’ve recently seen and/or heard in the Twin Cities, and has reasonably priced snacks.”

“When I walked out of the auditorium Julian Schnabel spotted me and we met in the Walker lobby, sitting on the comfy green couches. Schnabel sunk right in and was ready for my questions a few hours before the Regis Dialogue was to begin. Little did I know, I had a small amount of time to speak with him since his schedule was jam-packed until the dialogue started: the interview would continue from the Walker lobby to his car on the way back to his hotel for a scheduled dinner. Also, I discovered that I would be answering questions about myself (a first for me).”

“I cannot get writer/editor/director Aaron Katz’s newest film, Cold Weather, out of my head. I’ve seen the film three times now, and it makes its Twin Cities premiere this Friday at St. Anthony Main Theatre, presented by the MSP Film Society, and is easily the best American independent film I’ve seen in the first quarter of 2011.”

“The new South Korean bloody masterpiece I Saw the Devil is not for the faint of heart. Those who have a high tolerance for pain will appreciate this graphic mystery/suspense/horror film, while others may need to take a cold shower after seeing it. It will certainly spark conversation.”
