Marisa Vela Has Two Eyes

The Frisco Bay repertory/revival scene cannot be taken in by a single pair of eyes. Thankfully, a number of local filmgoers have agreed to share their favorites from 2009. An index of participants is found here.

The following list comes from Marisa Vela, who has contributed twice before to my wrap-ups here:


SF Punk - Target Video at the SF Public Library / Our tax dollars at work, a packed auditorium, The Sleepers!

JEANNE DIELMAN, 23 QUAI DU COMMERCE, 1080 BRUXELLES, SFMoMA

UNDERWORLD and EROTIKON, Silent Film Festival, Castro Theater

UNDERAGE and WOMEN IN THE NIGHT, Roxie / Welcome back Elliot! Please program more often! (Like maybe some pre-code)

BALL OF FIRE, Castro Theater / Watching this film, while knowing that it is being withdrawn from theatrical release was my Goodbye Dragon Inn moment of the year. Bittersweet.

Martha Colburn at SFMoMA / I went for Jad Fair, and was introduced to Martha Colburn's work. Plus I got to see Jad provide live vocal accompaniment to the shorts EVIL OF DRACULA and MONSTER ISLAND. (Its Godzilla, he's on monster island. What's he sound like? He sounds like this AAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGRRRRRHHRHRHRH!!!!!!!!!!!!)
