A night of music docs, which has always been an Indiefest/Docfest thing. First up was a completely packed screening of GODFATHERS OF HARDCORE. A portrait of a seminal New York hardcore punk band, Agnostic Front. It's full of great archival footage, but the ...

Jason goes to SilentFest--Day 4
Another full, full day of films, starting with NO MAN'S GOLD (1926) starring Tom Mix and, of course, Tony the Wonder Horse! As part of the Niles gang, my heart will always be with Broncho Billy, but I totally understand how Tom Mix surpassed him in populari...

Jason goes to Docfest--Opening Night
This was my important conflict that kept me away from the Silent Film Festival for one night. But I just can't resist a film called BREWMASTER. It's a wide-ranging exploration of serious brewing, from the established professionals to those looking to break ...

We started Thursday bright and early (10:00 am) with Amazing Tales from the Archives, always one of the best programs in the festival, if you can make it. First up we had Cynthia Walk and Martin Koerber from Deutsche Kinemathek talking about their new resto...

Jason goes to SilentFest--Opening Night
Even when it was just 3 days, I was consistently more exhausted after the San Francisco Silent Film Festival  than I was after any other 2+ week long festival. Now that they've expanded to 5 days, let's find out if I can even survive.  After some obligatory...

Jason watches SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY
And I enjoyed it. I appreciate most of the criticism, especially the criticism that can fit under the umbrella of "the existence of this movie is entirely unnecessary." I just don't care, I still enjoyed it. It's a fun action movie. Alden Ehrenriech is not ...
