Would love to have 72 consecutive hours where I can leave town to think about things.

My Schedule for CIFF today: BLACKTHORN, REDEMPTION OF GENERAL BUTT NAKED, MONSIEUR LAZHAR

I finally have my comment on RED STATE:
"Red State is an ambitious film by Kevin Smith, and that's what is so frustrating about it.
The movie tries to be a little bit of everything which in the end makes it uneven and ends up being just a shoot 'em up.
High marks though for 2 awesome performances by John Goodman and Michael Parks."

It's been 2 days since I've seen RED STATE, and I'm still trying to digest how I feel about it. It isn't that it's something that is complex, but it's hard to pull the film out of the experience of seeing it.
I'm trying to decide if in my mind it would be a good movie if Kevin Smith was NOT in attendance. It's by no means a complicated movie.. but I'm still trying to form an opinion on it separate from the event itself. So far, it isn't a positive vibe on further reflection.
