October 7th, 2016.
If it felt like merely hours ago that I did a BFI LFF event, that's because it was - for the 'thing' they did for La La Land that featured the director and two stars (sadly not the two on the poster).
But after a short takeaway dinner and a toilet break (note to self : find a way to make life seem more glamorous) I was back, and it was darker, and later, and only marginally less crowded, for 'American Honey'.
Here's how it went down:
So... that was that. Not just two in one day, but two in four hours. And I'm going to try the same again tomorrow, and probably would have done it again on Sunday except I was informed by my landlord that they mean to have an apartment inspection of my place on Tuesday morning. And I'm out of town for most of Monday as well. Which is a bit like asking Africa to cure malaria by next Tuesday, except with the threat of possible eviction if I/they fail. Worst case I leave the front door unlocked and put a sign out pleading to be robbed clean, I suppose.
Anyway, one way or another it's another entry for my 'Archive of Movie Premieres', with (hopefully) more to come.
Until next time!
