The rain is back and it's time to retreat indoors and huddle in front of your TV. Gray days like these make me dream of escaping into another world and coupled with the glow of seeing WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, I'm up for some good fantasy films. We suggested several quality choices over on the Seattle Times site, but likely I'll end up with WILLOW. In theaters this weekend: the SEATTLE LESBIAN & GAY FILM FESTIVAL kicks off tonight at 7:30pm at the Egyptian with AN ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK starring John Hurt (reprising his role as Quentin Crisp). Be sure to visit the festival's site for all the film and Gala information or grab a colorful program here in the store. The FESTIVAL OF NEW SPANISH CINEMA is at SIFF Cinema; you can read more about it over on The SunBreak. Tonight at 8pm at Northwest Film Forum there's THE SAGA OF GOSTA BERLING, a lavish Swedish silent classic starring Greta Garbo and featuring live musical accompaniment from Murl Allen Sanders. Tomorrow (Saturday the 17th) at noon at Grand Illusion Cinema there's a screening of MUNYURANGABO to benefit Groundwork Opportunities efforts to help victims of genocide in Rwanda. Also at the GI, the All Monsters Attack Lives! series continues with THE SEVEN FACES OF DR. LAO, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS and the Late Night pick DOCTOR DEATH. SHALLOW GRAVE continues its run at Central Cinema and this year's Golden Space Needle winner BLACK DYNAMITE opens at the Varsity. Stay dry and happy viewing, all.
