The city is a blur with the sweet sounds of Jazz this week as the SF Jazz Festival rages into it’s last day in the Hayes Valley/Van Ness area. Not a film festival but cinematic indeed, this festival features great musical talents that inspire film in many ways.
Of all the film festivals to grace the Castro Theatre year-round, the SF Silent Film Festival is one of it’s finest gems. Coming to us at the tail end of spring, each year this festival provides viewers with a taste of visual history. It reminds us how far (and at times how little) the medium of cinema has grown over time. Tonight is closing night so if you have a chance, head on over to the Castro for some Buster Keaton magnificence!
I mean this literally!
And you thought that scene from The Bachelor (1999) with Chris O’Donnell was original didn’t you?
