Good Day, Movie Lovers!
I’m here at the Provincetown International Film Festival in scenic Provincetown, MA, on the tip of Cape Cod. Some very notable movies playing here this week. I’m psyched to see “Lovelace,” about 70’s porn star Linda Lovelace of “Deep Throat” fame. Hopefully afterwards I’ll be able to catch the new Brian DePalma movie, “Passion,” with Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace.
The new movie from Pedro Almodóvar, “I’m So Excited,” is also showing here. He’s always an interesting filmmaker with a very particular style. A true auteur.
I would love to be able to see the documentary “Continental,” about the famous Continental Baths in New York City, but it’s playing at the same time as “Lovelace.” Oh well! You win some, you lose some. Kind of like how my baseball cap blew right off my head into the Atlantic Ocean on the ferry ride over here!
