The annual Sound Unseen Film and Music Festival kicks off today with “Every Everything,” a documentary about Husker Du founder Grant Hart. For the next week, Sound Unseen curator Jim Brunzell III rocks the Twin Cities at the Landmark Center, the Trylon, and McNally Smith College of Music.
This week in The Niles Notes, Niles reviews “The Dictator,” the so-bad-it’s good “Parents,” and a special screening of “The Battleship Potemkin.”
The Niles Notes anticipates the Mpls/St.Paul International Film Fest screening of Andrea Arnold’s follow-up to “Fish Tank,” “Wuthering Heights.” The Riverview and Trylon are hosting Hitchcock all month, and Whit Stillman’s wit returns after a long absence with “Damsels in Distress.”
Plucked like scribbled Post-Its from the musty cabinet containing The Niles Files, these are The Niles Notes, a weekly what’s-what, what-for, and what’s-that following the world of film, wide and small, national and local, mainstream and indie, new and old.
