In honor of an upcoming experimental film festival, I’m writing S’Nuff Film in an edgy experimental fashion, meaning I’m not going to make any sort of effort to be entertaining or coherent, but you’re still going to tell all your friends you totally “get it” cause you want them to think you’re smart. Also I’m sitting pantsless in a vat of hot butterscotch pudding.
The Ann Arbor Film Festival Tour, a traveling offshoot of the oldest experimental fest in the U.S. is coming October 9 and 10 to UTSA’s Aula Canaria Theater (One UTSA Circle, utsa.edu). Different films will screen each night beginning at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
The Slab Cinema (slabcinema.com) project will show another kind of experimental film — as in the cooler kind with an actual lab experiment gone awry — Westworld, at 9 p.m. Saturday, October 4, at Historic Leonard House (1025 E. Crockett, (210) 212-9373). Now some of you film snobs might object to my favoring a tale of wild-west robotics malfunctions over the works of, say, Matthew Barney, but exactly zero percent of the Cremaster Cycle features mechanized Yul Brynner gunning down theme park tourists, so checkmate, weirdos. As we say at my house, the proof* is in the pudding. (*also, my ’nads.)
