Get Real to Go
class=img_thumbleft>The Get Real City Pages Documentary Film Festival "brings a worthy slate each fall that has earned genuine film-snob bragging rights," says the Star Tribune. It's "a lifesaver for those discouraged by... manufactured reality programming," says the MN Daily, and it "may be the most consistently excellent of the Twin Cities' many film festivals," says the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Well, we could have told you all that, but you wouldn't have believed us. Here's a full schedule (Nov. 4-10), all of which looks great (all films screen at the Lagoon Cinema in Uptown [official site here ], except for Prince's Sign O' the Times [reviewed here ], which screens at the Uptown Theatre ). Some personal recommendations: I.F. Stone's Weekly on Friday at 2:30 p.m., Sign O' the Times on Saturday at Midnight (first big-screen appearance in 15 years), The Joy of Life on Sunday at 5:30 p.m., The Green Bus V. The White House on Monday at 7:30 p.m., Two By Scorsese (pictured) on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., Minnesota Stories on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. (based on Chuck Olsen 's free-for-all video blog ). (More to come.)
