Killer of Sheep

Has anybody else seen this amazing film? Click here to read about it and see a list of upcoming screenings. It is absolutely beautiful--also brutal, funny, and unexpectedly surreal. Husband Dave called it a "tone poem" and I think that is exactly the right word for it. It will transport you. The PETA contingent might want to take a pass--there are numerous scenes in a slaughterhouse--but nobody else should miss it.

It's showing at PGH filmmakers!

I'm there...and dragging a friend to see it...

Oh, I hope you do! I'd love to hear what you think of it. I just bopped over to the site and watched the trailer--makes me want to see it again right now.

I heard an interview with the director on NPR a little bit ago. Evidently, it was never mass released due to copyright issues with the music he used. I would really like to see this sometime.

Bummer, Jen, you just missed its screening in Memphis. I suspect a DVD will be avilable at some point. BTW, it's playing here in Nashville through next weekend, if you feel like a road trip. ;-)

Ooh! I love road trips! Alas, I am sans car and I think it's a pretty long walk to Nashville from Memphis. I do wish I had known it was in Memphis. I'll keep my eye out for the DVD release.
