Director Darius Marder talks about his film Loot at the Macklanburg Theatre.
This year I was a volunteer for the local True/False film fest, which just took place last weekend. I was on the screening committee, so a few months ago I watched a bunch of documentary movies and gave them a critical eye. I spent a fair amount of time brushing up my writing skills by writing summaries of all the films I watched. Most of the films I screened didn’t make it into the fest, so I ended up watching way too many films during the fest last weekend.
My favorite film that I saw at the fest was Loot. It was a great movie to watch with an audience; funny, poignant, and unpredictable. To top it off, the Q & A afterward with the director was just as interesting as the movie.
