We start off this week with a review of the indie lo-fi science fiction film “Sound of My Voice,” and from there we go on to discuss an interesting, but potentially troubling trend: indie movies wrapped inside a genre conceit. We end on a somber note as we pay tribute to two AYT favorites: Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch, aka MCA, who died last Friday morning in New York after a three-year battle with cancer and Where the Wild Things Are writer/illustrator Maurice Sendak, who passed away at 83 due to complications from a recent stroke.
If you’re a Portland listener then make sure to come out to the Whitsell Auditorium this Friday as the NW Film Center continues its latest retrospective series: CASTLES IN THE SKY: MIYAZAKI, TAKAHATA, AND THE MASTERS OF STUDIO GHIBLI. We’ll be showing new 35mm prints of most of the classics from this giant of world cinema, with KIKI’S DELIVERY SERVICE screening Friday at 7pm and more this weekend. The series runs through May 27. Head to nwfilm.org for more information on titles, screening times and to purchase tickets.
