June movies

June was a good month for movies. I started out in Seattle for eight films at SIFF which I wrote about in a post a few weeks ago. The rest of the month saw me really watching a lot of documentaries--ten for the month in total. SJ and I saw four films at the Los Angeles Film Festival [post soon with details on that] and I saw a group of good new releases [Killer Joe, Safety Not Guaranteed, Your Sister's Sister] and one disappointing new film [Prometheus]. Seeing Tootsie with a full house at the Orpheum with Dabney Coleman killing the pre-screening Q and A was another highlight of the month. Here's the full list:
