I Am Truly a Trendsetter

When I interned at the Film Society of Lincoln Center a few summers ago, one of the perks was that I got to watch all the New York Film Festival submissions that I wanted. And, even better, after the selections had been made, I was allowed to take home any of the films that didn't make the cut. I think the only two that I liked well enough to take home were this great Czech musical set in the late '60s called Rebelove (unfortunately, the tape's in PAL format and I haven't managed to get it converted to VHS yet), and this short film called Slo-Mo. Evidently I am not alone in my admiration of this quirky little short (which, incidentally, featured Katherine Moennig, who now stars on The L Word). Now they're turning it into a feature-length movie. I was so all over this one years ago.
