In the Indie Film world....

There exist great films. I'm going to hopefully expose you to a few of them.



Paris, Je T'Aime, which translates to Paris, I Love You. This film was an extremely dope effort that features a number of A-List actors, who work with a number of A-List directors in 20 short films, all of them about some form of love in The City of Lights. Definitely worth the $5 to rent, both for a date and if you are just looking for something to watch on an evening in. And don't worry, it isn't all in subtitles.

Well, based upon the success and reception of the film, there is another one on the way.



That's right all you people from The Big Apple, there is a film highlighting your unexplainable yet grandiosely outspoken love for your city. The film was presented at the TIFF, which much to my dismay I was unable to attend, along side such films as Miracle at St. Anna, RocknRolla, and this little under the radar dopeness...



Medicine for Melancholy, a film about two African American 20 somethings who have a one night stand, but subsequently end up spending the entire next day together by what we will call "chance." While together they discuss love, art, racial politics, and life in San Francisco. What? A film about intelligent and articulate African Americans who aren't in drag or preaching to me about church and/or church related things! Yes, your eyes do not fool you.

Now, the beloved Blow-Us item. I bring to you, two of my favorite short scenes from Paris, Je T'Aime.



Faubourg Saint-Denis.



And Place des Fetes.


One day you will thank me for all of which I have done for you. Until that day, you will just address me as...

all three look pretty good. they'll be added to the 'purchase' list rather than the 'rental'.

Hope the last two come to an Indie theater near me...
