Went to Southland Tales at the Colony tonight, meeting badger and jay there. I was glad I'd read the prequel graphic novel first, though the film does a pretty good job of summarizing the essentials from the book. As with Donnie Darko, I think Richard Kelly tries to put too much in the film: too many characters, too much backstory, too much philosophy, too much Revelation for a mere 144 minutes. But it's got a mega-zeppelin and a levitating ice cream truck, so I have to love it anyways. Note that the Colony's run of Southland Tales ends tomorrow, so if you want to see it on the big screen, do it tomorrow.
