LA Film Festival: Karina Longworth Recommends

Karina Longworth, who’s now reviewing film at Spout.com shared her recommendations for the LA Film Festival.

For me, the must-see film in the Narrative Competition would be What We Do Is Secret, a biopic about The Germs starring Shane West as Darby Crash that I’ve been following for a while.

As far as documentaries go, Jennifer Vendetti’s Billy the Kid is fighting an almost unreasonably brutal Variety review, but it won an award at SXSW, and I think it’s going to be one of the most talked-about indies of the year.

There’s also a program curated by Pharell Williams, who is the Artist-in-Residence. I’m not sure what that means, but he’s going to do a chat with Elvis Mitchell that should be interesting. Also, when asked to program a sidebar of films that influenced him, he picked Close Encounters of the Third Kind and National Lampoon’s Vacation.
