Film festival fare: No big budget, just big entertainment

Michael C. Moore, writing for the Kitsap Sun:

Even the fans of big-budget shoot-'em-ups and special effects bonanzas should do the festival thing, to see how a great story is told without a $200 million budget, a bank of computers that could land a probe on Mars and two or three of Hollywood's most marketable stars (who, incidentally, eat up a huge chunk of that $200 million before a single frame has been shot).

A nice recap of some films at the Port Townsend Film Fest.
