A Chubby 13-Year-Old Boy

March 18, 2005

Someone asked me which one I liked better, The Motel or Saving Face. That's like asking which of your children you like better. I enjoyed them both, but they are such different films, how do you even compare?

If you missed any film this past week, the festival continues this weekend in San Jose.

For those of you not in the Bay Area, Saving Face will be showing in cities across the country this summer. Possibly The Motel too, though nothing's official yet.
