Best Evidence - Big Screen Premiere

One hundred and eleven Haligonians, according to the official count by the Oxford Theatre staff, came out this evening to catch the screening of Best Evidence and Famous Monster at the historic Oxford, the last remaining non-big box, "cookie cutter" cinema in Halifax. That's roughly twice what the Nova Scotia Film Development Corporation usually gets to these free screenings of local films.


Damn. I'm in in the film and I still haven't seen it. Fortunately the DVD's in the mail.

Just for fun, here's my view of Paul Kimball and photography director Findlay Muir filming me back in May of last year.





Paul appears to be beating his chest. Considering my scattered monologue on all things ufological and otherworldly, I can't say I blame him.

Actually, I was doing some interpretive, 80s-style dancing. You know - like Tears for Fears. :-)

Wait a second...grassy knoll area, angle of cement walkway compared to street in Dealy Plaza, Zapruderish cameraman, arms raised akimbo ala JFK in his presidential Lincoln in the moment after the first bullet...

Are you sure this isn't instead a visual reinterpretation and documentary inspired by Ballard's short story "The Assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy Considered as a Downhill Motor Race"?

[Ballard himself claimed that "it was an attempt for me to make sense of that tragic event."]

So, perhaps...?
