Brushfires - (Philadelphia Gay and Lesbian Film Festival movie 4)

I really liked this one. It was called Brushfires. The film festival page for this movie is here.

Basically, seven directors, each writing their own fifteen minute movie created a movie in the format of a round-robin writing exercise. Awesome. Once the first director finished their film (based on a poem), the next director had to write a new screenplay continuing the story, etc.

This one revolved around five (though really just four, the fifth character was barely in it) oddballs who have their lives intersect. The acting was all phenomenal and I never knew quite where the story would be going (but, then again, neither did the actors, since they'd only get their scripts in fifteen minute increments).

I hope it is someday picked up to be released on DVD, 'cause I'd love to see it again.

I gave this one a "great"

If I can make a note to myself: If I ever see another movie in the "Black Box" at the Prince again...bring some kind of cushion. My god, were those seats uncomfortable. My tushie hurt.
