Some of his Beeswax
I'm not in the habit of recommending movies sight unseen, but I'm willing to make an exception for Beeswax, the latest indie effort by filmmaker Andrew Bujalski. For one thing, I'm a great admirer of Bujalski's previous feature, Mutual Appreciation. For another: If you see Beeswax at 4:20 p.m. or 7:10 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 10, at the Angelika Film Center in downtown Houston, you'll be able to talk with Bujalski and lead actress Tilly Hatcher during a Q&A session after each screening. The film itself has garnered raves from such discerning critics as A.O. Scott and Jeffrey M. Anderson, so the odds are good that, if you like this sort of thing, as I do, this is the sort of thing you'll like.
