Seattle International Film Festival Haikus

Poor Seattle Maggie. She's been so busy with her exciting Seattle life that she's barely had any time for movies at this year's Seattle International Film Festival, an event Cinecultist heartily enjoyed attending with her when we both resided in that rainy city. However, SM did catch a few things of note, mostly chosen by how little they anticipated they'd have to endure "standing in line and crowds and running to get seats," and she haiku reviewed them. Here's some of her syllable-counting brilliance.

Manufactured Landscapes
China is quite big
Destruction can be pretty
Sleepy but gorgeous

The King of Kong
Monkey named Donkey?
Battles with machine and man
Wide grins in the dark

The Last Winter
Nature bares her teeth
Don’t turn your back on that corpse!
Ron Perlman is hot

Big Rig
Truckers have hard lives
Asphalt string wraps the country
Doug Pray signed our stub
