If you knew what was good for you, you were at the Sightseers premiere the other night. And if you really, really knew what was good for you, you were at the second screening today. Because what is good for you is the watching the movie Sightseers. Well, that and eating a healthy, balanced diet. Also brushing your teeth. Yeah, that's good for you too. But, but! Way more important than something like "eating healthy" (pssh) is making sure you saw Sightseers. The packed house at the Ryerson premiere knew they were in for a treat when director Ben Wheatley introduced the film by saying there was a lot of f*cking in it. And dogs and vistas. You know--all the things that make a good film.
To those of you who apparently don't know what is good for you, you're in luck too because there is one more screenings of Sightseers during the festival. This is the best news since we found out that Yorkshire has the good kind of pasta sauce. See you at the last screening, Vanguarders.
SIGHTSEERS Screening Times:
Sun., Sept. 16th, 7:00 PM BLOOR HOT DOCS CINEMA
Sightseers was an excellent little film that really shows off Ben Wheatley's amazing style, really loved it #tiff

SIGHTSEERS (Wheatley, 2012) **** Uproarious & gory "evil Thelma & Louise" TIFF's most downright fun comedy in years. #TIFFvanguard #TIFF12

Yes! SIGHTSEERS is equally as hilarious as KILL LIST is gonzo and every bit as violent. Funniest movie I've seen at #TIFF & a definite fave.

Looking forward to Sightseers AGAIN tonight. One of the best films I've seen this year.

SIGHTSEERS - Pitch-black comedy dripping with crimson red. Wickedly funny. Ryerson crowd loved it. #TIFF12

SIGHTSEERS: utterly dark & brilliant; somebody take me to the pencil museum! "Check to see if he has any sandwiches." #TIFF12 #TIFFVanguard
