Yep, neat, eh?

It was some kind of premier, but not the *big* one.

I'm pretty sure I'm going, but i haven't signed up yet. I really enjoyed the
movie part of it - including a handful of good documentaries.

Some favorites: 
Memento - we're all hip to that

The Journey - people in a VW bus driving cross-country and talking to
"successful" people, looking for wisdom. Notable moments: bringing the CEO
of UPS to tears; getting Henry "The Fonz" Winkler to stop giving toss-off
answers and really talk about things/life. The guy had some good
interviewing skills.

Okie Noodling - people catching giant catfish with their bare hands

Down From the Mountain - the concert of the players from "O' Brother Where
Art Thou?" soundtrack. Fantastic.
