Mother was Tim League’s favorite film of 2009 (full list) and Rodney Perkins #5 favorite (full list). I’ll be doing the first ever Cinema is Dope best of list later this week for 2009 and I can tell you that this film will also rank high in my list. I had to camp out almost 3 hours before it started at Cannes Film Festival 2009 just to see it due to its enormous interest there. By the end as the credits rolled it was like the audience didn’t know whether to cry, applaud, hug each other or just let out a resounding, “OHMYGOD!” It was an incredibly powerful film and movie going experience I won’t soon forget, especially up on a big screen with a fresh audience that had no idea what they were in for. I’m shocked this has yet to screen anywhere in Austin yet but it looks like with Magnolia Pictures releasing it, we can be sure that a screening at the Alamo Drafthouse will happen at some point in the near future.
