WHAT TO WATCH (while embroidering)


I watch a lot of movies while I'm embroidering. It's not as easy as knitting, since you have to keep your eyes on your work. But this movie kept my eyes off my stitching. It just came out on DVD and is a good 'un. If you like sweet, absurdist films in undiscovered foreign languages (optional subtitles in Esperanto), this is for you. It has it all: sasquatch, an accordian serenade, nightvision visions...it's dreamy and funny and I've watched it twice. Plus I love how the gunfire on the box cover looks like embroidery stitches (that would be a hidden stitch). Directed by David Zellner, stars Wiley Wiggins. You can get Frontier from Film Threat.
