Methodfest

These Girls plays this weekend (April 2nd) at Methodfest - a festival dedicated to the actor and named after the technique of "Method Acting", the basis for which was laid down by Konstantin Stanislavski* (pictured). Contemporary "Method" requires a performer to draw on his or her own self, on experiences, memories, and emotions that could inform a characterization and shape how a character might speak or move. I am super happy the cast of These Girls are getting the attention they deserve because, after all, without them where would I be (there is no need to actually answer this question). So if you are in the LA area - check it out. Unfortunately I will not be there as I will be at the screenings this weekend in Philly.

*A little known fact: In his time, Stanislavski's original ideas on "Method Acting" were considered progressive because they replaced earlier techniques involving pliers, metal clips and steel cages.

Cool I like method acting. Do you know if the Canadian DVD is going to be tweaked like the US version is? Please say it isn't. I want to see this movie in its entirety.
