NW Film Festival: Mania
After waiting in the rain for 15 minutes for the museum to open exactly at 6:00, the film about the Blazers titled Mania was anything but manic. Once inside the auditorium, I was able to people watch before the film started which actually turned out to be helpfull seeing as many of the people from the film were sitting around me. It was a neat addition to the film to see the featured, local celebrities interacting with each other live and in person.... The film on the other hand was dull and did not fulfill its high volume title. The interviews were long winded, the same photos of the crowd were shown multiple times, and the weird chime-based soundtrack did not fit the content of the film. Defiantly not worth the seven bucks.
