SFIFF52—14 x 75 @ The Auteurs Notebook
I was genuinely complimented when Danny Kasman of The Auteurs Notebook invited me to contribute a piece on SFIFF52. Since each year I seem to have a hissy fit about something at SFIFF, I elected this year to defuse the hiss of this year's irritant by tackling that pesky varmint: the 75-word hold-review capsule. In full disclosure, I must admit that—after working on this piece—I derived guilty pleasure from writing so little about so much. I guess I'll have to second-think the value of the hold-review capsule after all.
