Film Rating: A And so it begins! Tonight was the Opening Night of the 34th Starz Denver Film Festival, and it was a truly magical experience. Held at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House – a wonderful place to see a movie, similar to how films were watched decades ago – the festival kicked off with Drake Doremus’ “Like Crazy.” I’ve never attended a film festival before, and after tonight, I think it’s safe to say I’m in for a real treat over the next two weeks. On the most basic level, it is very special to see a great movie surrounded by an audience that takes film seriously, and the speakers who introduced the festival made it very clear that this event is a true celebration of cinema. Director Doremus was on hand to introduce the film and do a follow-up Q&A, and when he first came out on stage, he demonstrated a charming knowledge of his location by kneeling down and “Tebowing,” a gag that brought the house down.
