After viewing Durden Godfrey’s I Am Going to Kill Someone This Friday, I hoped those involved in promoting it would launch it to a wider audience. The premiere played to a sold-out crowd. Now there’s an encore in Jacksonville, and I highly recommend it. The Jax encore isn’t the only future this indie film has, though.
One reason for its success is that film sticks in your head. You don’t forget it. You may be puzzled at some points, but in the end, everything comes together. Then everything unglues itself right inside your mind. The acting is superb.
An announcement in my email this morning said:
“I Am Going to Kill Someone This Friday sets a new bar for how indie productions are produced and what should be expected from the end result, offering moviegoers a quality experience that dares to reach for the quality and consistency of big budget films while enjoying the depth and edginess that is commonly exclusive to indie cinema. With a story inspired by Hitchcock and an aesthetic inspired by Kubrick, ‘Kill’ lands right on the mark it intended to hit. I Am Going To Kill Someone This Friday screened to a sold-out audience in Jacksonville, Florida on August 9, 2018, presented by The Jacksonville Film Festival.”
This indie film’s legs are getting stronger, via word of mouth and a great deal of positive press, and now there’s an encore showing in Jacksonville. That will be followed by a world tour, taking the film to “art house theaters, indie cinemas, drive-ins and home viewing parties across the U.S.”
The encore screening will be held Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 7 p.m. at Sun-Ray Cinema [1028 Park St.; 32204] in Jacksonville. Tickets are a modest $10 and they can be purchased online in advance.
If you’re looking for a film that makes you laugh, grimace, and wow in a single experience, go see I Am Going to Kill Someone This Friday.
