For fans of the 2008 Swedish import Let the Right One In who have angrily littered the Internet with cries of blasphemous imitation, Chloë Moretz, the 13-year-old star of Let Me In, opening Friday, has a simple request: Give Matt Reeves’ remake a chance.
“Put aside the controversy and watch the movie,” says Moretz, who plays Abby, a centuries-old vampire trapped in the pale, deceptively frail-looking body of a 12-year-old. “See if you take something new from it.”
The fourth annual Artists' Television Access Film & Video Festival, a celebration of underground film dedicated to showcasing the work of emerging and established artists from around the world, winds to a close tonight with "Stories We Tell Ourselves," a program featuring Myth Labs, Martha Colburn's fascinating contemplation of Puritanism and the current Methamphetamine epidemic, and Chorus, San Francisco artist Paul Clipson's brilliant collage of lights and sound. The films will be followed by a musical performance by the Los Angeles band Karma McCartney, as well as the announcement of the festival's audience award winner.
