Part of Vegas Highs, Vegas Lows.
Date + TimeSaturday, December 27, 2008
LocationPhyllis Wattis Theater
Caveh Zahedi, 1994, 70 min.
I Don't Hate Las Vegas Anymore is a real-life documentary comedy about a filmmaker, Zahedi, who takes a road trip to Las Vegas with his father and half-brother in an attempt to prove the existence of God. He posits that if God exists then all he has to do is roll the camera and let God direct the movie. But it isn't going in the direction he would like, so he attempts to force God's hand by trying to persuade his father, half-brother and a heart-sick sound recordist to take Ecstasy with him. Either hilarious, indulgent or most likely both, Zahedi’s film won the prestigious Critics’ Prize at the Rotterdam International Film Festival.
