let the right one in

i went down to see let the right one in last night (it'll will be a short stint at the varsity theater here in seattle). this swedish film is a story about coming of age, first loves & vampires - to put it simply. paul constant has a perfect review over at the stranger saying, "(it) can become a film about all kinds of things: the weird sexuality of burgeoning adolescents, how anger and violence can sometimes be a perfectly reasonable response in the proper situation, and how love is always completely, seriously fucked-up."

i thought it could have been scarier, but the subtlety was perfect & it seems to have led to late night conversations about humanity for some.
