The Man in Black (Pajamas)

Sure, the actual scheduling of films at a film festival isn't easy, as most try to cram in as much as possible to leave cinephiles bleary-eyed as long as possible. But this just seems perverse to me--SBIFF today screened Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison at 8:15 am. Was the theme Cash instead of coffee? If anything seems best suited for a late night slot, it's a film that has to rock. (And I know Cash is country if we want to play genre games, but one reason he endures is his rock sensibility, more than many "rockers" ever had.)

Maybe parolees get released at 8 am? Or the prison guard shift switches in perfect time for that screening?
