This is a big day for the cultural elite in the Miami area, and everyone in Maryland who just had the same thought - "I didn't know there was a cultural elite in the Miami area" - ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

The 25th Miami International Film Festival begins today in theaters all around the city and continues until March 9. It will feature 120 movies from 50 countries, including several that debuted at last year's Sundance Film Festival and a restoration of Sergio Leone's classic western Once Upon a Time in the West.

If you want any popcorn, just make sure you get to the snack bar ahead of Michael Moore.
