Last night the Las Vegas film festival, Cinevegas, opened with a film starring Steve Buscemi.  I really had no clue what Saint John of Las Vegas was about so I thought it'd be a good idea to post the synopsis from the Cinevegas site:

Divinely inspired by Dante's Inferno, SAINT JOHN OF LAS VEGAS, features a gambler, a wheelchair-bound stripper, a human torch, an armed nudist colony and a pitch-perfect performance by one of our finest actors: Steve Buscemi....what a perfect way to open the 2009 CineVegas Film Festival. John (Buscemi) has finally gotten his life back on track. The ex-gambler whose only luck is bad ran away from Las Vegas, ending up in Albuquerque with a dull but stable job in insurance. He even has a budding romance with a sexy co-worker. But fate leads him back towards temptation: When John gets a promotion to fraud investigating, he must return to Las Vegas for his first case. Paired with a savvy veteran who prides himself on preventing scams, his journey leads him down a precarious path checkered with a bizarre cast of characters. Will his luck change or is fate in his own hands after all?

Besides starring Buscemi, Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother Where Art Though), Romany Malco (The 40 Year Old Virgin), Peter Dinklage (The Station Agent) and Sarah Silverman (if you don't know Sarah Silverman you should just google her) also make an appearance.  The film sounds pretty interesting.  Hopefully it comes to DVD soon so we can Netflix it.

Speaking of O Brother Where Art Thou, looks like you'll be able to catch it Monday June 15th on ITV4 in the UK.
