FILMS EVERYONE SHOULD SEE.
I’ve just started to work on Split Reel’s 123 Films Everyone Should See feature. It will be up in page form during .. September (let’s say September and not in the next couple of weeks, because well, I’m lazy and I think I’m getting a cold! Ah, bienvenue les excuses..) A collection of classics, independent cinema, 123 Films will represent the type of cinema I enjoy, and think you would (at least you should) too. Based on favourites rather than the best the list will probably be a bit 90s and 00s-centric since I am .. young and not the biggest classic movie fan. There are other movie blogs out there that know more, enjoy it more. I’ll keep you updated.
Espoo Ciné is over!
During the 10 days festival, I got to see 14 pretty cool films, some better, some worse. Considering I work 56 hours a week, I think 14 is an ok number, but hope to catch more next year. The 14 films covered 8 different countries; Albanya, The UK, Ireland, The US, Sweden, Norway, Germany and France. (How often can you say that about your watchlist!) Thanks to Espoo Ciné for once again providing a brilliant festival focusing on European cinema, I’ll be back next year!
Look forward to a review of Win Win (2011) and Allen’s Midnight in Paris (2011)!
One of the funniest posts I’ve read in a while is over at And So It Begins…. This brilliant feature on directors talking trash made me laugh out loud multiple times.
Andrew analyzes his love-hate relationship with Quentin Tarantino.
Joel Burman’s podcast debut.
Read this interesting list on Top 10 films to have driven people to murder over at Top 10 Films!
And, so I won’t forget, and you’ll hopefully join in, two really interesting and innovative Blogathons coming up :
– The Juxtaposition Blogthon at Pussy Goes Grrr, September 12-16.
– The World in Film at The Great Movie Project, September 9-12!
