Film Festival Thread


#1

Anyone in here love movies? Especially arthouse? Do you follow what’s on the horizon? I do. I’m a filthy film nerd.

I live near Melbourne so i try to attend a few films each year at MIFF. I caught 11 last year and was a pretty great experience with only seeing one clunker.

Cannes - Viennale - Berlinale - Rotterdam - Locarno - Sundance are the sauciest festivals IMO with world premieres that have me waiting impatiently to see.

Fav film of last year was An Elephant Sitting Still by Hu Bo, should have a home release hopefully this year. make sure 2 check it out

I love asian cinema so I ll check this one out.

Last film that really clicked with me was Columbus by Kogonada. Very slow and subtle kinda drama.

the best 4 hours of my lif


#5

#6

the whole thing could’ve worked within a shorter time i think. but still a great though depressing movie.


#7

just saw this one last saturday and can recommend it


#8

Yes, nice 1. seen this and loved


#9

ok, drop the arthouse movies and go watch this one:

best movie i’ve seen for a long time! Hollywood is doing a US-version of this but i guess they will fuck it up as usual so watch the original if you can. :wink:
