17 days of film goodness is now over. Despite seeing 7 films this year, which is more than I have seen before at MIFF, I wish I could have seen more. But of the films I did see the highlights were Miranda July’s THE FUTURE and the two doco’s PAGE ONE: INSIDE THE NEW YORK TIMES and THE HOLLYWOOD COMPLEX.
If I had the chance – and extra time specifically – I would have seen these babies at a minimum:
THE TURIN HORSE (although not too bummed after the catastrophic screening that accompanied it)
JANE EYRE (this will be easy to catch in release though)
MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE
TINY FURNITURE (had tickets but had to work. GRRR! )
I AM ELEVEN
LIFE IN MOVEMENT
BOBBY FISCHER AGAINST THE WORLD
HOW TO DIE IN OREGON
BEN LEE: CATCH MY DISEASE
And it would have been great to catch these revival screenings:
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
THE DEVIL’S PLAYGROUND
THE KING OF COMEDY
So, until next year’s Melbourne International Film Festival, this is me, signing off!
