- I would rather see three movies and really absorb them than see six and have them blur together.
- I need to eat regularly and well, or I become cranky. I would rather skip a screening and have a decent meal than eat a granola bar during the trailers.
- Midnight movies are not my jam, crutches or no crutches.
- I would rather see something rare or uncommon than something popular in its premiere.
POST TENEBRUS LUX (Mexico): what TREE OF LIFE could have been. Gorgeous, sensuous, challenging.
WHEN NIGHT FALLS (Hong Kong): beautiful long takes, intimate portrait of grief, although could have done with shortened introductory section and less heavy-handed conclusion.
All in all, a great way to ease in to a jam-packed experience. Looking forward to a full day tomorrow, and a good night of sleep (hopefully) tonight.
