"This is supposedly a comedy, yet there's not actually one funny moment in the entire thing." Sounds like a Woody Allen film.

Is fantastic, and Peter Capaldi is incredible in it.

I was on honeymoon in Melbourne about 3 weeks ago; you're not kidding about those seats in the Greater Union, they're terrible. Had a look at the festival programme, looked really good. I'm in an alright position though, the NZIFF is on in my city starting this week, so I'm seeing Thirst, Moon, Mother, Mary and Max, and Dead Snow. Hope they're all good.

Wasn't Moon great? I thought one of the most amazing parts of it, that many reviews don't mention, was how interesting and perfect the music was. it was very mechanical and odd, but fit perfectly with this isolated place. and then once the main character begins (I'll be vague) to "find out" some things, it begins to be filled with more and more melody and humanity. and when he (again, vague) makes an outgoing call, it reverts to just a simple piano (with maybe a cello or viola, I can't remember) in the most human and earthbound way possible. just magnificent.<p> and ironically, I saw the trailer for The Cove while watching Moon in theaters here in Seattle with my mom. afterwards, I asked her (since she's very much an activist about these types of issues) if she's see it with me later. her response: "no, I already hate the world enough."<p>well, I'm on the fence, but I'm willing to see an amazing documentary, even if it pushes me over the edge into Greenpeace warrior territory.

That looks awesome, has there been any mention of Cedar Boys or $quid? I'm waiting to hear something on those.

watching In the Loop... strange. The film itself had brilliantly funny dialog but I wan't feeling it story wise. Maybe it was too close to reality to be a parady or maybe I'm just a grumpy old fuck.. Also saw Balibo last night.. damn that was brilliant. Highly recommended. The only wierd bit was having Bracksy speak a bit before the movie... boo former politian! The other film that surprised me so far was Murch-Walter Murch on editing. Basically a spoken word/interview piece with the guy who did the editing on the godfather films and apocalypse and other stuff. Funny,philosophical and really captavating/interesting. Even for a tight arse like me I'de say its DVD worthy. Very highly recommended. Also saw Martyrs. Damn. Too much. Most of the film is just gore and a ill thought ie it doesn't feel like it has a story to give it momentum until right near the end when you get a 2 minute speech to try and justify it almost as an afterthought. Weak. I get what he was doing story wise but it was just weak story wise. Shocking so damned much that the shock became became dull if that makes sense. Avoid. Also saw Tyson. Basicsally an extended interview. Hated the occasional wanky editing but pretty damned interesting interview. Recomended.

In The Loop's based on a TV show called The Thick of It. 8 episodes. Another 8 being made this year. Capaldi plays his Loop character, and it's simply one of the best TV comedies of the decade. Youtube is your friend. Or ABC shops, but the DVD is missing the two specials, which are sublime.

BadMrWonka: The Cove will do well because despite the horrific subject matter, it's brilliantly exciting AND incredible optimistic. You come out feeling like something can be done, yet your sense of outrage is still there. It's masterful stuff! <BR> <BR> Croooow: I love reading about BIFF's programming (they do amazing stuff up there), but two weeks of solid film festival is all I can cram into my year. Cut and paste similar response to white_vadar. <BR> <BR> Maniaq: Thanks for the link fix, and the Che review(s) will be up by next Monday. As a massive Soderbergh freak, I simply cannot wait. <BR><BR> Potatino: Thanks for all your thoughts -- I'm catching the second screening of the Murch doco, so I'm glad to hear it's everything I hoped for. <BR> <BR> TheWrongGuy: I hope you have stocks in that show, 'cos I'm buying it based entirely on your talkback. Cheers! <BR><BR> Now I need sleep. Just did five more films today and need to write up the reviews so I don't forget what I saw...

It's all good. To be honest, I didn't know which SIFF you might have meant -- I have a theory that it's the most prolific acronym in film festivals. Do I buy my ticket to Sydney? Seattle? Sturges? Sassafrass? I just don't know!
