Hey, these guys are great! Their friends of my girlfriend's and I saw this as a staged reading here in San Francisco before they began shooting last summer. It was really cool. They've got some character acter guy (forget his name) from several of the Coen Bros movies and it's pretty damn funny. This project lived at Miramax for a long time many years ago, but never saw the day of light, until the light of day in the form of INDEPENDENT film production made it a reality. Check it out!

Some of the coolest pics are up the street from Sundance at the nearly institutionally (seems like an institution sometimes!) recognized, "other fest" known as SLAMDANCE. The pics are often just as slick, oftentimes not, but very often SUPER COOL. I was lucky enough to screen there back in 1999. My CAGED had great reviews to being called the "Worst film at SLAMDANCE" in 1998 by... Oh, I forgot that rags name. Was in print, now only online I think... Anyway-- I'll be back.

Although I'm from Iceland I'm not very fond of Icelandic movies, which are mostly worthless pieces of crap. 101 Reykjavik is not. It is a hilarious film and you won't be sorry for seeing it. And Moriarty didn't mention The Cell, how odd...

If it's the same version that screened at the Toronto Film Fest, don't miss CHOPPER! This will probably be your only chance to see it uncut, because the version I saw would probably have to be toned down to avoid an NC-17 rating. Simply incredible performance by Eric Bana ... Chopper is one TWISTED MF! Greatest "scum" performance by an Aussie since Russell Crowe in ROMPER STOMPER!

I checked out their site www.wildatstart.com and it appears to be a pretty decently shot documentary. As a fan of docs and from being associated with failed startups I'll definitely take an interest.

I saw this film at the Icelandic film festival at the American Cinematheque last year and it was by far the most brilliant and original film of the whole festival. A lot of people would label this film as the "Icelandic Pulp Fiction," and in a sense, they're true. I think the reason why this is opinion is circulated within the people i know saw the film, is because by the end, you have this "OH!!! I get it!" type of reaction. And which film other than "Pulp Fiction" caused that in the last 10 years? (please don't say "The Sixth Sense")
