Philly Cinefest 2009 Wrap-Up


So 11 days and 50 films later, here I sit trying to make sense of it all. There are a few great films, a few horrible films, and many in between. I’ll keep things short and give you a list of the ones worth seeking out. In no particular order:

  • Not Quite Hollywood
  • Goodbye Solo
  • The Desert Within
  • The Hurt Locker
  • Burning Plain
  • Rudo y Cursi
  • Jury Duty
  • The Joy of Singing
  • Landscape #2
  • Don’t Look Down
  • Revanche

Only 11! Well, there were some other good films, but these stood above the rest.

As for me, I need a little break. I think I’ll take a week off before I post again. I have gorged myself and expurgated some rather slapdash reviews. These film festival binges are good ways to find diamonds in the rough, but I really need to get back to “Quality over Quantity” mode. Both in watching and reviewing films.  So next time you hear from me it will be with, hopefully, a more thoughtfully written and insightful entry.

In the meantime, I’m sure LCD will conjure up some remarkable prose for your reading enjoyment. Don’t be afraid. He’ll be gentle.
