After the festival is before the festival: I just – barely – managed to finish my coverage of this years /slash filmfestival – preludes and codas and all – and today the biggest austrian filmfestival, the Viennale, starts. My plan is to release 1-2 reviews every day, starting tomorrow, but since things are getting more stressful at work (thus I’ll only take 2 days off during the festival), the fact that I’ll spend most of my spare time over the next two weeks sitting in a movie theatre, as well as my obligations for my other (german) site fictionBOX, I can’t promise that I’ll actually be able to follow my desired schedule. Anyway, whenever they’ll actually be ready, you can expect to get reviews for the following movies (in alphabetical order) over the course of the next couple of weeks:
52 Tuesdays, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, Amour Fou, Arrete Ou Je Continue (If You Don’t, I Will), Bande Des Filles (Girlhood), Bird People, Birdman, Buzzard, Calvary, Clouds of Sils Maria, Deo Te-Reo La-I-Beu (The Terror Live), Deux Jours Une Nuit, Dolares De Arena (Sand Dollars), Frank, Fury*, Ghesseha (Tales), Happy Christmas, Heaven Knows What, Jauja, Jigoku De Naze Warui (Why Don’t You Play In Hell?), Kuime (Over Your Dead Body), La Chambre Bleue (The Blue Room), Les Combattants, Listen Up Philip, Love Is Strange, Macondo, Matar A Un Hombre (To Kill A Man), Olive Kitteridge, Pas Son Genre (Not My Type), Phoenix, Sorg Og Glaede (Sorrow and Joy), Stimmen (Voices), Timbuktu, Time Lapse, Turist (Force Majeure), We Come As Friends, Whiplash.
* = assuming my guess for this years surprise movie is correct.
37 movies in 15 days is not quite as intense as 35 movies in 10 days (as was the case for me as this years /slash), but still, it’ll be quite a ride. Hope you’ll stick with me ’til the end!
