Just curious, how much are the tickets going for for these film festivals? I just took a peak at the tix for next month's San Francisco Int. Film Festival, and the prices have gone way up since last year: $12 for regular, $10 for seniors/students, and $7.5 for matinees. That's at least $2-3 more than last year!!!

they went up here too, i think it was 8$ last year, and matinees where 6$, anyone remember? now they are 9$ and matinees are $7, no discounts for no one. unless you have a pass. 200$ for all movies, $80 for 10. I might do 2 of those. and catch 20. but then getting around adds some more $ and parking if you drive, it could sure get expensive.

Yeah, the SF fest is going to hurt this year since I'm anticipating they'll have a lot to tempt me.

As for the films, I've seen The Agronomist (decent - see it if you like Docus or Demme), Imelda (surprisingly funny) and The Man Who Copied (Very Good - in fact it won an award at the recent San Jose festival.)

Also heard good things about The Story of the Weeping Camel but I missed it.

sorry to hijack this threat a little but any comments on the following, these are on my mostly sure list.

The legend of evil lake
man who copied
double agent
memories of murder
the park
bimmer
debutants
utopia
time of the wolf (it was mentioned in the international forum)
five obstructions
the tesseract
mortadelo and filemon
azumi
carandiru
dragon head
the uninvited
who killed bambi.... and
moon child.

I think i will be able to mix and match about 18 i want to see for just under $140 so is not too bad with as little as paying for transportation or parking. For those of you in SF, do they list the movie titles in english only or also in their original language. Ih here they do the original language on the movie description once you click on the movie, but for some, i'm sure many people might only know the names in their original language, that was the case for me for some of the italian and french ones. It takes too much time to go through 250 films.

That it is my friend. I've never seen any of his movies but I'm intrigued now. As for beyond valley of the dolls, it was high on my list but once I did my little calendar i had to take it off since there was something else at that time that i wanted to see.

My ratings of several of the films shown:

Young Adam 3/10
The Saddest Music in the World 7/10
Facing Window 7/10
Last Life in the Universe 6/10
Tales of Two Sisters - have DVD, haven't watched yet.

In other words, I definitely recommend "Facing Windows" and "Saddest Music in the World".
You can see more detailed reviews of each on my website.

I'll be seeing these soon:

Azumi
Time of the Wolf
Reconstruction
A Thousand Months
Tulse Luper Suitcases: TheMoab Story
The Kite
Good Morning, Night
Distant
Vibrator
A Talking Picture

I also recommend:

The Five Obstructions
Everyday People (McKay's last film was excellent)
Super size Me

Now that the Phila Film Fest is underway, I'm curious how many in this forum have actually been going.

So far I've seen six of the movies:

Bimmer
The Park
Josee, the Tiger, and the Fish
Nine Souls
Double Agent
The Man who Copied


The Park was the big disappointment in that it's in 3D (alas, only in parts) but I found the 3D effects weren't nearly as good as the other 3D movies I've seen (a small group, to be sure).

The Man who Copied has been the biggest revelation so far. Loved it.

I've been to bimmer, the park, double agent, and man who copied, legend of evil lake, godforsaken, memories of murder. and man who copied was excellent. double agent was ok-good but then the end made it a very good to great. bimmer was great in my opinion. I knew the park would suck but damn. Considering we've been to many of the same films. you might have seen me. I was the huge Puerto Rican. its hard to miss me. What else are you going to see. I got about 12 more before is all over.

I have tix to another 20 or so, and there are a few more that I want to see (but not sure if I'll have the stamina).

Bimmer I liked, but didn't love. I thought Double Agent was better.

Today I'll be at Saddest Music in the World and Slasher. Tomorrow, Valentin, I'm Not Scared, The End of a Mystery, The 4th Floor, and Mortadelo & Filemón: The Big Adventure (busy, busy day).

I'll keep my eyes out for you. I'm the one with the glasses, the beard, the blue Phillies cap, and the Guinness windbreaker who is usually sitting in the first three rows.
