Yesterday was LIFFe Day Eight, which means we’re two-thirds of the way through with the 24th Ljubljana International FilmFest. In case you missed something or are just now checking in, below is a quick recap of what’s appeared on Piran Café over the past 96 hours.
– A Look at Romania’s One Percenters in ‘Child’s Pose’
– Comrade Kim Goes Flying – a Three-Minute Review
– Behind Jafar Panahi’s ‘Closed Curtain’
– ‘Filth’ in 60 Seconds
– ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ – For Vampire Flicks, an Elegant and Welcome Infusion of Fresh Blood
– 90-Second Reviews – Young & Beautiful
Yesterday I caught ‘A Highjacking‘ and Bruce Dern in ‘Nebraska‘, and late this morning Shane Carruth’s surrealistic thriller ‘Upstream Color‘, all excellent selections, if I do say so myself. Tonight it’s a trip to Santiago with ‘Gloria‘. And then another six or seven over the next three days before I give my eyes and psyche a rest. I’ll be catching up with reviews over the next few weeks.
And finally, here’s a recap posted four days ago of the festival’s first four days which includes links to five reviews and some festival-related features.
