Anyone at Berlin? over 1 year ago
i was at berlinale this year! still can’t believe it! my plan to visit all of the major film festivals in the next few years is working, yay! as far as films go, i was completely blown away by greek :meteora:. it reminded me of sergei parajanov a lot. stunningly beautiful images, with some outstanding animation in between. the film was so beautiful it made me cry! i was walking around berlin for a few hours after, it was a grey, muddy day and i had this unmatched feeling of happiness that only film gives me! another good one was spanish :delay:. reminded me of kieslowski a lot because of its moral ambiguity. i lucked out and got a ticket to the sold out guy maddin’s new film :keyhole: and it was as nightmarish and bizarre and funny as his other films. it was a perfect ending to my festival!
and the retrospective of early soviet cinema :red dream factory: was truly outstanding. saw :aelita: and :outskirt: and want to see more of the films from that time.
