Saturday at IDFA Documentary Fimfestival in Tuschinski Land van Aankomst (Land of Promise is the official english title, but in dutch it says Land of Arrival) of Paul Scheffer and René Roelofs. In the end they only used archive footage. The beginning was hectic and incoherent, but then I began to understand something. It was still long, almost two hours. Afterwards I heard a lot of criticism, most of which I didn’t agree with. It was just too long. Edited by Danniel Danniel, a great job.
On November 14th we wanted to go to La Grande Bellezza, but when we bought tickets for the 3 o’clock screening, it was so crowded that we left. Instead we went to Het Diner (The Dinner) of Menno Meyjes in Studio K. Not too bad for a dutch film says it all, I guess. Edited by Michiel Reichwein.
Savages (2012) of Oliver Stone is a pretty decent film. Although I wanted to go to bed last tuesday I kept on watching and it is two hours long. Good to study acting… Edited by Joe Hutshing, Stuart Levy and Alex Marquez.
Then saturday I wanted to see the beginning of Hair of Milos Forman and ended up watching the whole film. Great. Edited by Alan Heim, Lynzee Klingman and Stanley Warnow.
And then Welcome to the Dollhouse, which was okay. Edited by Alan Oxman.
Watched Happiness of Todd Solondz again. Third time? Still great, but in my memory it was even greater. Edited by Alan Oxman.
Ghost World of Terry Zwigoff, based on comic book by Daniel Clowes. A bit slow, but the story is great. Edited by Carole Kravetz Aykanian and Michael R. Miller. Fantastic opening.
Damages season 1, 2, 3 and currently watching 4. Sort of Dallas or Dynasty, same techniques, soap like, but I keep on watching, with breaks though. It’s easy to overdose on this.
Freaks and Geeks of Paul Feig. Better that Undeclared. Why was’t there another season?
Undeclared of Judd Apatow. Not that great.
