Yesterday was the first day of press screenings, taking place a day before the official kick-off of the Edinburgh International Film Festival. The day’s highlights:
*Something’s creepy in Two Eyes Watching
*Dwarves are packing serious heat in The Last Rites of Ransom Pride
*and Robin Williams is the World’s Greatest Dad, which might be one of the fest’s best.
I also want to thank friend and reader Gideon for his $20.00 donation. He will receive a copy of my DVD (5 shorts for $5) and amazing internet fame for being publicly mentioned on my blog. Thank you very much Gideon, it was a welcome surprise.
Meanwhile, his hard earned money will go toward feeding this hungry film critic between screenings. Seriously, yesterday I only had time for a bowl of cereal, two bananas, and coffee from 8am-9pm.
reviews to come:
The People vs. George Lucas, Evil in the Time of Heroes, Red Hill, and The Illusionist.
