I utilized the EIFF’s videotheque to check out the above titles.  While I was bored during parts of The Hunter I would look around at what other people were watching.  One guy was just loving his film, but I couldn’t figure out what it was.  I was delighted to see a lot of people watch Au Revoir Taipei and HIGH School.

The person next to me was watching Snowman’s Land and after seeing an old man run in the snow in slow-motion and someone about to (what looked like) get their foot chopped off, I was curious how it all fit together (and figured it would be better than what I just watched).

If you’re in the Edinburgh area this weekend, you should try to get tickets for the Best of the Fest.  On Sunday they’ll screen a selection of films from the festival and some of my favorites will be showing.  So now that you’ve read my reviews, you can check out Monsters, Au Revoir Taipei, Jackboots on Whitehall, or The People vs George Lucas.  Click here for Sunday’s films.
