Turn out the lights

The fest is over. By the time we left our last movie tonight there were only two screenings left to go. Here, then, is our list of movies, ranked by my rating:

  • Kurt Cobain: About A Son (9/10)
  • Day Night Day Night (9/10)
  • Blindsight (9/10)
  • Fay Grim (8.5/10)
  • The Wind That Shakes The Barley (8/10)
  • Requiem (7.5/10)
  • Rescue Dawn (7/10)
  • Outsourced (7/10)
  • Citizen Duane (6.5/10)
  • The Pleasure Of Your Company (6/10)
  • The Half Life of Timofey Berezin (5.5/10)
  • Diggers (5/10)
  • Candy (2/10)

Five of those films I’d classify as excellent and one as shit; the rest range from mildly disappointing to pretty good. Only a handful of them will ever play in wide circulation — probably The Pleasure Of Your Company and maybe The Wind That Shakes The Barley — while the rest will play the indie circuit if at all. Still, if you ever have a chance to see any of the first 10 on this list, I’d recommend it.
