Film Festival movies

The Guard

Did you see In Bruges? Did you like it? Then you should see this. Brendan Gleeson stars as the man cop in very small town Ireland and Don Cheadle is an FBI agent who comes over to put an end to an International drug ring. I don’t want to say too much here, but it’s funny and I’m keen to see it again. It is screening at the Embassy and Reading now, so hop along.

The Women on the 6th Floor

I like French films, pretentious boring French films. But I just couldn’t quite get behind this story of a married man finding joy and love outside of his marriage. Might just be a wife-bias I have, I don’t know. There were lots of good moments in this movie, but the story didn’t hang together very well and Lee and I both felt it lacked something important. Maybe…a plot? A likeable lead actor? I don’t know.

Troll Hunter

Norwegian students make a documentary about a guy who they think is a bear poacher. Actually he’s employed by the Norwegian goverment to monitor the massive trolls that are kept in preserves and National parks. It was freaking awesome. Watch the trailer.

Obviously, the Norwegian government doesn’t want this getting out, but we saw the truth at the Film Festival! We saw it!
