Why is everyone here jumping the bandwagon of giving a person they barely even know saint-like status?

List of screened BIFF films with mini reviews (PART ONE)
1. Always (Korea) - opening festival film. Commercial sappy melodramatic love story about a down & out former boxer / parking attendant and an almost blind girl.
2. Cut (Iran/Japan/Korea/USA/France) - An art-house film loving Japanese man who must endure being a human punching bag to pay-off his brother's debts from the Yakuza. I like this film but it needs some editing and toning down of the repeated preachy rantings & dramatic imagery in order for the general public and cinephiles to appreciate it.
3. A Legend of A Rabbit (China) - a 3D animated film that copies Kung Fu Panda. I was excited about this one but fails due to uninspired animation style and flat jokes.
4. A Fish (Korea) - a 3D film about a man searching for his missing wife. An episode from the twilight zone that didn't necesarily need the 3D format
5. My Father is Baryshnikov (Russia) - a boy from the ballet school who believes that Mikhail Baryshnikov is his father. It will easily be compared to Billy Elliott as the story is the same BUT what makes this film different is how ground & real it is. It is based on the life of the director. Easily one of my favorites.
6. Pina (Germany) - a 3D dance concert tribute film to the late choreographer Pina Bausch. A good film that didn't need the 3D format.
7. The Host 3D (Korea) - a 2005 Korean film classic superbly reformatted to 3D. A great film about family dynamics and social commentary disguised as a B-movie monster flick. Watched it as if I was seeing it for the first time :)
8. Laddaland (Thailand) - This one didn't know whether it wants to be a horror flick or a melodrama. I had high hopes for this one as it was helmed by the director of Coming Soon, one of my fave Thai horror flicks. Every scare tactic & music / sound effect was used to the hilt. Sayang.
9. To Die Like A Man (Portugal) - about an aging transgender night club diva's rocky relationship with his drug-abusing boyfriend. Wanted to like it but is was badly acted.

Feeling really down in the dumps today. This will stay until a viable, win-win solution is made. THEN I'll be "okay".

Hey Mark! I may be selling my Transformers Animated line soon. Its to fund our trip to Berlin. Not so much of a big thing if i part with them.

Here's a description of my stuff...
- On display, well-cared for, all in very good condition, cleaned regularly
- Boxes and manuals in storage
- 11 autobots - prime (voyager) , bulkhead (leader), bumblebee (deluxe), ratchet (deluxe), cybertronian ratchet (deluxe), rodimus prime (deluxe), ultra magnus (leader), sentinel prime (deluxe), ironhide (deluxe), jazz deluxe), and prowl (deluxe).

Maybe some friends of yours who collect TFA's would like them. Prices will be posted soon...

List of screened BIFF films (PART TWO)
10. Grave Encounters (Canada) - found footage of a pilot episode of a reality show that deals with ghost hunters in haunted locations. Haven't we all seen this kind before, like a decade ago. Commercially may stir some interest but won't fly due to its predictable nature.
11. ASIAN SHORTS PROGRAM (in random order)
Thug Beram (India) - winner of this year's SONJE award, equivalent of audience choice. A hearing-impaired busboy at an eatery with a secret.
I AM HAPPY (Sri Lanka) - A woman who regularly listens to a daytime radio talkshow where her letters are read by a male dj.
Curiam / Thieves (Singapore) - a father, who is struggling to provide for his little son, loses his wallet.
DIY Enthusiast (Japan) - my favorite of the group. Dark yet whimsical, funny & romantic. Tells the story of a laid-off Japanese worker filling up his spare time with do-it-yourself woodworking projects
Shelter (Indonesia) - A couple in the back of a bus, one of them is wounded.
Raw. Cooked. Burned. (Iran) - A one room set-up with multiple events that occurred in there during the course of the day, all happening at the same time.
17. A Letter to Momo (Japan) - if you liked Spirited Away, you may like this one. It tells the misadventures of a girl, coping with the recent loss of her father, who finds a letter that he wrote prior to his death. She tries to figure out what he tried to say to her as he only wrote: "Dear Momo,"

Just arrived from our 10-day stint at the Busan International Film Festival in Korea where our full-length film, NONO, had successful screenings with international audiences. Saw 17 out of 80+ films while we were there as well and did some cultural & shopping sight seeing trips on the side. Missing the fall weather there...
