SIFF Movies

Haven't gotten to writing about all the movies I've gone to over the past few weeks. I'm not much of a movie critic. And anyway, many of the movies I've seen might not get released here so what's the point suggesting them?

The thing I've come to know recently, and perhaps this is widely known, is that many filmmakers rely on personal financing to make their movies. For example, I heard at a SIFF screening, the Korean director of Breathless sold home to make his movie. And I found out on Adam Carolla's Podcast, even Francis Ford Coppola, who is the director of the #1 movie of all time, still has to personally finance his own movies. He himself financed his latest movie, Tetro.

This year we saw a lot of documentaries. Usually we pack the schedule with Asian movies and then we never see them.

List of movies seem: (I think one short film block is missing from here…)
