Normally for film festivals I list the films I plan to watch, and then write reviews a few days later. This year I plan to use this space to list my top choice of film for the day, as well as right short reviews in advance of the films. I gave myself one simple rule: solely one film per day.
Friday, April 26th
Easy pick for the first night of the festival–there was only one choice. That being said, it is a good choice.
Saturday, April 27th
My vote for the best film of the festival.
Sunday, April 28th
Interior. Leather Bar
Yes, that is James Franco filming two guys getting it on. No, Interior. Leather Bar is not what you think. Teamed with Travis Matthews’ In Their Room (London), both documentaries ask thought provoking questions of what is and what is not OK to show the movie going audience and why.
Monday, April 29th
A documentary about a transgender porn star; definitely something you have not seen before.
Tuesday, April 30th
That’s Anarchy in Zirmunai for the Lithuanian illiterate–like me.
Wednesday, May 1st
My #9 Best Film of 2012
Thursday, May 2nd
Raid of the Rainbow Lounge
The amazing thing about this documentary is that it depicts events that only happened in 2009.
Friday, May 3rd
Saturday, May 4th
Men’s Shorts Program
An eclectic mix of drama, comedy, fiction, and short-doc.
Sunday, May 5th
The second best film of the festival.
