I’m not sure how many people still go the cinemas nowadays let alone know about the Cyprus Film Festival. Not many judging by the number of people attending the festival on the nights i went. It’s basically a week of indie, obscure and snobbish films for people who believe they are cultured, want to appear cultured, smoke in a cool way and wear glasses.
So i decided to go to a few with my friends.
La Pirogue – Suggest
The Hunt – Strong Suggest
In the House – Strong Suggest
At home I’ve also watched some of the other films screened in this festival.
Beasts of the Southern Wild – Must
Holy Motors – WTF?????
Angels’ Share – Weak Suggest
I may be insulting myself and the other people who attend these festivals and watch this kind of movies but i can tell you one positive thing for sure. I don’t like going to the movies anymore mostly because of the other people there but I enjoy watching movies with this particular crowd. They are there to watch the movie and not talk or switch on their mobile during the film.
They respect both you and the movie.
