- Film Festival
I just got back from Korea where the longstanding Puchon International Fantastic Festival is serving up some of the greatest new genre titles from around the world. Among the big events here, there were packed houses for films from Asia like Doomsday Book, an anthology featuring top Korea directors like PFF alum Kim Ji-Woon who made A Tale of Two Sisters and The Good, The Bad and the Weird.
Aging – without proper retirement funds, without a spouse, needing a hip replacement, feeling too old to be desirable, put out to pasture, needing closure with a person you fell in love with over 40 years ago. These are all rather depressing subjects; yet, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is anything but depressing. It's lively, humorous and quick-witted.
Although you'd expect nothing less from such a stellar cast of veterans: Dame Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie and Ronald Pickup.
Having recently returned from my annual trip to the Sundance Film Festival, which marks the beginning of the programming season for the Philadelphia Film Festival (PFF), I wanted to share some of my favorite films.
All in all, over my roughly five days in Park City, Utah, I was able to check out 24 films, many of which I enjoyed. Coincidentally, I’m sure, a lot of my personal favorites had nice Philly or PFF ties.
