Happy weekend, readers!
2016 is off to a flying start with lots of movies with lots being released and in all genres but so far nothing I have written about has grabbed me as something to track down at international festivals. Speaking of festivals, I have three to write about and quite urgently. The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme, Brick Lane Japanese Film Festival, and Rotterdam International Film Festival are all launching soon and I haven’t written a word despite having done the research. A combination of Fallout 4 (20 hours – too many since video games are procrastination – clocked since January 03rd) and mismanaged time has seen me let my schedule slip. Apologies. I also started helping out with film festivals and getting a bit more work. I can’t apologise for that because I enjoy helping out with film festivals 😉
What did I post this week? A review for the Takeshi Kitano film Hana-bi which I awarded 5/5 for the great story and fantastic visuals. It is on Blu-ray and has been released by Third Window Films.
