What about Joe's latest, Syndromes and a Century?

Jeremy Heilman said...

I certainly want to see Syndromes... perhaps more than any other film playing @ TIFF this year... but I'll be seeing it at the New York Film Festival in October.

Hi Jeremy - will be very interesting to hear your thoughts on Falkenberg Farewell. Not only because it's Swedish or because it doesn't look like much else (even though comparisons to Malick, von Trier, Van Sant, Ming-liang and I vitelloni have been made), but because Jesper, the guy who made it, happens to be a good friend of mine, and we're all really excited about it getting screened at TIFF (and in Venice, this weekend).

I love Malick, von Trier, Van Sant, Tsai and Fellini, but I love them all in very different ways. It's pretty difficult to imagine a film that would warrant comparisons to the work of all five of them, but exciting nonetheless. The Venice reviews of FF I've seen were very strong.

At this point, I only hope the Toronto ticketing lottery cooperates with me. :)
