It's Sunday night and I've been so flat out that I've not collated my Week in Review for this week, nor for the last. But hey, it's the lead up to MIFF, the busiest time of the year. I've got parent teacher interviews tomorrow night, but hopefully I'll get something up soon. If not, c'est la vie !

[Edit]: I should mention that one of the films I saw was Jim Jarmusch's The Limits of Control. I find it odd that it opens next Thursday, on the eve of MIFF. Many of the film's target audience will consequently be otherwise engaged but hopefully won't miss this gem, possibly my favourite cinema release of the year so far. More to come...

Can't wait for Limits Of Control. The distributers must complete idiots to release it the day before MIFF.

I suppose, Stamos, that the distributors have to consider the whole calendar. The festival season in Australia is so drawn out with Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. There's about 1/4 of the year taken up and meanwhile releases have to get out there. It's a bummer for Melbournians on this occasion. Anyway, I hope it gets a look in from Melbournians, because it's an excellent film.
