I will probably post reviews for some of the others movies that I saw, but in some cases I either did not like or dislike the movie enough to spend any time writing about it afterwords.
Best stuff that I saw (I did not see Precious or the Topp Twins)
Best dramatic film – Balibo. It will make you cry unless you are totally dead inside. And even then you might squeeze out a tear or two.
Best documentary – Waking Sleeping Beauty. I still can’t believe that they might have cut ‘Part of your world’ out of The Little Mermaid.
Funniest Movie – Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. Amoral is the new black. Watching this movie made me wish they had an Oscar category for dark comedies.
Breaking the curse of my bad French picks: Partir. I’m not sure if this really counts as breaking the streak of bad French movies I’ve seen at the festival, since the leads are Kristin Scott Thomas (Britain) and Sergi López (Catalan/Spain).
Sure thing that lived up to expectations – Up in the Air. Love Jason Reitman.
