The last week and a half has been a whirlwind of movies (up to 6 a day) drink (up to 10 a day) and chats with the kind of people that can really get you somewhere (up to 1 a day, I’m shy). I am ,of course, referring to the Edinburgh International Film Festival.
It really has been a feast of the best cinema around. From the Jeanne Moreau retrospective (which led me to the most extreme cinema experience ever) to a wealth of documentary and features from all over the world.
As it’s past midnight I’ll refrain from banging on and let the film do the talking. The trailer below is for MAN ON WIRE (2008 ) which for me has been the zenith of breathtaking documentary. The rumour is that this film will be getting a release, if you notice it in a cinema near you, GO SEE IT. Normal service will be resumed in the next few days.
