29th Cambridge film festival

The program is out -- and this year I could barely get into high single figures for things I'd want to see. So much stuff on offer is reflex leftist narrative, anti-intellectual (but I repeat myself), implausible relationship drama, miserablist, schlock or some combination of the above. The bulk of what I'll be putting down for is from the various revival strands, the few others all foreign, including a Korean vampire movie.

They seem to have stopped doing any anime -- when I would have expected either Ponyo or Rebuild 1.x to have been on the program -- and the only animation is one claymation and a series of shorts.

All in all, my conclusion is "Son, I am disappoint."
