Tomorrow I will be heading to Melbourne for a 17 day film extravaganza. The Melbourne International Film Festival (or MIFF to close and personal friends) is my annual sabbatical of film. I have booked 61 films, from revisits of Starstruck and Shame to new films by Lanthimos, Potter and Denis. My aim is to see and review three films a day so hold on to your wigs and live the MIFF life with me.
If you are heading to MIFF yourself, let me know and we can untuck together in the Illusions (or Festival) Lounge. If you know of a film in the program that you think I should see, name it in the comments below with your best argument for me rearranging my schedule to fit it in. Because busy my schedule is. Coffee. Film. Review. Film. Beer. Review. Nap. Film. Film. Death drop.
