A very crowded week, and actually am a bit exhausted right now. On Monday, Sept. 17, it was the start of the New York Film festival press screenings. Also the IFP Market and Conference swung into action. I'm still trying to process the Market, because it's a very difficult time now for the idea of independent theatrical releases, especially for documentary.

Films seen at the NY Film Festival: Julian Schnabel's "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly", Masayuki suo's "I Just Didn't Do It", Wes Anderson's "Hotel Chevalier" and "The Darjeeling Limited" (the short is the prelude to the feature), the short "Chinese Whispers" and Eric Rohmer's "The Romance of Astree and Celadon", Sidney Lumet's "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead", the short "Saturday's Shadow" and Claude Charbol's "A Girl Cut in Two", Robert Beaver's "Pitcher of Colored Light" and Peter Hutton's "At Sea", and Ira Sachs's "Married Life".

More later....
