VIFF 2005 — movie-going schedule

Oh my. The Vancouver Int’l Film Festival begins tomorrow, and I haven’t even finished sorting out which films I will see, and when. Let it be known, then, that this list may be revised often over the next two weeks, as I try to squeeze in as many films as I can around church, Bible study, Thanksgiving dinners, and paying work. Potential scheduling clashes will be marked in italics; and any films I do not see, in the end, will be deleted from this list. Any articles I write shall be linked to from here. And as I blog each film I see, I shall link to those posts from the titles listed here.

    Silent Holy Stones is amazingly slow, even for a film about monks… I wouldn’t miss another movie to see it. Well, I’d pass on So Much Rice in its favour, but that’s not saying much.

    I’ve only written about 2/3 of the films I’ve seen so far, but the list of them is here:
