A mixed bag of goodies
26 September 2011 | by itamarscomixSee all my reviews

As is to be expected from this kind of movie, it has its ups and downs. Some of the participating directors - pointing out Cronenberg, Salles, Polanski, Von Trier and Assayas as my personal favorites - did a remarkable job creating these three-minute-long tributes to cinema. A few of the movies are overtly pretentious, a few are just boring, and a couple - rolling my eyes towards Mr. Van Sant - were extremely disappointing works from excellent directors. Overall though, the majority of the films are enjoyable, and that alone is an impressive achievement. And even the weaker ones are short and varied enough to not be too demanding. I definitely recommend it for any film buff.
