More MIFF Reviews
A couple days, a couple more movies.
I saw The War Tapes last night. The producers gave three American Army infantry video cameras and had them tape their time in Iraq. The result is a complex, funny, terrifying and sad portrait of the men and the misadventure that is the Iraq war.
Commenter Alan asks if anyone knows where to get the MIFF movies on DVD, etc. I’m not sure, but I’d highly recommend getting your hands on The War Tapes if at all possible; it’s not showing again at MIFF, unfortunately.
I also saw Lake of Fire, which which attempts to give both/all sides a voice in the abortion debate in America. It was good, though overly long. Despite his attempt to air anti-abortion viewpoints, the director is clearly in the other camp. I don’t know if I’d like it if it didn’t support my politics.
Lake of Fire screens again on Monday the 6th at 9:10pm at ACMI. Purchase tickets here.
I’ll be at After the Wedding tonight (7pm, Forum). It comes recommended, but it does play again on the 12th, so I’ll give you a better review afterwards.
