Yeah, wouldn't it be great if instead of the weekly mindless products churned out by the Hollywood machine, the whole world gets to watch, say, the latest Hou film on the same day. (That'd never happen, but we can still dream, can't we?!)
I have a 5 year rule with new releases, so that's why a film like Le Chignon d'Olga, which had its world premiere back in 2002, qualified since it showed up in the U.S. this year.
Looking forward to your thoughts on Three Times. I hope you get to watch it on the big-screen; if not, Artificial-Eye wil put it out on DVD on Nov 13th.
