- RT @djuna01: 감독의 가족사를 다루었다고 합니다. 이 영화의 주인공 부부가 부모이고 아들이 형이라고. 감독 자신은 태국의 난민 캠프에 태어났대요. 크메르 루즈 정권 당시 나라를 떠난 사람들이 50만명이나 되었다고요. 9 minutes ago
- RT @djuna01: 올해 Biaf에서 본 영화는 단 한 편. 푸난이었어요. 막 상영이 끝났습니다. 종교적 광기에 희생된 아시아 국가 사람들을 그린 서구 애니메이션이니 [페르세폴리스]도 생각나고 [브레드위너]도 생각나고. 단지 여기서 그 종교적 광… 9 minutes ago

- RT @function_not: 전형적으로 매스미디어가 과도하게 부풀려놓았지만 실제로는 전혀 중요하지 않은 상황을 그 누구에게도 직접적으로 면박을 주지 않으면서 몇 마디 말로 해결하고 그 과정에서 자기를 살짝 낮추지만 ‘참고’하는 거지 다 맞다는 것… 21 minutes ago

Dear Roger It is almost a year since I received the e-mail notifying me of your death, and I and others are still thinking of you while missing you a lot. At the end of last year, many people wondered … Continue reading
In case of some people, you miss them dearly when you are apart from them, but then you remember how unpleasant they can be when you are near them. I do not know much about Tom Dark, whom I met … Continue reading
“So on this day of reflection I say again, thank you for going on this journey with me. I’ll see you at the movies.” – from Roger Ebert’s last blog entry “A Leave of Presence”
The last day of Ebertfest finally came, but it was still happy to be get together with others. The last movie of the festival, “Song Sung Blue”, is the documentary about the human spirit. Mike and Claire Sardina, as Lightening and Thunder, had been wonderful performers on the stages. Maybe their acts were not original(Mike sang Neil Diamond songs, and Claire did the songs of Patsy Cline, Blondies, and ABBA), but they were popular with people in Milwaukee and you can see why from their performances in video footage. Even if you don’t have much interest in these songs, they would draw your attentions with the joy of singing. And they were good singers.
Day 4 was for four movies. Due to the lack of sleep, I was in the worst condition, so I didn’t react well to “I Captured the Castle”. But I enjoyed Q & A just like others and I promised myself that I will check this movie again someday even if I can’t write anything about movies for a while. Continue reading
Delirium continued to reign on Day 3 and another “the lamb to the slaughter” situation started for us early in the morning. After saying goodbye to Michael Philips at Breakfast room, I went into Pine Lounge on the 1st floor with my friends. Along with them, I was about to participate in panel discussion titled “The Global Web of Film Lovers”. Thanks to Roger’s blessing and Omer’s deft moderation, we went through well and 70 minutes was shorter than I thought. The video clip is available on here, but I do not want to kill myself by watching it.
I was afraid of Day 2 because I would be on the stage as one of panelists for the first movie of that day, “Munyurangabo”, directed by Issac Chung, Korean-American director from Arkansas. Continue reading
