I posted about the NYAFF this time last year, and that entry is still on the front page! Oh facebook and twitter, how you have robbed personal blogs of material.
Here’s the festival trailer for 2010 (best enjoyed full-screen, right-click and Watch on YouTube):
This year I’m committed to:
- Yatterman, 25th June. Takashi Miike doing weird comic-book stuff. I may have a ‘doctor’s appointment’ to make this screening.
- IP Man 2, 25th June. Big-budget kung fu epic, the opening film.
- IP Man, 26th June. This was a huge hit apparently.
- Storm Warriors, 27th June. Completely over the top, stylised manga action.
- Pink Power, 2nd July. Yes, this is basically porn.
- Short film programmes 2nd and 3rd July. They reckon the production values are high on these wee films.
- Symbol, 4th July. Proper madness, hopefully like Funky Forest from 2006.
- Ancient Dogoo Girl, 4th July. Story: hero discovers clay figurine and unleashes girl-demon with magic boobs. Yes, totally insane.
- Hanging Garden, 6th July. Bit of class here.
- Electric Button, 7th July. Looks titillating.
- Castaway on the Moon, 7th July. Nice premise, dude is stranded on an island in the middle of a city.
- King of Thorn, 11th July. Anime! Aliens!
- Nightmare Detective 2, 14th July. Ah, dream-based psychological horror.
- Memories of Matsuko, 15th July. Happy musical action to finish off.
Come join me in the madness!
