Interesting. I've seen (and loved) the former but hadn't heard of the latter. Do you recommend it?
I can't recommend it, no. I think it fails at a fundamental level. This is what I wrote at the time. But as I note in that review, I particularly recommend this piece by Miriam Bale talking about both movies. If you don't mind reading up on a movie before watching it, I think it will give you a better idea of if you want to go through with it.

Funny, it appears that I upvoted your original review but I must have forgotten. (It's been a long year). I'll check out the article.

Yes, yes it has.



The trick is not minding
Nearing the finish line on this, and next year I’ll go with what everyone else had done and crowd source favorites, if it’s an option again that is. There were a few that I was really interested in that haven’t had the chance to see yet, mainly Short Term 12.

Jabs, how’s next years challenge looking?

Just have one film left. Will get to it either tonight or tomorrow.
Either way, I wonder if Jabs intends to run this again for next year?

I'll kill anyone who get's in the way of me killin
My final tally was pretty dismal across the board for my first-time participation.
Though I do very much wish to attempt to finish this in the coming month or so or perhaps find homes for the next movie challenge for the ones listed I did not get to.

Just wanted to acknowledge our host, if I haven't done so already. This was a lot of fun and it forced me to watch some stuff I'd not have considered otherwise.
Same here. Good stuff and I'm looking forward to this year's challenge. In particular I want to note that I watched Kanał and Close-Up just for this and they were a couple of my favorite films from the year.

Same in terms of Kanal and, yeah, it was great!



Also answers to Jabba
Thank you all for your kind words!
I am happy you appreciate the effort and that the challenge has helped you discover good films that might have otherwise flown under your radar.
