One of the wonderful things about being a Film Festival Volunteer usher is that you get to see a whole lot of films. Some of the ushers have taken time off work, and are seeing 4 or 5 films a day. My 11 films so far (in under a week) is paltry compared to some. Anyway, because we ushers are seeing so many films, we get to recommend what films are worth seeing. So here are a few films to keep an eye on*:
- Tree Of Life**
- Cave Of Forgotten Dreams (3D)
- Another Earth
- The Trip
- The Man From Nowhere
- 13 Assassins
- Martha Marcy May Marlene
- The Black Power Mixtape: 1969-75
- Fire In Babylon (that’s my recommendation)
And Films I’ve yet to see, but I’m majorly looking forward to…
Which films have you seen? Which would you recommend?
**Note ‘Tree Of Life’ is very polarising: either you’ll love it or loathe it. If you haven’t heard of Terence Malick, or don’t like slow or confusing films, then you might want to avoid it. Or see it. But don’t complain if you didn’t get it.
