MIFF 2011 Day Four

Resurrect Dead: The Mystery of the Toynbee Tiles
IN Kubrick's 2001
This was a doco I picked on a whim. It turned out to be quite interesting and enjoyable. The trail the doco makers followed, the clues they found and the conclusions they came up with when putting the pieces together on this mystery made for good viewing. The Toynbee tiles in on themselves I found intriguing.
Worst film of the day – Detroit Wild City. Well actually the 20 min short, The Future Will not be Capitalist that screen with this was worse, so overall it just was not a good session.
I was hoping for some inspiration for an upcoming Tribe 8 game I’m going to attempt to run. “In Truth”” (something from an annoying vic roads ad that was screened constantly last year at MIFF and has screened a couple of times this year. Who uses this expression in conversation now a days anyway?) I was overall disappointed with this doco. Was hoping for a bit more on communities adapting/converting/taking over the ruined and abandoned factories and other buildings but it only showed a couple of groups setting up small vege gardens.
Best film of the day – The Unjust. South Korean thriller with lots of twists and turns. A couple were a bit flimsy and one or two things that happened I assume would make more sense if II was more familiar with South Korean culture, so I just accepted them as a given. Johnnie found some of the twists too flimsy for his liking.
