More to Play at Berlin
I don't quite understand The Berlin International Film Festival's method of announcing films that will screen this year in minor waves. I posted about the first bunch a while ago, after they announced that Tom Tykwer's The International will be the opener. Now with their second wave (or is it third? Did I miss one?), it's certain that new films by two of my favorite young directors will be making their debut at the fest. The first was Lukas Moodysson (Lilja 4-ever, A Hole in My Heart) with Mammoth, and now Andrew Bujalski (Mutual Appreciation, Funny Ha Ha) is bringing his latest, Beeswax. You can find the rest of the titles announced this time round at IndieWire; the rest should be revealed soon. Anyone wanna fly me to Germany?
