After 4 years I was finally able to attend Austin's Fantastic Fest, an awesome week of binge watching crazy and impressive movies that will be released over the next year or so. I saw 17 films in 4 days. My favorite film was "Liza and the Fox Fairy". A Hungarian fantasy film with a 60's style Japanese beat soundtrack. Because of the attention to production detail "Liza and the Fox Fairy" gets compared to "Amelie" and while they are both great films I think the Hungarian film has a darker sense of humor and is more imaginative. Due to be released early 2016.

This blindsided me. I had no idea this was in the works. A new netflix series by the Wachowski Siblings. Co-written by J Michael Straczynski. Stars Bae Doona, Naveen Andrews, Freema Agyeman and Daryl Hannah. Looks pretty good.

Looked for a disc of this for ages but some finally some kind soul has put it up on youtube. Features a young-ish Hugh Keays-Byrne aka Toecutter/Immortan Joe
I think I have been waiting for 5 years for this movie to finish production. Shu Qi in a period martial arts film directed by the Hou Hsiao Hsien. Hopefully it will get a theatrical release this year from Well Go.
