2002 NYUFF Reviews
My apologies to Lynne Sachs. I had to step out of a screening of her Investigation of a Flame to go watch a demonstration by Fred Phelps’ anti-gay group.
In Our Garden is an outrageous and offensive directing tour-de-force by Giuseppe Andrews. A film of untold brilliance that batters the audience senseless.
Cul De Sac: A Suburban War Story is a moving documentary directed by Garrett Scott about Shawn Nelson, who went on a tank rampage in San Diego years ago.
Vladimir Gyorski’s Resin attempts to be a stinging indictment of California’s “Three Strikes” law, filmed using the production theories of Dogme 95.
Josh Koury’s documentary Standing By Yourself taught me a new verb: “tussin,” which is the act of swallowing a whole bottle of cough syrup to get high.
The Atlas Moth is a sequel of sorts to the documentary Driver 23, both directed by Rolf Belgum. Both films are about forever aspiring hard-rock band Dark Horse.
Horns and Halos by filmmakers Suki Hawley and Michael Galinsky is the controversial documentary surrounding the George W. Bush biography Fortunate Son.
