Here comes the Hype Train! Chicago Film Festival time!

You know how wet I get when I start talking film and shit. But today, I’ve creamed myself twice.

Anyway, it’s that time of year again. Time for us to pack AMC River East and get cultured the fuck up. The lineup from this year is one of the best I’ve EVER seen at a film festival. Problem with that is simple the fact that I can’t do them all. I’m not Dr. Manhattan.

Another thing that’s really exciting me is the fact that most of these films aren’t even American. It’s always a good study to see how different cultures do shit, filmmaking is no different in that matter.

Here are my picks for the festival.

10. Smuggler

9. We Need to Talk About Kevin

8. The Yellow Sea

7. Love Actually… Sucks.

6. Juan of the Dead

5. A Dangerous Method

4.  Machete Language

3. George the Hedgehog

2. Melancholia

1. Shorts 4: In N’ Out

A series of shorts based on unconventional love. You know I’m there…clip from Venus.

 

It’s going to be pretty epic if you ask me. Time to go now. See you all at the Festival. 😀
