A collection of my idiosyncratic thoughts & film reviews. I find spending time sitting in the dark watching far too many films back to back a deeply relaxing experience. International, Indy, Hollywood, Vampires - I have very flexible tastes...
Javier Bardem Q&A Session
The second day of films (Saturday) at Palm Springs was very good with three out of four of the films I saw being very good (or amazing). One wasn't my cup of tea - but that's still a great ratio. I'll be back with reviews later on at some point. But for now here's a taste of the post film Q&A with Javier Bardem after the festival screened Biutiful. Which is also a very good film. More on that later. For now you can enjoy some of Javier's answers - including a brief Woody Allen impersonation. Apologies for the shake and low contrast. I shot this from the fourth to the last row at the Annenberg theater. The sound seems OK which is the main point I guess. Thanks to YouTube restrictions I had to split the 17 minutes I had into two segments. The overall Q&A was around 20-25 minutes. So this is most of it.
