Philadelphia Film Festival: Final Thoughts

Well, it’s been a fun and exhausting 11 days.  I’ve seen some amazing films and some truly terrible ones.  And even though I’m exhausted now, in two weeks I’ll miss it and wish the festival was back on again.  Thank you Andrew Greenblatt, Jared Miller, and all the folks at the Philadelphia Film Society for putting on a fun 11 days.  (Too bad the Phillies in the playoffs killed attendance.)  I enjoyed myself as always and will forgive you all for programming some terrible films if you’ll forgive me for trashing them.
By the way, everyone in the Philly area should consider becoming a member of the Philadelphia Film Society at  Your membership gets you year-round free advance screenings for two to lots of big, upcoming films, as well as tickets and passes to next year’s film festival.  The membership pays for itself after just attending a few of the free advance screenings.  It’s the best deal in town.  Alright, enough plugs for the PFS.  Below is a quick summary of the films I saw and my grades:
