Movie Reviews

For the past several years, I have written short reviews of every movie I saw during the Seattle International Film Festival. I see 50-odd movies during each 3 1/2-week festival, so this keeps me busy! Here are the 1996, 1997 and 1998 reviews. I will work on improving the format.

Be warned that the shorts which accompanied these films during the festival will probably not be present anywhere other than this festival. Do not expect to see them on video or at your local theatre.
