Six-Word Reviews

Posted by Ryan Michael Decker on Sunday, April 7, 2013
Hello everyone out there in interwebsland!  This evening concludes day three of the second annual Julien Dubuque International Film Festival.  I would like to use this opportunity to both encourage you attend festival screenings and wax eloquently on all the films I saw today.  However, it's been a long three days and sleep is coming swiftly and severely for this Film Festival-goer/volunteer/writer.  Words are hard and publishing is fast, so again, please forgive my brevity and grammatical errors.

While I hope to post about today's films and events more completely in the future, I'm afraid I am simply not coherent enough at the end of this long day to do them justice.  So instead, I've set out to collect "Six-Word Reviews" from my fellow (cognizant) film-goers.  I asked them to share what their favorite film (or event) of the day was, and get you to attend in six words.  Here's a few of them:

"Outrageous. Hilarious. Shocking. Relevant. Touching. Jaw-dropping." - Kelley D.

Gray Area
"Riveting and very eye-opening." - Janelle
"I left wanting to make change." - Heather

Pints & Pins
"Filled with very interesting characters." - Dean
"It was right up my alley." - Ben (get it?...)

"Thrilling and unpredictable, yet character driven." - Lenny

First Date
"'Sh***y' and funny!" - Cathy (you'd have to see the film...)

Molly's Girl
"Hilarious, emotional, brilliant, surprising, and evoking." - Crescentia

Spotlight: Matt Coatsworth & Varda Hardy
"...valuable networking opportunity with experienced filmmakers." - Suzie

Well gang, that was fun!  Maybe we'll do this again tomorrow.  One final day remains.  Now... Go See A Movie!
