    Well, bad for them, lazy bastards! :)
    The Filmaster non-review was more about the event on which the film was shown than the film itself, so I did not find it useful to copy the whole thing here.

    Chris, you wrote a lot about the film and about how others see it but I'm interested in your opinion. Did you find Trash Humpers to be plotless mess with no value? Or perhaps you saw something new...

    Who was Robin Hood before becoming Robin Hood? And why should we care? Well, I didn't care. But it's not a bad film. It's watchable. It's just mediocre. Everything is mediocre except for Max von...

    I'm happy to see "The Father of My Children" getting into another festival. It's a very European piece of cinema, subtle, with a quite slow pace, but it left me feeling uneasy. It's both a tribute...

    Remarkable, old fashioned, brilliantly directed political fiction thriller, the weakest point of it being the story. Great acting, entertaining and thought provoking at the same time. Something both...
