The last secret screening: some unheard-of Norwegian mockumentary supposing trolls were real. I kind of had a groan when I learned that this was the secret film but you know... as I watched it it kind of grew on me to the point now, like a month later (jesus I'm late on these write-ups) I have pretty fond memories of this film. I thought it was cool if not expected how they gave realistic treatment to some of the fairy tales i was familiar with (I'm sure there are a ton of Norwegian ones that I'm not but I definitely recognized the billy goats gruff), and the whole Christian subplot was pretty fun and not at all American and... I dunno, it was just a well-executed take on the idea. Certainly could've been a lot worse. I liked it.
It's been a pretty good festival for me. I feel like several previous years I had a feeling where I started off seeing a lot of crap, then later years I saw a lot of mediocrity, but this year I pretty much liked most of what i saw. Sure I liked some things more than others but I'd count them all as more than adequate. Did I already write this? damn.
