I've been eating mainly snacky things instead of full sit down meals, I'll be doing a "snacks on the run for MIFF" post soon.

Eats.drinks.

Von Haus

Continues to be my favourite bar in Melbourne. *paws at Von Haus* love you.

Jetsetting Joyce also loves Von Haus

Out

Cities on Speed #1
Boring. I thought it was going to document from an architectural/structural point of view the changing landscapes and needs of these cities. NOPE it focusses on one family per city and how it is effecting them. 2/5 (apparently the Bogota and Cairo - selection #2 - are the best)



Splice
What the hell was this movie? Were we supposed to find it funny? It started out as horror/thriller and landed in mutant rape squeal at the scream in disgust and laughter horror film. In any event I really enjoyed it! 3.5/5



How much does your building weigh Mr Foster?
A fitting homage to an amazing man and one of my favourite architects. This was truly superb and breath taking. 4.5/5 - an absolute must-see.



Life During Wartime
Todd Solondz swoon. On form, the rich colours, textures, sparse dialogue and amazing performances. I know when I really like something when my eyes glaze over and I feel like I'm drunk. Stunning. 4.5/5



Rubber

Quentin Dupieux could film a tyre rolling around in the desert and I would watch in rapture for hours. Oh wait. I did. Robert the psycho-kinetic, homicidal, amorous tyre. Hilarious, absurd and bizarre an A+ for imagination and was a wonderful late night session to see. The audience was hysterical. The soundtrack of course by Dupieux was excellent. All round great camp horror fun. 3.5/5



Videocracy
More politics less culture! I guess they kind of go hand in hand. A fascinating documentary no less, there was just something missing and I cant tell what. I recommend seeing it though NOW YOU UNDERSTAND why I would never go out with a wog boy. The final scene was just a posting of the statistic that Italy is ranked 114 in the world in regards to gender equality (there is around 180 countries in the world).
3/5



And everything is going fine
If I was a massive Spalding Gray fan I probably would have died a million deaths of swoon over this. But I'm not. Soderbergh is such a master director/editor he really is mind blowing the way he puts things together. 3/5

Cant find a trailer

The Disappearance of Alice Creed
A quadruple knife in the back scam flick. It was just.... Pretty shit to be honest. 2/5
