Austin Film Festival Diary – Day 5: Above the Hype and Below the Radar

By  · Published on November 5th, 2006

Feel free to sue me (you can have my entire Film School Rejects salary if you’d like), but I skipped out on the panels today in favor of catching up on some much needed sleep and some much needed hydration. Plus, I felt the need to get prepared for the movies of the night since I was gearing up for the highly anticipated, ire-raising Death of a President and the bloody, psychological trip Noriko’s Dinner Table.

Feeling well-rested and ready to go, I set out from the hotel after accidentally charging a twenty dollar can of nuts to my account, and took a seat in what ended up being a packed house. Everyone wanted to see what all the fuss was about. The real question is, should you, dear reader, bother? I’ll try to answer as best as possible with these brilliantly written reviews:

Death of a President

Noriko’s Dinner Table
