  Movie Review: What the Bleep Do We Know? apparently knows a lotPDF files may take a moment to load

Perhaps it wasn't Alice who fell down the rabbit hole to Wonderland, but the human species as a whole. Has it ever occurred to anyone whether or not our experiences are actually true and if 'reality' is only a construct of our minds? How do know what reality is when all we have to depend on is the crap shoot reliability of the five senses? These are questions we probably asked ourselves high while stretched out on the high school football field.

  Movie Review: Sky Captain a blast from the pastPDF files may take a moment to load

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow has used the most modern of technology to create a futuristic past from past visions of the future. Certainly not the most straightforward of descriptions, owing mostly to the English language's insufficient number of verb tenses, but it's clearly what director/writer/computer animator Kerry Conran was aiming for.

  FilmFest Review: Investigations Into the Invisible WorldPDF files may take a moment to load

Ambient music group Sigur Ros aren't all that normal. They sing in a made-up language and occasionally refuse to title their songs. Bjork is undoubtedly strange. It's actually pretty difficult to come up with some aspect of her personality that could be called normal. After seeing Jean-Michel Roux's documentary Investigations Into the Invisible World, a startling truth emerges-Björk and Sigur Ros are probably among the least strange people in Iceland.

  FilmFest Review: American Short FilmsPDF files may take a moment to load

Harlem's low budget aerospace program, the intrigue of low-budget filmmaking, and the cold-blooded murder of John Stamos provide the highlights in this imaginative collection of shorts. As with any assemblage of shorts, some are stronger than others, but the good easily outway the bad in the first set of American shorts at the ciff.The top three: Old Negro Space Program is a parody of Ken Burns' documentary on urban black history.

  Movie Review: NothingPDF files may take a moment to load

Canadian director Vincenzo Natali of Cube fame has brought us another surreal existential displacement flick in the delightfully engaging Nothing.

Made by Natali in 2003, casts David Hewlett and Andrew Miller as best friends in the midst of a twisted and unrelenting urban Toronto. The two live together as childhood-friends-turned-roommates in a tiny house sandwiched between two freeways, free to enjoy life in their own way. At least until the problems arrive.

  FilmFest Review: Dead and BreakfastPDF files may take a moment to load

Zombie movie fans have had a stretch of good luck lately. Resident Evil's had some mixed reactions, but Shaun of the Dead received near unanimous praise. Now if Dead and Breakfast gets any sort of wide release, there'll be another slab of brain-eating goodness for fans of the recently deceased.

  Filmfest: After The Apocalypse is devestatingly goodPDF files may take a moment to load

As the old saying goes: A picture is worth a thousand words. This couldn't be truer than with director Yasuaki Nakajima's first feature length film, After the Apocalypse, a post apocalyptic drama where all of the people left alive after World War Three have lost the ability to speak.
