More on Words From the City

From Rob Hood:

I notice that Words From the City has been gaining a lot of praise. In the latest issue of Madman’s Directors Suite Newsletter, it is noted that the Brisbane International Film Festival is screening Words From the City

… which has the glorious honour of being the only film accepted into all Australian film festivals this year, and has already garnered a nomination for Best Documentary in this year’s AFI Awards.


You'd be surprised by the email I've received regarding the film and my review, actually. Its all been given in confidence though, so you all just going to have to put up with my slight obsession with the film and its reception now, but trust me, it's pretty funny. Incidentally, as the film is garnering such respect, now is the time to link my review round and cause everyone to get their underwear in a twist, in that pure Oh-My-God-He-Said-A-Bad-Thing-About-Australian-Art-Way.

Didn't read the review I wrote, and which was too negative to publish?

It's here.

Nothing to do with the actual content of your post, but are you enjoying St. Vincent? There's a great live video of Paris Is Burning here: http://pitchforkmedia.com/article/download/43760-st-vincent-paris-is-burning-live

I saw the video on Pitchfork and it went straight onto my "listen to this" list. Then I got drowned in albums to review, so I haven't had a chance.

I read your review. It actually didn't seem all that negative. They should have paid you the other 150 bucks.

yeah, i didn't think it was that negative, either. i mean, it's negative, but i could've spent a whole lot more time being harsh.

yeah, but that would have meant more time writing. the day i spent on it was more than enough.
