So far the only outlandishly spectacular thing I've seen was Encounters at the End of the World, but I've liked slightly more than would be expected by assuming that the underlying distribution of the quality of films in the festival follow a Normal distribution. Maybe this means I'm generous with my opinions or that I or the festival programmers are decent at avoiding horrible things. Tomorrow I might see something about Meryl Streep or cannibal soccer players. But I also want to go to Times New Viking at Neumo's.
Really, though. You should keep an eye out for that Herzog if you like weird creatures and the things they study even just a little bit.
