On Sundays, while some people go to church, the film crazies in Austin, Texas go to the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. For us, there’s really no better way to spend a Sunday than the 4th day of Fantastic Fest 2010. Unfortunately, I only saw three movies on day four because I also had to make a pilgrimage to the football gods but one of them turned out to be my new favorite of the festival. Was it Eugenio Mira’s Agnosia, Jang Cheol-so’s Bedevilled or Mamoru Hosoda’s Summer Wars? Hit the jump to find out.
Multiple zombie apocalypses, mutilation with farm animals, a killer tire, musical terrorists, live pornographic theater: and that’s just the movies! There’s only one place where crazy, mind-bending contemporary genre films from all over the world come to play, and that’s Fantastic Fest. The sixth annual film festival takes places September 23-30 in Austin, Texas, and the first wave of films was announced Tuesday. Among the highlights are the new Takeshi Kitano flick Outrage, the Cannes film Rubber, and Ip Man 2, which topped Iron Man 2 at the Hong Kong box office.
