NW Film Festival
I went to Shorts 2 at the NW Film Festival, and was disappointed. The first film called Smile was the only decent one, because it was the only one that had a storyline. All the other films where random and tried way too hard to be "artistic". My least favorite was probably one entitled The Tourist, it was a excerpt from a film that Jack Nicholson was in and it was him played in slow-motion. It got worse because the "artist" had edited out all of the background, and replaced the audio with the sound of a wind gust. I sort of expected films like this to be at the festival but Shorts 2 was judge favorites, so I hoped for more and didn't get it.
