Perhaps being force-fed wouldn’t be so bad if they gave you time to chew? The New York Film Festival is in its third week now, and I can feel myself getting numb. I still watch, but it seems harder and harder to get my head around the movies, or cram them into a few pithy paragraphs. Maybe it’s just the aftershocks from Inland Empire, I don’t know. In any case, I’ll leave reviewing Volver to Marcy and just say that it’s my favorite of the recent Almodovars.

Maybe I’ll put some clips from the press conference on YouTube later.
